Loy Koch

Loy is a Montana native and, for the most part, a locally grown musician. She started playing the violin in her school’s orchestra at age ten and joined the Billings Symphony five years later. She earned a Bachelor of Music Education from Montana State University and a Master of Music in Violin Performance from Temple University. Her musical studies also led to a summer at the Aspen Music Festival and a year at Indiana University. She is associate concertmaster of the Missoula Symphony and a member of the Black Tie Quartet. She loves hiking and running and has a new obsession for alpine skiing. Loy currently runs a private studio from her home in Missoula and teaches orchestra in a new program at Target Range School.
