Paula Oltman (Strings) graduated from Walla Walla College and Loma Linda University Graduate School, with a BS in Nursing and an MS in Community Health Nursing (emphasis in teaching). She began studying the violin in 3rd grade and continued lessons through college. She has played 1st violin with the Walla Walla Symphony, North Idaho Symphony Orchestra, Oregon East Symphony, and Inland Northwest Musicians. She volunteers her time at HJA because she loves music and desires to instill this same love for good music in young children.
Her group violin lessons and orchestra practices at HJA emphasize music as a ministry and encourage students to share their God-given talents and time as a means of blessing others.
