Growing up in an immigration family in Philadelphia, Mr. Nuissl began to play the violin at an early age as his mother had done. Listening to Beethoven in high school sparked his serious interest and led him to pursue a degree in Violin Performance at the New School of Music. Mr. Nuissl began his career as a freelance violinist with a part time job as a private school teacher but realized his greater love was for teaching and mentoring young people. He earned a Music Education degree at Immaculata University and has served The School District of Philadelphia as an itinerant strings teacher since 2010. Outside the classroom, Mr. Nuissl played in his church’s orchestra and was an active member of bible study. His kindness and dedication to his students is legendary, continuing throughout his illness and hospitalization. His loss is sadly felt by his many students, colleagues, and the School District of Philadelphia Music Education family. Sergei, we love you and will keep your tradition of excellence in music education alive.
