Who Is Coletrain?

About Coleman “Coletrain” Smith

Coleman’s passion for music and love for education is what led him to launch his first music academy in Decatur, Texas almost a decade ago. To date, Coleman has personally taught thousands of students all over the world and continues to do so through his newest location in Buena Vista, CO. Coleman’s love affair with music began with the violin at the tender age of 3 at which time he began studying the Suzuki Violin Method. During his formative years in the Suzuki Program, Coleman became one of the youngest people ever accepted to the Fort Worth Youth Orchestra, eventually having solo performances with the Dallas Fort Worth Pops Orchestra. Coleman was awarded a full Presidential Scholarship to the music department at Marywood University where he studied music performance and minored in music pedagogy (teaching) graduating Cum Laude.
