Phyllis Garriss was the founding director of the Lamar Stringfield Music Camp. She started the camp in 1979. Garriss felt strongly that music in the Wake County schools should be given full support by the community and wanted to work with the school teachers to build on the progress made in their school-year programs. This is still a primary mission of LSMC, whose faculty has included National and International clinicians, University professors, Wake County music educators, professional musicians and members of the North Carolina Symphony. The camp also provides scholarships every summer to those in need.
Garriss taught at Meredith College, DePauw University and Ball State University. She served as a National Secretary of the American String Teachers Association, as a member of the Music Educators National Conference, the Music Teachers National Association, the American String Teachers Association, Local 500 of the Musicians Association, and past president of the Raleigh Music Club. She performed with the Duke Symphony, Raleigh Symphony Orchestra and the Capital String Ensemble.
Margaret Garriss is a professional violinist, teacher and freelance musician who enjoys teaching both traditional and Suzuki students in private and group settings.

Garriss holds professional memberships with the American String Teacher’s Association, The Musician’s Association Local 500, The Music Teachers National Association, Music Educators National Conference, The Suzuki Association of the Americas, The Raleigh Music Club, Sigma Alpha Iota, and Pi Kappa Lambda. Since 1982, Garriss has served as an Associate Director, and eventually Executive Director for the Lamar Stringfield Music Camp held annually in Raleigh.
