Delta Strings quartet is composed of two violins, one viola, and one cello. 



Meet the Strings




When I was ten, I was introduced to my first little violin by an amazing teacher, Mr. Maloney, in my Northern California school orchestra class. What was really special about Mr. Maloney was his passion not just about the violin, but about music as a whole. He would tell us inspiring stories of composers and introduce us to the hidden stories folded within symphonies. I developed a great affection for the violin, and  a deep passion for music.  Today, I hope to inspire my own students to not just play violin, but develop a love for music, and I absolutely love being able to play my fiddle in such a wide array of places. I find myself playing Annie one night, Shostakovitch’s 6th another, and finishing the week with playing with the band at a Cafe. -Reylynn

She finds great joy when her  students join her  alma mater, the Sacramento Youth Symphony or pursue a degree in music. She spends her time outside of the studio and performing, chasing her preschooler, and running half marathons (not much more running than that of chasing her son).

Krystyna Taylor was born and raised in Santa Barbara, California and began playing cello in an after school music program in fifth grade. She quickly fell in love with the deep and dulcet tones of the instrument, as well as the free pass on chores the more she practiced. Realizing the power of the cello musically, as well as a way to manipulate adults in her life, she soon became adept at performing in public and honed her skills enough to start gigging in middle school.

During high school Krystyna joined and played with many youth and community orchestras in Southern California, and eventually earned a full scholarship to CSU, Sacramento to study cello performance starting in 1998. 

After moving to Sacramento Krystyna began teaching private string lessons at Kline music and began to establish herself as a cellist for hire in the local vibrant music scene and has recorded on over 50 albums and performed with many local musicians and bands, usually credited as “the cello player”.

In 2006 she founded and began conducting the K Street Orchestra which is an adult late-starters string orchestra, and in 2017 “Cocello” which is an all cello alternative orchestra which meets in the summers.

In addition to more musical things, Krystyna enjoys her dogs, her husband William and making ceramics.
