I have been involved in music all of my life. As a child I played trumpet in band and sang in school and church choirs. My favorite movies were musicals and they still are my favorite. Music was my major in college, which included singing, dancing, acting and playing musical instruments. I like all types of music. As a school teacher, I taught 3rd. grade through high school, everything from band and choir to musical theater. I also taught private students, of all ages, piano, guitar, voice and most of the wind instruments.

I love to sing, I love to act and I love to teach! I have been teaching for over 10 years and sincerely value bringing music and theater into people’s lives. My teaching philosophy is simple; anyone can sing, each person has something wonderful to offer and everyone deserves a chance to shine.
With that in mind, here is a little background on me and my journey to becoming a teacher.
I graduated from California State University, Northridge in 2005 with a Bachelor’s degree in Music Education with an emphasis on voice and choral conducting. At the age of 15, I was accepted into the California State Summer School for the Arts on a full merit scholarship in the field of Theater. There, I studied acting, directing, singing, writing, stage combat, voice, set design, lighting and sound. I performed as a member of the Masanga Marimba Ensemble for ten years, singing and playing music from Zimbabwe, South Africa, Central and South America. As a group, we have toured all throughout California, Arizona, Colorado, Oregon and Washington, playing at world music festivals, charity concerts, weddings, private parties and more. I have been singing in choirs since the third grade and was a member of The Northridge Singers (named Choir of the World 2003) for three years. In college, I was the Vice-President of the MENC (Music Educator’s National Conference) CSUN chapter and received a recognition award for my work as a singer with the Women’s Chorale and an achievement award for my work as a student teacher in the Music Education department. I have been singing and acting for over 20 years and have been directing musicals and teaching voice since High School. My passion for directing and teaching started in a high school elective class called Musical Show Production. This is the class that I began to write, produce, direct and perform in my own original, full-length musicals. For the past 6 years, I have been a classroom music teacher at a private school in southern California. There I taught grades Kindergarten through 8, music, musical theater, acting, choir, tone chimes, scenic design, art, dance and character development. I recently moved to the bay area and am currently directing the musical, Beauty and the Beast and teaching voice, musical theater and acting.
I have been living out my dream as a performing arts teacher and have had the honor of working with the most wonderful students over the years. I can’t wait to meet you and can’t wait to see you shine!!!

After graduating California Institute of the Arts with a multi-focus on several aspects of music including African dance, Indonesian gamelan, songwriting, recording, classical voice and piano, folk guitar, and more, Liz had the excellent opportunity to teach theater to a local musical theater summer youth program. All summer, she taught class sizes ranging from 10 to 26 students of the ages 5-10. Her initiative later led to being hired at this local community theater. Along with this theater teaching experience, she has been teaching piano, guitar, ukulele, flute & voice lessons for over 9 years. Her students have gone from knowing nothing about music to learning and performing entire pieces on their own as well as even auditioning & for agents and becoming signed artists in Los Angeles. Liz knows that it is her place in the world to teach music & spread positivity through her own music and would love nothing more than make learning music a positive and fun experience for everyone.
