Elizabeth H.

Conshohocken, PA

About Elizabeth

Elizabeth has been praised for her clear ringing soprano voice, excellent comic timing, and warm and enlightening performances (The News Journal of Wilmington, DE). She is a versatile singer and actively performs in musical theatre, operetta, and opera. She is also an established and respected voice and piano teacher.

Elizabeth was most recently seen as Joanie in The Full Monty at Candlelight Theatre in Delaware. Other recent performances include June in Musical of Musicals: The Musical and Peaches/ Baby Jane in Jerry Springer: The Opera with Bootless Stageworks in Wilmington, DE, solo perf
ormances with the New Voices Cabaret at the Society Hill Playhouse in Center City, and Woman 2 in My Way: A Musical Tribute to Frank Sinatra with Mainstage Center for the Arts in Blackwood, NJ. She has performed numerous leading roles with Philadelphia area Gilbert and Sullivan companies, most notably appearing as Angelina in Trial by Jury with The Savoy Company, winning Best American Production at the 2011 International Gilbert and Sullivan Festival. Her G &S performance credits include the roles of Patience (Patience), Yum-Yum (The Mikado), Rose Maybud (Ruddigore), Phyllis (Iolanthe), and Fiammetta (Gondoliers). Additionally, she has pioneered roles in new operas, including Gwendolyn in The Crowded House at the 2010 Philly Fringe Festival and Zelda in Black Horses with OperaDelaware at the 2009 Wilmington Fringe Festival. She "tackled the challenging score with gusto, her beautiful soprano and excellent diction winning in even the highest vocal points" (The Community News of Wilmington, DE).

Elizabeth holds an M.M. in vocal performance from West Virginia University, where she was featured in numerous WVU Opera Theatre productions and was the soprano soloist with WVU Choirs in Faure's Requiem and Handel's Lord Nelson Mass. While at WVU, Elizabeth resumed taking lessons at the piano, which she had previously studied for many years, and exceeded the piano proficiency level required by the university. She also holds a B.A. in music and international studies from Emory University. Elizabeth has studied and performed internationally, both at the American Institute of Musical Studies in Graz, Austria, where she was the recipient of the Lemmonds Scholarship, and at the Bel Canto program in conjunction with L'Arena di Verona opera company in Verona, Italy.

As a graduate assistant at WVU, Elizabeth taught voice lessons to music education and performance majors as well as a course on vocal pedagogy. After graduating, she served as adjunct faculty, in which capacity she taught vocal repertoire and opera theater. She has maintained a private studio since 2005, in which she instructs students in voice and piano.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a fun, enthusiastic teacher who cares deeply about her students and their growth as musicians and people. I believe teaching works best when students are relaxed, having fun, and are actively engaged in the learning process. Musical skills depend upon muscles, so it is important that you practice what we work on during lessons at home if you wish to see real progress. I will work hard along with you and ask for your input during lessons; we are partners in the learning process.

My specialty is the voice. I teach classical vocal technique with an emphasis on the body-mind connection. Through the course of my training, I have studied the Alexander Technique, which is a method that has been used by actors, musicians, and athletes to find optimal body-mind coordination to achieve better results. The voice is the only instrument that is literally your body, so we will be using these tools to improve posture, breathing, and resonance. By learning a healthy vocal technique, you can expect improved tone quality, an expanded vocal and dynamic range, greater resonance, increased agility, improved diction, and more. Healthy vocal technique can be applied to any genre, but I work mostly with classical and musical theater repertoire as this is my area of expertise.

I am also an established piano teacher and have had much success teaching beginning and intermediate students from ages 4 to 91 in various styles of music. I believe it is important for students to learn how to read and interpret written music as well as understand the structure behind it, so in addition to learning musical basics, I incorporate music theory into lessons. I encourage my piano students to learn how to read lead sheets and create chord accompaniments as well, which opens the door for comfortably playing in all sorts of styles sooner than would be possible by classical approaches alone. I also work on improvisation and songwriting with my piano students.

Whichever you choose to study (voice, piano, or both), I tailor lessons to suit each student's needs. I would like to enable you to meet your musical goals, whatever they may be.

*** Studio Equipment ***
An upright piano, a designated music room, vocal and piano music materials, metronome, full length mirror, ability to record lessons in my studio

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in classical and musical theater repertoire. I also have training in Alexander Technique.

Elizabeth is the best teacher I could ever have! She has helped me gaining confidence when I started singing in a middle school play and now that I have a main role in a high school play, her coaching and support have been priceless! She is my compass, guiding me in the right direction! I highly recommend her!

Elizabeth is wonderful with couching to improve voice quality and singing technique. Her sensitivity and professionalism is definitely plus. Getting valuable advise to correct and to improve singing habit is very important to me.

Thank you so much for recording the lessons as I could review and practice along with you.

I am happy with the three lessons which I took; and, hope to continue my voice lessons with her. Keep up the excellent work ~

Best wishes,

A gem

Elizabeth, is a wonderful teacher. She is very professional, knowledgeable and encouraging. My 12 year old loves her, and in the few months that she has been seeing her, has made big steps in her performing arts goals. I am really glad that Elizabeth is there for my daughter, and I know we will be taking lessons from her for a very long time .

Benjamin K.

Glenside, PA

About Benjamin

I grew up in Glenside moved to Pittsburgh for school and came back because I love it here...I've been playing for 17 years and have a smorgasbord of influences from Zeppelin to the Beatles to Phish to Radiohead to the dirty projectors to Jay Z to Kurt Rosenwinkel & John Scofield. I have been composing and working with original bands for some 11 years and play regularly in the city and up and down the east coast. I have also been teaching for the past 11 years all over the Philadelphia area. i teach from a method I derived myself from years of learning both in and out of school. I think teachin
g music is both aural as well as visual and encourage students to listen to music a lot. most of all i feel that music is fun and the students should enjoy learning so i incorporate their favorite artists and favorite songs into our studies. for serious students I love theory and love sharing what I've discovered over the years.

*** Lesson Details ***
I'm a very laid back guy but I take my playing seriously. music is my life and there's nothing I enjoy sharing and expressing more. I learned to love playing guitar when I was 12 from the coolest guitar teacher ever. he had a vibe that i gravitated toward and encouraged me in just the right ways to get me believing in myself. I try to encourage my students the same way. music should be fun above all and sculpt my lessons to each students individual needs so that they are better equipped to succeed.

I expect them to provide guitar/bass/piano

Ben was fabulous! He taught me music I wanted to play at a speed that fit for me and simplified harder songs for a beginner like me to still be able to play a song I loved! Great teacher and picks up on your strengths and weakness. I would highly recommended him as a teacher! He's also funny and would make lesson's enjoyable! He was friendly to my dog and birds as well :)

Ricky G.

Ambler, PA

About Ricky

Hi! Thanks for checking out my profile. My students call me "Mr. Rick." I teach acoustic guitar lessons for kids and adults, beginners through intermediate.

I'm the ideal teacher for those who want to play by "ear" while learning the essentials of chord structure, music theory, rhythm, and proper technique for strumming and playing the instrument.

I like making people laugh and having them relax and feel comfortable at our lessons together.

I enjoy working with people coming back to guitar, or just starting for fun because they love the guitar!

For students who want to
play at open mics or in a band, lessons include coaching on performance, and how to pull it all together (including how to properly use the mic and vocal techniques for singing while playing guitar).

For students with aspirations of being in a band, or singer-songwriter, I teach the essentials of songwriting and the basics of music recording, production/engineering and music business.

Students have opportunities to perform at recitals and other venues, plus learn more about the music business, and basics of music production and sound engineering.

*** Lesson Details ***
I'm a patient and supportive teacher who offers a relaxed and comfortable learning environment for acoustic guitar students, and also for students interested in singing while playing the guitar.

For guitar beginners, we start with the basics including notes, scales, chords and chord patterns, rhythm, and strumming technique. Students start off by learning songs they enjoy and are interested in playing.

As students advance, or for those with previous lessons or who are self-taught, we focus on advanced chord structure and patterns, music theory, and rhythm guitar technique.

For students interested in singing while playing, I coach them in vocal technique and exercises for pitch and vocal strength. We work on performance skills, for both live performance or in a recording studio.

For students with aspirations of being in a band, or singer-songwriter, I teach the essentials of songwriting and the basics of music recording, production/engineering and music business.

I bring extra value to my students through my experience as a performing songwriter, recording artist, and music producer. I've taught college level courses, and have been a panelist at music industry conferences.

Students have opportunities to perform at recitals and other venues throughout the year.

After 30 years I finally decided to learn how to play drums. Kevin clearly knows what he's doing in any genre of drumming! It seemed like every lesson he had a clear/thorough plan, didn't stress me out by teaching to rapidly, or bore me by going to slowly. A very solid teacher.

Kevin has somehow broken through to him. Fun lessons. Incredibly useful homework. Couldn't recommend him more.

Rachel is amazing! She is very affirming, yet pushes you to challenge yourself. She believes in your ability and teaches techniques that are suited to your unique vocal talent and ability. She also provides helpful explanations and works with you to find ways of understanding your body that make sense to you. Very intelligent and caring as well. If I still lived in the same city as her, I would be taking lessons with her now!
