I credit my first piano teacher for giving me the courage, technique, and love of music that has made me into the performer and teacher that I am today. Piano gave me a foundation for understanding and loving music and developing my musicianship. This passion has led me to receive a Bachelor of Music degree from the University of Michigan, and I have a Master’s degree in classical vocal performance at the Mannes School of Music. My goal now is to inspire my students with the same fundamentals and joy for music that my first teacher instilled in me. Beginning students of all ages are welcome, and styles that I teach include classical and pop. Lessons will focus on technique, reading, ear training, and basic music theory. Everyone is unique and has their own learning style, and I tailor my teaching to each individual. I love to helping others understand music better, play the piano, and achieve their personal musical goals. It would be a pleasure to help you learn!

Originally from Rome, Italy, Elisabetta immersed herself in musical and classical studies since an early age. Traveling with her family, she had the opportunity to experience the most prestigious music productions in Europe and the United States. The choice to be an active part of the music world as a professional was inevitable and only natural. She attained a Master’s Degree in Piano Performance and Music Teaching, from the Conservatory of Music Refice, Italy. She developed a long career teaching music, providing music education instruction, encompassing practice of an instrument, history of music, and music theory. She taught classes with approximately twenty-five students, maintaining a sharp, consistent focus on correlating music to academics. Through instrument instruction (piano, recorder, and key board) she was successful in developing skills in students such as discipline and concentration. The experience of practicing and producing beautiful music enhanced the self esteem of even the most difficult pupils, improving their achievements also in mathematics, science, language arts and other academic subjects. While teaching, Elisabetta never stopped performing for various Cultural Associations in Solo Concerts and Chamber Music. In New York for family and business reasons since 1999, Elisabetta continued her successful teaching career throughout these years, giving lessons to children and adults alike. Some of her students came from the Martha Graham School of Modern Dance, The Neighborhood Playhouse and Opera Singers. *** Lesson Details *** My lessons are pleasant, interesting and stimulating. I have the gift to make things easier. Step by step you go a long way, and become eager to go further. You will look at challenges as just bigger rewards. I was taught by very accomplished, intimidating Artists and Maestros… extremely demanding people. If you ever feel discouraged or a little doubtful about your abilities… believe me, I KNOW where you are coming from! We’ll walk together towards a priceless treasure that will be with you for life. In a few months, hearing something beautiful in the air, you will be able to say “I can play that!” *** Studio Equipment *** piano in a separate room seating for parents *** Travel Equipment *** Piano *** Specialties *** Classical
