Hi! I am a graduate of Temple University's Boyer College of Music, where I earned a degree in Music Theory. Violin and tuba are my primary instruments. I originally began my studies at Boyer in the Music Education department, and through my time there I have a lot of experience teaching music, especially to kids. I have taught high school marching bands for the past five years, most recently as hornline tech for Ridley High School's marching band in the 2017 season.
I marched contra (tuba) in the Cadets Drum and Bugle Corps from 2011-2013. During my time at Temple I participated in the Symphony Orchestra, Concert Band, Diamond Marching Band, Tuba/Euphonium Ensemble, and multiple chamber groups. Musical groups with which I am currently involved include Port Arthur, Iris Freeheart, and Polkadelphia, and I have recorded as a studio musician for The Dull Blue Lights (formerly The Snails), No Thank You, Thin Lips, Chet Williams, and others.
I have also been studying German since a very young age and studied abroad in Germany in college. I earned a minor in German and am a member of the national German honor society, Delta Phi Alpha.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions!
Taught the tuba section during the 2014 season.
She answered all my questions quickly. She prompted me to play my first song!
Outstanding instructor, professionally gifted, helpful, patient and personable. I was fortunate to have found Elisabeth to teach my 9 year old son how to play the violin. Her teaching style was a perfect match for him and she was able to keep him motivated to play and improve and also achieve his goal of making the junior orchestra for his school.+ Read More
Elisabeth is patient and explains her suggestions for better playing techniques clearly and well.
She is knowledgeable and easy going so lesson didn't feel tense or uncomfortable.
