Ages 5+

Teaching since:
February 1987

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!”

Elizabeta is very pleasant and patient, she puts me at ease. It is a pleasure to be in her company. I'm enjoying my lessons and I am motivated to practice at home.

My daughter adores Elisabetta, and with good reason. Elisabetta is an expert in the fine art of balancing warmth and gentleness with rigorous instruction and an insistence on the importance of technique.

My daughter has been playing piano for several years, and she wants to be treated as a mature tween, not a small child who must be praised for simply getting through a piece. On the other hand, she can also be hypersensitive and react badly to criticism; she will think someone is angry with her on the slightest provocation. In other words, she is a very tough customer! But somehow, miraculously, Elisabetta gets it perfectly right, and my daughter feels respected and encouraged.

I am extremely grateful to have found such a gracious and skilled instructor, and I'm very pleased with the progress my daughter is making.

My son has been practicing piano with Elisabetta for more than a year and the progress he has made during this period really made me happy and proud. My son not only learned the skills of piano but also gained the passion for music from Elisabetta, who demonstrated great professionalism in piano , as well as the zeal for music and the love for kids. She has a very organized approach to get kids interested in music, while not getting bored with basic skills. I start to realize (only after a year of my son's piano practice) how important it is to have a musician specialized in piano as a teacher for my son's continuous development of his piano skills. I am very glad that I have made a wise decision at the early stage. My son always looks towards to the piano lessons at Elisabetta's house and he can get very sad when we have to miss the lessons from time to time. It is still very surreal for me to watch a super active 7 year old boy sitting in front of the piano for hours or listen to the cds quietly for a long time recommended by Elisabetta. Both my son and I are very thankful to the great teacher.

Elisabetta is a very experienced teacher with great passion for both music and kids. She is able to inspire my son's interest in music while getting him working on the important basics of piano. My son demonstrated obviously improvement after only several lessons with Elizabetta. I wouldn't hesitate recommending her to any of my friends.

Take lessons is awesome

Take lessons has teachers and counselors that are great. They guide you how to go on with your lessons. You can learn in a teacher's studio or in your home.

She is wonderful! Ms. Elisabetta is very patient with both Pedro and Angela, and can adapt her style to their different ages and very different personalities. She has the patience of a saint, and the children are already picking up concepts, after only 3 lessons! Bravissima!
