As soon as I realized that my daughter (now 12) had a “voice”, I searched for an instructor. My first choice was a fail. The woman didn’t listen to her and the lessons became boring and robotic. My daughter was very disappointed. We decided to move on. Then we found Elise. My daughter has THRIVED since! It has been almost three years now (both in person and online), and the progress has been nothing short of remarkable. Elise is engaging, energetic, attentive, fun and an exceptionally talented, patient instructor, who genuinely listens to my kid beyond what I could have ever expected. Three months ago she started to teach my son (8) piano. He adores her! Elise has a very unique quality that I find beyond incredible. As an instructor, she finds a way to CONNECT with her students! I recommend her entirely.

Elise is an amazing voice and piano teacher. I have taken lessons with her on both instruments and have learned so much! She is an incredible technician and is an overall fun and caring teacher. You are in good hands with this teacher!

Elise was a huge help teaching musical theatre techniques to our musical students. She helped with the actual singing as well as facial expression and movement. This was a huge help to our performers!
