Lesson Details

Piano

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate

I hold a degree in Music Education and specialize in teaching children piano lessons. I have over ten years teaching experience and also teach voice and guitar. I believe learning music should be a fun and rewarding experience and it brings me great joy to share my passion with my students. I teach the fundamentals of note reading, music theory, ear training, sight reading, and technique. I create a safe environment where students feel able to open up and express their emotions through music and have fun doing it!

Elizabeth delivers an exceptional lesson experience and ranks in the top 15% of our teachers nationwide.

Ages 4+ and special needs

Teaching since:
2008

I am a professional singer, pianist, songwriter, and guitarist. I graduated from University of Northern Colorado with a degree in Music Education and have been teaching and performing for over 10 years.

I teach piano students of all different ages and experience levels but specialize in teaching young beginner children. I can teach students to read music and pursue classical excellence, to learn how to play contemporary music using chord sheets, or both depending on the goals and preference of the student.

Voice students can expect to improve week to week in their vocal technique. Every voice has a unique timbre; I teach students to release built up tension and apply foundational techniques in order to unlock their own individual sound. I can help any student to sing with freedom, confidence, and expression.

I tour the nation with my band and have a deep passion for performing. As a professional musician I offer insight into what it means to be an artist and foster that creative force in all of my students. I love sharing my love of music with my students and look forward to meeting you and helping you become a better musician!

My 7 year old took piano lesson after one year of break, but was able to play 1/3 of the song (which she was playing more than a year ago) with both hands nicely after just one lesson with Elizabeth. Magical!
It was the first lesson with Elizabeth and I’m very excited about continuing her fun lesson!

Elizabeth is kind-hearted, patient, supportive, knowledgeable, encouraging, and talented. All the things you'd want in a mentor. I'm enjoying my piano and voice lessons very much and planning to continue them.

Elizabeth is an amazing teacher for my daughter. She is pacient and calm but makes the lessons engaging. My daughter looks forward to her lesson everyweek and has progressed in her books much quicker than we expected! We can’t recommend Elizabeth enough!
