Learn to play trance inducing Viola with the help of a classical Viola soloist and teacher
Intermediate - Expert Viola! I shall guide you through your passage-work, intonation, vibrato, sliding, presence, and solidity. I can also encourage musical intuition and imagination for creative students and teach them how to be independent thinkers. Therefore, I can tailor the student’s personal curriculum to achieve their greatest musicianship. I teach Suzuki and Traditional methods with utmost observance and give great clarity on the student's progress. I have performed as a classical soloist, in chamber groups, and with a full orchestra. Additionally, I have experience in modern popular music. I help my students understand their body, the importance of both mental preparation, and the knowledge of how to become completely comfortable during their practice time and their performance time. I love being able to use my extensive worldwide experiences to galvanize the interests of my students. I have been fortunate to have lived in so many places, to have studied with the greats and near-greats, and to have learned so much more than music technique.
About Elizabeth B.

Hello! My name is Elizabeth and I have a Bachelor's degree in Music Performance. Starting my serious music endeavors at the Curtis Institute of Music, I traveled then to Vienna, Austria (one of the largest musical communities in the world!) where I am currently making my Master's degree in Chamber Music at the Universität für Musik und Darstellende Kunst. This year in January and May 2022, I performed as a Concertmaster with the CMP-Classical Vienna Orchestra for the official Viennese New Year's Competition as well as a guest concertmaster of the Cologne New Philharmonic Orchestra. I play and teach both Violin and Piano and have more than 7 years of teaching experience in locations such as Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia (online) and currently USA. I strongly believe in mind and body wellness as well as living a healthy lifestyle. I started learning Yoga from the age of 14 parallel to my intense musical studies and continued practicing throughout college years. I am in the process of completing a 200 hour Yoga Teacher Certification program and continue practicing and tutoring! Most importantly, have fun in your journey and fire up your passion with dedication! - - - Elizabeth began Violin and Piano lessons in Los Angeles. She was accepted at the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia when she was twelve years old and took masterclasses with world-renowned soloist Ruggiero Ricci in Palm Spring and then with the highly acclaimed teacher, Boris Kuschnir in Vienna (Austria), afterwards traveling to East Asia. Currently, she is studying at the Universität für Musik und Darstellende Kunst in Vienna (MDW) where she will be doing her Master's studies in Chamber Music. She became very aware of the importance of Mind-Body connection and took holistic approaches. Elizabeth started learning Yoga from the age of 14 and continued practicing throughout her college years. She is now completing her 200 hour Yoga Teacher Certification. Elizabeth performed multiple tours in Germany for several consecutive years. She premiered with the Paganini Concerto No. 4 in Germany (live recording released by JPK Musik) and Bruch Concerto in China under the baton of Volker Hartung with the Cologne New Philharmonic Orchestra. She recorded the majority of the violin score for the documentary, “Paul Mellon: In His Own Words”, which premiered at the National Gallery of Art in Washington. In 2018 (Germany), she played a newly-written concerto by English composer, Alexander Webb-Mitchell. She also performed as a soloist with the Pacific Symphony under Carl St. Clair; in an open auditorium holding about 25,000 people. Other notable events include her featuring as a solo artist with the Israel Chamber Orchestra, Feng Yuan String Chamber Orchestra, and Royal Bangkok Symphony Orchestra; performing the Antonio Vivaldi “Four Seasons” under Wim Steinmann and she even performed twice at the Kremlin Museum in Moscow. She also volunteers as an artist for the FSP: Fifty Shades of Purple Against Bullying, a non-profit organization that stands for resilience and community support aside from her horticultural practices.
