Hi, there! My name is Elizabeth and I can't wait to meet you! I've been teaching private lessons since 2012 and have loved helping my students get into esteemed education programs, succeed in competitions, ace auditions, and gain a sense of mastery over their voices. I went to Carthage College and earned a degree in Musical Theater in 2011, and Bowling Green State University for my Masters in Vocal Performance/Opera in 2015. I'm a friendly and open-minded person and I would describe my teaching style as efficient, creative, and fun. I've worked with students of all ages, backgrounds and abilities to achieve a multitude of different objectives. I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

I’ve been taking lessons from Elizabeth for a few months now - I had done voice lessons growing up and am now starting to get back into singing. She has been very helpful, and I really feel like I’ve been improving quickly! She’s very knowledgeable about vocal technique and has been great about helping me strengthen my weak spots and break bad habits.

Elizabeth is a very nice and competent vocal trainer. She always encourages me to try new exercises that help me a lot to improve my singing skills. I also feel very comfortable taking classes with her, and I think that one of the basic things for me when it comes to learn how to sing, a nice atmosphere is necessary to grow faster. She is also helping me with my English pronunciation. I would definitely recommend her.

Elizabeth is an amazing tutor. She is very friendly and funny and makes you feel comfortable doing all kinds of exercise. She collaborated with me on what I wanted/needed to work on most. She helped me improve singing a song that I chose through many elaborated techniques. I learned a lot even though I only took two lessons (because I left the country after that).

Elizabeth is fantastic! In the first session, she was able to diagnose my singing problem (pain when I sing), and taught me a few exercises that fixed it immediately. I've only had a few lessons, and I'm already much better at singing. Thank you, Elizabeth! You're the best!

Elizabeth Hood was my voice student for two years as she pursued her Master of Music in Vocal Performance at BGSU from 2013 - 2015. She is very musically astute, loves to be challenged, very skilled with foreign languages, and possesses a wonderful voice! Her voice is stunningly beautiful and easy, especially in the coloratura repertoire. She sang the role of The Queen of the Night from Mozart's Die Zauberflote in Germany last summer and literally brought down the house. She has wonderful command of her instrument and I know her to be an experienced and devoted voice teacher. It's my pleasure to recommend her teaching skills in voice.

Liz is an amazing teacher, she understands the voice in a way I've never encountered. She is very professional, and I made concert choir at my school! She really helped, thanks so much Liz! And she is pretty.
