Elizabeth is a professional piano teacher and has taught piano/keyboard lessons for over 18 years to children ages 5 and up and to adults of all ages. She is a graduate of Columbia College and has a Bachelor of Arts in Music and Arts Administration. She started playing piano at age 7 and had many years of formal classic and pop piano lessons. She's taught piano at a music studio for over 13 years and had a waiting list. She has been an accompanist for several groups including various college and high school choral groups and vocalists.

Liz loves teaching all ages whether children or adults. She loves teaching beginners/newbies and watching them progress and find creative expression through music.

Teaching Style
I tailor lessons to meet each individual's needs and learning styles/abilities. I use method books along with popular music methods and let the student pick music they like to go along with it. Lessons include harmonization, ear training, transposing, improvisation, and multi-sensory learning. I believe in positive encouragement, patience and a supportive environment to help build student's confidence as they learn.
Also, I specialize in helping students that are especially nervous about taking lessons. The studio I taught at often recommended me for students that were afraid, more sensitive or shy with lessons.
I believe teachers should always be learning as well. I study, research, attend seminars and look for new ways and methods to improve lessons and grow as a teacher.
Would love to help bring the joy of playing piano/keyboard to you!

Elizabeth is a great teacher with many years of experience. I am learning faster than I imagined I could! Her teaching methods are far superior to other ones I have tried in the past. The piano is a wonderful instrument of which I plan to master very soon with Elizabeth's great help. I recommend anyone interested in learning to play the piano to take lessons from Elizabeth. Many Thanks!
