Elizabeth is available for lessons in your home in the greater Seattle area. She teaches all experience levels and age groups. Lessons will be scheduled to fit with the student's availability whenever possible.

Elizabeth frequently employs technology in her lessons and encourages students to use it to enhance their learning and their practice.

Elizabeth grew up in a music-loving household and started playing the trombone at age ten. More than a decade later, she now plays a variety of styles including classical and jazz.

The Best! Elizabeth is both patient and at the same time challenging. My son is learning that work, and effort invested, lead to measurable improvement. And he is enjoying playing the trombone!

I have worked with Elizabeth for years and she is a fantastic colleague. I'm not sure if I've met anyone else to match her incredible work ethic.You can expect very creative and effective lessons from her - she has a knack for inventive problem solving that makes musical improvement really fun and transformative for her students. While she is extremely friendly and warm, she is also informative and knowledgeable - a great balance to look for in a music instructor!
