I have been teaching flute for 13 years and my some of my students have gone on to music school, while others have sustained a life-long appreciation of music. I specialize in communicating an understanding of phrase and musicality, focusing on the creation of a beautiful, resonant sound. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

About Liz R.

Hello! My name is Liz and I can't wait to meet you! I have been teaching private lessons since 2008 and I strive to create an environment for students to reach their fullest potential. It is my goal to cultivate skills for my students to develop a lifelong appreciation for music. I am currently available to teach lessons at your home, at my studio, and online.

I completed my Masters in Music Performance at Kent State University in May of 2017. Prior to this I received my training at Fredonia State University of New York in 2014 where I received a Bachelor of Music in Music Education and Music Performance. I look forward to helping you reach your goals!
