- Teaches students:
- Ages 13+ and special needs
- Teaching since:
I love to teach. I have a few openings for students for whom I'm the right teacher. I say "yes" to your dreams of making music, acknowledge your passion and give you tools to improve your skills as a guitarist, songwriter, singer, basic keyboard theory and/or recording. We play in my studio in NYC or online.
"You are a great teacher and have helped me to grow in my skills as a musician and a person...I aspire to be a musician just like you.." HP, high school student in Elizabeth's guitar club
I wrote and performed "Relative Pitch," a one-woman musical comedy at NY's Cherry Lane Theatre, Off Broadway, toured with the Broadway cast of "Beatlemania." My songs have been heard on tv and in film. I've just composed a musical and am working on a ballet(!).
Whether she's enticing you with come-hither invitations or giving a deadbeat beau the boot, Elizabeth shows her depth and versatility as a wicked-smart contemporary singer/songwriter in Sleep Naked.
Elizabeth is a facile cross-genre writer, delivering an alluring, gospel-tinged lullaby in the album's title track, "Sleep Naked," while exhibiting her pluck in the strutting and self-assured send-off songs "I'm Too Beau'ful (for you)" and "One Last Look." Her talents even cover Western Swing with "Back Seat Driver," a good-time road trip replete with rapid-fire wordplay. Through it all, Elizabeth puts forth compelling turns of phrase and agile moments of melody, both as composer and singer.
Even when she's meting out stinging barbs, Elizabeth keeps her good humor, as evidenced by "Enlightenment" (with its erudite imputations) and "Oil" (an indictment of the fossil-fuel industry). But she turns on an emotional dime to render a heartfelt plea in the sultry, loping "Baby Please Come On Home" and serves up a haunting, evocative reverie in "Ferris Wheel."
As if singing, writing, and leading the band weren't enough, Elizabeth lays down some serious guitarwork on Sleep Naked. On acoustic, she is equally deft comping jazz-chord passages ("Enlightenment") as she is fingerpicking Piedmont-style blues ("Leave Me Alone"). When she dons an electric, Elizabeth coaxes slinky, lyrical lines from her Tele for "Sleep Naked" and punctuates the simple acoustic-bass texture of "Baby Please Come On Home" with tasty slide fills.
I continue to teach private students in person (Manhattan), on Skype, FaceTime, Whats App.

Elizabeth’s knowledge of music goes incredibly deep and her way of passing it along to others makes for very rewarding learning sessions. I highly recommend it!
This class is what makes me look foward to Wednesdays.
Working with Elizabeth is always so helpful. I get to spend time with great company and learn so much about my curiosities. Elizabeth challenges students in the right way and ultimately is a teacher that is there to help students grow, changing what they can do and their belief in what they can play.
An teacher that truly cares.
I’ve been studying with Elizabeth Rose for some time. She an excellent teacher, patient, kind and inspiring. If I could give her 6 stars, I would. She’s that good.
Elizabeth Rose is a uniquely talented singer, songwriter, teacher and performer. In her writing she combines skillful craftsmanship with an offbeat, humorous and insightful style. She is equally comfortable with touching acoustic melodies, hooky pop tunes or theatrical cabaret.
She is an excellent teacher with a very good ear and strong sense of rhythm and space. She has helped me greatly with both technical and performance skills, and is particularly good at honing in on a precise weakness in my playing and creating a methodology to overcome it.
Elizabeth is a beautiful person inside and out and it is always a pleasure to work with her and hear her perform.
