I am energetic, enthusiastic, bright, and a serious musician who is eager to help you develop your musical and pianistic talents to their peak level. To that end, I suggest appropriate literature for your desires, needs and growth, and I encourage some technical studies that help to aid you in facility and finger strength and resilience. As well, I have an exquisite Steinway piano which has a gorgeous sound. I respond to in-between lesson phone calls, and emails or texts as well. I am excited about what I have done for decades and hope to have you join my class of students.

I am 80 years old and was a piano student with Liz Wolff for about 9 year when she lived in Minneapolis. Liz is a wonderful instructor who pushed me to tackle more difficult and challenging music than I would have dared try on my own. While she was particular about both technical and musical issues, she always encouraged me to reach higher standards. She encouraged me to overcome my fear of performance. She was a friend as well as a teacher.

I’m a professional musician, teacher and performer. I’ve known Liz for 25 years and have greatly benefitted from my lessons with her. Her technical knowledge has improved my playing tremendously. Her musicianship is first-rate. She is supportive, encouraging and enthusiastic. She is also a lovely person to be around. I always feel excited and motivated after lessons with her.

I studied with Liz for a number of years, and I can't recommend her highly enough!!!
She brought my playing to a whole new level. She is excellent with the details of fingering and mechanics, as well as appropriate stylistic aspects for the music. She is great with both kids and adults.

I’m so glad to have lessons with Dr. Wolff! Her teaching is wonderful, especially her suggestions for my technique issues and music interpretation. And she is such a patient, knowledgeable, and great teacher! I would definitely recommend her to everyone.

I have been studying piano for more than half a century and have had the good fortune to learn from Liz both in high school and later in life. I've had some excellent teachers along the way, but Liz stands head and shoulders above them all. Her ability to reveal every detail of the music while helping me learn well beyond what I thought I could achieve has been one of the greatest rewards of my life. I will be grateful to her forever. Perhaps even longer.

If you want not only to learn, but be uplifted and inspired so the hard work of practicing becomes a joy, you should jump at the opportunity to study with Liz.
