About Lisa N.

If you don't see the time slot you are looking for, please reach out to me: I can often accommodate other times upon request. Lisa's first formal introduction to music came when her mother, a masters student at the Eastman school of Music in Rochester, enrolled her in violin lessons at age 6. The family moved to Miami, FL, but Lisa chose to move back north to attend college at the University of Rochester, and continue her musical studies at the Eastman School. In 1989, she moved to Cupertino, California; here she was able to play in many San Francisco Bay-area musical ensembles while pursuing a career in computer engineering. In 2017, Lisa retired from the computer industry to pursue music on a full-time basis, and completed a degree in Music Education at the University of New Hampshire. When not holding a saxophone, Lisa enjoys quilting, fast cars, and playing in the Freese Brothers Big Band. Check out my jazz group, contemplationjazz . com!

Awesome teacher! Took several years off from playing clarinet, and Lisa helped me get going again. Best thing I ever did was to start taking music lessons again!
