Meet Liz - Master Piano Teacher
Liz believes that anyone can become a musician. No natural talent required! Talent can jump start things, but in the end it all comes down to effort and deliberate practice. A good teacher should not only teach you things you need to know, but also how to get the most out of your practice sessions.
Music has been a part of Liz's life for as long as she can remember. She started playing piano at age 5, and later played bassoon with the Wisconsin Youth Symphony Orchestra until she moved to Seattle after high school. In Seattle, she continued to play piano and studied bassoon under Arthur Grossman. In 2015 Liz met Andrew White and completed her ABRSM Grade 8 piano exam a year later, just before moving back to Wisconsin.
Liz credits music for her excellent memory and math skills, not to mention her time management skills that were drilled in by conductors at an early age. Being somewhat reserved and soft spoken, learning to perform has also served her well in numerous situations including public speaking and presenting as an adult.
When Liz isn't playing Chopin's Nocturnes or Satie's Gnossiennes on the piano, you might find her listening to heavy metal (although she appreciates all kinds of music), sewing, or playing with her two young daughters.
