Introduction: I am a professional opera singer and teach both classical voice and piano lessons. My in-person studio is in Fountain Valley, CA and I work with students remotely all over the US. I work as a teaching artist and singer with the Los Angeles Opera and the Houston Grand Opera. I previously worked as an adjunct professor of voice and have 2 degrees in voice performance from Cincinnati Conservatory of Music and Rice University. I have over 15 years of competitive piano experience. Voice students learn classic technique, musical theater technique and pop styling. We work finding each student’s authentic sound, connecting to the breath, performance techniques, connecting deeper with their emotions while singing, and how prepare for auditions and competitions for advanced students. We spend and equal amount of time developing proper technique and applying it to songs. Singers will learn to sing songs in Italian/German/French/English, as well as musical theater standards and pop songs. Piano students learn all of their major/minor scales, music theory, proper finger technique, classical songs, pop songs, memorization and performance techniques. Consistent practice habits are discussed every lesson in a safe and encouraging way to keep students progressing every week. All ages and levels are welcome, as I believe music should be apart of everyone's lives. Piano students must be at least 5yrs old. Adults at all levels are welcome! I love watching students figure out how to sing/play the piano with more ease. Both singing and playing piano are such enjoyable and invigorating activities that challenge the mind body and heart. I encourage authenticity in each of my students and help them tap into their innate creative resources. Rate is $120/hour and $60/30min.

Liz is a WONDERFUL teacher: organized, patient, kind, and thoughtful! My daughters have been taking virtual piano lessons with Liz, and the growth and learning has been exponential. Liz makes the lessons fun, and she engages with them on a developmentally appropriate level all the way through (they are both in elementary school). Liz is very communicative and available to us, as well. She has a clear curriculum, and she communicates her expectations directly with the kids and with us. She has great suggestions for music learning resources, too. Our daughters are reading music and playing the piano!! Liz is awesome! We highly recommend!!

I started taking lessons with Liz at the start of my junior year. That year was the most transformative year for my voice. Everything about my singing had become so much better and my friends started saying they’ve never heard me sing like that. Liz knows exactly what to fix and how to fix it. I’ve never had a voice teacher that I’ve worked better with. She knows so well how to communicate and work with you through any issue. The thing that I appreciate most is how supportive she is. She has helped me be so much more confident in my singing and I don’t know if anyone else could have done that. I’ve never felt insecure or scared around her she is just such a warm presence. If anyone asks me about a recommendation for a voice teacher, I would recommend her without question.

My daughter has been taking Liz's voice lessons for a year, and I can see and hear huge progress. This huge progress is also confirmed by professional vocalists at school, choirs, auditions etc. Liz managed to turn each voice lesson into a bright and unique experience, full of fun and learning. Every lesson they would tackle a new challenge, and almost every lesson there is a breakthrough, and this is what makes them such a unique and great experience, producing a lot of happiness. Liz always appreciates the student's current state and adjusts the lesson agenda and workload such that it could be the most productive and efficient. I would definitely recommend taking Liz's lessons for everyone!

Liz is helping me learn to sing properly. I had no idea how to do it before! She's very patient and kind and she's fully engaged with our lesson. I'm getting better every week and that feels great! She has a nice room for the lessons and nice pets. I would definitely recommend her to anyone who wants to improve their singing and have fun doing it.

Doing lessons with Ms. Liz is so much fun and very enjoyable. She made starting lessons very comfortable for someone that had never done voice lessons before. Not only did she help improve my singing, but we also talked about more fundamentals, such as vocal health. Her flexibility with in person and online lessons make things very flexible when scheduling. She is very easy going and always positive in our lesson time. I enjoy taking lessons with Liz so much, and I would recommend anyone (beginner or advanced singer) to take lessons with her!
