Introduction: Come in for a free try-out lesson to see if I'm the right piano teacher for you! Students of all ages (5+), late beginner level and up, are welcome. Lessons are tailored to fit each student's individual wants and needs. Background and experience: I am piano faculty at Normandale Community College and hold a doctorate degree in piano performance from the University of Minnesota, where I held a lecturer position in Piano Pedagogy until the summer of 2015 as well. I have taught over 500 students from beginner to music major, in both private and class settings, between the ages of 4 and 81. I also maintain an active performance career, both as a soloist and chamber musician. What you can expect: I am a compassionate, enthusiastic, and approachable teacher. Recurring qualities that my students have highlighted in their evaluations are patience, well preparedness, and engaging teaching methods that are rich in demonstration and invite the student to think "outside of the box." For more information, please take a look at my website. I look forward to hearing from you.

Ms. Karelse was very flexible with my level of skill and while I was at the level of "Chopsticks" she still provided the theory and practice knowledge of a student learning the "Sabre Dance".

Very natural and helpful teacher. Her vast knowledge and experience helped me develop as a musician. She took pride in my growth through her individual approach. I highly recommend learning from her no matter if you are an amateur or a professional.

My very first piano teacher and she is great! I was an adult student years ago, with no knowledge of reading and playing music. Without her kindness, patience, encouragement and her unique way of teaching, I would not be able to survive my first year of learning to play piano in a class. Truly a great teacher to have!

Elizabeth is a very inspiring and enthusiastic piano teacher. She is very serious and a nice person to work with. Take a few lessons and you'll see how much you will learn in a short time period.

I was fortunate to meet Elizabeth while studying at the University of Minnesota. She was truly a huge reason as to why I was able to make it through my piano degree requirements. She is a wonderful instructor and I would recommend her to anyone looking to learn!
