"Liz's kind and patient manner engaged and encouraged our two children Liam (15) and Sidney (14) to practice and perform on the piano. She established a relaxed  rapport with both of them. She has obvious high skills and talent. Her broad range of knowledge  included a more modern repertoire tailored to the children's personalities that maintained their interest and allowed them to experiment freely. The convenience of her coming to our home was greatly appreciated and she was very considerate when schedules had to be adjusted. I would highly recommend Liz. She was a pleasure to have in our home and an asset to our children's enjoyment and advancement in music."

"Liz taught my 9-year old daughter for two years. My daughter, not so enthusiastic at the beginning, now practices piano without us asking her. She plays well and more importantly with confidence. Liz did a great job in teaching her." 

"Liz is an excellent piano teacher. She works seriously in her lessons. She is responsible, consistent and reliable."

"Thank you for welcoming me with a smile every lesson.  When I got to piano class after a bad day, I could easily forget about my problems."

"As an adult piano student, it was a little bit difficult to start learning a new instrument and getting used to it. Even though I play the guitar, piano has a different technique and approach.  Liz made the learning process fun and easy to understand and when you have a question, Liz is there to answer it. She is the type of teacher that encourages you to practice and improve always. She is awesome."

​"Through music, you've taught me about expression, creativity, and musicality but you've also taught me things away from the piano like patience, responsibility and discipline.  I want to thank you for never giving up on me!"

Piano Lessons with Liz

 

Learn how to play the piano from the comfort of your own home - all you need is keys and a can-do attitude! I offer a student centered curriculum that is primarily concerned with developing musical literacy within each student. My goal is that my students feel confident interpreting, creating and performing. A musician has many skills which they draw upon; often simultaneously. These include a strong sense of rhythm, ability to read music off of a page, playing by ear, a sense of comfort with their instrument and an understanding of musical structure & style.

 

I want to help you sound good, and enjoy yourself when you play. To achieve this, we look at a wide variety of pieces as well as explore improvisation, arranging and composition at the piano. Students are encouraged to perform at events throughout the year to celebrate what they have accomplished as well as build confidence and performance skills. I offer the opportunity to prepare for exams and a variety of music festivals and competitions as well as be involved in the community. High school students can earn credits through their participation in exams and volunteer opportunities.

 

I currently offer private in home lessons in midtown Toronto to students of all levels. Click here to read my piano lesson policies.
