Elisabeth is an established voice and piano teacher in the New York City Area. She is a thoughtful and dedicated instructor with nearly a decade of teaching experience, and her students range from beginners to professionals. As a voice teacher, she has helped students audition for competitive music schools and The Voice, and has also helped others to be able to sing with more confidence in their community theaters, churches and karaoke parties. As a piano teacher, she has been excited to be able to help many beginning and intermediate students develop the musical and technical fundamentals that they need to excel in many different genres of music. Although Elisabeth primarily performs classical music, she loves applying her extensive technical knowledge to many different styles.

Elisabeth received her performance training and teaching certifications at Oberlin College and Conservatory of Music. She holds a Bachelor of Music in Vocal Performance from the Conservatory, and also a Bachelor of Arts in Theater from the college. Since graduating from Oberlin, she has been honored to train and work with many renowned teachers and coaches in States, and she loves imparting this knowledge to her students.

As a performer, Elisabeth has sung with Opera New Jersey, Opera Saratoga, Hubbard Hall Opera Theater, the Dell'Arte Opera Ensemble, and Martina Arroyo's Prelude to Performance to name a few. Some of her favorite performances have been the title role in Carmen, Hansel in Hansel and Gretel, Singer 3 in Conrad Susa's opera Transformations, and Zita and Ciesca in Gianni Schicchi.

Elisabeth also loves languages and enjoys instructing these as well. She is certified through Oxford Seminars to tutor English as a Second Language. She has coached students through their TOEFL examinations, and others through basic communication and daily skills. She is proficient in German and French, and is eager to help with conversation and test prep in these areas as well.

She teaches both out of her home studio in Lefferts Gardens, Brooklyn, and is happy to travel to her students' homes.

Piano

Hi! I played piano for 14 years, have a bachelor's in music performance from Oberlin Conservatory and have taught privately for a couple of years. I am happy to send a list of teachers if that would be helpful.

Sight Singing

I have a bachelor's in music from Oberlin Conservatory. I received high marks in the Aural Skills tests that I took in college. I am a professional opera singer, and I played piano for 14 years. I am happy to provide a college transcript if requested. In addition, I have sung for several churches in both solo and choral capacities. This often requires sightreading in front of a group of people. I studied music theory both before and during college and use this information to teach sight singing as well.

Voice (Music)

I have a bachelor's in Voice Performance from Oberlin Conservatory. Previous to that, I obtained a certificate from Julliard Pre-College in Voice Performance. I have been studying singing continuously since I graduated in 2008 with a nationally renowned voice teacher. I have performed professionally in several opera houses in and around NYC. In addition, I have been teaching singing lessons since college. I studied vocal pedagogy while in school and am certified to teach through Oberlin Conservatory.
