Piano Lessons for Young Beginners Hello Lincoln Community! I’m Liz, UC Berkeley B.A. in music and psychology, with 20 years of classical music training, including 12 years of orchestral/choral studies and 7 years of music instruction experience.
I’m excited to work with more young pianists and help all students build lifelong music skills! My lessons are supportive and creative environments with focuses on piano technique, sight-reading, and music theory.
All of my lessons take place in your home – there’s no need to travel, I’ll come to you! Scheduling is flexible, and payment is per lesson. I’ve also worked with several music classes throughout Brookline Public Schools, and am currently working with two families at the Lincoln School. I would be happy to provide references!
