Elizabeth's lifelong passion for music and the arts drives her belief that learning music should be a positive experience for all. Lessons are tailored to meet individual student’s learning needs. Her teaching objective is to build the essential foundational skills that are vital for students to master and provide a smooth transition to intermediate and more advanced levels of study.
Elizabeth has studied the piano since she was eight years old. She studied with Dr. Lena Vozheiko-Wheaton in Vancouver, WA and Drs. Susan Chan and Daniel Immel at Washington State University Pullman, where she earned her Bachelors of Music in Piano Performance in 2005. Elizabeth earned her Masters of Music in Music Education and Music Technology from Boston University in 2017. Elizabeth learned to play contemporary style piano during her 11-year career as a worship director at Grace Foursquare Church and has continued that training into playing a wide variety of styles with the Leading Tones Band. Elizabeth is currently studying jazz piano - a journey that will not end anytime soon!

Elizabeth has been concurrently pursuing professional music and her private studio since 2005. She was on staff as the Worship and Arts Pastor at Grace Church in Camas, WA until 2015. Elizabeth has been pursuing her private studio full time since 2015, teaching over 30 hours of private students weekly and performing regularly around Clark County.
Elizabeth has found no greater joy than sharing her love for music with this generation of students, both youth and adult alike! She is married to her amazing husband of 15 years, Joshua; they have a darling son Michael and a sweet girl Natalie. They look forward to getting to know your family!
