Viola, Violin, and Piano Lessons

Teaching music is my passion, and I offer virtual lessons in viola, violin, and piano through Zoom Teaching online allows me to reach anyone in the United States, no matter how far apart we may live. Through modern technology, my online lessons are as productive, informative, and enjoyable as in-person lessons! I also offer in-person lessons in the RVA/Richmond/Midlothian, Virginia area.

What People Say

Holding a Violin


Elizabeth is patient, friendly and teaches at a pace that works well for my daughter.  We are really enjoying the convenience of online lessons and being able to connect to a teacher across the country.



Elizabeth offered unbiased, honest, and essential information about each college I was considering. Her understanding and

compassionate aura proved that she truly wanted what was

best for me.

Playing Piano


Elizabeth is a very kind and supportive teacher! She takes the time to get to know you personally as well as to make sure you get the best experience and learning possible. She is unlike any other piano teacher I had!
