Elisabeth also teaches piano
I have always loved making music and singing, and sharing the art of music with others. I teach care and cultivation of excellence in one's unique vocal instrument, healthy and graceful expansion of range, breath capacity, and focus. Great singing is born from dedicated, conscientious practice, belief in one's gifts, and a commitment to cultivating and nurturing them. Questions are welcome.

No better voice teacher than Elisabeth. Among the very best, anywhere. Lucky if you get her. Truly world class.
Serious but fun - October 24, 2012
By Jumi, Zurich Switzerland, Voice Lessons
During my 3-months stay in NYC, I took voice lessons with Elisabeth. She was such a nice, fun and professional teacher, I always enjoyed going to her lessons. In the past, I used to sing only pop music but thank to her I learned that classical songs were really beautiful and fun to sing, too! When my mother visited me in NYC, she also took a few lessons with Elisabeth and was very enthused as well. I really miss Elisabeth's voice lessons!

I am very pleased with Elisabeth and my son looks forward to attending his voice lessons with her. She is very patient and works very well with my son. I highly recommend her.
