Liz teaches braille music and also teaches theory to both sighted and visually impaired pupils. Liz is part of the Cambridge Suzuki group working alongside piano, violin and cello teachers, organising book recitals and joint concerts. Liz is also a member of the Ely Sinfonia orchestra and performs with them when she is available.
Recently she has been involved in a film about Louis Braille and Braille music, directed and compiled by Michael House. She was filmed teaching and talking about the value of braille music. She was also filmed performing alongside the other musicians involved in the film featuring a piece called Hope, written by a young blind teenager.
Liz has a strong desire to further her own performance ability in all areas and attends courses nationally and internationally. She is an inspiration to all who meet her.
I'd like to congratulate all of my pupils who performed amazingly at the King's Ely Young Musician of the Year 2020 competition. A special mention goes to Victoria who won the overall competition and to Lauren who won the Year 9-11 Woodwind Section.
Additionally some congratulations are in order to Charlotte who won the Y11 Woodwind class, and for Helen and Sophie who were commended in the Y9-11 class.
Liz prepares students for ABRSM & Trinity exams, usually performing from memory gaining excellent results from Grade 1 to Diploma.
Learn by listening and performing from memory and quickly perform with true musicianship. Gradaute book levels through performing pieces that are recorded for examination.
Theory lessons are given when students are ready to work through each theory book. Exams usually taken for Grade 3 and 5.
The complex braille code for music is taught to blind students so that they can they can work with their own instrumental teachers learning pieces and sight-reading.
