Liz started playing the flute at the age of six. At a very early age she started formal musical training in her native home town of San Juan Puerto Rico and quickly developed great appreciation for music and arts. She was accepted in an arts specialized school where she was constantly exposed to private lessons, large ensembles and chamber music. Upon finishing this program, she was accepted in the Conservatory of Music in Puerto Rico where she earned her Bachelor’s Degree in flute performance. In 2005 she was awarded 3rd prize of the concerto competition as well as a substitute position with the Puerto Rico Symphony Orchestra where she had the opportunity to play many of the greatest orchestral masterpieces under world-renowned conductors.
Shortly after graduating she moved to the city of Cincinnati OH, where she studied privately with the principal flute of the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, Mr. Randolph Bowman. Liz has participated in master classes with Amy Porter, Jim Walker, Lisa Ruoho, Paul Edmund Davies, Amy Likar, Keith Underwood, Carol Winsenc and Mary Karen Clardy. In 2009, she was accepted in the Master of Music, performance division, at the Boston University’s College of Fine Arts under the tutelage of flutist Linda Toote. In the summer of 2011, she participated in Trevor Wye’s master class “Preparing for Employment” where she had an opportunity to work extensively with this world-class flutist. Now a graduate she is actively engaged as a freelancer and private flute instructor in the New England area.

To teach the flute I use the Blocki Flute Method. This method consists of a set of books and the pneumo pro, a device that aids in the learning of sound production of the flute. For piano I use the Bastien Piano Books Series.
Every child has their own way of learning. Some are visual, others aural, verbal or kinesthetic. As a teacher I will adapt my lessons to each child needs. The basic structure of the lesson is review/present the new concept, apply it and at the end of the lesson discuss the new given homework for the following lesson. I will go to the student pace. I also take into account their reason of learning music and no matter what I try to make lessons interesting and fun for them.
Select all the days/times the student would be available to start lessons. Selecting "3pm - 7pm" means the student can start as early as 3pm or start as late as 7pm. It is important that you select as many days and the widest window of start times for each day as possible. That will help us make a match with one of our teachers.Ok
Are you sure that's your only availability? The more availability you easier it will be to arrange a teacher for you.
