Liz Wright, Violin Teacher


Playing music is a natural extension of human creativity and self-expression. The teacher’s role is to create the environment and provide the tools necessary for learning, and to guide students toward developing a satisfying and meaningful work process.

Liz's teaching is different from lesson to lesson, dependent on each student's needs and goals, but all students can expect to enter a nourishing, non-judgmental environment that welcomes dialogue and open discussion. Lessons are centered on enrichment, growth, and a healthy, sustainable use of the body.

Most important is sound. Everything done in learning to play an instrument serves the purpose of creating something beautiful or meaningful. No technical or physical idea is removed from musical intention, because when we use our bodies with care and allow energy to flow efficiently, we can create directly from ourselves. The sound is free to soar.
