She has also studied music at Metropolitan State College (Denver, CO), Sacramento City College, and with private instructors. She has also played violin for several local Sacramento bands such as The Mythics, Tiny Monster Invasion & Illusions Echo. If you’re curious, Liz’s current personal music projects are with original band, The Bitter Elegance (www.thebitterelegance.com) and cover-band The Receptions (www.facebook.com/thereceptionsband).

Method

Liz likes to ensure an excellent foundation is set with good posture, a correct bow grip, precise intonation, solid timing and the ability to sight read.
