Friendly Professional Service

Elizabeth is dedicated to, and enjoys helping her clients to select exactly the right music for their needs, tailoring repertoire to suit individual preferences.

Experience

Elizabeth’s background in playing traditional music as well as classical and popular, and her experience as an HPC registered music therapist have helped to make Elizabeth a versatile and sensitive musician, who is equally happy playing from music or by ear, improvising when appropriate, fitting the music to the timing and mood of the occasion.
