Liz Tonne teaches Piano, Voice and Early Childhood Music. She performs as a jazz and experimental vocalist and almost all her teaching is rooted in the voice and developing the musical ear through song, even when learning keyboard skills. Her curriculum is greatly influenced by her certification in both First Steps in Music and Conversational SolFeg; music education programs developed by John Feirebend of the Hartt School at the University of Hartford. She is additionally inspired by ‘Pattern Based’ instruction and was an Accredited Simply Music teacher. Many years back, Liz injured both her arms in an overly excited Bach binge and subsequently rebooted her keyboard technique by studying the Taubman/Golandsky Approach with local Greenfield specialist, Julia Bady.
