Elisabeth K. Hope
Violin, Viola Teacher
Elisabeth Hope grew up in a musical family and began her violin study as a “Suzuki kid” at the age of three under the excellent instruction of Susan Kempter in Albuquerque, NM. Her early experiences with the Albuquerque Youth Symphony and a touring Suzuki violin group inspired her to pursue music as a career. She attended George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia, studying violin with Peter Haase. She graduated with a double Bachelor of Arts degree in music and communication (public relations concentration) from GMU in 2008. She then moved to Texas to pursue her Master of Music degree at the University of Houston’s Moores School of Music, studying the violin with Andrzej Grabiec and graduating in 2010. Mrs. Hope has performed across several of the United States as well as in Mexico and Spain. She has been featured as a soloist with orchestras in New Mexico and Virginia, most notably in Washington, D.C., at the Kennedy Center’s Millennium Stage. Mrs. Hope has received her Suzuki teacher training from Susan Kempter, Allen Lieb, and Gail Johansen. She currently lives in Dickinson, Texas, where she has the privilege of sharing her love of music with a studio of eager Suzuki violin and viola students during the week and performing in Houston and the surrounding areas on weekends. Her ultimate goal is to glorify God in all areas of her life, including with her music.
