Elizabeth Moore grew up in midcoast Maine playing both classical violin and fiddle. She has earned a Bachelor’s of Music in viola performance from the University of North Carolina School of the Arts, and a Master’s of Music from the Boston University College of Fine Arts. Elizabeth’s primary viola instructors were Sheila Browne and Karen Ritscher.

In addition to her viola studies, Elizabeth was a Keenan Fellow at Lincoln Center Education in New York City, where she worked with Teaching Artists in public schools and put on a collaborative performance at Lincoln Center Education’s Clark Theatre. Elizabeth performs regularly as a violist and singer, primarily with Palaver Strings, a musician-led string ensemble formed in Boston, who now calls Portland, ME home.

A Suzuki certified violin and viola teacher, Elizabeth combines the Suzuki method with traditional methods to set every student up with solid technique from the very beginning, and help them develop a strong and clear tone.
