Elizabeth Neely is a piano teacher and pianist in Fort Worth, Texas. At age five, in western New York State, she was the first Suzuki student of Carole Bigler, an early Suzuki piano pioneer teacher in the U.S. Subsequently she moved to São Paulo, Brasil for a time. There, an encounter with the pianist Alicia de Larrocha helped her to find a teacher. Later she studied with with Mary Ann Covert at Ithaca College and Rebecca Penneys at the Eastman School of Music. She has been a piano soloist with professional orchestras in Ithaca and Binghamton, New York and has given several solo recitals. In Fort Worth she collaborates as a chamber musician in various ensembles, accompanies a Suzuki cello and violin studio, and plays in area churches.

Although Beth’s advanced degrees are in English (she has taught at high schools and universities in Brasil, Austria, and the U.S., including Texas Wesleyan University and University of Texas at Arlington), she has returned to music as her first love. She is particularly interested in teaching piano within a balanced context that deepens her students’ appreciation of all the arts. She also encourages music study as a vessel for students to express their life experiences. On the way, she ensures that both students and parents are having fun!

She is accepting new students for lessons between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.
