Liz Schmitt has been a Suzuki musician nearly her entire life. She grew up taking Suzuki piano lessons with Carole Bigler, attending Suzuki summer institutes, and playing multiple instruments, but went on to a career in policy, which led her to Washington DC. Now, she has started a second career as a Suzuki piano teacher. She earned her Suzuki Unit 1 certification in 2020 and Unit 2 in Spring 2021. Her goal is to pass on a lifelong love of music to her students, bringing her recent training and her lifetime of experience on the student’s side of the Suzuki triangle. Liz normally teaches from Capitol Hill, but due to the pandemic she currently offers virtual lessons. She’ll be transitioning to in-person lessons this summer on a case-by-case basis. She is accepting new Book 1, Book 2, and beginning students.
