Our voice is our most primal and ancient instrument. It is the easiest to use and one of the most difficult instruments to master. At Riverside Performing Arts, we focus on proper technique and the importance of safe and healthy vocal development – fun is mandatory, but experience is not.
We offer lessons and classes in the form of private voice, private voice/piano, and small group ensembles. Students develop a strong base in music theory while exploring concepts such as scales/solfege, rhythm, and harmony. All classes encourage expression and foster skills in performance. Two recitals are offered each year as well as many other seasonal opportunities.
Lizzy grew up in Hood River, OR. She graduated from the American Academy of Dramatic Arts and received her Masters of Education from Portland State University. She grew up singing and acting and is currently the lead singer in a Blondie tribute band called, Glass of Hearts. Lizzy has worked with children from various backgrounds and experiences and values and respects all voices. She finds so much joy in performing and teaching and says it is a dream come true to see that shiny spark in the eyes of her students as they discover their passion.
