Instrument: Flute Teacher

Store: Union Store

Flutist Elizabeth Marshall is thrilled to return to the Bay Area after many years away. She has subbed with the Oakland Symphony and Fresno Philharmonic, is second flutist of the Wisconsin Chamber Orchestra and the Madison Symphony Orchestra, and previously held positions with the Ann Arbor Symphony and the Utah Festival Opera Orchestra. Liz is a previous winner of the the National Flute Association Young Artist and Masterclass Competitions, the Irving Shain Piano and Woodwind DuoCompetition, and can be heard on recordings by Sound-Space Audio Lab, Equlibrium, Centaur Records, and Albany Records. A regular substitute teacher at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music PreCollege, Dr. Liz has taught a wide variety of music courses at Madison College, Edgewood College, UWPlatteville, Beloit College, and Ripon College. Shortly after performing the Ibert Concerto under Denis De Coteau, she received her BM from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music. She received a full fellowship to attend the University of Michigan for her MM, and was later awarded a DMA with minor emphasis in Music Theory and Conducting at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where she worked as a Music Theory Teaching Assistant. Her most influential teachers have been Tim Day, Leone Buyse, Julie McKenzie, and Keith Underwood; she studied traverso for three summers on fellowship with Claire Guimond at the Tafelmusik Baroque Summer Institute. Liz’s flute students regularly achieve the goals they set for themselves, whether that means high marks on a solo, admittance to competitive ensembles, mastering mental preparation required of an audition or competition, or proudly playing every single note of their band music. When not fluting, Liz is probably out hiking and exploring nature with her dogs.
