Elizabeth Walsh(aka Lizzie) began to learn the violin at the age of 7. She completed AMEB exams and HSC music throughout primary and secondary college, and then continued her studies at Monash University in Clayton completing a Bachelor of Music. Elizabeth started teaching the violin when she was 17. Due to her interest in assisting youth to achieve, she not long after completed a Certificate IV in Youth Work. Elizabeth moved to Narrandera in 2004 and has since built up a school of up to 30 violin students (both school aged and mature age)in the areas of Narrandera and Leeton. The ensemble groups that Elizabeth has managed can often be seen performing at the Leeton Eisteddfod and in the past her string ensembles and senior quartets have showcased their talents to the community. At times ensembles have participated in paid gigs and volunteered their time for important community events.
Elizabeth has recently completed a Bachelor of Teaching Degree (Primary and Secondary) through Deakin University in Melbourne and is enjoying the opportunity to teach in the primary classroom. On occasion, Elizabeth performs with local music groups; "The Tin Shed Rattlers" (folk music), "Two Girls Ten Strings" (a violin and classical guitar duo), and the local Narrandera string quartet "Highly Strung". In her 'spare' time she enjoys spending time with her husband and two young daughters and participates in some freelance performances for recording.
CONCERTS: Concerts are usually held twice annually. The mid-year concert is held in Leeton, and the Christmas concert is held in Narrandera. It is an expectation of all of my students that they participate in concert performances. It is my belief that in general students learn more effectively when they have performance goals to aim for. This is also how they discover the true reward of playing music. It is a great opportunity for parents of students to see the progress and talent of their sons/daughters. The Christmas Concerts of the past have been a backyard matinee, with so many people in the audience I have needed to ask them to bring there own chairs in future! The feedback from parents and friends in the audience is always great and I look forward to the next one!
AMEB Exams: Exams are optional. They are usually held during the period mid July – late August. Students receive a grading from a professional examiner that comes to Leeton or Wagga from Sydney, and will also receive a certificate for their success!
EISTEDDFOD: Why not showcase your talent at the Leeton Eisteddfod! Certificates and prizes awardes. Usually held during the first half of August.
