Liz Wisniewski

“Liz Wisniewski has inspired my daughter to practice and develop a love for playing the violin. Liz models how to play while showing patience, knowledge and expertise. She works with my young musician to choose appropriate repertoire that she enjoys. We are thrilled to continue lessons with this talented teacher!”
