Elizabeth Mitchell

 

Elizabeth Mitchell holds Bachelor of Music and Master of Music degrees in performance from the University of Melbourne, plus the Concert Recital Diploma (Premier Prix) from the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, London. Returning to Australia in 1983 after four years of overseas study, Elizabeth combined regular performances as a soloist and chamber musician, with a teaching practice embracing all ages and levels of development.

Elizabeth has worked in the tertiary environment for over thirty years and is now a Senior Lecturer in Piano at the Melbourne Conservatorium of Music, University of Melbourne. She has extensive experience coordinating tertiary academic programs, and coordinated the Bachelor of Music Performance (Hons) for over ten years. A profound interest in studio teaching and the training of instrumental teachers has resulted in Elizabeth's involvement in the Master of Music (Performance Teaching) degree. She has developed new subjects for keyboard players in this course and has for many years worked towards improving the standard of private teaching in the community. To this end she has given workshops and masterclasses to teachers and students throughout Australia and internationally. Elizabeth has had a long association with the Australian Music Examinations Board and is currently a Board Member (Vic), Chair of the Examinations Advisory Committee (Vic), Chair of Teaching Diplomas (Vic) and a Federal Examiner in both practical and written areas. The Victorian Music Teachers' Association is another organisation with which Elizabeth is greatly involved. She is a current Council member, Life Member and former President, and is researching the history of the Association.
