“Liz is a master facilitator. The training she provided my team was measured, insightful, and really enjoyable. The feedback was really positive … above all else, they felt that they had learned some really valuable things over the session, both in terms of general pedagogical practices, but also about themselves and their own journey. That was what my team and I valued the most; we knew we were learning from an expert and dealing with complex issues, but we always felt connected to Liz, and she made things seem so accessible and personal to each person’s individual experience.”

“I Teach Trad has proved to be an invaluable experience for our Musician Educators. Encouraging self-reflection with a focus on existing strengths and areas of improvement, this is truly an Educator-centered course for the modern age.

Liz was a pleasure to work with from start to finish and we would definitely recommend I Teach Trad to any organization seeking to inspire and upskill its Musician Educators.”
