About Elizabeth Burns

Liz Burns
Elizabeth Burns
Music Teacher, Master
Location: Charlotte, NC
Speaks: English
Instructs: Cello
Education: Master of Music in Cello Performance from Winthrop University
Performance Experience: I have been a professional cellist for most of my life; I am currently Assistant Principal Cello with Salisbury Symphony Orchestra and a regular substitute cellist with the Charlotte Symphony Orchestra.
Teaching Experience: I have over 30 years private teaching experience, and 25 years teaching Strings and Orchestra in a school setting. For the past 20 years I have served as the Cello Coach for the Youth Orchestras of Charlotte Preparatory Orchestra, and am currently Music Director/Conductor Salisbury Symphony Youth Orchestra
Teaching Philosphy: While I have strong opinions on correct bow hold, left hand shape, and musical expression, I feel it is vital that everyone discover their own path to creating music. We are all different physically and emotionally; I meet every student where they are and help guide them on their journey to musical mastery.
