eighteenth century French instrumental methods and was a traverso student of Colin St. Martin.
that, she studied music and philosophy at West Virginia Wesleyan College, where she published in many
philosophy journals and was the winner of the 2001 WVMTNA woodwind competition. Her previous flute teachers
include Karen Winter, Linda Wolfersheim, Mary Ann Nelson and David Wright. Elizabeth discovered the
baroque flute in her final year at Wesleyan, and has since devoted most of her musical endeavors to this
instrument and its history. Currently she is in the process of starting a music publishing house devoted
to music of the eighteenth century which has been relatively inaccessible since its initial publication.
