About me

A little about myself...


While at the East Sussex Academy of Music, Elisabeth's quartet was coached by the Chilingirian String Quartet. She appeared as a soloist with the College Orchestra and played in the Royal Albert Hall and the Queen Elizabeth Hall as a student. During this time she learnt with Perry Hart, the distinguished Australian violinist, who was also a professor at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama.

Having won a scholarship to study with John Fisher (RPO) while at University she later went on to take her Teaching Diploma (ABRSM) at Exeter University. (2005)

Licentiate and Fellowship in performance successfully achieved with the National College of Music and Arts, London in July 2017 and November 2019 respectively.

Elisabeth has played as a soloist in Truro Cathedral and Truro Methodist Proms Lunchtime Series in October 2019. Also Exmouth United Reform Church as well as St Peters, Bournemouth.  She now runs a successful and busy teaching practice in West Sussex, having returned to the South East in March 2020.

Elisabeth plays a fine French Violin, a Miremont from 1870.

'We are delighted to have found Elisabeth and so pleased with the progress our son has made on the violin. He is making such a good sound and learning the correct techniques and skills to progress with his learning. Elisabeth is very professional and very knowledgeable and our ten year old boy comes out of his lessons very enthusiastic about learning. I would highly recommend Elisabeth as a teacher. '

'Elisabeth Holman has been teaching our child and we cannot recommend her highly enough. After experiencing music tutors for the last ten years we were amazed with her ability to connect with her student. She really does care about her charges development, which, in our experience means our child wants to please and practice without argument or persuasion!Our child has been challenged and as a result has noticeably improved, she is encouraged to try things out in a lesson, Elisabeth is able to communicate core concepts and point to areas for improvement in a concise manner, allowing the music to go on.Most people have one or two genres that are at the top of their list, even if their tastes are varied. But Elisabeth shows students her enthusiasm for all musical styles so that they are motivated to do some exploration for themselves and find out what they like. This has helped our child to open up to new music that I don’t think she would have considered before.When our child started to have lessons, Elisabeth revisited the fundamentals of instrument playing and musical technique, not one of our child’s previous tutors had taken the time to ensure that her hold or posture was correct. Even when our little girl is rehearsing a complicated piece, we can see her taking the time to ensure that her posture and positioning is correct, which has given her confidence.I cannot emphasise enough that Elisabeth is a really great teacher, we feel so very lucky and privileged to have found her. She has made such a positive contribution to our child, who had got the point of giving up. She has opened a new world of music and made a massive contribution. She takes the time to develop talent and is enthusiastic about what she does which motivates and encourages learning.'

"Liz has a passion for what she teaches which goes a long way as a student."

Bloss - January 2021

"After taking an extended break from the violin, I wanted a violin teacher who would be willing to work with me towards retaking my grade 8. I reached out to Liz based off her reviews and found her to be very friendly and professional right from our first phone call. Liz has helped me rebuild confidence and given me a clear direction by setting challenging yet manageable expectations for our weekly lessons. She is a very competent, welcoming and talented violinist who I would strongly recommend." I am incredibly grateful to her for reigniting a long lost passion; and for the first time ever, I look forward to taking my exams!"
