Year’s of Experience

Elizabeth Cobbins holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Piano Performance, and a Masters of Secondary Education. In addition, she is certified by the State of Louisiana Department of Education to teach Vocal, Instrumental, and Talented Music.  She has been a music instructor  for the East Baton Rouge Parish School System for almost 30 years.

Technical Studies

Students enrolled for private studies are driven to complete playing the sixty exercises in “The Virtuoso Pianist” by Hanon, or Lutgen’s Daily Exercises. In addition, students are encouraged to study scales and key signatures.

Music Theory

Our music theory lessons are provided in one-on-one lectures. Music vocabulary and fundamentals are provided in application with selected pieces of study. Music theory concepts are also reinforced through sequenced study with Music Ace I and II software.


Routine sight-reading is necessary in learning to read music. Each student works from a method book from which most sight-reading assignments are studied. Students are expected to practice sight-reading assignments after each weekly lesson.

Performance Practices

Each student is encouraged to participate in the local recitals, festivals, and competitions.
