Voice & Piano Lessons
Welcome to the Elizabeth Koontz Music Studio! I am a professional soprano, singer/songwriter, and private voice and piano teacher. I have been teaching adults and children of all ages and abilities for over 15 years. I aim to be a supportive and inspiring teacher who fosters a love of music and nurtures each student’s unique talents.
Lessons are weekly at the same day/time and are given on a pre-WWII Knabe full grand piano in my home studio in Mariemont. All students are invited to participate in the yearly Spring Studio Recital held at the beautiful Mariemont Chapel in Cincinnati, Ohio. My Kimball baby grand piano resides there for recitals.
Elizabeth Koontz, Soprano
Elizabeth Koontz has been singing and playing piano since her first solo in church at the age of 5.
Her voice has since been heard in opera houses and concert halls nationwide. Her interpretations of classical and modern repertoire have garnered praise from critics such as Opera News, describing her as "a Strong, Stirring and Agile Soprano,” and “Golden-Voiced.”
After graduating with her Master of Music degree in Voice from Indiana University, Ms. Koontz enjoyed many years performing as an opera singer across the United States. In 2014, she settled back in her hometown of Cincinnati, OH, where she lives with her son, Liam, and dog, Ladybug. Elizabeth regularly sings for official events across the city of Cincinnati and for local churches. She teaches private voice and piano lessons in her home studio in Mariemont and has been teaching for over 15 years. She enjoys teaching people in her community of all ages and proficiencies.
