Elizabeth Nelson

Oboe Instruction

Elizabeth Nelson plays “with energy and conviction, as well as a lovely sound and technical assurance” as said by Tim Day, principal flute in the San Francisco Symphony. Elizabeth is based in upstate New York and teaches at the Opus Ithaca School of Music.

Elizabeth has lived and studied around the United States, including Boston, Phoenix, San Francisco, and Provo, UT. She has held private teaching studios in all of these locations, as well as served on the music faculty at Snow College as their oboe instructor. She can be heard on the album O Holy Night, featuring the Eastern Millennial Choir & Orchestra. While in Boston, Elizabeth enjoyed playing with a variety of ensembles, including the Berklee Silent Film Orchestra, and the New England Repertory Orchestra. She devoted time to performing solo and chamber music in the Boston area, and her most recent chamber ensemble, Aenor Trio, spent time in the Boston Public School System doing outreach for less privileged students. Elizabeth Nelson holds degrees from Brigham Young University, the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, and Boston University, where she recently graduated with her Doctorate of Musical Arts. She has studied with Mark McEwen, Geralyn Giovannetti, James Moore, and Martin Schuring.
