Liz makes Shakespeare’s verse totally accessible.  After just one session with her, I got the grasp of the rhythm and content of the work.  It was natural and made so much sense.  I went into my classical auditions feeling confident that I knew what I was doing.  And the response from these auditions showed that Liz was indeed the right coach to go to.
