Professional Biography:
Liz Craig is a Toronto-based pianist with a passion for making every event special through live music. She has spent the past few years building her own business which offers piano performances for weddings and events in the GTA and surrounding communities. While classically trained, Liz performs a wide variety of styles of music including jazz, popular and traditional; some of which she arranges herself. Liz has found great success and personal satisfaction using her music to help others celebrate important milestones.

Besides performing regularly, she has been teaching piano and music theory lessons for the past eight years. Liz provides a student-centered, goal-based curriculum which focuses on developing musical literacy in students of all ages and backgrounds. During the summer months, she instructs a day camp which she designed called Introduction to the Keyboard that encourages children to learn through discovery with their peers. Liz is an active member of the Ontario Registered Music Teachers Association where she serves on the executive committee of the Central Toronto Branch.

To complement her teaching and performing activities, she has also been involved with many collaborative projects. She has consulted and performed on recordings by local singer/songwriters, sang and accompanied in choirs, and worked with many soloists in preparation for music festivals, auditions and RCM exams. She also spent a term as Assistant Music Director at Grace Anglican Church in Scarborough where she was given the opportunity to organize a concert series called Grace Presents. This series aimed to bring world class live music to the suburban community as well as provide an opportunity for solo musicians and ensembles to showcase their work in an intimate setting.

Liz had the privilege of studying with Juilliard trained pianist Dr. David Moroz at the University of Manitoba where she graduated with a Bachelor of Music degree in piano performance. She also holds ARCT diplomas in both piano performance and piano pedagogy. Along with her formal educational pursuits, she is keen on continued professional development.
