Elizabeth Gerrity

Elizabeth Gerrity
Licensed Kindermusik Educator

Elizabeth Gerrity has had a life-long passion for music and learning. At age seven, she begged her parents for piano lessons and had the good fortune of finding a loving, nurturing, gifted teacher, from whom she learned for ten years. Elizabeth holds a Bachelor’s of Classics -Western thought and Civilization from Brown University, and a Bachelor’s in Music and Masters of Arts in Music from Florida Atlantic University.

In past twenty years, Elizabeth has taught music, humanities, philosophy and Latin, to age levels ranging from Kindergarten through University. Her primary teaching interest, however, became private piano lesson, where she maintained a studio of over thirty students. A new marriage and job relocation has recently brought her to the Orlando area and the discovery of Kindermusik. A newly licensed Kindermusik Educator, Elizabeth is absolutely thrilled at the prospect of joining Grow and Sing Studios and becoming a master Kindermusik educator, giving back the love of music and learning she received from her nurturing role models in her childhood. The Kindermusik philosophy of developing the whole child is the perfect match for her and she feels blessed to be given the opportunity to contribute.
