Elizabeth Coard, pianist
I am a member of the National Guild of Piano Teachers, Teacher Division of the American College of Musicians.
Established in 1929 by Dr. Irl Allison, the first Auditions were held at Hardin- Simmons University, Abilene, Texas. The National Headquarters is maintained in Austin, Texas.
The American College of Musicians evaluates students' performances based upon their presentation of baroque, classical, romantic, and modern works. Each student performs their repertoire for a professional adjudicator chosen by the National organization.
Throughout the US and abroad, over 100,000 piano students participate in the annual National Piano-Playing Auditions which are held in over 880 music centers. Each entrant is given a certificate, a gold, silver, or bronze embossed pin, a report card, and a year's membership in the National Fraternity of Student Musicians. My students consistently win top honors. Read More.
