Elizabeth Gorringe

French Horn Teacher

French Horn Teacher

Elizabeth is a freelance horn player, songwriter and singer. She completed a Bachelor of music in French Horn performance at the Australian National University, studying under Dominic Harvey. She has been involved in Australian Youth Orchestra and has worked with the Sydney Symphony and the Canberra Symphony orchestras. Recently she has been writing performing and releasing her own music as a singer, under the name Issabird.

As a teacher, Elizabeth loves to focus on helping students achieve solid foundations in brass playing, by spending time on the basics of good breathing, posture and embouchure control. When they fix problems that have previously held them back, students are really able to enjoy their instrument by playing it well.
