Elizabeth Stratford 


Elizabeth did not begin playing the piano until the age of 17 and studied with Tom Edmondson until she went on to study voice at university.

Her quick progression meant that, despite no formal piano studies during her university career, she gave a piano recital of Wagner’s The Flying Dutchman at the Alhambra Studio Theatre in Bradford in conjunction with a reading of The Rime of the Ancient Mariner by Gerard Benson, poet. Her playing won critical acclaim and she has since performed in public at a number of venues. Most frequently her piano work is repetiteuring and teaching; students regularly achieve merits and distinctions in their examinations following lessons and preparation and Elizabeth is often requested as an accompanist for events outside of the Cathedral.

"Elizabeth Stratford was the most dedicated, inspiring and delightful music teacher my children have ever had – though she taught them when they attended school, she even came to my home to privately tutor them as I trusted her so much. My children thrived
under her tutelage – culminating in music scholarships offered to them and they still benefit from her legacy."
