Liz studied music at the Universities of Bristol (BA Hons, 1st class) and Southampton (PhD, 1995). She then taught at Colchester Institute’s School of Music and Performance Arts for four years, before moving to <a href="http://www.conservatoire.bcu.ac.uk">Birmingham Conservatoire</a>, where she was Head of Postgraduate Studies until 2009, when she left academia to work as a freelance arranger, choral clinician and trainer of conductors.
She has a large catalogue of arrangements, and is regularly commissioned by ensembles from across Europe. She has had several arrangements published by the Barbershop Harmony Society. Her work is informed by a deep understanding of performers' needs, both in the singability of the lines and scope it offers to invest expressive purpose in a performance.
