I will be offering a limited number of private coaching sessions for individuals looking to enhance their skills and optimise their enjoyment in singing. This can range from a session to look at ways to develop an aspect of singing technique, a session to build confidence in singing, a session to learn a song to perform for friends and family. I also coach singers in nuances of Lieder and other classical song repertoire, and can provide accompaniment tracks designed with your interpretation in mind.
From September 2020, these sessions are available online. Please fill out the form below, and I will be in touch. I will also add you to my email list so that I can keep you up-to-date with my latest news.
I am incredibly lucky to work with some fantastic choirs: The Seafield Singers in Clontarf, Rathdown Cantori in Glenageary and workplace choirs with the HSE, Brown Thomas Arnotts and Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Office.
I also have worked with some fabulous amateur choirs and created some really interesting workshops designed to give the members tools to increase their range, improve their breathing capacity, transform their interpretative power, and engage themselves fully in a fun, challenging and exhilarating environment.
We are such a lucky choir to have our wonderful Liz Hilliard to guide, teach and bring an element of fun to our weekly rehearsals at Rathdown. Every now and then we are treated to one of her incredible piano pieces – you can’t hear a pin drop ! Liz has great patience with us but her goal is always to make us sound better and give us confidence and to make us believe in ourselves.

Choose Elizabeth. She has the gift of music herself and shares it seamlessly with others. For some they come for the sound, for others it is the rhythm, but for me it is the mathematical structures in music that she displays, and it just makes me want to sing along.
DARA DOOGE (Rathdown Cantori)
I have worked with Liz Hilliard for more than 20 years in various capacities, initially as accompanist for my students, and subsequently as a professional singer and soloist. We have collaborated on a number of projects and recitals, and I have always found Liz easy to work with, professional and reliable. My students have always been happy to work with her, whether preparing for exams, competitions or concert performances, and she has been able to encourage them and put them at their ease before they face into these challenges. Her dual abilities as a singer and a very able accompanist give her a unique insight into song literature, and her knowledge of the repertoire and appropriate performing styles has been invaluable. She is a phenomenal sight-reader and is comfortable tackling the most challenging repertoire. I have no hesitation in recommending Liz as a superb repetiteur and vocal coach.
