Liz Partridge

Liz was educated at RAM junior and on a scholarship at Trinity College of Music, where she won many prizes for solo playing and chamber music. A founder member of the Court string quartet, she then went on to hold positions in the BBC concert orchestra, at ENO and as sub- principal first violin in the orchestra of the Royal Opera House. For many years now she has freelanced in London and around the world.

Teaching, coaching and mentoring have played a big part in her career, as have solo recordings, organising and leading orchestral and chamber music concerts, examining and adjudicating. She spent 6 years on the ISM council and has presented at conferences and spoken on various musical topics for ESTA.

Publications include 4 Strings, a set of freshly commissioned string quartets for learners and a soon to be published set of Grade by Grade books for string players, in her role as a commissioning editor for Boosey and Hawkes.
