Piano Teaching Method
Elisabeth Bell uses both her classical and folkloric musical background in her teaching method. A good hand position and sensitive touch is established with the "Finger Gymnastique" of Alfred Cortot. Scales and arpeggios are taught with a strong emphasis on harmony, the students learn how to compose and memorize as well as sight read.

French folk songs are used in transposition exercises to stimulate mental flexibility. Younger students' parents are encouraged to attend at the end of the lessons, so they can help at home and learn to play simple duets.
