Elizabeth Hogan knows no greater joy than helping her students reach their fullest potential as humans and as musicians. She's done so in a variety of settings within education and non-profit sectors with students from age 5 to 85.
She holds a Ph.D. in Learning, Teaching and Curriculum from the University of Missouri and a Masters of Music in Choral Conducting from Michigan State University. As Assistant Professor of Music Education at Southeast Missouri State University, she is charged with guiding people through the process of learning to be music educators whose teaching is rooted in philosophy and sparked by creativity.
Elizabeth is a community builder by nature; her 8 year old self kept lists of her friends before social media was a thing! Now, she puts those natural interests to use in creating spaces for folks to meet, share ideas and refine their craft, whether in the music studio, on social media, in sacred spaces or in the classroom.
She continues to learn and takes great joy in mistakes, as they are the best way to know how to improve. Recently she's taken up the ukulele, and has begun a regular yoga practice. She looks forward to completing a Yoga Teacher Training course in 2021.
Elizabeth is mom to Eleanor and Ava, two little firecrackers who keep life interesting, purposeful and joy-filled.
Elizabeth Hogan is not only a music educator, but also a friend, advisor, and voice of reason. She is my go to ‘guru’ whenever my soul needs healing!
