Welcome to Ms. Walizer's Strings Page! 

I graduated from Shepherd University in 2016 where I studied Music Education - Instrumental Music, with emphasis in clarinet. Since graduating from Shepherd, I have been an instrumental music teacher and strings teacher in Harford and Fairfax Counties. In my spare time, I teach private lessons to clarinet/saxophone students and work with Broad Run High School's Marching Spartans as their woodwind specialist.

This will be my fourth year of teaching and second year with Prince William County Schools. I am excited about year #1 as an Ellis Explorer!
