I believe every person has some musical ability. As a music teacher, it's my duty to foster and inspire this natural capacity. Music is a necessary part of life and both children and adults need the beauty and expression of music just as much as they need to know how to read and multiply. 

To offer the community of talented singers, new insights on how to better support their voices and learn about the different resonators they can use to create unimpeded, beautiful sound with agility and confidence.  This knowledge will enhance each singer’s performance by maximizing their vocal potential.  The role of the singer is defined as sharing, with love, the vocal messages offered in the music: thus creating more comfort about public performance.

The student will develop discipline, sensitivity, ability to focus, ability to analyze and solve problems, in addition to the joy of making music. 
I believe that the relationship between teacher, student, and parent is essential to the success of music lessons. We all have a very important role to play, and when we work together the result is a positive and rewarding experience.
I recognize that every student has unique needs and abilities, and I adjust my teaching approach to address those needs and maximize their potential. I believe that all children are capable of learning music and that teaching includes a never-ending journey of discovery to find out what enables them to be successful learners.

Honey Bee Music does offer scholarship to those who need financial help for their lessons. Please arrange a meeting with Elizabeth Podsiadlo to discuss this.  Donations are also accepted for those who want to help others get an equal opportunity to study.

It is recommended that you record your lessons especially the voice lessons as it is more difficult to remember the breathing and vocal exercises.  The recording will expedite your learning.

There are three opportunities for recital performance offered to the Honey Bee Vocal student each year.  Typically, one in the Autumn, One in the Spring and one in the Summer.

There is one piano recital each year, typically held in the middle of the summer.

The original presses, now in museums or private collections, were carved in clay, wood or metal and are as old as 500 years. The recipe used in making these cookies dates back to the 1600?s and originated in Bavaria, Switzerland and the Alsace area of France.
While they may seem too pretty to eat, there?re too delicious not to. The Anise flavor is the most traditional, however these cookies can be flavored using lemon, orange, Rose, and Almond flavorings.

Cooking with the Opera Singing Chef Television Show.
Between 2011 and 2013 Chef Elizabeth worked with a not-for- profit organization called PACE TV.? PACE is comprised of folks over 50 who learn through constant training how to film, edit, direct, and produce tv shows.??? Their programs’ air through the public access stations of Time Warner channel 19 and Cox Cable TV Channel 23 here in San Diego.
Chef Elizabeth filmed 14 cooking shows called:? Cooking with the Opera Singing Chef.? During these shows, Chef E would demonstrate a recipe or sometimes two. Sing two songs typically accompanied by pianist, John Danke, and sometimes a “simple pleasure” segment added at the end of the show.? Chef E, was the driving force in the creation of each program, choosing the themes, music and coordinating recipes. Chef E, was the only character for most of the show as she was always introduced in the beginning by a PACE TV member.? The programs were never scripted and 90% were filmed without stop downs.? ??These shows are still in rerun on Time Warner and Cox, however filming stopped in 2013.?
The folks at PACE TV gave Chef Elizabeth a wonderful education during the filming of these shows as she was surrounded by very experienced folks who offered their insights on many levels, from makeup to presentation, and d?cor.? A terrific bunch of people very happy to share.?
