Lisa has been teaching for over 20 years with nearly 4 years at Milford Music. She started piano at 8 years old and added flute at 10. Lisa then started on cello later on studying privately on all instruments.
She is currently the Principal Flute for Livingston Symphony Orchestra, having
held that position for 15 years. She played in the cello section of the Livingston
Symphony for 5 years before becoming Principal Flute. At this time, she plays
cello with her string quartet, performing for weddings, funerals, church services,
and private parties.
Lisa enjoys teaching all ages from elementary school to adults. She strives to bring
creativity to her lessons and to instill a love of music that will last a lifetime.
“In the 6 years I've been taking cello lessons with Mrs. Shipman, she's been the perfect teacher. She's been patient and helpful. She's always explained techniques clearly. She's always been positive and encouraging, especially when I've had difficulties grasping a concept or mastering a piece. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for an outstanding cello instructor.”
Anastasia Jones – cello student
"I don't think I'd be as good as I am now without flute lessons from Lisa. She's been a great help and has improved my playing so much these past few years. She's super nice and friendly, a great choice for beginners, advanced musicians, and anywhere in between. =]"
