Elizabeth Strebulaev | 2nd Prize | Piano | 9th Edition | ENKOR Int'l Music Competition

Elizabeth started playing the piano at the age of 4 at the Community School of Music and Arts (CSMA) in the San Francisco Bay Area of California. She is now also studying with Erna Gulabyan.  She passed with distinction the 4th grade exam of the Associated Board of the Royal School of Music (ABSRM). Her ABSRM exam score for the 3rd grade that she also passed with distinction was the highest of any CSMA student that academic year.

Elizabeth received the 1st prize at the 2021 CAPMT Contemporary Music competition. She won the 1st prize at the Virtuoso international Music Competition and the 1st prize at the Great Composers Competition for her interpretation of a piece by Kabalevsky. She won and received prizes at many other competitions. She performed at the Royal Albert Hall in London, Carnegie Hall in New York City, and the Robert Schumann museum in Germany.

Elizabeth loves learning and playing pieces by Liszt, Haydn, Chopin, Beethoven, Schumann, Tchaikovsky, Grieg, and Shostakovich. Her musicianship is greatly enhanced by having a loving and caring older brother, Daniel, who, at 14 years of age, is also an accomplished pianist.
