Elizabeth Zempel is director of the Falls Baptist Music School and professor at Baptist College of Ministry in Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin. Elizabeth grew up in a musical home, and has performed with her five siblings all across the country. They have produced many recordings together, some of them featuring Elizabeth’s own students.
Elizabeth has studied with Mimi Zweig in her pre-college years, and after earning a bachelors in music she received her master’s degree in violin performance at Indiana University. She won multiple performance awards in High School and was concertmaster of the Milwaukee Youth Symphony Orchestra.
Because of her work with her brother Wayne, a survivor of a childhood brain tumor, Elizabeth developed a love for music education and character development in children. This led her to establish a music school over twenty years ago. Today, the music school hosts over two hundred private lessons, three string orchestras, a full orchestra, multiple same-instrument groups and a Music for Babes and Violin for Tots program.
Elizabeth’s students have achieved much, including winning numerous performance competitions, performing at the Midwest Clinic in Chicago, and even establishing their own music programs in the USA and abroad. Elizabeth values genuine relationships and investing in lives and she finds satisfaction and joy in spending time with her husband Stephen and two sons, John and Christian.
