Mrs. Piz


My name is Emily Pizzino and I am thrilled to be the Orchestra director at Lucy Addison Middle School. For the last three years I have taught 4th and 5th grade Strings at several different elementary schools (Garden City, Highland Park, Wasena, and Fishburn Park). Before that I was the music teacher at Westside Elementary (My name was Miss Williams then. I got married three years ago!) I began playing the viola when I was 5 years old and loved being in orchestras throughout middle school, high school, college, and beyond. I learned how to play the violin, cello, and bass in college. I have a Bachelors of Music Education from Wheaton College (in Illinois – near Chicago) and a Masters of Music Education from Capital University (in Ohio).

 My husband and I live near Addison in the Round Hill neighborhood with our dog Duchess. In my free time I love to walk my dog, read mysteries, bake, and work in my garden.
