My name is Elizabeth Lytch and I love being a music teacher here at Piney Grove. This is my 7th year teaching after earning a degree in Music Education from East Carolina University. Go Pirates! I teach General Music classes, as well as Choir, Dance, and Drumming. I enjoy singing in my church choir at FBC Lumberton and spending time with my family. To me, music education is more than singing, dancing, and playing instruments. Music Education builds confidence, teamwork, communication skills, perserverance, and artistic ability, among many other skills that children will need to grow to be successful their whole life long.
