In 2007, Liz developed a method and authored the manual “How To Write a Fast and Easy Drum Chart” which teaches drummers how to write drum music. This book will be published by Hal Leonard in 2010 and is endorsed by Louie Bellson.

In June, 2008, Liz built and published a website www.easydrumchart.com and uses this successful website to sell her method to dedicated drummers who want to learn the power of how to make money not with a pair of drum sticks but with a pencil and paper.
Her vision for the future focuses on producing and engineering Grammy award winning album projects, commercial underscores and song cuts, teaching master classes on how to write a drum chart and writing more instruction books for drummers. Her company will continue to expand globally through the internet to reach all professional musicians.

Under Ficalora Music Productions, she built and published a new website for her company www.betterthanademo.com. This website is dedicated to working with songwriters and artist who need music production for their songs ready for publishers and record labels. Better Than A Demo fulfills her passion for playing the drums, producing, engineering, working with computers, arranging and orchestrating.

Liz has built two blogs, www.easydrumchart.com/wordpress and www.betterhanademo.com/wordpress to reach out further to contact musicians and drummers worldwide.
These websites are just a beginning of her passion of work with musicians and her dedication to helping others with her skills. Her company has expanded globally through the internet hoping to reach all professional and inspiring, artist, songwriters and musicians
