Meet Beverly M. of El Reno, Oklahoma, who is this week’s Rock Star Teacher of the Week! Although Beverly has only been a TakeLessons instructor since February, she has quickly become an active member of our teacher community and brings over 27 years of experience to her role as a piano and music theory teacher. She has worked with students of all ages, and her teaching style covers a variety of musical genres – everything from classical and gospel to country and blues. Having lived in South America as a child, Beverly is bilingual and teaches lessons in both English and Spanish.
In addition to being a classically-trained pianist, Beverly is also a talented songwriter, having composed more than 200 songs – many of which have been recorded by various artists or arranged for church choirs. As an instructor, Beverly’s greatest desire is to instill her love for making music in each of her students. She considers music to be the “language of the heart,” and enjoys sharing her musical knowledge and love for playing with anyone who is willing to learn.
