About Bethany

I started studying classical piano at the age of 6 and continued through high school before going on to study with Robert Shannon at Oberlin Conservatory, where I majored in music history and theory (as well as English and creative writing - I've always had a lot of interests!). I also sang in choirs from a early age, including my high school's Madrigal Singers, the MMEA Northeast District Chorus, and the Oberlin College Choir, a select group which performs regularly with the Cleveland Orchestra. After graduation, I tried out a variety of musical activities, including singing with a semi-professional a Capella group, None of the Above, and appearing in local community theatre productions. But I finally realized that I'm most comfortable behind a piano, whether playing and conducting for ...

Voice lessons with Bethany were very good for me. She tailored our warm up exercises for my particular needs. She has good advice for breathing and vowel sounds for each piece and general advice for technique to make a piece sound better and be easier to sing. She also plays piano well for accompaniment. I hope to take lessons again with her soon.

Jenae is a great teacher!

My son just started violin lessons with Jenae and after barely a month is making great progress and staying motivated, even though he's starting this endeavor at almost 11 years old. Jenae's approach is very encouraging and methodical. We have been very pleased with our choice.

Jeanne W. Billerica, MA

All students are required to learn the basics in piano, such as,
the lines, spaces in both clefs, time signatures, note values.
Once the students have mastered the above, they can go on to learn
major and minor scales along with music pieces.
Students play songs that are in the John Thompson book and also
plays some supplementary songs.

Jeanne is a fantastic teacher

Jeanne is a great person and very easy to communicate with and I personally think that makes for a nice teacher/student relationship. I can ask her questions and she explains things very well. I feel in the 4 short weeks I have been working with her that she has taught me quite a bit. Each week I leave there with something new to challenge myself with. I would highly recommend Jeanne as she is a wonderful piano teacher. Thank you Jeanne. I look forward to this journey of learning.

I have enjoyed my lessons with Ashley because:

1. Pace of instruction is perfect for my level (beginner) and available practice time (limited).
2. Ashley isn't simply teaching me how to play a song; rather she is improving my technique in this critical period where bad habits can still be changed.
3. Always on time (granted instruction is at her location but none the less this is appreciated).
Judy G. Gardner, MA

I am familiar with a wide variety of piano methods. Over the past 34 years I have often been able to combine ideas from many to support a student who is studying in a different book. I am familiar with middle c, landmark reading, multiple key and other methods. What is best for each student differs as widely as the learning style of each.

Ms. Judy is my son's first private piano teacher and one of his favorite ones. Patrick, my son, started learning piano late at about 11 years old and he could start playing pieces fairly quickly within months. She is very patient, mindful, and thoughtful. When Ms. Judy needed to move over to east coast, she provided a list of local piano teachers and even recommended one who would fit best with Patrick. With the strong background knowledge from her, Patrick continues learning piano with the recommended teacher and enjoys playing harder classical pieces. I strongly recommend Ms. Judy as a piano teacher!!!
