My daughter was shy in the beginning, but Becky made her feel special and happy. She always encouraged her and praised her for all her progress no matter how small. She is a wonderful instructor.

Becky has been my daughter's music teacher for several years. She is an excellent teacher and really brings her love and joy of music to each lesson. Not only does she develop music technique, she has become a wonderful role model for my daughter. We have been extremely pleased with Becky's professionalism and her ability to develop a great teaching relationship with my daughter.
