Becky was a phenomenal instructor! She has a genuine enthusiasm for teaching and music is obviously a large part of her life. She provides great analogies to help her students grasp concepts. And she inquired about my goals and was a great resource for pursuing them. I had to suspend my lessons because life got a little too busy, but if I find the time again, I'd definitely look to return to her for instruction.

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.
