I aim to foster a passion and love for music in students! My lessons incorporate a holistic approach to music, focusing on not only piano technique and artistry, but also music theory, ear training, sight reading, and other musical topics according to student interest. I want to come alongside my students, formulating lessons around their goals while maintaining a rounded music education. Let's discover the joy of music together!

About Becky S.

I am a professional pianist, primarily working as a collaborative pianist and a teacher. In July of 2020, I will have earned a Bachelor's of Music in Piano Performance as well as a Bachelor's of Science in Psychology from Liberty University. I will begin pursuing a Master's of Arts in Music Education with a concentration in Performance in the fall of 2020. I am also a member of Music Teachers National Association (MTNA).

I have studied the piano for 17 years, but have been professionally trained as a classical pianist for the past 12 years. Before college, I competed in music festivals, performed in Guild auditions, and completed the Music Development Program through level 10. I also performed in studio and community recitals, and performed a 60-minute solo recital. In college, I successfully completed two solo recitals (40 minutes and 65 minutes) and performed in Liberty's Piano Showcase twice, an auditioned concert.

While studying music in college, I received training in topics such as keyboard pedagogy, keyboard literature, collaborative piano, improvisation, music theory, and musicianship. I worked as a Music Theory/Musicianship Grader and Tutor for several years, and I assisted in some group piano classes. For the past three years, I have spent a lot of time working as a collaborative pianist for vocalists and instrumentalists, performing in juries, recitals, and other student evaluations.

In addition to classical piano, I have received two years of collegiate-level vocal instruction. Singing has been a part of my life since a very young age--I believe singing is a wonderful form of musical expression and recommend it to enhance instrumentalists' understanding of phrasing. I also play guitar and have ample experience in contemporary keyboard from church settings.

I hope to use all of this experience to provide a rounded music education to my students. I work with students of many ages, skill levels, and goals. Mentorship is central to teaching music, so my goal is to develop meaningful connections with my students. I look forward to meeting you and sharing my passion for music with you!
