Teaching since:
December 2011

In May 2011, I graduated from Texas Woman's University with my Bachelor's Degree in Music and a minor in Business Management. Music has been my passion since before I started taking piano lessons in third grade and there was an innate desire to master the keys. At age fifteen, I taught myself how to play guitar and started writing songs. In 2013, I became a published songwriter when my songs were produced on my church's Christmas Album ("Who Is This King?").

I have been teaching private piano lessons part-time from my home in Colleyville for five years. My students range from young beginners to intermediate and advanced students, to beginner and moderate adults. Teaching is my greatest passion, whether it's of the classical genre, theory mastery, or equipping a student to use their gifts in worship. As of January 2017, I launched into teaching full-time and I feel so blessed to be able to invest all my time and energy into the precious gifts of my students.

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions and I will be happy to discuss. I believe with you that you'll find just the right instructor to impart to your family!

Beth was great with my 7 year old. He came home already practicing 2 songs after his first lesson and is excited to go back and learn more.

I was impressed with how quickly Beth built a connection with my children and how she presented musical concepts in a manner that made sense to them.

Both kids give her two thumbs up.

My six and a half year old son just had his first lesson with Beth. I got to sit and listen. She was so kind and patient with him and very supportive. He loved her and can't wait to go to his lesson next week.

Beth is a great teacher during the time that I was working with her she really opened my mind up to new things when learning the piano when I get a chance I'm going to come see her again!

Beth is assisting me with a lifelong dream to receive vocal training! She's a skilled teacher and has helped me to rebuild my singing voice after a vocal injury. Beth's passion for music and her love for people clearly comes across in her instruction style.

Ms. Beth is a wonderful, peaceful instructor who teaches my ten-year-old daughter classical piano. She has given her lessons for 16 months now, and I wouldn't choose anyone better as a teacher and mentor for young (or old) instrumentalists or vocalists. She is patient, kind, and we'll-versed in all things music. Her individualized instruction is affordable and productive. My daughter feels confidence in her skill thanks to Ms. Beth! We highly recommend her for all skill-levels and talent interests!

My granddaughter loves Beth and taking lessons from her. She is moving along swiftly though she's never had lessons before and is a teenager. I'm very excited about her future in music.

I have an amazing experience with Beth! She is a good teacher in that she tells you what you need to work on, but she isn't mad if you don't have it perfect. She is really good at bringing your gift out instead of treating it like a performance and if you don't do so good then you failed. She teaches you how to grow and helps you along the way. If your looking for a teacher who will not only help you grow but encourage you along the way and be there for anything then you can stop looking. Beth is the best teacher ever! Wouldn't change a thing.

Beth is a rare gem. Warm, caring, knowledgable, and makes learning exciting! I couldn't imagine anyone better fit to teach me! I am fully confident in her and her abilities and know you wouldn't be disappointed! ☺️

Beth has always been a good teacher. Patient, encouraging, helpful. She just knows how to inspire people to be better musicians and knows what they need to work on or where to focus her efforts. She is the best piano teacher I know. I have had the pleasure watching her over the years develop people's love for the instrument. It's easy to teach someone something that you have a great passion for. Don't read anymore, just contact her and thank me later.

Ms.Beth is both a true professional and a friend during lessons. She never judges how ypu play and only employs constructive criticism. Not only will she teach you how to play piano, she'll teach you discipline, responsibility with the instrument, and how to be a well rounded musician. At the end of the day, Ms. Beth is the cream of the crop in a teaching profession that is easy to become medicore. In four years,I have never doubted her way of teaching, judgement, or ever considered switching.
