As a published songwriter, I enjoy teaching others how to foster their creativity through writing as well. I will take you through the process from brainstorming, formulating, editing, adding music/chords to the lyrics, writing riffs, to finishing and copyrighting your original work.

About Beth B.

Hi there! My name is Beth and I'm a TakeLessons music lessons instructor. I provide customized, encouraging, and engaging instruction for each student, specific to their unique interests, experience level and goals. My teaching experience started primarily with teaching in-person lessons but I recently expanded to online lessons and have since had the privilege of teaching students all across the USA: California, Illinois, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Texas, Virginia, Washington, among other states. Teaching online has proven to be a very flexible, convenient, and effectual method of teaching and I’m eager to expand my online roster even further.

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 always an innate desire to master the keys. At age fifteen, I taught myself how to play guitar and started writing and performing original 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, TX for 8 years, and have instructed over 160+ students. I have been blessed to be in full-time teaching since January 2017, and it has been a dream come true to be able to invest all my time and energy into the precious gifts of my students. Teaching is my greatest passion, whether it's of the classical genre, theory mastery, or equipping a student to use their gifts in worship. 

Update: as of February 2020, I have moved from DFW, TX to the Branson, MO area. I have openings for both new online students and in-studio. I’m excited for this adventure and to develop the musical gifts of students in the beautiful Ozarks area!

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!

She is doing a great job teaching my daughter the techniques needed to perform on stage!! Also, how to meet the demands of singing while protecting her voice. She is upbeat, encouraging, engaging, kind, and very well educated in voice.

I have to admit I was a bit skeptical of online piano at first, but now I’m a fan! My daughter loves Beth and was taking piano in person, but now logistically online is the only option. It works really well, since it’s in the comfort of our home and I don’t have to take her anywhere. We set up a ring light I bought on Amazon and it’s works great through FaceTime! My daughter enjoys the online classes and looks forward to the annual local recital. We highly recommend Beth online or in person! She is so gifted and such a blessing!

Beth is an excellent music teacher. We were introduced to her by our friends whose kid was taking piano lessons with her.
My 2 daughters aged 8 and 5 started taking classes with her and the only thing I can say that we were lucky to have her as our kids piano teacher. She is professional as well as friendly with kids. Beth is very sweet and humble human being apart from being an amazing music teacher. My older daughter also took voice lessons from her. I am not a music expert but I was able to see how fast my kids learnt from her which only proves that her teaching style and techniques were excellent.
She was also very accommodating with the schedule if any changes were needed.
We are very sad that she is moving out from our area and it will be really tough to find someone like her. My kids love her and we all wish her the best. Anyone thinking of hiring her for music lessons, do not give a second thought, you will not be disappointed.

My two girls have been attending Beth‘s piano classes every week for the past two years. The girls love her classes, she has the ability to teach at all levels. You can tell all the students really do love her teaching approach. She is professional, flexible and punctual. She genuinely enjoys teaching. We enjoy attending the piano recitals each year. The girls practice their presentation skills and learn to overcome any shyness they might have as they play in front of an audience. We will miss her classes!
Thank you

Ms. Beth is my son First and Favorite piano teacher ever! He started his lesson when he just turned 4yrs old. While I worried if he could do it at that early ages, Ms. Beth made every lesson so enjoyable that he love to come every time, and he has learned so much from her in the last 3 years. She’s so good and so patient with kids. He’s so inspired by her that he even said he want to be Piano teacher when he grow up! So cute! We will miss you, Ms. Beth!

My daughter started with Beth at age 4. Beth is sweet and amazing with young kids which requires immense patience! My daughter loved going to piano classes. Recently started my son, age 5, on the keys. He LOVES going to his lessons and I find him practicing without being told to! We are really going to miss Beth! Branson is lucky to have her!

My son has been taking piano lessons from Ms. Beth for 3 and a half years. He started with another instructor and was referred to Beth. My son’s skills have improved tremendously as she has challenged him with more difficult pieces. She also pays attention to the type of music my son is drawn to which helps keep him interested and wanting to practice. Her cheerful and encouraging demeanor also keep my son interested in learning more.

Our daughter has been attending lessons with Ms. Beth for the last 4 years. Our daughter started with zero knowledge about playing the piano and has learned so much over the last several years. Ms. Beth is so patient and thorough with every lesson. You can truly see her love of music! We also love that she holds several recitals for families and friends to attend throughout the year. We are truly going to miss Ms. Beth and she is going to be hard to replace!

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!

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 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.
