August 2006

I am a graduate of Piedmont College, graduating Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelors in Church Music and a Masters of Arts in Music Education. I majored in voice and minored in piano, studying voice with Barbara Steinhaus. I have taught both in the classroom and privately in the metro Atlanta area for 10 years.

While pursuing my degrees, I accompanied various ensembles and students at Piedmont and was a member of the elite 9-member a cappella group, Cantabile. I am currently a professional singer and pianist in the Atlanta area, singing and playing various genres including classical, worship, pop, and jazz.

I teach various genres of music—everything from classical to popular music. I believe that teaching multiple genres enables students to become well-rounded musicians and learn to express themselves in a variety of ways. I believe that aural skills and the ability to read music help singers and instrumentalists alike to be the best musicians they can be.

Mrs. Bethany was a very helpful and fun teacher to have. She was not overly critical but still taught me everything I needed to know. She's a great person with a very sweet and passionate personality! I will definitely be going back to her for more lessons.

Bethany is an amazing voice teacher! She's been teaching my daughter for three years. Bethany is knowledgeable, encouraging and my daughter adores her. I would recommend her (and have) to anyone.
