About Bethany R.

I have a Bachelor's degree in Music Education as well as eleven years of private teaching experience. My students are all different, so each lesson is different! I tailor each lesson to meet the needs of the students and to reach their long and short-term goals. My experience working with children and adults of all ages has only confirmed my love for teaching, music, and people. I love what I do, and do my best to nurture a love for music in my students.

Hi Ms Bethany, this is Sheenu(Gia & Dia's mom). I was just confused after the class coz I had signed them both for singing lessons not theory lessons. But as far as I know you gave a great class on the basics of theory, which was wonderful. Thank you so much for your excellent class. Please let me know if I need to do anything more to change it to singing lessons.
Thank you!!

Kind regards,
Sheenu.

Bethany is extremely nice and fun. She seems extremely knowledgeable, having a ton of experience teaching. My first lesson was a good amount of information, but not overwhelming. It is a true joy to have a teacher that is incredibly passionate about music and teaching others!!! I highly recommend Bethany for anyone looking to start playing piano.

I needed a voice coach to help me with the mechanics of singing. Bethany gave me advice on proper breathing, warm ups and vocal exercises, dietary do's and don'ts, etc. Her knowledge and experience helped me tremendously. I highly recommend Bethany.

I simply enjoyed my first class with Bethany. I was quite hesitant to start learning the piano at the age of 42 but Bethany made the class so enjoyable. I cant wait for my next class.

I am 65 years old and have had a phobia about singing since I was about ten. After thirty minutes with Bethany, I have hope that I can develop the confidence and skill to join in when others sing at church or a birthday party. She put me at ease and made me believe in possibility. You're never too old to be bold!

My daughter takes lessons with Bethany and loves them. Bethany makes the lessons fun while teaching technical aspects of singing. My daughter has Asperger's and sometimes has a hard time with new people. She warmed up instantly to Bethany, which tells me a lot about her character in general. Not only is she a great teacher, she's a great person. I highly recommend!
