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!
