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.

My daughter has been taking lessons from Bethany for almost two months and she really enjoys her lessons and has a good rapport with Bethany. Would definitely recommend her as a singing instructor.

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!
