I believe in inspiring long term results in students through constructive feedback and a healthy and strong technique to serve as a solid foundation for any musical style. I enjoy sharing my love of music and watching students progress in both their musical development as well as their appreciation for music.

I have a Bachelor of Music degree in Vocal Performance from Indiana University and a Master of Music in Vocal Performance from Brigham Young University. I have experience teaching voice as well as advanced sight singing to students with a wide variety of backgrounds and experiences privately and in group settings. In addition, I have played the piano for over ten years.

I am an extremely enthusiastic and dedicated teacher, and I go out of my way to ensure that my students receive the tools they need to take their abilities to the next level and achieve their goals. For me, the focus is entirely on the student and what I need to do to help their development.

Beverly is amazing! My teenaged daughter worked with her to prepare for a musical audition, and in just five lessons I saw such growth in both her singing ability and confidence. Beverly is kind, patient, friendly, and incredibly talented. She is able to push students to do their best, but in a very supportive, nurturing manner. She is very prompt in responding to emails and flexible in scheduling. My daughter has had private lessons with several different teachers (dance, acting, piano, etc) and Beverly is by far her favorite instructor.

Beverly has helped me more than any other instructor I've ever had. I felt she really cared about me as an individual and did everything she could to help my vocal skills improve. With her help, I was able to expand my vocal range, improve breathing technique, and overcome confidence issues.
Beverly is an amazing teacher and I would recommend her to anyone.

I was sooo nervous at first because I just didn't know what to expect from private voice lessons. Beverly made me feel comfortable! I was never afraid to make a mistake because the way she corrected me was in a loving way. Corrections were not a bad thing in her class. Corrections were a great thing and it helped me to become a better singer. I have improved in my confidence and technique because of the training style of Beverly. I will always recommend her! She is GREAT!
