Teaching since:
December 2010

I love teaching! I am a music minor graduate from BYU. I grew up playing the cello, violin, and piano. I took lessons with those instruments as well as voice lessons during my college years. I also participated in the BYU Women's Chorus. I taught piano as a student piano teacher in high school, but had other jobs during college. If I calculate all the experience I have in various musical instruments, that experience would equal 45 years. During lessons, I allow my students to be "Teacher" for a day to understand their retention. They have so much fun with that! I also give out candy during the lesson and I have a point system to at which they will be rewarded with a prize. I am a proud member of the American Fork Symphony.

Rebekah has been great for my seven year old beginner piano student. She is encouraging and gives fun prizes after meeting goals. Rebekah has been very flexible and accommodating with our busy summer schedule. The lesson location is always tidy and well kept. I would recommend her to anyone.

Rebekah is a wonderful teacher for my daughter. She is kind and patient, and is willing to work with our crazy schedule. My daughter is learning a lot by having a private instructor. I am excited to see how far she comes along this year. I would highly recommend Rebekah to anyone.

Rebekah is so patient with my little one. She goes at my little one's pace with lots of encouragement and just enough challenge to keep her interested. She takes the time to find and create appropriate materials for my little one. We love Rebekah and our daughter looks forward to her violin lessons each week.
