AT THE PRESENT TIME, ALL PIANO LESSONS ARE VIRTUAL. ALSO, BEGINNER PIANO LESSONS ARE NOT POSSIBLE SINCE IN-PERSON CONTACT IS CRUCIAL FOR STARTING PIANO.
VOICE LESSONS ARE NOT CURRENTLY AVAILABLE DUE TO THE AUDIO DEFICIENCIES OF ZOOM AND OTHER MEETING APPS. I AM WORKING ON A SOLUTION FOR THIS PROBLEM.
I teach both piano and voice in a friendly and educational atmosphere. My students learn music history and theory, piano literature, and vocal literature. I organize and present two recitals each year. I have been teaching and performing for 42 years, and have experience preparing students for all types of auditions and competitions.
Everything! Music is my life, and every one of my students is the best!
Beverly is a wonderful piano & vocal teacher! She has 40+ yrs of professional & teaching experience. All of her piano & voice students are superb. My daughter was a piano student for about 8 yrs & she enjoyed her lessons. Beverly’s rates are very reasonable.
Ms. Bev is patient and kind. Her knowledge and love for music inspires her students to appreciate her lessons. My boys have enjoyed having Ms. Bev as their piano teacher.
Ms Bev is really patient with kids. My daughter loves taking her lessons. We've been with her for 5 years, she adjusts the learning paces as my daughter grows.
My daughter has been learning from her for many years. She is very good with kids, gives good advice, and is patient with many things. She also makes learning fun!
Students with previous formal training are evaluated to determine their level and given the appropriate books and/or repertoire. For the first weeks, I look for areas where the student may need review, extra attention, or additional materials.
New students are introduced to the piano with an exploration of the workings of the physical instrument. A beginning lesson book is provided which begins the process of learning to read music, hand position, rhythm and identification of the keys on the piano.
A new voice student starts with simple warm-up exercises, explanations of how the lungs, vocal cords, and diaphragm work, and the choosing of songs appropriate for beginning singers.
