    Beth is a very talented and knowledgeable teacher. I am a new student to learning piano and she has been very patient and encouraging. She is very creative with her teaching and personalizes her education to fit the learner. I am thankful for her kindness that has boosted my confidence and helped me to look forward to my next lesson!

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

Everyone learns in their own unique way. I find it important to assess their learning style and comfort level immediately, then teach within that framework. A piano lesson must be made like a game for children else they shy away. I want them to feel accomplished after every lesson. I have taught for many years,am energetic and fun spirited, and my goal is to make lessons fun while they learn at their own pace!! 


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have played since I was 2 years old, I play professionally. I studied under Martin Berkofsky as a child and teen. I have given lessons since 1992. I was born with the gift of being able to play by ear, have developed this over time. If you have this gift I can teach you how to develop it. However you won’t get very far without the knowledge that comes from knowing how to read music. 


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

I do. $35/lesson


How did you get started teaching?

I taught classroom music in a preschool where my now grown children attended (Buntyn Preschool) and many parents asked me to give them and their children private lessons. It took off from there. I have been teaching at Studio 708 with Isabelle Welch. She has moved and sold the studio. I am now teaching at Circle Music on Brookhaven Circle. 


What types of students have you worked with?

All kinds. Every age! Several nationalities, some students with special needs.....I do not aim  to create piano prodigies, I simply want to instill the joy gained by knowing how to play beautifully. 


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

Watching a challenged student play his first Christmas Carol for his Dad. Breathtaking. 


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Please be particular regarding who you choose to take piano lessons from. You want somebody who cares about understanding how you learn and the amount of time you want to devote to this endeavor. Most people are overbooked these days including children. This experience needs to be joyful and unpressured. 


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

All you really need to know is that learning to play the piano is supposed to be fun while being work! You are attaining a skill that will bring you and others around you some top notch joy!!
