    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!

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

Assessing his/her learning style and what is important to individual student in goal planning 

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. $30/lesson 

How did you get started teaching?

I taught classroom music in a preschool and many parents asked me to give them and their children private lessons. It took off from there. I have been living in at Atlanta and recently returned to Memphis to live and am eager to teach here again. 

What types of students have you worked with?

All kinds. Every age! Several nationalities, some students with special needs.....I am not out to create piano prodigies, I simply aim to instill the joy gained by knowing how to play beautifully. I am best at teaching beginner and intermediate levels; I send the more advanced students to other teachers. 

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!!
