Cello Student

“..(Beth is) extremely patient and nurturing - she guides you to be a better player...(and is) always positive and encouraging"

Cello Student Parent

“…(my daughter) has not once gotten into the car after a lesson with you without a big smile on her face, telling me what a great lesson she had. We love your calm, intuitive, and yet logical, approach. You have been such an inspiration to her, personally, musically and as a mentor-teacher.”

Cello Student Parent

“Lesson time with Beth is always stress free and positive, making the progress seen in my son's playing and understanding seem almost effortless, yet very rewarding - the way great teaching should be”
