Betsy has been teaching our two girls for over 5 years now. We couldn't be happier! She really understands each child and what works for them as individuals. She allows them to aim for their potential with encouragement and enthusiasm. Betsy knows how to get the most of her students without the hardcore pressure some teachers are known to exhibit. She is so pleasant to be around and my girls really enjoy their time learning! She is extremely qualified and we consider ourselves lucky to have her!




Santa Monica, CA

Betsy has turned two very different young kids into great piano enthusiasts and budding musicians! We tried a couple of other teachers before her, and really appreciate Betsy's experience, style and approach. She is flexible and fun, as well as a pro, and figures out how to engage at an individual level.
