My Musical Influences
The world around us!
Becky is a fantastic piano teacher. My daughter had been taking lessons with another teacher which gave her the basics. Becky's style is structured and professional which has allowed my daughters skills to improve exponentially since she changed instructors to Becky. Becky makes the lessons fun and also makes clear her expectations of the student - assigning practice homework and games on the ipad to help improve skills too. I highly recommend this instructor!
