Beth has taught piano for the past 20 years in New Zealand, Australia, Germany and England, both privately and for music foundations. She can prepare students for all grade levels, including ATCL/Diploma and beyond. Beth is a friendly and approachable teacher for students of all ages. Lessons for children are reward based and fun.

Her home studio is equipped with a Kawai grand piano and seating area. Parents are welcome to join in the later part of the lesson for mini performances and progress updates. All students have 2 private youtube playlists - for Performances and Tutorials. Parents can view their child's piano playing on their Performance playlist. These are recorded during the lesson and maintained by the teacher. Mini piano demonstrations are uploaded onto the tutorial playlist as practise aid. To protect students' privacy, both playlists are available only via private link. 

Exams and piano competitions are encouraged but never mandatory. Students are taught theory, technical studies and a variety of piano repertoire. Beth's focus points are on building a solid technique, expanding musical understanding and to foster a life-long love for music.
