Piano | Pleasant Grove

Becca grew up listening to her mom teaching piano lessons. She quickly became interested in the sounds and feel of the keys, and with her mom's help, learned to read music alongside letters and words starting at 3 years old. In high school she began taking more formal lessons from a neighbor, and fell even more in love with the piano. She earned one certificate at 15 for participating in Achievement in Music, after which she realized that her interests were not in competing but in accompanying choirs and other musicians. In high school and the years since then, she has had the opportunity to perform both accompanying other musicians and playing solos in all types of settings, from nearby churches to chamber choir concerts, and even to a stage in a museum in Japan during a blizzard. She began teaching students soon after graduating high school in 2016, and has since taught more than 18 private students ranging from ages 5 to 65. She encourages her students to find the music they want to play and patiently works with them to help make it happen. At the same time, she tries to teach the relevance and beauty of many styles and time periods of music. To Becca, the most rewarding part of teaching is working with her students and helping to nurture their confidence and reach their goals.

“Music in itself is healing. It’s an explosive expression of humanity. It’s something we are all touched by. No matter what culture we’re from, everyone loves music.”
- Billy Joel
