Piano, Dalcroze Eurhythmics
Along with music degrees from Whitworth University, The University of Illinois, and Longy School of Music, Betsy brings a lifetime of experiences in teaching piano lessons and music classes with all ages, and has enjoyed a variety of opportunities working with students from many age groups and musical backgrounds. She offers individual piano lessons as well as musical small-group classes for all ages. For twelve years, she was a teacher of piano teachers and also instructor of Dalcroze Eurhythmics at the University of Saint Thomas, and for nearly twenty years, a faculty member at the Saint Paul Conservatory of Music in Saint Paul, MN. These experiences have allowed her to develop a lively yet artistic approach which involves the “whole person” in music making which includes singing, improvising, and whole body movement, exploring music fundamentals while learning pieces from our great heritage of piano repertoire.
