Dr. Beth was a wonderful tutor.

She knew the AP Music Theory material very well and was able to explain things in amazing detail. If I wasn't understanding a concept, she would go back and explain it a different way so that I understood. I only prepared for the AP Music Theory exam for a couple months prior to the test and was still able to score a 4. I couldn't have done it without her.

Outstanding Educator

Dr. Beth is an educator who pays attention to what her students know/are learning and helps fill in the gaps. I am an adult trying to pick up from where I left off with music theory as a young person and she has been so valuable to me. I feel more and more confident with my knowledge after every lesson. She is an easy person to communicate with and goes the extra mile with her learning resources. I highly suggest her to anyone of any age trying to learn something new or expand their knowledge of music theory.

A fantastic tutor

Dr. Beth was truly fantastic. So kind, knowledgeable and supportive. My daughter so enjoyed the lesson. She was skeptical about doing tutoring online but would like to meet with Dr. Beth weekly to help her with AP Music Theory. Though we only had one session, I would not hesitate to highly recommend her to anyone. Thank you so much, Dr. Beth!

Knowledgable and explained clearly

Reviewed all music terms from the assignment. Listen extensively to the piece and analyzed it--identifying all of the terms within the music. Also found some historical facts on the main composer and shared those links.

Corinne, 1 lesson with Dr. Beth

Great tutor!

Dr. Beth was patient and very helpful. She helped me understand music theory concepts such as SATB writing rules and different cadences. I would highly recommend her as your next tutor.
