Beth loves working with people of all ages to share the joy of music, and helping them experience music in new ways. She especially believes in imparting a love of music at a young age, and helping young people discover their musical passion. “I love seeing kids excited about making music. Whether it is with their voice or an instrument, music touches their lives in a way that nothing else can. It allows them the expression and creativity they don’t often get anywhere else.”
