Get to know Mary Beth

Mary Beth grew up in Minnesota, graduating from Augsburg Lutheran College in 1981 with a B.S. in Music Therapy with her performance instrument piano..   She completed her Music Therapy Internship at Travis State School in Austin, TX.  Mary Beth has provided lessons for 40+ years. Her music therapy background allows her to evaluate each student individually, preparing a curriculum appropriate for each students learning styles and developmental needs.  She owned Waco Piano Center from 2003 - 2017, retiring in 2017 to care for her husband who had dementia.  She loves to teach all ages, all levels.  She has spent many years evaluating and comparing the various piano methods and technology available for piano.  Each student has different learning styles and interests, so  the music and books are tailored to those needs.  Parents are welcome to sit in the lessons any time.  The challenge is to keep the lessons fun and progressive.
