PIANO AND WOODWIND LESSONS
PRESCOTT, WI OR ONLINE VIA SKYPE
ALL AGES AND ABILITIES
Becky is no longer teaching at this time due to health reasons. Another teacher, Shelley Rusch, has bought and taken over the Prescott studio. If you are interested in piano, violin, cello, flute, or voice lessons, please visit Shelley's website at www.stcroixpianoandstrings.com.
A note from the teacher: I have thoroughly enjoyed teaching all of my local and Skype students and I hope to return to teaching in some form in the future. In the meantime I will keep this website up and unchanged so students, parents, and teachers can access the wealth of information available. Happy practicing everyone!
Beginning to Advanced Lessons On:

The piano is a great instrument for any age. There are a lot of different styles of piano music to choose from, and players of all levels and ages can benefit from lessons!
The oboe is known as the most difficult of the woodwind instruments, and with good reason. It takes dedication, determination, patience, and a ton of practice, but players are rewarded with a beautiful sound and a love of their instrument.
The bassoon is a double reed instrument like the oboe, and it's almost as difficult to play. With several more keys than other woodwind instruments, it can be technically demanding, as well as difficult to play in tune to produce a good sound. When played well, the bassoon is a fun instrument with a lot of character.
The clarinet is a popular instrument for young band students, and it is very versatile, played in everything from jazz to Mozart. With a good reed and proper instruction, parents of beginners taking private lessons won't have to listen to that horrible "squeaking" nearly as long as other parents of beginners before their child starts to really make music!
Beginning to Intermediate Lessons On:
The recorder is much more than a toy. It is a versatile instrument that comes in several sizes. It is an easy instrument to learn to play but it's a challenge to play it well.
The flute is a popular instrument for students of all ages. With the invention of curved head joints and smaller beginning instruments, the flute can be played by even very young students.
New: Voice Lessons for Kids
Voice lessons, in addition to weekly piano lessons, can be a valuable tool in developing a student's ear and musicianship. Voice lessons will also ensure that kids who are already singing are using proper technique and not injuring their voices.
Beginning saxophone lessons are offered on a case-by-case basis. Music theory tutoring is also available upon request.
