Ms. Betsy Leete
Beginner - Intermediate Level Piano Instruction delivered to your door!
Originally from Pennsylvania, Ms. Elizabeth Ann Leete began her musical journey at the age of seven, when her family purchased a new piano. She has been singing and performing from the bench ever since!
Ms. Betsy attended the University of Delaware for her undergraduate degree where she studied Music Education. She later transferred to Aquinas College, where she completed her Bachelor of Arts degree in Education, with an emphasis in Music Education. Betsy continued her education to receive her Masters Degree in Music Education from New York University.
As a public school educator throughout her life she has taught a variety of subjects including keyboard studies, piano performance, general music, theory, choir and keyboard labs in Brooklyn, the Bronx, New Rochelle, New York, as well as Newark, New Jersey.
In addition to her skills as a music educator, Ms. Betsy is an accomplished vocalist and keyboardist and spent several years performing and traveling with popular keyboard based bands.
Since her return to Grand Rapids, she has taught privately, as well as at other area music studios. She has taught music for more than fourteen years.
We are thrilled to welcome Ms. Betsy to the Faculty of The Piano Cottage as our "On The Road" instructor. She will be teaching at the homes of families who prefer the convenience of lessons in their own home. Presently she has openings for Tuesdays and Thursdays. She also is available to teach piano at The Boston Street studio on Fridays between 3-6:30 pm.
