Title: Private Music Teacher/DMA student
Praised for her honest and compelling stage presence, Bethany's operatic performances include: Romilda from Handel's Serse, Micaëla, Pamina, Fiordiligi, and Dido. Bethany has a special interest in contemporary and Romantic-era art song and maintains an active recital schedule collaborating with colleagues in addition to presenting works for unaccompanied voice.
Bethany is a native of Newfoundland, but she spent her childhood in the southern United States. After completing her Bachelor and Masters in Music at Memorial University in St John’s, Newfoundland, Bethany taught and performed for two years before she began her DMA in Voice Performance at Western University in London, Ontario. Her research interests include singer psychology and understanding how we can improve singers’ relationship with their voice. This summer, Bethany will be moving to Nova Scotia to work and teach in her family’s hometown of Yarmouth.
When she isn’t singing, Bethany loves to learn about intersectional feminism, read classic British literature, and laugh at the antics of her puppy, Penny.
