Bethany began playing piano at the age of seven, and through commitment and talent has since become a highly skilled musician.
Bethany excelled in her Grade 8 piano (ABRSM) at age fifteen. She then went on to study at St Mary's Music School in Edinburgh and achieved the school’s highest award, winning the Directors’ Recital Prize in June 2012.
