Biography

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. After just one year at St Mary's, she gained a scholarship to attend the Royal Northern College of Music under the tutelage of renowned piano teacher Helen Krizos.

 

Bethany finds performing to be an exciting and rewarding experience.  The depth of feeling and sensitivity she lends to the music has gained her numerous awards, as well as the Alex Watters Bursary at the Aberdeen Music Festival. She is determined to carve out a career as a professional pianist.

It is such an honor to be associated with the Dewar Arts Award, and I am so grateful to have been given this opportunity to develop and push myself to become a dynamic and successful musician.
