Hello, I'm Becs - an experienced accompanist and piano and flute teacher based in West Yorkshire. I have been teaching and accompanying since 1995 and I absolutely love what I do!

ACCOMPANIMENT: I provide high quality accompaniment for singers / instrumentalists across Yorkshire. I work as a rehearsal and concert accompanist for Village Voices Baildon, Barnsley Singers and Barnsley Youth Choir. I also offer freelance services to accompany singers and instrumentalists in performances, auditions and music exams. 
Accompanying is specialist skill and I am responsive to the performers, putting them at ease and ensuring my accompaniment follows and blends with the soloists music. With strong sight-reading skills, I can provide short notice accompaniment if required. References available on request; testimonials and more information available at

TEACHING: I am proud to provide piano and flute tuition to learners of all ages and abilities. Lessons are fun, personalised and promote great technique. We work on theory, technical skill, repertoire and creativity. Whether students are working towards exams or not, including all these elements in ways that engage every learner means students become well-rounded musicians from the start. Even the youngest beginners will be creating their own tunes and learning through games, apps, sound and movement. More information available at

Did You Know Music Facts

Accompaniment is the musical parts which provide the rhythmic and/or harmonic support for the melody or main themes of a song or instrumental piece. There are many different styles and types of accompaniment in different genres and styles of music. In homophonic music, the main accompaniment approach used in popular music, a clear vocal melody is supported by subordinate chords. In popular music and traditional music, the accompaniment parts typically provide the "beat" for the music and outline the chord progression of the song or instrumental piece. The accompaniment for a vocal melody or instrumental solo can be played by a single musician playing an instrument such as piano, pipe organ, or guitar. While any instrument can in theory be used as an accompaniment instrument, keyboard and guitar-family instruments tend to be used if there is only a single instrument, as these instruments can play chords and basslines simultaneously (chords and a bassline are easier to play simultaneously on keyboard instruments, but a fingerpicking guitarist can play chords and a bassline simultaneously on guitar). A solo singer can accompany herself by playing guitar or piano while she sings, and in some rare cases, a solo singer can even accompany himself or herself just using his or her voice and body
