Becky has been a musician since childhood, and a storyteller since her twenties; She graduated from Colgate University with majors in English and Music, and then studied the creative arts in education at Lesley University. She makes her living as a musician, teacher, and storyteller in the Brattleboro, Vermont, area and travels as a teaching artist and choral conductor. She is the founder and director of the Brattleboro Women's Chorus, and the new director of Animaterra in Keene, NH. Becky is the organist and choir director at the Second Congregational Church in Londonderry, Vermont. Becky also leads monthly sings at many senior residences and adult day cares in the Brattleboro area.
She has been a touring artist in both New Hampshire and Vermont for many years, and offers storytelling performances (with music woven in) for families and children, young children in particular. Becky taught storytelling to teachers in training at Antioch New England for many years, and continues to enjoy teaching others to tell stories in single workshops or class settings. Her storytelling residencies for elementary school children engage students in both creating and sharing stories. Becky's years as a teacher inform her performances, and she is known for her ability to engage and interest her audiences, and encourage participation.
Becky sings with the quartet "Big Woods Voices" and enjoys studying jazz standards and performing them. Most recently, she has founded "Chimsee Music Publishing" to market her many compositions and arrangements for women's chorus.
