  Pam Beaver

Instructor for Adult Keyboard


Pam Beaver began her music education in elementary school.  From her very first lesson, she knew she had a God-given love and passion for music.  Pam started out playing violin, but later decided to learn piano and flute.  Throughout middle and high school she participated in marching, concert and jazz bands.  At age 14, she was recruited and began her life long love of Worship & Arts through church worship teams and organizations.  When not sitting at the piano, she can be seen driving children safely to school in a York County bus or spending time with husband, Robert, and children, Rebekah and Caleb.  Her main focus in music education is to uncover and develop the gift and talent each of her students possess.
