She moved back to her hometown of Minneapolis in 1993 and worked as a jingle singer for Radio Concepts and headed the vocal department at McNally Smith College of Music. She performed and recorded as Liz Forester during that time.

In addition to her career as a performer, Beth is an experienced educator, arranger and music director. She has directed ensembles and taught at some of the nation’s leading institutions including the University of Southern California.

Welcome!

Hello, and welcome to my website! This is a new re-vamping of a website that has existed for quite a while now, but I am determined to update this version more frequently and accurately. I am the Music Director at Coast Music in Hermosa Beach, the Music Director of College Audition LA, as well as a co-owner of RWB Music Services. With all these jobs, in addition to the many performance gigs I do, I am kept pretty busy. But I am always open to new projects :). Contact me with any questions and check this site often for upcoming performance dates!

I offer private coaching at RWB Music Services in (Palos Verdes) on Tuesdays and at Coast Music (Hermosa Beach) on Wednesdays and Fridays.
