Private and Group Simply Music Piano® Lessons

Ages 6-7 and up- It's never too late!
No more "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star."

Learn to play real music right away!

Play piano with both hands from your very first lessons with the revolutionary Simply Music Piano® method! We believe that piano lessons should be fun and we think you'll agree that Simply Music Piano® will get you started faster and easier than traditional lessons. We'll teach pop, blues, jazz, classical, accompaniments, arrangements, and ballads from your very first lessons.

We help you learn your way around the keyboard, all while introducing music theory. Then, we introduce reading music so you have a better understanding of what the notation means. It's like learning to read books, first you learn to speak, then you learn the grammar! Music is just another language.

Play a Story® Piano Lessons

Ages 4 and up- Great for young learners and great for those exploring how to do composition!

Have you been told your child is "too young" to learn to play the piano? Not anymore! Play a Story® is a revolutionary composition-focused program more appropriate for young learners. Young children often struggle with having the attention span and control to flourish in the structured environment of regular piano lessons.


Play a Story® allows young children to become familiar with the piano at an age-appropriate pace through learning composition and musicality. Older students can add elements of Play a Story® to their existing lesson plan to develop improvisation and composition skills.

Homeschool Classes

Because General Music is the best foundation for individualized lessons later!

General music education is often overlooked for homeschool students because it is not available, and students are left to take instrument specific education.  While there is a worthwhile pursuit, it is best done in conjunction with the student receiving and learning fundamental musical concepts through a general music class. We are here to change that and let your child gain a foundational music education, that individualized lessons can build upon. We focus on singing and learning folk songs, playing games, playing non-pitched percussion, xylophones and metallophones, recorders, and in learning music reading, theory, and history.

50 minute, weekly classes available!
