Piano Lessons for Beginners

“I found Cara on Craigslist.  I was intrigued by the Simply Music program and felt that this would accommodate the way I learn.  Her prices are reasonable, she is flexible and accommodating, skilled, humble, and humorous.  She adapted to an online platform during COVID and continued our lessons without a skipped beat.  I have found her and the program to be quite enlightening and enjoyable.  I am excited to continue building my piano skills!”

“I have been working with Cara for 6 months, and things are going very well! She is great with instruction, and I think we are moving through the material at a good pace. I would recommend anyone who wants to learn piano to give Cara a call!”

“What a joy!  I have a very stressful job with little free time and was looking for something fun and relaxing to add to my life.  I found Cara and the Simply Music program she uses for teaching piano quite by accident and I’m so glad I did.  Cara is welcoming, calm, has a good sense of humor, and really knows her stuff. She makes it easy to learn and I’m playing real music with both hands right from the start — none of the toddler songs, endless scales, and tedious reading exercises that most music lessons require. This program just makes sense; I think anyone who wants to learn piano can do this.  Whatever your goal is with piano you can do this! And Cara can show you how.  I recommend her and the teaching system she uses wholeheartedly. I wish she and this method had existed when I was taking other music lessons years ago.”

“After many fits and starts in learning piano the traditional way over the last 10 years and after dreading various chords,  I accidentally landed on Simply Music. Now chords and accompaniments are my best friends and playing piano is my premier relaxing activity rather than a chore! The Simply Music method of playing the piano without the sheet music is extremely appealing to someone like me who wants to enjoy playing piano rather than studying how to play piano.”

“Cara, is a wonderful teacher, and does a great job at moving at the pace of the student. As someone who took piano lessons for 6 months over 20 years ago, I was not sure how I would do picking it up again, but the Simply Music method is amazing. My family and I are constantly impressed with how much I have been able to learn and retain in just a couple of months. If you are looking for a piano teacher, I would definitely recommend Cara and the Simply Music method!”
