These aren't ordinary piano lessons...

Our young students are playing great sounding music from their very first lessons

They are learning 30 to 50 songs in their first year

They are making the piano a companion for a lifetime

"After the first month it was already amazing how she was progressing! About six months in she was at a friend's house and they were messing around on the piano; my daughter started playing and the whole family came in to hear her. Her mother called me and asked how long she had been playing piano because they just couldn't believe how good she was. Mr. Hunter is a wonderful instructor and the program is such a neat and exciting way to learn piano. I would highly recommend Keys of Joy!"

Simply Music changes everything

  1. We delay the reading process by about a year or until it is developmentally appropriate. Our students are playing great sounding music with both hands from their first lessons.
  2. We show our students how to visually map sequences and patterns to the keyboard so that they can start playing immediately without referring to sheet music.
  3. After they have developed a repertoire of 30 to 50 songs in all styles, we introduce our students to an innovative approach to reading that makes extensive use of the songs that they have already learned.

Victory with the piano

Our lessons are filled with achievement and laughter. Students play for each other in every lesson. They experience fun, growth and the self-affirmation that comes from genuine achievement. Our students experience victory after victory in lessons and when they practice at home. Students who complete the full Simply Music program can play anything they want in blues, pop, jazz and contemporary styles, accompany other musicians, play from sheet music, and create their own arrangements of existing tunes and create their own original songs. They love to play and it shows!
