"Carly pushes me hard and motivates me to do my best. She corrects me often on what I need to fix but I am better because of it. I love learning new pieces because I know I will and can finish them with Carly's help!"

“Changed my attitude...”

Working with Carly over the past three years has really changed my attitude towards piano. It used to be a chore to practice, but now it's one of my favorite things to do. Carly has helped me a lot with sight reading especially, and now I can play almost anything I want.

“Fun and fits my level...”

“Carly’s piano teaching method is fun and fits my level of playing exactly.  I like it better than the Suzuki method.  Carly is always happy and friendly.  She knows how to encourage me to play my best.”

“Carly is amazing! My boys have been studying piano since they were five years old and have had multiple teachers over the years. Each of their teachers were technically proficient, but Carly is so much more than that! As any mother knows, finding a great teacher who inspires your child to do his/her best work, is a rare treasure and Carly does just that. My boys want to do their best for her each week. Practicing has even become easier as they hope to pass off songs just to please her. She is cheerful, happy, and kind even when instructing them about what they did wrong. We are so grateful to Carly for giving our boys the gift of music in their lives!”.

“We love Carly as a piano teacher!”

“We love Carly as a piano teacher! Hazel had lost her enjoyment of piano playing prior to Carly’s arrival. With Carly’s help, Hazel’s enjoyment of practicing returned! Carly provided Hazel with great music to play that fit her personality. Hazel’s musicianship blossomed with Carly’s help. Thanks, Carly!”

"Loved our online lessons with Carly!”

“We have loved our online lessons with Carly! Having the lesson in our home is convenient, and I am able to hear what my kids need help with so our practice sessions are more effective. We set up our computer so that Carly sees just as if she was in the room with us, and my kids think it’s extra special to use the computer for lessons and practice. Carly holds a high standard and expects a lot from our kids which has made a big difference in their skill level. Carly is consistent, punctual, flexible, and kind. We love her!”

“Great teaching style...”

“I have loved having Carly as my sons piano teacher for the past two years! She has been able to encourage him to play far beyond what he ever thought possible and has helped him gain confidence in performance settings. She has a great teaching style that allows the student to not only learn music theory, but also to play with great musicianship. I would highly recommend her!”
