“Simply Music® has broken the mould and set a new standard for what can be accomplished in a short period of time”. - Michelle Masoner, Board Member, Sacramento Board of Education

“I have seen a lot of music programs over the years. Some were fun. Some were clever. Some were thorough. Here’s one that has it all. In terms of presentation, effectiveness, philosophy – you name it – there’s nothing out there that compares at all.” –Mary Pride: Publisher, Practical Homeschool Magazine

“I have spent my life as a classically trained musician and earned my living at that for 13 years in the San Francisco Opera. I read music very well, have a fairly good ear, though I always worked hard as well. I have always yearned to be able to just sit down and play without depending always on music in front of me. I have yearned to have a more personal relationship with the piano, but never quite had the ability to do that. I understood the relationship to chords, but thought it would be a very difficult task to learn all the chords, and whatever else that would be required, to do this with some proficiency. The way you talk about music makes perfect sense to me. I have certainly approached the study of languages in that way, but never generalized it to the piano. I also understand how children function in learning, but again, never made the leap to the “piano”. I recently began with Simply Music. What a joy. I love your program. The instruction is fun and the progression enlightening. In just the 1st Level “I GOT IT”. It has been exciting for me. What I have learned has made me leap forward with songs I love. Figuring out the chords is not as hard as I thought it would be, and I am enjoying experimenting with different ways to do the accompaniments. My grandchildren are nearing a good age to begin with Simply Music®, and I think it is the PERFECT way for them to approach the study of music. It makes perfect sense. Thank you for what you are doing. I hope it revolutionizes the way teachers of beginners view their task. After all, it is really about the joy of making and hearing music…. and feeling it through your whole soul. Thank you for opening this door for me, I have wanted to do this all my life”. - Dottye Dean, SF Opera: San Francisco, California

“The Simply Music® program seems inherently self-motivating. Our son has learned to love the piano and his ability to create music on it has avoided the disenchantment we both experienced with having to spend weeks and months learning boring exercises which at times seemed only distantly related to music. Rather than parents and teachers having to make constant demands to practice, practice, practice, our son now has his own passion to motivate his continued learning.” – Richard & Patricia Brunner: Rocklin, California
