Welcome to Keys of Joy! Studio
"Simply Music has opened the world of music making for our nine-year old son in a way that we never could have imagined. My husband and I are conservatory-trained classical musicians. When we first attempted to teach our son piano using the traditional method of reading music we were met with frustration and his eventual refusal to continue with lessons. Now, nine months later, he literally runs to play piano in the mornings before school."

Joan and Jeff Beal, parents, Grammy Award Winner San Francisco Opera Alumni Agoura Hills, California

Ethan: "I love piano lessons."
Connor: "I am gifted in music."

"I promise you those two comments never came out of my mouth during my seven years of traditional lessons."

Our students experience victory in their lessons and when they practice at home;

they play dozens of pop, blues, jazz and classical pieces within their first year;

they make their own arrangements of favorite tunes, or compose their own songs; and

make the piano a companion that they will enjoy for a lifetime.
