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
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."

"Quotes from my kids last
Ethan: "I love piano
Connor: "I am gifted in

years of traditional lessons."

College-age musicians are emotionally
healthier than their non-musician
counterparts. A study conducted at the
University of Texas looked at 362

semester of college. They were given
three tests, measuring performance
anxiety, emotional concerns and
alcohol related problems.
We are Evan and Joy and we are glad that
you are interested in piano! We love to
teach and we hope that you will join us in a
lifelong adventure of discovery and fun!
Piano lessons at our studio are amazing...
