What people are saying about lessons at Keys of Joy!

"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!"

Nealy Newkirk, parent of student, Lawrence

"I'm 31 years old and I'm playing the piano. Any age can learn to play and it's fun and a great program. I love that I know how to play so many songs already while adding more every week."

Taylor Schreiner, adult student, Lawrence

“I’m just waiting for my granddaughter to be old enough. She’s always listening to me play and I’m just waiting until she’s old enough so she can start!”

Debbie Quirarte, adult student, Lawrence

"I love this teaching method and Evan Hunter makes playing so much fun! Thrilled to be a student at Keys of Joy!"

Marsha Smith Jones, adult student, Lawrence

"Our son has had a very positive experience. He enjoys practicing, enjoys his lessons, and his love for music has grown. Evan is patient, funny, and has a love for music. I think that his students feel this and they thoroughly enjoy him as a teacher. We are very impressed with Simply Music and we greatly enjoy Keys of Joy!"
