Feedback From Our Happy PIANO PLAYERS


Hans Saib

I have found the "Play Piano Chords Today" classes not only very effective in learning to play the piano, but also positive, encouraging, and most of all fun.

Gail Caryn

I was told by a piano teacher at age 20 that I did not have the co-ordination to play the piano. For 25 years, I believed what she had said until Linda Gould proved her wrong. Linda is a fantastic teacher.

Wendy Patterson

I have taken traditional piano lessons in the past & find the PPCT method much more comprehensive. In contrast to just learning notes and how to read music, PPCT teaches us to make music.
