Critical acclaim and testimonials for the Simply Music program and Miss Erin:
“I have seen a lot of music programs over the years. Here’s one that has it all. In terms of presentation, effectiveness, philosophy – you name it – there’s nothing out there that compares.”
- Mary Pride, Publisher, Practical Homeschooling Magazine
“I have been extremely impressed with the Simply Music program. As a drop out of traditional lessons myself I was so excited to learn about this method! My son has been taking lessons for over a year now and can play approximately 40 songs, most of which are from memory. He’s learning classical (which is his favorite), jazz(which is my favorite), and traditional music, along with learning how to accompany and transpose the key in which a song is played. My son is only 9 years old. As I participate with him and see what he’s learning I recognize the wisdom in the order of the songs being taught and how it will help him in the future. I love that I get to participate with him and be his supporter (I’ve also learned most of the songs myself and it’s helped me in my own efforts to improve my playing).
When we started out with lessons our teacher told us to “trust in the process” and trust her. Sometimes that is a stretch when you come from a traditional background, but I’m so glad we have, I would never go back to doing it the old way. This method encourages fun, creativity, and success from the very first lesson.”
“I have been taking piano for over a year, it’s really cool. I’m on foundation 3. I like my lessons with my teacher because sometimes she lets us jam together and it’s really fun. My favorite songs are Fur Elise, Minuet in G, and the Australian Duet that I get to play with my mom. I think everyone should do Simply Music!”
