"I loved the compassion and enthusiasm that Ashlee and Stephanie created in the Intro to Piano Course. The content was thorough and fun. Would definitely recommend these teachers and class to anyone who is starting on their piano journey.”

- Leslie A

"Stephanie and Ashlee are fantastic at teaching the courses. They covered not just how to play the piano, but concepts related to why and how music works. This helped with a better overall understanding of the piano and how to play. They work very well as a team utilizing zoom to help work through concepts that might be difficult at a solo teacher. They encourage you as a beginner and express no person plays perfectly and perfection is not the goal. They are fun and encouraging to work with. You won’t be disappointed!”

-Steve M

"This Connection Experiment course was wonderful. Every lesson was taught with care and various examples were provided to enhance learning. The instructors are amazing in every way. I love that we are encouraged to be ourselves and allow our personalities to show through our pieces.”
