    “This is a wonderful music program and the results are astounding! Even if you don’t consider yourself musically talented, this program is designed for you! It is easy to understand and easy to play a full repertoire of beautiful songs from a variety of genres. I also think this program could be a major breakthrough for children with a variety of cognitive delays and learning disabilities. I love the Simply Music approach.”

    “Let me begin by saying just how thrilled I am with the Simply Music program. I’m playing better now than I did after years of traditional lessons. I hope you continue to provide even more advanced studies, for a long, long time to come.”

    “I bought your programs a few months ago. I have to tell you I love the program. I’m 33 years old, and never had a chance to learn to play piano. I am totally enjoying the program, with the video it’s like you are right here with me as I am learning. My seven year old daughter has taken an interest and has begun to practice as well. It is so awesome to play ‘Dreams Come True’ with my two girls beside me singing. I do however have a problem with Jackson Blues….I can’t get it out of my head!!! Thank you so much for developing such a wonderful program and making it available to us!!!”

“My son is super excited to practice. He immediately shows off how he has mastered the previous songs and can’t wait to learn more. Each song is taught in small bits, repeated several times and then he has to “teach” me the small bits. This really helps him to quickly learn new songs… Amanda is always positive and reassuring.


Simply Music
