    Carolyn is a wonderful piano teacher. My daughter started with Carolyn 2 months ago and absolutely loves her. She has innovative programs that engage the students in learning music in addition to offering traditional lessons.

About this pro

I teach Piano, Keyboard, & Music Theory. I also prepare students who are trying to get a scholarship for college. I am a Nationally Certified Piano Teacher. I adjudicate for the State of Minnesota Music Teachers Association Piano, Ensemble, Contest and Theory exams. I have a Master's Degree in Piano Performance and Pedagogy (the art of teaching Piano.) I perform for many events and have released a CD called White Christmas. I teach any age student,any level and ability. I have taught a wide range of handicapped students .I also teach many preschool and homeschool students. I have taught for over 33 years. I tailor my lessons to fit with the students goals and interests. I have had many, many students who have gone into music as a career. I try to make the lessons as fun as possible. I have digital pianos, and several music programs that students may enjoy. I also use games and incentive programs such as my Trophy programs. I offer Two formal recitals per year and many other opportunities for those who are interested. I love to teach my passion! This is the best "job" in the world! It really isn't a job at all! It is fun! I love to have all the varieties of students. No two students are exactly alike. My day changes constantly as each student comes through the door.

    Q & A

    • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
      Currently, I have a special trial offer of only $80 a month for a maximum of 3 months (if paid in advance.) After that, I charge a flat rate every month that includes everything. All lessons, books, group lessons etc. That way when a student starts piano. They will always know what their bill is going to be. There are no surprise bills. The more rapidly a student progress, the more books they will need-so books can be a huge expense.With the flat rate-you do not have to pay for the books. Please see my website tuition information page for detailed information.
    • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
      I like to meet them before the lessons begin to best evaluate the situation and to be sure we are the right fit for each other:)
    • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
      Reasearch, research, research! Learning all social media avenues to keep up with the younger students. In today's society, students use technology more and more. We as teachers, need to recognize and adapt rather than fight. Students today are used to immediate availability. In my studio, if a student shows me a You Tube video that they want to learn-we will. Sometimes,(usually) the song is so new that there is no sheet music available for it. That means, we will sit down, listen to the song. And figure it out on our own. Students love being able to impress friends with the latest music!
    Coverage Area for Reisinger Conservatory of Music is about 30+ miles of Lakeville, MN.
