Introduction: Hi! My name is Kathy - I own New Groove Music Studio with my friend and fellow musician, Elise. I absolutely LOVE sharing my passion for music through teaching! I've taught voice and piano to students of all ages, genres, and experience levels from as young as 4 through to adult learners. Past students of mine and my other teacher's at New Groove have gone on to create music as songwriters, compete in national competitions such as The Voice, and perform lead roles in musicals. Most importantly, I encourage students to find joy and confidence in themselves through their music lessons! At my studio, New Groove, we offer private lessons, group classes, performance opportunities INCLUDED in the price of lessons. I have just added a few new AMAZING teachers to my team and they are currently taking new students in piano, voice, drums, saxophone, brass, and wind instruments. Music lessons with our team of teachers at New Groove will offer you a personalized, fun, and innovative musical experience where every student is part of a community of passionate, thriving musicians! Let's set you up for your first lesson! Give me a call and let's chat =) **COVID-19 UPDATE: The New Groove community uses our Member's Portal to launch virtual lessons. Students have been loving connecting, meeting each other, and learning virtually. We use Zoom and Google Meet! **A note on pricing: Lessons with New Groove come with extra group classes, performances, and perks that are INCLUDED when you take lessons. Intrigued by the included extras?!? Contact me directly to find out more!

I took piano lessons with Elise and it was great. It’s hard to get into music when you start late but she was so responsive to working with me that I was able to pick up the music so much easier. I couldn’t recommend her and her teaching style more!

Elise is a fantastic teacher. Piano seemed very overwhelming to me when I first started but Elise helped me set goals and keep me on track. She has great knowledge and is friendly and kind. I would highly recommend New Groove Music Studio for piano lessons!

I had the pleasure of observing a few of Elises lessons. Elise is absolutely wonderful! She knows exactly how to help each student, be it with piano or vocal. Her students receive all of the tools that are necessary towards becoming well educated musicians. This is successfully represented by the outstanding results her students produce. I highly recommend New Groove Music Studio to anyone in search of an experienced, and amazing music teacher.

Ever since joining new groove I’ve been continuously impressed by what I’ve been able to accomplish. I love all the instructors and they all genuinely want to see their students improve. Learning something new from people who are truly passionate about what their teaching makes lessons a ton of fun. I’ll continue to recommend new groove to friends and family!
