Learn more. Have more fun. Connect the Dots Music is the most effective approach to learning to play music. Through instruction, examples, practicing songs, and games, students learn music visually, aurally, and kinesthetically. This results in students learning to play piano or guitar more quickly, having more fun, developing a butter understanding, and retaining what they've learned.

In addition, students learn how to read music, play by ear, and write music. This requires developing different skills and provides the student a well-rounded foundation for enjoying creating music their entire life. And they can learn all types of music including classical, pop/rock, ragtime, jazz/blues, etc.

Music Teacher

Having studied and performed on multiple musical instruments for over 30 years, I've seen and experienced many of the problems with both traditional and non-traditional music lessons that leave students frustrated and with wasted years of music lessons. Unsatisfied with these approaches, I've spent countless hours developing methods that allow my students to understand music, or Connect the Dots. This helps them learn more quickly and retain what they've learned, providing the foundation for creating and enjoying music one's entire life.

Customer Testimonials

Madison has tried group lessons and several methods, but has improved more in several months with you than she did in the previous 2 years. I wish I had found you sooner!

I can't believe Jenna can play these songs. And she is excited about piano lessons. She thinks they're fun. You are an amazing teacher. Thank you!

As a school teacher with advanced courses in learning styles, teaching is my profession. I have taught for over 20 years. Many music instructors are still students or teach because they studied music in school. As you know, being good at something and being good at teaching something are very different skills! I teach concepts so that the knowledge gained is transferable to other instruments. Sadly, many teachers aren't familiar with these particular concepts; they only have the skills to play their instrument.
