I have been teaching piano for over 30 years. I love teaching Let's Play Music graduates! They come to me with a solid, beginning foundation in piano. They have been exposed to note-reading, rhythm, chords, inversions, performing and so much more! They can even compose which is something I love to do in my studio. They come to private lessons instilled with a love for music. Additionally, parents of Let's Play Music are more involved which makes my job so much easier!... See More
Let's Play Music is AMAZING!!! I love the curriculum-- it is super fun to teach, and it does an incredible job helping students to thoroughly internalize music in a way that's very easy for them to learn. I have taught many children whose parents are musically well educated, and they often tell me that they learn a lot in my classes as well. I love that the kids learn how to write music and have opportunities to create their own composition! I love that every single lesson plan incorporates techniques for teaching auditory, visual, and kinesthetic learners. I love the parent-child bonding that occurs in class. I love the games we play! I love watching my students (even the super shy ones!) blossom with confidence and enthusiasm at the piano. I love hearing my students' parents say they wish they had known about Let's Play Music for their older children that took regular piano lessons, because their younger children in Let's Play Music seem to inherently know and understand music so much better. I love it when my students tell me they figured out how to play music we haven't covered yet in class, or that the beginning of Star Wars is simply sol-sol-sol-do! There is so much research that shows what a profound, lifelong effect music training has on the brain, and I often tell parents that if they are going to have their kids do any one thing, it should be music because it will benefit them the most throughout their life. And of course Let's Play Music is the PERFECT way to teach music to kids!! Teaching Let's Play Music has brought much joy and satisfaction to my life -- it's fun to teach, I get paid to have fun teaching, and I know I am making a positive, permanent difference in my students' lives....

I am a private piano teacher and a Connections teacher for Let’s Play Music graduates. I am very impressed with the solid musical base Let’s Play Music instills in it’s graduates. The students have solid note-reading skills, understand primary chords in all positions, have excellent knowledge of scale patterns, and are confident and creative in trying new pieces, improvisation and composition. I am more impressed with this programs every time I teach a new graduate—it is it just one gifted student, they all come out of the program with these skills. It is a very solid base to work from and I have enjoyed my Let’s Play music students very much. ... See More
My daughter LOVES music, but our family is definitely lacking in musical ability and I wasn't sure how or what to teach her. We were introduced to Sheleena Roger's Let's Play Music class, and it has been wonderful for my daughter! She has not only grown socially (she was quite shy), but she has been able to learn some fundamentals of music in such a fun way. She looks forward to every class, and often wants to spend much more time on homework than she needs to spend. The classes allow each student to shine in a playful way, but I know they're learning at the same time. I have also learned so much about music as I have helped her with her homework and attended the classes with her. It has been a great bonding and learning experience for all of us. I can't wait to get my son started when he's old enough.... See More

Mrs. Emy Lefevre is an incredible teacher and mentor! I love the company and the education it provides is exceptional!!!
The Let’s Play Music classroom was the perfect learning environment for my daughter! Classes are fun and upbeat with lots of movement and play. Difficult musical concepts were taught in a way kids can understand. We love this program and highly recommend it!
I love Let's Play Music! It turned my monotone singing son into a now 12 year old who has sung solos and loves to sing in choirs! As a music teacher, I am amazed at the wonderful musical foundation that Let's Play Music gives its students. It is so fun and yet so comprehensive!
My kids have always loved music, but Let’s Play Music took them to the next level and has made hem into mini musicians! I love this program because it develops a love of music in kids and helps them learn to be creative and explore music from a very young age.
I love the Let's Play Music program! I love the carefully thought out, step-by-step process of teaching music fundamentals to children through age-appropriate methods. This is truly a life-changing experience for children and their parents!
