My husband and I are the parents of five daughters (ages 11-20), all of whom have taken piano lessons from Coralie Harless. I have to say that I was absolutely amazed to see and hear their progress after just a few piano lessons … Shelly Brown | Parent
… Coralie is an amazing concert pianist, as well as an accompanist, and can sight read anything put in front of her. She passes along these critical classical skills to her students, while adding a variety of music and styles to capture and hold the attention of students at every skill level. Her method is brilliant! Debbie Bromley | Vocal Teacher
It’s a terrible waste when people learn to play but never develop confidence to play in public. Learning in small groups begins this playing with others from the beginning. We play as “Service” in the retirement homes, often within months of learning simple music. I provide the opportunities and incentives for these opportunities because it’s vital to their learning experience. My students regularly perform in the communities where they live by accompanying at Church, School Productions, High School Jazz Bands, Graduations, Funerals, Weddings, Baptims, etc.
Recitals are kept short and sweet and are held in the spring of each year where we welcome family and friends to join us.
Traditional piano lessons focus on lesson books that most students find boring. Students respond much better when we supplement their foundation with music they know and love. My method gets students reading from the very beginning, then learning to sight read, play by ear, improv, compose and perform.
