I have had an excellent experience with Simply Music taught by Kym Ng. Simply Music is a non-traditional music program that focuses on getting students playing relatively complex songs through patterns and hearing the music. As a former piano student, the traditional method focuses on reading music and playing very basic songs for quite some time. Simply Music instead helps students understand music and helps them create their own music within months of starting lessons. It is a fantastic method and I'm so happy to have a son who is excited about music and playing the piano. Kym Ng is a teacher who uses multiple methods to teach her students-games- tactile manipulatives, clapping, singing, etc. She really connects with my son and has both a friendly, kind personality and also direct manner that I think works very well teaching music. She also does group lessons which to the newcomer seems odd but really does work well. My son had another girl that he started with and they practice so they don't let their "teammate" down. It works!! I couldn't be happier with our lessons with Kym and am so happy I found her. My son is a now a creative pianist and loves music!
