Studio Lessons

1,500 Students of all ages have learned to play piano here, let's get started.

I really don't think any other teacher could have given them anywhere close to the positive experiences or the rapid learning that they have had with Coralie. I absolutely highly recommend Coralie Harless to everyone as their piano teacher!
Shelly Brown | Parent
I had taken piano for 5 years before taking from Coralie. I hated to practice! I was not advancing and I was not being very challenged, so it was not fun. My mom bribed me to start taking from Coralie, but I am so glad she did. I learned more from her in a year than I had in my past five years combined.
Ashley | Former Student
Coralie is an accomplished and outstanding teacher. My two daughters have taken lessons from her for 4 years and they both have made amazing progress with her. Her excellent attitude and musical ability are evident in all aspects of her teaching.
Diane Hawkins | Parent
Hunter took private lessons with Coralie initially and I thought that was great, but his real progress and learning came when she started the group lessons. Having to keep pace with the other students and his competition to try to be better than the rest has been very motivating for Hunter to practice.
Sandy Pruett | Parent
Coralie Harless has a great gift for teaching. She teaches much more than piano...history, theory, accompanying skills, and most of all, confidence. Coralie knows how to motivate, develop, and train students to become true pianists.
Michelle Stark | Music Teacher
When my daughter Laura began taking lessons with Coralie Harless, we were pleased with the rapid progress made in many directions. Coralie provided lots of rich and varied pieces of music for Laura to play. Coralie influenced Laura. She was not just a teacher but also a mentor and inspiration.
Mike | Parent
There just aren't enough words to express how deeply we have valued Coralie Harless as a music instructor and mentor to our daughter. Allison started and finished her piano career with Coralie and enjoyed every single minute.
Wanda Hom | Parent
I have known Coralie for 15 years and hold her in the highest regard both personally and professionally. She is an outstanding teacher and pianist-- dedicated to sharing her time and talents with the students and to helping them develop their own musical gifts.

Practice

is the greatest key to success. Students are motivated by the success of others. No one wants to be left behind. Groups provide a powerful incentive to practice when students know that their peers will be listening.

Feedback

Students hear and see how others are doing. This helps them to learn proper modeling. Even errors become great teaching opportunities.

Playing For Others

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

Recitals are kept short and sweet and are held in the spring of each year where we welcome family and friends to join us.

Priorities

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.

Want To Get Started?

Send me an Email, it's the best way to connect.  Tell me about your student then let's set up an appointment to meet.  It only takes 15-20 minutes but gives you a good idea if this is the best place for your child.
