What others are saying.....


Rebecca Brown

"I never thought I would be able to play Debussy's Clair de Lune because I thought it was too hard. Having the fingering and the counting mapped out for me made it so much easier to understand! I am thrilled to have learned this piece using the Couch to Concert Hall approach!"

David Bertram

"After a 10-year hiatus from piano, I started working with Sarah and her on-line Couch To Concert Hall approach and I couldn’t be happier! I thought I would have to step back and tackle some easier repertoire to get my chops back, but Sarah’s methodical approach to tackling pieces and her supportive manner has me playing repertoire that I always wanted to play and that is well beyond what I could play previously. Commitment helps, of course, but when you work with a teacher who is constantly striving to find clever ways to make learning easier and who shows you that you can literally play anything, it’s pretty easy to commit to the program. Big fan!"

"I will never quit."
