“Mrs. Carly is such a great piano teacher! My 4-year-old daughter has learn a lot from her program. We always look forward to learning from her.”

– Vo Mai

I have purchased Busy Moms, Kids and Preschoolers. This program fits all of our needs because we can keep progressing at our own pace and in our own time. I teach my two grandsons, age 3 and 5, at every available opportunity. We share purposeful, musical play and progress at our own individual pace. We all love it and have fun! Thank you, Carly

Mary Socall

We were looking for an introductory music course for our son when we began homeschooling kindergarten.  Busy Preschoolers Do Music was a great fit for us by including play style learning approaches.  The class is a great length for active young learners and Carly is brilliant at keeping their interest while covering the important fundamentals of music theory and piano geography.  I would highly recommend her course

Julia Denny

Great for introducing musical concepts to toddlers and preschoolers. The lessons are well laid out and have a good pace. We spend 15 minutes here and there with our 2 and 4 year old doing a lesson. They love it and have grown quickly!

“SO…HOW EXACTLY DOES THIS WORK?”

 

Upon purchase, you are sent login credentials that will allow you to access this online course as a team leader. You’ll be able to add (and revoke!) up to 5 members to be on your team who will also be able to access the course. 

Because the course is geared for preschool-aged children, each lesson is comprised of 3-5 musical activities that are about 2-3 minutes each — think “Sesame Street” style!

You can view the lessons at your own pace (I recommend one per week). There are checklists within each lesson that give you suggested activities to complete in between the lessons to help your student retain the information that is taught.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Do I need to have a piano in my home to participate in this course?

While you don’t need to run out and purchase a grand piano in order to enroll in this course, we will be exploring and playing the piano at each lesson. If you have even a small keyboard in your home, that will definitely be adequate for this program! By Part 3 of the preschool program, we do play songs in the piano in nearly every lesson.

How many students can I add to my team?

Your initial purchase includes your account plus the ability to add 5 students to your team. You can purchase additional licenses, 2 at a time, from your team leader dashboard.

As long as your membership is active, you are able to replace students within the program as needed for the amount of licenses you’ve purchased (revoke access from a team member and add access for a team member).

How long do I have access to the course?

You purchased an annual membership, which means that it will renew annually until you cancel the membership. After you cancel the membership, you will retain access until the end of the current billing period. After the end of the billing period, your team leader and team members accounts will no longer be accessible.

Is this a recurring fee or one-time fee?

Supplementary courses are one-time fees. You purchase lifetime access to the course with your one-time fee.

Is this a recurring fee or one-time fee?
