MAYBE YOU'VE HEARD...
There are many benefits to learning to play the piano.
Learning the piano demands so much mental concentration and stimulation that players' brains are actually structured differently. Playing the piano strengthens the connection between the right & left hemispheres of the brain.
Learning piano develops self-discipline, confidence and increased academic skills. It also reduces fatigue, anxiety and depression and is an outlet for emotional expression.
Increased thickness in parts of the brain responsible for executive funcioning means that students have strong memories, attentional control and organizational skills.

Hi! I’m Carly.
I'm the creator of Busy Kids Do Piano. I’ve been teaching piano for 15 years in all kinds of different settings -- classrooms, my home studio, facilities that serve kids with special needs….and now, online!
I work with my own children on their musical instruments whenever it fits into our day and I know that they are in a “good spot” to do work. Sometimes this means waiting until my husband is home and can entertain one child or the other. Sometimes this means helping my daughter through a particularly challenging piece of music during my son's screen time. Our set-up is organic, fun and flexible.
And now, I’m bringing this relational and accommodating approach into homes all over the world with my Busy Kids Do Piano program.
"If you aren't enrolling your children (or yourself!) into piano lessons because (1) you don't have the time and (2) you don't have the money, YOU NEED TO TAKE A LOOK AT BUSY MOMS (& KIDS) DO PIANO!!! I almost feel like I'm in a dream and slightly worried someone will pinch me soon and wake me from this amazing resource! Not only do the online courses allow you to go at your own pace AND let your child rewatch/relearn any section they are having difficulty with, but they are at a FRACTION of the cost of lessons elsewhere. Trust me. I've looked!"
"We have wanted to do piano lessons for our kids for ages but thought we would never be able to afford it with 4 kids until I found this program. My 5, 7 and 10 year old have been doing this program and they love it. The videos are well made and easy for them to understand and follow and I love that the printable worksheets have a little tick off section for the parents. The kids can progress at their own pace and it is great that I can watch the video with them and provide help when needed. Thanks so much for making a great course accessible and affordable."

Sometimes we put things off for a more "convenient time". (I find that when I do that...there isn't really ever a more convenient time.)
"Carly has a passion for music that is impressive. Whether it’s working with students in her piano studio, playing in the pit for a musical, recording holiday music or playing in a worship service, Carly gets the most out of each opportunity. I’ve worked with Carly on many different occasions and I’m continually amazed at her level of musicianship. She is an accomplished musician and is always well prepared.
Carly’s piano students adore her. My two daughters benefited greatly from their piano instruction with Carly. She has a delightful personality and a very special knack for sharing the gift of music."
Band Director, Glen Hills Middle School
What if I'm not ready to purchase during this 5-day private enrollment period?
No problem! I open up for public enrollment 3 times per year (January, May, September). While you will lose the 20% off discount if you don't purchase during this window, you are welcome to join the waitlist and enroll whenever public enrollment is open.
Can I Use This Course for Siblings? Absolutely! One membership can be utilized for your entire household. If you’d like to set up individual logins with individual progress trackers for each child, there is a $5/month additional charge per account within the same household.
Do I Need to Know How to Play The Piano in Order to Help My Child Through This Course? NOPE! Because of the nature of the course, you will be able to learn concepts along with your child, and I’ve created lots of supportive materials to help you oversee your child’s progress. If you watch the videos with your child, you will learn all the new concepts along with him. At the end of each lesson’s materials is a PARENT CHECKLIST to help you ensure your child is ready to progress to the next lesson. I’ve also created a Parent Guide, with specific notes, practice suggestions and things to watch for that correspond with every lesson.
Does My Child Need a Fancy Piano For Practicing? Fancy pianos are fun to play on, but definitely not required in order to move through this course. A keyboard or digital piano with weighted keys is perfectly fine to get started!
Do I Have To Purchase Books for My Child to Take The Lessons? Your subscription includes all the pages of music, theory and bonus materials — everything your child will need to complete the lessons in the course. The only additional material I might suggest (besides a piano, of course) would be a rhythm instrument, such as a tambourine, drum, triangle or wood block.
Will I Have Access To You as My Piano Instructor? Yes! I am active on the comments within each module and on our members-only Facebook group on weekdays to give feedback and offer additional tips and value. I also do montly livecasts for members.
What if My Student Has Had Previous Lessons? No problem! We can make sure your student finds a good starting point within my program. The members’ dashboard includes a brief student assessment to help gauge which level is appropriate for your student. You can also e-mail me with specific questions regarding previous methods and experience so that we can tailor the program to meet your student’s needs.
Any Contracts or Commitments? Nope. You can upgrade or cancel your account anytime and for any reason. If you cancel before the end of the billing period, you'll retain access until that period is over.
