about me




Coffee required.

Hi! I’m Carly – the creator of Busy Moms Do Piano and the face you see in all those lesson videos.

I’ve been teaching piano for 16 years in all kinds of different settings — including classrooms, my home studio and facilities that serve kids with special needs.

Whenever I enroll a new student at my home studio, I always meet with their family first. So often, as I visit with the parents, I hear the same refrain…

“I wish I had learned to play the piano.”

or….another variation of the lament…

“I wish I had never quit piano lessons.”

It’s not unusual for a parent to enroll in lessons with me while their child is at school, in order to have the joy of learning piano alongside their child and also to be a help and partner for their child between lessons.

Often, however, a parent is busy with work, young children at home and other obligations.

Or there’s the added expense of investing $80-$100 per month to fulfill that wish of learning the piano…

And these compelling reasons put that dream on the back burner.

I began to wonder if there was a way to reach the parents of my piano students with a flexible and affordable program they could access online during their free time, without having to worry about commuting or keeping a regularly scheduled lesson appointment each week.

And so Busy Moms Do Piano was born.

A few months later, I also developed a companion program for children — Busy Kids Do Piano. Through these two online programs, I now have the ability to bring music lessons into the lives of children and adults all over the world.

I’m thrilled that you’re here — and that you have an interest in pursuing piano lessons for yourself. Take a look around my site, visit my blog for additional resources, and sign-up to have a free piano lesson from my course delivered to your inbox.

I’m excited about the community we’re creating here in the Busy Moms & Kids piano programs. I hope you’ll consider joining us for the journey!
