    About MeContact Me
    KATE HANLEY / PIANO
    www.KateHanley.com

    For over two decades I have been teaching people of all ages to play their favorite songs on the piano. My hands on approach to piano playing is designed to help students enjoy making music right away! We learn music by listening first and reading notes after we are able to play a bit. It's really no different than leaning to speak, and MUCH more FUN than old-school, traditional piano lessons.
    My "Natural Approach" learning system was originally created for my own children over 23 years ago. Today "The Natural Approach" is more refined and effective and provides successful results to every student .
