For beginners we will begin by learning the simple/core chords that are most frequently found in popular songs. Upon learning the chords we will move onto transitioning between chords and learn some basic tunes and simple strumming patterns. After that we will begin with more advanced chords which will allow you the chance to play a much larger variety of songs. Once those chords have been mastered students will begin to learn more advanced strumming patterns and transitions between chords, along with how to read sheet music and tablature.

Amazing teacher. Been trying to teach myself piano for a little over a year but i realized that i needed to get a teacher. I saw Caleb’s profile and saw that he was a Jazz musician and a trumpet player. I used to play trumpet and since i wanted to learn to improvise eventually i knew Caleb was my guy. So far the lessons have been extraordinary. Definitely feeling good about my direction. The problem I used to have with the trumpet was that i couldn’t play without sheet music. If you want to be able to improvise on an instrument you need a teacher to teach you how to do just that. If this is something you want, then Caleb will get you there on Piano and Trumpet I am sure.

Very good lesson. I am an older Lerner and want to go as far as I can in leaning trumpet. First lesson was great. Thanks Caleb

My 10 year old daughter studied with Margaret this year. Margaret is unfailingly patient and encouraging. She has a wealth of knowledge about music theory, and conveys the information in a way that makes it seem easy. She was great about tailoring the lessons to fit my daughter’s interests, strengths, and needs.
Devin
I took harp lessons with Margaret for 3 years and would have continued if I hadn't relocated to a different city. Margaret helped me drastically improve my technique with etudes and advice. She is great at explaining what changes need to be made to achieve a more accurate technique, and her musical suggestions really changed the way I think about preparing pieces and took my performance skills to a new level. She's honest, clear, and really fun to work with. I always looked forward to our lessons because she has a way of making even tricky, difficult pieces fun to work on.

"Three of our children have taken piano lessons from Carolyn. Our oldest son, who has graduated from college, still plays daily. Our other two sons are current students; both began lessons in early grade school.

Mrs. Calahan is patient, kind, and affectionate with her students. She shows a keen interest in encouraging them to succeed, while tolerating their occasional quirks. Our kids have had the opportunity to play classical pieces, jazz, ragtime, show tunes, and popular music. Their piano playing abilities have progressed steadily under Mrs. Calahan's instruction and her unintimidating approach has allowed them to develop an ever-increasing appreciation for music. We are lucky to have found her!"
