Piano · In studio

We found Miss Doe via the Dutchess Community College brochure and what a blessing it has been! In 2015 I enrolled my then 5 year old daughter in her first year of piano with Katie and within a few lessons she was already playing "Hot Cross Buns" by heart. At 6 she can now read music, identify keys and play a variety of songs. I'm almost nervous to tell everyone how wonderful Katie has been in fear that she'll book up...we want to keep her all to ourselves! :) She is patient, sweet, knowledgeable and talented. I'd highly recommend her to anyone. We look forward to returning to her classroom in 2017.
