Helpful Training!

I wish I had access to this podcast 20 years ago! I was trained in classical piano for 14 years, then asked to play piano for our church’s worship team as a young adult. I was never trained in chords in all my years of piano lessons. Our worship pastor tried to help train & guide me in this transition & learning curve, but he wasn’t a pianist. Morgan’s methodical and encouraging approach will help anyone gain confidence if you’re in a similar situation. Great podcast!

The best piano teacher ever!

Morgan is by far the most fun, engaging, inspiring, and innovative piano teacher I've ever seen. I don't even play piano, and yet I love this podcast! She connects with piano students of all ages. Morgan's stories of unique ways she's inspired kids who were reluctant learners, is nothing short of amazing... I'm sure parents just love her! I'll be listening to every episode... keep up the good work Morgan!
