Kathy Truman's piano clinic was overflowing with technique, creativity and talent, much like Kathy herself! My mind was opened to a whole new concept of playing music. Before the class I approached practicing the piano like I approached exercise, with the hope of a reward somewhere in the future. The second I sat down to play after Kathy's class, I began to play like an artist . . . with a sense of flow and connection to the piano that I had never had before. I now understand musical mechanics as well as the artistry. Kathy is a brilliant musician who shines her light on all of us.

I love how Kathy gives simple music depth and breadth. I love her music and I love her full sound.

Emly Harvey 

I had taken piano lessons most of my childhood, and considered myself an average pianist that had gotten rusty from not playing for years. I was taught piano by four teachers, my last teacher was a very accomplished and well-known teacher that you had to audition to be accepted as her student. Since I feel strongly that learning music gives us a background that helps benefit our lives, I signed my daughter up for lessons from Kathy when she was eight years old. I would sit down with my daughter to help her practice; and I found I was learning so much more about music than I had ever been taught. I became so excited about what Kathy was teaching my daughter, that I signed up for lessons for myself. The music theory lessons from Kathy developed another dimension to my piano education. Now I don't just play notes, I understand the theory behind the notes and this has helped me improve my performance!

Leona Goodsell 

Kathy is a very talented pianist. The piano sings when she plays. I have enjoyed learning from her. She has so much musical knowledge, which allows her to help you, no matter what level you are at. It is easy to understand with her teaching style. She is fun to learn from. I highly recommend her lessons!

Kerstin Beach 

I have taken close to 12 years of music training, mostly on the piano. Although I read music well and can play on an advanced level, I never completely understood the structure of music, chords and theory until I took Kathy Truman's workshops. The knowledge that she shared is very practical and can be applied to enhance what I already learned. However, better than that, it has answered many of the questions I had regarding arranging music and has opened a whole new world of creativity for me including composition and arranging music! My ability to sightread and improvise has improved a great deal since studying with Kathy. I will continue to study the fundamentals I have learned from her and only wish I had been taught like this in my early years. I highly recommend this course to anyone who desires to improve their performance and learn new techniques.
