Welcome to Let's Play Piano

My name is Nancy King and I have been teaching people of all ages to play piano for over 25 years. I have taught over 1000 people of all ages and abilities to enjoy playing!

It was while I was going to school in Toronto at York University for ethnomusicology (world music) that I decided I wanted to return to playing the piano. I hadn't played it in about 10 years and was really missing it. I found a wonderful teacher at the Conservatory in Toronto and I was back in love with it. This teacher changed my life and here I am, hundreds of student later, sharing iwth you my passion about playing piano.

I have my B.A. from York University where I studied anthropolgy and music, and my A.R.C.T. (a teaching certificate) from the Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto, and lots of experience teaching all ages and skill levels.)

I can prepare students for theory and piano exams BUT what I love most is teaching people the love of playing piano and the music they play.

When I was introduced to this awesome computer program, Piano Wizard, that helps people learn the piano, with regular piano lessons I was so excited.. I have been using it in my studio and the reults have been amazing! Our lessons are SO much fun. Learning to read music can be very tedious and challenging and this program takes those factors out of the process and the results are fun and exciting and very rewarding. Just click on the video on the left to see what I am talking about.
