"Kathy truly created a life-shaping difference for me. I began some simple piano lessons with her when I was ten, hungry to learn. Over the next eight years that ensued, Kathy opened a door for me into the world of music. Any student that takes up with her will not just learn to play a few simple tunes, but will be surprised to find themselves developing into a full-grown musician. Learning to play the piano involves far more than pressing a few keys, and Kathy makes sure every student understands that, no matter the age. She even gave herself the title of 'The Bear of Music Theory.' If you don't know what music theory is, don't worry. She'll pound it into your brain till it comes out your ears; it really will make you a better musician.
With more anecdotes, stories, and pieces of advice than I've ever seen in a person before or since, Kathy has an entirely unique method of teaching. Her lessons develop character, patience, and above all the desire to work hard. She has an ear for those who practice and those who don't, so one learns quickly to put in the effort between lessons.
As for myself, I've actually applied this skill to my education through high school as well. Staying committed to Kathy and my musical studies with her made me a more well-rounded student, and for that I graciously thank her. I will be going off to Miami University (Oxford, Ohio) this fall to study Music Composition. Without her, I would never have been the musician I am today, with dreams, goals, and plans for my life ahead of me. I strongly urge every soul interested in taking up the piano to begin studies with Kathy, because every student deserves to have that sparkle in their eye as I have had ever since my first lesson."- Robb, Former Student
"I was a student of Kathy Barry for about nine years. When I started, I could barely reach the keys! I started off learning simple scales and tunes. Kathy's teaching method emphasizes the importance of theory and the understanding of music. She doesn't just teach you to play the notes of a song, she teaches you to understand the music you're playing. This is crucial to be the best piano player that you can be. Learning the piano through Kathy taught me a lot about music, and gave me a skill that will stick with me for the rest of my life. It's like riding a bike, it stays with you.
The weekly piano lessons with Kathy were a significant part of my life. Even if I didn't realize it at the time, learning to play the piano properly with Kathy impacted who I am today.""- Ash, Former Student
