“Carolyn is a highly sought after piano teacher. I highly recommend her for anyone interested in having a motivational musical experience for their child. She is a gifted pianist herself but that’s not what makes her a excellent piano teacher. It’s her love of children and her love of teaching piano that makes her so popular in Dakota County. Since every piano student wants to quit at one point or another, when this happens, just let Carolyn know and she will creatively turn your student’s motivation around. She truly has a gift in teaching kids a lifelong skill that has so many physical and emotional benefits. Call her today!” Beth Remarcke Lakeville MN

My 5-year old son has been taking lessons with Carolyn for about 5 months now. She genuinely takes interest in his progress and he enjoys the class. Though my son was not interested at the start his interest has grown over time. As a parent with a young child I have to follow up diligently at home. It might be helpful to provide resources for me so I can help him. If I didn’t have a musical background it would be very difficult.

My 11 year old son has been taking piano lessons with Carolyn for almost 3 years. Carolyn is an absolutely a wonderful teacher. She hand picks all the music so it suits the student’s level and interests.

It is very motivating to my son because he has a learning disability with how he processes information. Carolyn helps him understand how to read music by playing music computer games and board games which keeps him interested in playing the piano. Since taking piano lessons with Carolyn my son’s confidence has soared and he can’t wait to attend his next lesson. Carolyn has a unique gift for teaching children how to play the piano and I would recommend her as a piano teacher to anyone. She is the best!!

Carolyn started lessons with my 5 year old daughter this past fall and my daughter (and us) are loving it! My daughter has learned and memorized songs and is confident to share with anyone that will listen. Carolyn is patient, encouraging and flexible. Our daughter is learning hand position, writing and reading music from different age appropriate tools. We are happy we found her and excited to continue working with her!

I just started my piano lessons about 4 months ago and I have been very impressed with how much I am learning. Carolyn has an extensive music background and she is so friendly and comfortable to work with. I highly recommend her as a piano teacher. She stretches you to go beyond your comfort zone with music that I truly enjoy playing. I am learning so much about reading music and music theory. She does not overload you but reviews bits and pieces as they fall into place with the pieces you practice. I can’t believe how much I am learning. I am very pleased.

Carolyn teaches both my son and myself. She is very good with kids and adults. She lets you move at your own pace, but she also keeps you motivated and moving forward.

Great piano teacher. Carolyn keeps older students motivated by letting them pick current songs to learn and perform at recitals. Carolyn was very helpful in scheduling my daughter’s lessons around her participation in high school swimming and nordic skiing. She understood that my daughter wanted to continue playing piano but was having some issues with time constraints. My daughter started lessons with another teacher and transferred to Carolyn during middle school. She stated she probably would have quit piano if not for switching to Carolyn.

My son, Austin, has been going to piano lessons for over 10 years. We recently switched to Reisinger and are very pleased with the results! Carolyn has taught my son quite a bit in just 6 months and is helping him get ready for college! I would recommend her for any level of lessons.

Carolyn Reisinger teaches two of my children and does a wonderful job. My kids are loving piano lessons and learning fast! She is very professional on what she does, still a very kind and loving teacher. I would recommend her over and over again!

Carolyn has been very responsive and professional throughout this process. In spite of having many other piano instructors on your list, she was one of only three who responded. She also did so in a way that was respectful of my individual situation and I feel like I’m getting my particular needs addressed. I’m just having my second lesson with her tomorrow, but so far am very pleased.

As a fifty-something beginning piano student I was fortunate to find Carolyn to teach me how to play. Besides being a gifted pianist, she is a very positive and encouraging instructor who inspires me to work hard while enjoying it. Over the course of four years she has taught me how to play a wide variety of music including classical, jazz, blues, and pop. To further my musical development, she has encouraged me to set longer term goals by participating in the Minnesota Music Teachers Association Music Theory and Piano Examinations Programs. Carolyn is everything one could ask for in a piano teacher and she has my highest recommendation!

My daughter began her lessons with Mrs. Reisinger June of 2006 when she was just 5 years old. Now six years later, she still enjoys her lessons as much as ever if not more. Carolyn has taught her so much and so well that now one of her favorite hobbies is listening to a song on the radio and then trying to play it on the piano. Carolyn works with her students on NFMC and MMTA , piano recitals and those are wonderful experiences and confidence builders for the student. Carolyn is kind and patient which has really helped my daughter enjoy and stick to her lessons.
