Here's what others have to say...

Creative, magnificent, so holistic and so enjoyable!

After not having a piano lesson for over 10 years, I found Linda Gould. What a treasure she is!! And her teaching methods are so creative, so magnificent, so holistic and so enjoyable; I have fallen in love with playing the piano again. Linda is the most creative teacher I ever had.

Amazing fun filled program for adults of every musical level....

I have taught voice/piano for over 30 years and have taught Play Piano Chords Today for over 10 years. I am impressed with Linda's creativity and thoughtful investment in forming this program.

PPCT is an amazing and fun filled program for adults of every musical level and ability. I thoroughly enjoy every class I teach as it inspires and stretches my teaching skills and is also so rewarding for the students. I especially love the 'ah ha' moments when the light goes on and a smile spreads over their face.

I also use the tools in my personal teaching as well - Play Piano Chords Today is a revolutionary resource to enhance any music teacher's Studio!

Barb - Teacher (piano & voice)

I'm beginning to see the patterns in music!

I had taken a number of years of 'classical' training in piano lessons and while I could play some pieces with a lot of practice, I did not really understand how music was made up and knew nothing of how to chord. I can now sight read and play almost any piece in the numerous 'Fake Books' and am beginning to see the 'patterns' in music.

BTW - I'm loving all those fake books I bought. My mom was down and we had a couple of sing-a- longs. I was so happy to be able to play for her!
