In West Kelowna I found Paulette, the creator of EZee Piano Systems© . This program has propelled my learning experience to the place where I feel comfort with the instrument. To learn with another student present gives me more confidence. I enjoy the element of surprise at each lesson when the next step propels me to be more secure to use both hands. EZee Piano is the part that I felt missing in my learning process with two years of the traditional method. At the tender age of "elder" to launch a calling in playing the piano for individual enjoyment is enhanced and personally more advantageous because of this technique. I find each lesson refreshes me and awakens a spark of excitement in this Great-Grandmother. Next!! Lorraine Robinson/Beazley" Westbank
I am proudly 82 yrs. old! I am satisfied with what I have learned so far. I like this method of learning as it is easy to read step by step. Many thanks Paulette. Walter Hall Kelowna
I am so excited to be taking EZee Piano Systems lessons.I have been trying for years to play piano but I could never coordinate my left hand. Now with this new system and my experienced teacher Leanne, I am thrilled with how quickly I can learn to play hands together. Cheryl P., Kelowna

EZee Piano Systems© has enabled me to check off a "want to learn piano" on my bucket list! I am about to complete the 4th session and I can say that it has been an amazing experience. For anyone considering taking music lessons, this is such a well thought out program, taught in an "EZee" format, that makes it so enjoyable. So all of you out there, don't think twice-first do it! I can't give enough praise to our wonderful teacher Amanda, except to say that she is the best. Thank you Amanda and Paulette.(A note, Yvonne a lady with no piano background is now reading out of a Grade 3 Royal Conservatory Book. Way to go Yvonne.) Yvonne - Armstrong. B.C.

Amanda has taught me so much in three months of lessons. I have more understanding of the timing and building chords. She has a gentle way to build confidence. Being a retired widow, having another thing of interest plus being constructive is a big deal to me. Love her and the music.

Having turned down an opportunity to take piano lessons as a child, I had come to accept the fact that I had missed out on ever playing the piano. Fortunately, I had learned, decades later, of the EZ play piano system and am now having a great time working with other seniors in a no-pressure environment and having a great time doing so.

I learned a lot about music and appreciate your teaching method. A great experience for me!
Bob Smith West Kelowna
This is a super system of teaching how to introduce one's fingers into music. I started singing solos and chorally when I was about five years old, and have kept it up all my life. I read and interpret vocal music well, but I never learned piano nor any instrument.
That has always been my great regret. Now, seventy-five years later, I thought I'd give your system a try. It's great. I am too old to become a "piano player" of course, but your method certainly opens up new musical vistas for me. I am learning to enjoy chording and playing with both hands. You teach fast but thoroughly, and make it lots of fun, singly or in a group. Who knows where it would have led if I'd started with your system many years ago!

As a singer, I have found the piano lessons very helpful in learning notes and chording. After a few lessons I understood the importance of counting and applying chords and notes to the song's words. Never too old to learn and this method makes it easier to progress than I thought possible. Very enjoyable! Sharon Currie, Kelowna
I look forward to my piano lesson, to see what new little tricks Paulette will teach me. Paulette is very enthusiastic and a pleasure to be around. Theresa Fougere, Kelowna
EZee Piano Systems© is a great way to promote music education with a quick start. I like the group setting as it means I can also learn from other students, be encouraged by them and the focus gets shared by all meaning it is less intimidating. This method encourages flexibility in playing so one can add one's own touch in performing a piece making it more enjoyable.
