In person, online, and hybrid lessons and classes begin September 20, 2021
When I first started teaching at MacPhail Center for Music in 2000, our slogan was,
"It's the music that matters."
I've always loved that phrase.
Welcome to the homepage for Cathy Smetana's piano studio at MacPhail Center for Music in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Cathy offers individual and group lessons for students of all ages and abilities, from young beginners to busy teens and adults.
Cathy also presents for piano teacher groups on topics such as performance anxiety and memorization, using pop music to teach music theory, successful lesson planning, and effective strategies for working with students who can't (or don't) practice as much as teachers might hope!
