We believe everyone has their own unique musical voice, 
and we exist to unlock it.Passion Studios is a piano studio located in Uptown Ankeny. Our playing-based approach through the Simply Music method has students learning in 2-3 months what takes traditional lessons 2+ years to learn, fueling a passion and joy for music. 

Interactive and immersive shared lessons fosters communication and expression through the piano. Paired with a constantly expanding, diverse repertoire and music artist spotlight at the beginning of lessons each week, every student experiences a unique sense of discovery, accomplishment and companionship.

Gabrielle Krieger is a Licensed Simply Music teacher with 17 years of piano experience. After taking traditional, classical lessons since age 6, she began the journey of creative self expression and taught herself accompaniment, chording and improvisation. In 2013 she joined the Des Moines based band Like Tides. She played keyboard and synth, wrote original pieces and shared the stage with globally successful bands. She obtained her Simply Music license after years of eyeing the program and established Passion Studios in December of 2014.

One of her life's goals is to culturally redefine what it means to be musical, enabling individuals to cast off the pressure to fit the mould and be musically self-expressive.
