I have been teaching piano since 1974 in New Jersey, Texas and North Carolina. I love sharing my passion for piano and my special gift is working with children ages 3-12. My home studio has recently added a music lab with online and DVD access to theory activities for use at each lesson, in addition to keyboard time and other hands on learning.
We use Wunkerkeys curriculum for students ages 3-5 and Piano Adventures curriculum for ages 6 and up.
I offer a free lesson and my regular lesson fee is $20 per 45 minute lesson, with 10% family discounts. Preschoolers have 30 minute lessons at $15 each.
Our website is pianoprogressionraleigh.mymusicstaff.com and our facebook page is pianoprogression/wunderkeys21.
Call or email to set up a get acquainted visit and a free lesson!
Ms. Plunkett made us feel welcome and comfortable. I like how she incorporates learning the basics with fun activities.
We cannot say enough wonderful things about Piano Progression Raleigh and Ms. Retta! My oldest daughter was originally taking piano lessons at one of the largest music studios in Wake Forest. She tried 3 different teachers during her time there. Not one of them took the time to really see who my daughter was, what her specific needs were in regards to learning, and didn't use positive reinforcement in their teaching. My daughter needed a teacher with patience and someone who approached teaching with love and kindness. Now both of my daughters take lessons with Ms. Retta. They love her, the music they are learning and Ms. Retta's teaching style. Ms. Retta took the time to build a solid foundation before moving on to harder lessons. She doesn't make my children feel bad if they didn't accomplish the goals she sets for them. She simply encourages them to do their best! We have been taking lessons with Ms. Retta since April 2015. Over the last 3 years, not only has Ms. Retta taught them piano, but also confidence and how to be proud of themselves! Ms. Retta is so much more than a "piano teacher" and I highly recommend her!
Retta is a great piano teacher. My daughter has learned so much from her first year and enjoys her lessons
I love that my children always enjoy coming to lessons.
