Over the years, KC & Friends has taught hundreds of kids to play, read, and write music. Using fantastical stories and lovable characters from our innovative comic book series, we engage students from day one. We want to share The Adventures of KC & Friends with even more aspiring students and show them how to laugh, learn, and love to play the piano!
KC & Friends is all about teaching kids how to read music and play the piano with proper technique in the easiest, funniest way we know how. We tell stories and kids learn. We laugh, they laugh, and they learn some more. We change the story, add a challenge, and they create their own music which in turn helps them learn more. Eventually, we show them “real” music and they look at it and say “I get it” and play the song. It’s fun, it's effective, kids love it, and we hope you will too.
Our stories teach kids in a fun and engaging way, and they learn a skill that is going to make their brains work better, their happiness meters increase, and their confidence levels expand. Being able to play the piano is an awesome gift to give someone and KC & Friends is in the giving mood. Let’s learn, play and laugh together!
We are all really nice, smart, inspired people who work really hard to help kids learn music throughout the Bay Area. We hire working musicians to teach kids to read music and play the piano with proper technique. We come to your home, and teach at a level and pace that will work for each student in their own environment. We support each other when teaching challenges arise and everyone is trained by KC to understand how developing brains and motor skills can best absorb this information. We actually like each other, and our work, and once you mix that in with the crazy amount of talent we all all have, you have a team of teachers who will give each student the best shot at learning music as possible. We can’t make you learn, but we can make learning as fun and easy as possible.
