“I have taught kindergarten through the eighth grades, general music, band and chorus over the past fifteen years. My daughter had the pleasure of taking private lessons from Karen Maison. The learning was not only creative, but also appealed to the child’s sense of play. Music teachers need this highly effective system that will be remembered by all types of learners, quickly.”

Jill Campbell
(Music Specialist, Dear Valley School District)

"The publication of Karen Maison’s carefully prepared volumes represents a fresh and exciting approach to the teaching of piano fundamentals. Teachers and beginning students alike will appreciate the ease of understanding, enjoyment and rapid progress that this unique series provides."

Paul Paige, Ph.D.
(Former Professor of Music, Grand Canyon University)

“The Maison System would be an asset to the music teacher who incorporates keyboard geography into her/his curriculum. Private piano teachers and group teaching such as Suzuki and Yamaha would be wise to consider the Maison System.”
