Carolyn is a great piano teacher because she has helped my son learn technique while encouraging his particular musical interests. Carolyn supports my son’s interest in learning his favorite songs, but also gives him challenging pieces. His skills and interest in piano lessons have progressed beyond my expectations.

“Carolyn Resinger is one of the most gifted teachers and performers ive seen. Her passion and musicality is something everybody must see and experience. Not only is she one of the best in her field, she is a pleasure to work with…. i highly recommend her for a teacher or performer…. she wont let you down…..




Lakeville, MN

“Carolyn is a highly sought after piano teacher. I highly recommend her for anyone interested in having a motivational musical experience for their child. She is a gifted pianist herself but that’s not what makes her a excellent piano teacher. It’s her love of children and her love of teaching piano that makes her so popular in Dakota County. Since every piano student wants to quit at one point or another, when this happens, just let Carolyn know and she will creatively turn your student’s motivation around. She truly has a gift in teaching kids a lifelong skill that has so many physical and emotional benefits. Call her today!”




Lakeville, MN

“Carolyn has been a great piano instructor for my children. She does a great job relating to the kids and keeps them highly motivated by teaching them with music the kids select. She is very flexible when it comes to scheduling which is great when your children are involved with other activities. Over the last couple of years, I have seen tremendous improvement with my children’s piano playing which is a great tribute to Carolyn and her teaching skills. If you have a child which is interested in learning or enhancing their piano skills, I would highly recommend Carloyn as an instructor. “
