Piano Lessons

I offer easy, fun, playing-based piano lessons. It is my mission to help you discover the joy of music and unlock your musical potential.

Currently, I am an instructor for Cadek Conservatory of Music. All of my afternoon lessons are held at Cadek. Morning lessons are held at Concord Baptist Church.

Parents are usually expected to remain in the room for their child’s lesson, especially for younger students. This helps the parent to understand what is required of their student on a daily basis. In addition, due to our exceptional Student Home Materials, parents are able to learn right along with the student!

Join my studio today and embark on a musical journey that will last a lifetime.

  Individual Lessons

Beginner lessons will be held in 30 minute intervals, once a week. As a student progresses, they may move up to 45 minutes or a 1 hour lesson.

Summer Lessons

Summer lessons are typically a little different. I typically coordinate with parents to choose 4-6 dates throughout the summer that fits both of our schedules.

Piano Parties

Throughout the year, I will plan piano parties (group lessons) for students where they will play games that teach music theory, such as scales, rhythm, and composition. We usually also have students play a song(s) for each other, as well as work on duets, or recital etiquette.

Brianna Smith has been a great teacher for our 12 year-old daughter. She has been both an encouragement and inspiration for her to learn not only the basics of the piano, but to have fun with it....As a parent, I appreciate Brianna's flexibility with her practice schedule. Life seems to always happen and we often needed to reschedule. Brianna was always willing to work with us.

I have only been taking Simply Music for about a year and a half and have already accomplished so much. I have had other piano teachers, but nothing like Brianna. Brianna is a wonderful teacher. She is very helpful, patient, and definitely knows her piano. I'm SO glad to have her as my teacher.

Jack, student

Brianna is a wonderful teacher! Her technique for teaching piano is easy to follow and very helpful. She is easy to talk to, she listens well, and she is flexible. She's the best music teacher I've had!

Adam & Heidi, parents

Brianna Smith teaches piano with a kind, calm, professional, patient, and organized demeanor. With this perfect recipe, she has created piano loving students out of our two boys -- with our third little guy chomping at the bit to age into piano lessons as well! The Simply Music curriculum allows them to get right into the making of music without having to learn the notes first. We love the sound of music in our home, and Ms. Smith's philosophy of the 'value of music for emotional well being' is spot on.

Linda, grandparent

Brianna is a wonderful teacher for our's amazing how much she's taught her in just a few months...and the best part is that Ariana enjoys her lessons with Brianna and will practice! I highly recommend her and the Simply Music method.


Brianna is an excellent teacher with a patient, laid-back style. My daughter has become an accomplished pianist during her years under Brianna's teaching. I especially appreciate that she is willing and able to address her student's interests, talents, and goals rather than adhering strictly to a rigid 'formula' in her teaching.
