If you are looking for a great piano teacher, look no further. Cathy Baldwin brings her music education, experience, talent and enthusiasm to each lesson. She encourages even the beginner to learn simple songs quickly, leading them into more difficult pieces, enthusiastically. She addresses several topics, simultaneously, such as note recognition, counting, and theory. Books she’s written to address many topics in piano are very helpful.
She maintains student interest by letting them choose their favorite song to learn to play. Creativity is seen in her students own songs being played and recorded. She enlightens each student’s awareness of his/her abilities, building on their self-confidence. Her commitment to student success is exceptional.

We are so lucky to have found Cathy to teach our son music. He started lessons with no experience in guitar at 15 years old and he has thrived under her teaching. Lessons were our idea as parents and he has taken to Cathy so much he is now bringing song ideas to her. She has found him the sheet music for those songs so he can learn songs he’s most interested in. She’s very patient, encouraging, kind and reasonably priced. We couldn’t ask for a better teacher for our son.
Thank you for helping Keat so much!

Ms. Cathy is a pleasure to work with. From a parent’s point of view, she is professional and well organized as well as innovative. With my child, she is fun, yet truly cares that the kiddos are learning. The incentives to keep kids motivated are so sweet. Ms. Cathy could just complete the lesson and send us on our way, but she goes above and beyond while building an everlasting relationship with families. No doubt you will earn a new friend!

My 9 year old started piano lessons with Ms. Cathy at the beginning of third grade this year. We were actually referred by another student and friend’s parents. We could not have gotten a better referral!
Ms. Cathy’s experienced and teaching techniques are remarkable. Our son is growing as an artist by leaps and bounds. This is due, in great part to Cathy’s authentic lessons and attention to detail.
Of course our son’s growth is important. However, we are certain that his growth is directly related to his receptivity to Ms. Cathy’s methods and patience. Both our son and ourselves look forward to a long learning relationship with DaCat Music.
I can only say extremely positive things about Cathy regarding voice and piano instruction! She is patient and positive and smart and talented. But it takes a REAL TEACHER to share this with a student and have them respond. The discovery of her business has been a true blessing to our family!

It has been an outstanding experience in every way!

Cathy Baldwin is your gal! My 10 yr old started taking lessons with Cathy in June and we are both very, very pleased with the instruction she provides. She is informative, educating, motivating/encouraging, and patient. Before I moved to GP my son had two other music teachers who he didn’t quite have a liking for and so he was losing interest/focus in music. But, with Cathy, it’s a different story. We love her super laid back positive vibes and that’s what ultimately keeps us looking forward to his next lesson!

My daughter has been going to Cathy for about 3 months now for piano lessons and has picked up so fast and it’s all thanks to Cathy! She is patient, kind and most of all keeps it fun for the kids. She also teaches guitar. I highly recommend and trust Cathy! Please keep her in mind for your music lessons needs. Also another plus, she is so great to communicate with! This is so important to me as a working mom, there is no delay with her, she is on it! Email or phone, she is so quick to get me an answer. Thank you!

If anyone is looking for piano or guitar lessons, I highly recommend that you contact email@example.com. She is located near Robinson and Bardin. My 9 year old daughter has had only 3 lessons and is already playing songs on her own. She is wonderful with children and makes learning so much fun! She lets my daughter choose her favorite artist’s (Taylor Swift) songs and makes piano so exciting for her! If you or someone you know is interested in lessons, please send her an email – you will not be disappointed!!

I have worked with Cathy on songs I have written on more than one occasion. She has been very helpful offering insight and suggestions that have helped me identify strengths and pull ideas from one spot to further build another. I enjoy working with Cathy and look forward to future success with DaCat Publishing.

Cathy Baldwin of DaCat Music has done an outstanding job of assisting me with the “ins and outs” of the music publishing business. Her expertise in helping me get my music out there has been invaluable. Not to mention her keen insight into the elements that make a song better and more marketable.

If any former piano student can say that he or she is not only positively influenced, but also financially benefiting from lessons from a piano teacher more than two decades forward, that piano teacher is the one from whom any student should take lessons. Cathy Baldwin, with her upbeat and encouraging personality, was very attentive to every aspect of my development as a young musician at the age of 13.
The challenge of teaching a student who had begun a few years earlier playing by ear was one that Cathy embraced with a comprehensive interest in balancing my creative traits with a focus in learning and implementing the fundamentals of piano performance, practice and theory. She has worked with various age levels over many years and has proven to be outstanding at customizing an individual curriculum towards the present skill set of any given student at the onset of becoming his or her teacher. I would highly recommend Cathy as a piano teacher for anyone, at any level.
