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. Alicia Kahlek Lakeville MN My son Julian says: I really like learning songs that my teacher writes for me and now I know how to add chords to the melody.
Carolyn has been very creative as she provides music opportunities for my husband with special needs. He enjoys every lesson because Carolyn finds ways to enable him to feel successful. I appreciate Carolyn’s flexibility both in her scheduling and in her approach to teaching. She works hard to meet the needs of her students.
Carolyn has been teaching my son piano lessons for the last year and a half and it has been an excellent experience for my son. Carolyn has shown great patience in working with the kids during their lessons and at their recitals. She is very knowledgeable in her field and has challenged my son to improve his piano skills. He has done very well with her guidance and expertise and my family is very satisfied in working with Carolyn.
I have referred piano students to Carolyn when they have reached a level of study that requires her level of expertise. I will continue to do so without hesitation.
Carolyn is an accomplished pianist whose talent and years of experience coupled with her well tuned teaching ability make for an excellent piano instructor.
Carolyn taught my disabled daughter piano lessons for several years. She was patient, supportive and a great teacher. My daughter enjoyed her lessons and enjoyed working with Carolyn. I hightly recommend her.
Carolyn is a person committed to success of her students. She enjoys her work and loves to work with people in music.
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.
Carolyn has been a very good piano teacher for our son, and he seems to be learning quite well with her methods and under her teaching. She is an educated and accomplished pianist. Jeff & Colleen Paul
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!

My daughter began her lessons with Mrs. Reisinger June of 2006 when she was just 5 years old. Now six years later, she still enjoys her lessons as much as ever if not more. Carolyn has taught her so much and so well that now one of her favorite hobbies is listening to a song on the radio and then trying to play it on the piano. Carolyn works with her students on NFMC and MMTA , piano recitals and those are wonderful experiences and confidence builders for the student. Carolyn is kind and patient which has really helped my daughter enjoy and stick to her lessons.
As a fifty-something beginning piano student I was fortunate to find Carolyn to teach me how to play. Besides being a gifted pianist, she is a very positive and encouraging instructor who inspires me to work hard while enjoying it. Over the course of four years she has taught me how to play a wide variety of music including classical, jazz, blues, and pop. To further my musical development, she has encouraged me to set longer term goals by participating in the Minnesota Music Teachers Association Music Theory and Piano Examinations Programs. Carolyn is everything one could ask for in a piano teacher and she has my highest recommendation! • 5/5 stars April 20, 2012
Carolyn has been very responsive and professional throughout this process. In spite of having many other piano instructors on your list, she was one of only three who responded. She also did so in a way that was respectful of my individual situation and I feel like I’m getting my particular needs addressed. I’m just having my second lesson with her tomorrow, but so far am very pleased. • 5/5 stars April 20, 2012
Carolyn Reisinger teaches two of my children and does a wonderful job. My kids are loving piano lessons and learning fast! She is very professional on what she does, still a very kind and loving teacher. I would recommend her over and over again! • 4/5 stars May 30, 2012
My son, Austin, has been going to piano lessons for over 10 years. We recently switched to Reisinger and are very pleased with the results! Carolyn has taught my son quite a bit in just 6 months and is helping him get ready for college! I would recommend her for any level of lessons. • 5/5 stars March 21, 2013
Great piano teacher. Carolyn keeps older students motivated by letting them pick current songs to learn and perform at recitals. Carolyn was very helpful in scheduling my daughter’s lessons around her participation in high school swimming and nordic skiing. She understood that my daughter wanted to continue playing piano but was having some issues with time constraints. My daughter started lessons with another teacher and transferred to Carolyn during middle school. She stated she probably would have quit piano if not for switching to Carolyn. • 5/5 stars March 21, 2013
Carolyn teaches both my son and myself. She is very good with kids and adults. She lets you move at your own pace, but she also keeps you motivated and moving forward. • 5/5 stars March 21, 2013
She is very nice and respects the children • 5/5 stars March 22, 2013
I just started my piano lessons about 4 months ago and I have been very impressed with how much I am learning. Carolyn has an extensive music background and she is so friendly and comfortable to work with. I highly recommend her as a piano teacher. She stretches you to go beyond your comfort zone with music that I truly enjoy playing. I am learning so much about reading music and music theory. She does not overload you but reviews bits and pieces as they fall into place with the pieces you practice. I can’t believe how much I am learning. I am very pleased. • 5/5 stars March 22, 2013
Great teacher makes learning easy and fun. I recommend highly • 5/5 stars March 24, 2013
