Lessons for Children

Are you looking for piano lessons for your child?

Charlotte Haertling and Brenda Meether are experienced piano teachers who get great results.

Charlotte Haertling

My wholehearted goal is to provide positive, fun and memorable experiences for students through individualized musical instruction. I aim for students to enjoy and look forward to every lesson, and to fall in love with the progression of their musical journey. My intention is to create a special and unique relationship with every student which is the anchor for musical growth, expression and success that occurs in the music studio and beyond.

I grew up playing piano and singing since I was a very young child. This love of music continued to progress into high school and college where I participated in musicals, plays, operas, choirs, and competitions. Entering college I knew I wanted to both perform and teach children, and became first person ever to graduate with a dual degree in Voice Performance and Music Education from the University of Colorado. Post-grad, I’ve been teaching elementary music in the Boulder area as well as teaching private voice and piano lessons. I also am a Cantor at Sacred Heart of Mary Church in Boulder where I lead and sing music for Mass, and sing for funerals and weddings.

In my free time you can find me trail-running, doing yoga, reading, or adventuring outside with my dogs.
