Who is 3 Minute Piano?

Veteran professional music lesson company, Homestyle Music, administrates and owns 3 Minute Piano.  Unless otherwise noted, professional instructional videos for piano are taught by Katie Hester.  Homestyle Music was established and licensed in Acworth, GA beginning in 2007. In 2009, it began to expand into neighboring cities.

Homestyle Music is a regional provider of excellent lessons in piano or guitar for individual students meeting with teachers in students' homes.  We also offer piano lessons, flute lessons, or guitar lessons in Acworth at our studio.  We offer piano lessons at our studio in Kennesaw.   In order to make professional music instruction more accessible and available to students, 3 Minute Piano was created.  Homestyle Music was developed out of a passion for sharing music with others.  The company believes music enriches a person's life beyond measure. The following is a list of benefits to studying music:

Concentration: The study of music demands that one focuses on reading, muscle coordination, timing, and aesthetics all at the same time. Therefore, music study also increases a student's ability to multitask.

Muscle Development:  The study of an instrument, or of voice, requires the use of finely tuned muscles. Musical instruments, in particular, help to develop better eye-hand coordination in the performer.

Social Interaction:  Students learn how to prepare for live performance.  There are life-long social opportunities to share music with others as students progress in their studies (bands, competitions, groups, etc.).
 
Accomplishment: It is absolutely rewarding when students realize how far they have progressed and that they can share music with others.  Homestyle Music  works with students to bring them to a place of success! 

Creativity and Self-Expression:  Homestyle Music believes that people are innately creative. The studies of piano, guitar, voice, or any musical instrument helps to harness creative abilities and bring out the best in students.

 
A happy student with teacher Katie Hester!
