Ms. Carrie Steffen joined The Piano Cottage faculty in 2013.

Prior to joining The Piano Cottage, she taught music privately for five years.  


A graduate of Full Sail University, with a B.A. in Music Production, Carrie also studied music education at Grand Rapids Community College.


Currently she teaches piano and combination studies in piano/voice, piano/ukulele and piano/composition.  She is also an accomplished performing musician, music producer and composer.  Carrie sings, plays piano, mandolin, guitar, ukulele and hammered dulcimer.


Carrie's mother was also a piano instructor and she credits her mother for inspiring a love of music.  Others who played a key role in her journey to becoming a music educator include:  Mrs. Jane Greenfield and Dr. Kenneth Bos, DMA.

When she is not teaching, Carrie spends her spare time in singer/songwriter mode.  Listen to her original vocal/piano compositions on her Soundcloud, which is linked below.


"I was hoping to find a group of people who were as passionate about teaching music as I am. Being part of The Piano Cottage community is like a dream come true."
