Welcome to Red Cloud Studio Where...


Everyone is musical.

Music is more than just music. 

You leave with more joy and confidence than when you walked in.


Hi, I'm Molly! I never planned to become a musician or a teacher... but after a winding road full of musical experiences (everything from singing background vocals for grammy winners to planning elementary school concerts) - I was pulled towards this work in a way that wouldn't let me go. After learning music in many different settings and using my background in psychology to guide my study of teaching, I opened Red Cloud Studio to be the kind of place I thought was missing from conventional options. They say you grow up to be an expert in the things you wish you would've known sooner.  So this is it! A place where students have freedom to be themselves, develop in the musical styles/skills they love, and learn to truly enjoy the process.

Scroll down to meet our team of Star teachers.

They are full of heart and soul and incredibly dedicated to their students! We're all here to help you become better piano players and singers. We're not just telling you what to do, we're giving you everything you need to think and perform like a musician. Our hope is that you'll find your voice and transform into the most creative, confident version of yourself! 

We are so happy you're here! If you have questions, please let me know!
