Craig Coffman’s background includes 30 years of private piano instruction experience as well as experience as a professional pianist and music director. He has served as music director at a number of different churches throughout the Twin Cities and also the Phoenix metro area.
In 1993 he began teaching his “Instant Piano” classes. Over 10,000 people have attended these classes over the last 10 years. Now he is beginning to teach in other states -Wisconsin, Iowa, Texas, New Mexico and Arizona and Pennsylvania, just to name a few.
He has plans to expand to other states as well. His “Instant Piano” class has also been taught for Hosanna Integrity Music at their popular worship conferences and in 2002 he traveled to South Africa to teach a class for a church near Johannesburg.
Craig considers it his personal mission to make piano playing possible for as many people as he can reach. The goal is for people to have fun and experience the joy of music firsthand. Craig is part of a national network of teachers who teach the “Instant Piano” class nationwide. These classes are held at colleges, community education centers, senior centers, churches, retirement communities and just about anywhere people will listen.
