“A patient, kind, and experienced teacher”

“Carla Pratt taught my daughter piano for six years. Carla is a patient, kind, and experienced teacher that I would recommend to anyone. Any student would be lucky to have her as a teacher.”

Terra Harvey, parent of a piano student

“Wonderful piano teacher”

“Carla is a wonderful piano teacher. I loved her teaching method; she provided quality instruction time along with a music learning lab and personal practice time during the lesson. She also used a reward system that worked very well for my son. Not only is her music experience and teaching method impressive, but she is a warm and kind teacher—my son always looked forward to his lessons with her.”

Jill Stott, parent

“Very patient and kind”

“I have known the Pratts for several years and have been impressed with their kindness and integrity.

“My son took piano lessons from Carla and although he didn’t love music he loved her and would practice not to improve but for her. He commented after every lesson how nice she was. She is very patient and kind with her students, we have had many music teachers over the years but Carla Pratt is our very favorite!!”

Kathie Ellsworth, parent of two piano students

“One of my anchor sopranos”

“I have hired Carla Pratt to sing on vocal recording sessions numerous times over the last 20 years. She is one of my anchor sopranos and I hate producing a session without her. If her teaching is up to her level of performance, a student can be in no better hands.”

Arlen L Card, music composer and producer, co-composer of “Joseph Smith: Prophet of the Restoration”

“All done in a patient and encouraging environment”

“We have had a number of our children take piano and/or voice lessons from Carla Pratt, co-founder of Prattland Music Adventures.  We found Mrs. Pratt’s instruction to be better than competent, apt for each student’s age, and all done in a patient and encouraging environment. Our children owe much of their current musical skills to Carla Pratt’s masterful teaching.”

Jennifer Card, parent

“She is amazing!”

“We were blessed to have Carla teach piano to all 5 of our children. She helped them connect with music through a variety of different means. She is amazing! Besides being an outstanding music teacher, she is an even better person. I loved that my children had the opportunity to spend time weekly with her for over 10 years!”

Steve Gardanier, parent of five piano students

“He is an excellent teacher!”

“I am so happy to hear that Dennis Pratt, one of my favorite teachers & mentors in music education from my youth, is opening a new private music school, Prattland Music Adventures in Lehi, UT. I know that all of the students that are fortunate enough to attend this school will feel of the passion Dennis has for music, his desire to see his students succeed, to learn to perform and to develop their talents. These students will be inspired to learn & share what they have learned for years to come. He is an excellent teacher!”

Megan Doxey Hunter, former flute student

“Mr. Pratt cared about each student”

“Dennis Pratt was my band teacher at Dixon Middle School. His love and passion for music and teaching were indisputable. He made learning music fun and accessible to everybody. At the same time, he maintained a disciplined environment with high expectations where students developed musical skill quickly and effectively in a way that is unmatched among all other music teachers that I have known. I especially appreciated the emphasis he placed on learning how to learn by developing good practice techniques and habits.

“Mr. Pratt cared about each student and was personally invested in our success. He always expected our very best and when we fell short, he was always nurturing and motivating.

“The things I learned from Mr. Pratt have been far reaching. I developed skills that enabled me to enjoy music beyond middle school. I also found that there was significant crossover to general school studies. I attribute much of my academic success to important learning skills and discipline I developed while under the tutelage of Mr. Pratt.

“I still occasionally find myself whistling ‘Bristol Bay Legend’, ‘Chesapeake Overture’, or ‘Of Pride and Celebration’ (songs we learned).”

Josh Gunn, former flute & jazz piano student

“Every student will get a first class music education”

“This is so exciting!!! Mr. Pratt was my band director at Dixon Middle School many moons ago. It was because of him and his amazing teaching that I decided in 8th grade to become a band teacher! I am now in my 14th year as a Junior High/High School Band Director in Arizona. I also credit him with knowing how to count any rhythm that I come across—thanks to those pesky flash cards. Every student will get a first class music education with Dennis Pratt! Try it out!”

Sarah (Jones) Meeks, former clarinet student, and current high school band director

“One of the best teachers I’ve ever had”

“Dennis Pratt is one of the best teachers I’ve ever had. He has a great love and knowledge of music and also a way of teaching that is fun and motivating! I had him as a teacher when I was young and also had the pleasure of working with him as an adult. I’m so excited he is opening his own music school because music teaching is his gift!”

Megan Williams Hinckley, former flute student
