    Dynamic and Results-Driven!

    Kristin Yost is a sought-after teacher, author and presenter based in Frisco, TX. She founded her music school, Centre for Musical Minds in 2008 with a vision for making music come to life for all ages, stages and genres of music. She's written two books on the business of piano teaching and taught Current Trends in Piano Pedagogy and Music Business at Southern Methodist University and Texas Women's University, respectively. Yost most recently created a video-streaming service for piano lessons (Musical Minds Online), wrote a method book with pop-style music for older beginners and is offering it all for free while we are all working through our new-normal.


    "The information that Ms. Yost was able to provide for me was empowering. I have never had another class or seminar in the music industry that succinctly hit on all of the points of starting or continuing in your career in the music business." - Melissa


    "Since day 1, Kristin has inspired and helped grow my son's love of music. I love that she encourages him to choose his favorite songs to learn and any books or sheet music is included in our tuition. The teaching staff is educated in not only music but teaching as well. Their bios are extensive!! This is truly a team of professionals. Search no more for someone to teach you or your child all that music can do!" - Cara

Through almost a decade of research and hundreds of students, Kristin has achieved a formula for success not only for her students, but also for herself. She emphasizes joy, creativity and perseverance with long-view goals that focus on each person as a collection of strengths.
