"Jean-Paul has an incredibly unique approach to teaching. I have never seen a music teacher pay such close attention to a student’s reactions to music and adjust the lesson plans so mindfully and intentionally. I have spent many hours eavesdropping during my son’s lessons over the years, and there is no doubt in my mind that Oliver’s self-confidence, his improvement with focus at school, and the joy and humor with which he approaches his own musicality are a result of his studies with Jean-Paul. I love hearing the end of each piano lesson, when the two of them sit on the bench and improvise blues together. Jean-Paul will call out which key to play and they will riff off each other for 10 minutes and really get into a groove. He is an incredible teacher, gifted in the art of transmitting the joy of music to each of his students. Can’t say enough good things! Jean-Paul is a music whisperer!"
