As an adult intermediate level student, Jerimiah Owens approached me with grace, respect and an appreciation for who I was as a musician. He quickly assessed my abilities and had no pre-conceived ideas about how it should be . He tailored his approach to me, not a method, and was more than eager to engage me immediately in technique and musicality. I left each lesson feeling a sense of accomplishment and an eagerness to continue to improve my piano playing. He is personable, friendly, patient, knowledgeable, and punctual. Of course he is a top-notch professional musician in his own right, and knows how to communicate and share his knowledge and exceptional skills with ease and comfort. I was happy and honored to have worked with him, and ended my lessons only because of life changes that precluded us continuing. I recommend Jerimiah highly to anyone-beginner to advanced, youth to adult learner—he is a good communicator, teacher, and a good man.
