Our son has been taking lessons from Mr. Hession for about 4 years. From the beginning lessons, we noted and observed Mr. Hessions teaching style of how our sons was receptive to his instructions to us, a good rapport from instructor to student is very important.
We are extremely impressed and satisfied. Mr Hessions lesson plan includes the rotations of the music genres like bluegrass, jazz, classical, contemporary helps grow our sons interested in learning piano and also helps find and adapt his music skills. Mr Hession encourages improvisation which is amazing and in which we are so glad to see creativeness is important to us. He tailored his music piece selections to our sons progress and skills, the type of instructions we CAN only get from a very dynamic teacher and which we CANT get from computer software or from any piano books.
The recitals annually that Mr Hession organizes teach his students to play in front of a crowd, boost their confidence and make them more attentive to their pieces in daily practices. They know that they will play the pieces in front of a crowd.
We have seen clearly our sons tremendous improvement in his piano skills and techniques. Many people saw and heard our son playing piano in our churchs music concerts, school and other events were also very impressed and often talked with us about him.
Mr Hession is an amazing piano teacher. He met all of our expectations and more. I would highly recommend Mr Hession as a piano teacher and have recommended him to many of our closest friends.
