"My daughter is eight years old, and had been taking piano lessons for a year and a half before we found Pete. Historically she was very hard on herself if she made a mistake, she would cry, get frusturated, and give up. Pete changed all that. She took to him immediately. She was giggling through the lesson, even when she made a mistake (a minor miracle). She had a wonderful time and Pete was able to teach her more quickly because she was having fun. When he realized how quickly she was grasping what she was asked to play, he always had new things to show her and teach her, sometimes right off the top of his head. He was very supportive, adaptive, and engaging. I would recommend Pete to anyone looking for a piano teacher for their child. He is an outstanding instructor."
