My daughter is 11 years old. She has been playing piano since she was 5. After one year of piano practice, it became apparent that it is her true passion. Since then she was studying under a wonderful piano teacher, who graduated from Juilliard. We met David when my daughter’s piano teacher decided to move to another state. He is a wonderful, totally committed, detailed educator. He has a very pleasant, polite personality, and is easy to relate to. My child loves having lessons with him. Since she is already playing Chopin Études and some more challenging pieces the lessons are very interesting and almost always touch on music theory topics. David would teach my daughter how to correct her posture, discuss the details in phrasing, show her how to practice effectively and much more. He sets the bar high, but is willing to give his best in order to bring the best in your child as a musician.
What’s most amazing about David as a piano teacher, is that he completely understands how your child feels as a student and can give ideas and tips based on how he felt when studying piano as a child and a young adult. That quality is very rare and made my daughter enjoy piano classes with David even more.
I would recommend David to anyone who loves music and would like to learn the instrument and to all of those who already do know how to play it well. David has a knowledge and expertise in music, is reliable and trustworthy and willing to listen to his student’s own ideas while working on their weaknesses. Piano is fun with David!
