Piano Lessons

I’ve dabbled with piano from my past and somehow a decade has passed with me forgetting almost everything I’ve learned. I’ve only had one lesson so far but I thought he covered a lot and explained things very thoroughly. I think with his method of teaching, I will gain more understanding and new relationship with music! I’ve decided to commit 1 hr every week with him until I feel comfortable enough to venture on my own (: happy to have met a great teacher.

Mr Cucchiara is a great teacher. His lessons are clear and easy to understand, but he also challenges me to improve. He’s very encouraging, which goes a long way I'm new. I’ve already recommended him to my friends. I look forward to learning more from him.
