"David has taught my children, ages 13 and 16, piano for 3 years. Both of them started piano before they were 5 years old, but they are very different. My older son really enjoys classical and has recently been exploring jazz. My younger daughter is more of a dabbler. David has successfully kept their interest and enthusiasm for piano, and for music as a whole. For my son, he has focused a lot on technique and music theory. For my daughter, he has made lessons fun while still making sure that she learns the fundamentals that she doesnt enjoy as much (like scales). He was flexible enough to teach her the basics of guitar when she expressed an interest.
Both children have blossomed under Davids tutelage. Perhaps more importantly, both continue lessons because they want to continue rather than parental pressure. Davids personable and gentle teaching style makes him an easy person for kids and adults to learn from; he is an excellent teacher!
