The best piano teacher my daughter has ever had. She took from Michael while he was at Pladdot music in Statesboro, GA. He was a very engaging teacher and was able to instill a lot of confidence in my daughter as a pianist. My daughter says it like this..."He never let me believe I couldn't do a song piece I liked no matter how difficult it was. He was patient to see me through until I mastered it. He also challenged me beyond what I thought was possible." Our only regret was that he had to move away:(
Michael taught our granddaughter Voice, but also coached her in onstage presentation getting her prepared for Jr. Beta Special Talent. Great coach!
I took Professor Michael P's "Intoduction to Music Technology" class during my first semester of college. This man is extremely patient and helpful because I am not always the best student when it comes to technology. I had a habit of accidentally deleting my work every class and he was always calm and encouraging when he helped me recover the information. He had an amazing way of connecting to the students. He made me feel welcomed and unafraid to participate in class when I was just a shy freshmen in one of my first classes in college. Not only is he welcoming, but he also has a great way of breaking down complicated concepts so that we would be able to understand. I think connecting and communication are the two biggest components to a good teacher and Professor Michael P certainly has both skills and demonstrated them to my entire class. Since my intro class, I have used the knowledge he has taught me in my every day life as a musician.
I took Michael's Music Technology class in 2016 at Georgia Southern. This class was required for my major, but I was not looking forward to taking it, for I have always had trouble with technology and I didn't think that I would be interested in the subject. I expressed my concerns to Michael and he was very supportive and encouraged me to communicate with him throughout the course for help whenever I needed it. Though I was nervous about the class, it ended up being one of my favorite classes. Though the content was difficult, Michael created such an interactive, fun, and approachable learning environment. Whenever I had any difficulties, he would work with me until I understood, and he never lost his patience. I learned so much in this class, and though I was concerned that I wouldn't do well, I ended up making an A. Michael truly is a phenomenal teacher, for he is very encouraging and positive, and promotes learning in fun ways. I am very fortunate to have been able to learn under such a great musician and teacher.
Michael is a wonderful teacher! My daughter loved her piano and voice lessons with him. He is very patient and works great with young children.
Michael is awesome! I started playing the piano last year, by takeing lessons with Michael. I was 22, which is not the ideal age to be starting, but Michael was super patient, understanding and explained things in a simple way. He can teach any age because he's an all around great teacher, and truly cares about your understanding of music while still keeping it fun. You wouldn't want start your music journey with anyone else, he's one of the greats !
Select all the days/times the student would be available to start lessons. Selecting "3pm - 7pm" means the student can start as early as 3pm or start as late as 7pm. It is important that you select as many days and the widest window of start times for each day as possible. That will help us make a match with one of our teachers.Ok
Are you sure that's your only availability? The more availability you easier it will be to arrange a teacher for you.
