My 4 year old son is quite energetic. Another piano teacher tried to teach him before Peter and could not get my son to listen to him at all. That teacher told me that my son had no interest and that we needed to wait before having my son take lessons. Peter started teaching my son a few weeks later. He quickly developed a great rapport with my son. I was astounded when my son sat down and listened to Peter during the first lesson. Peter has remarkable patience and is a natural working with children. He knows when to follow the child's lead. My son is very interested in how the piano works, so Peter takes the time to teach him about this. He is able to use my son's interests (superheroes, Lego, Star Wars, etc.) to refocus him back to playing the piano. Between lessons, he brainstorms on how he can teach my son better. For example, my son was playing the notes, but not understanding rhythm, so Peter looked into it and came back the next week with a new plan which helped. My son looks forward to his lesson every week. When he hears the doorbell ring on lesson day, he exclaims, "Yay! Peter's here!"
Peter is friendly, enthusiastic and takes good control of the lesson.
My 6 year old and 8 year old absolutely love Peter. He is absolutely patient and loves what he does. I would highly recommend him.
Peter is a great teacher! My 6-year old son looks forward to his lessons each week and Peter makes their lesson really fun.
To date, Peter has been an exceptional and talented piano teacher for our 8 yr old. We're thoroughly impressed by his temperament, patience and obvious musical abilities. I hope and expect that his continuing tutelage with our daughter will lead to great advances in her musical skills. RB
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.
