Letter from Dan

 

Thank you for allowing me to introduce myself.  At first, my students gain a foundation in classical technique.  But students may, if they wish, branch out into various styles while furthering their knowledge in the classical idiom.  

A graduate of two of the top conservatories in the world and also a parent, I am enthusiastic we can create a superior learning environment.  I have a quite creative approach to piano teaching.  Student recitals frequently include student compositions.

I am eager to share the success I have had teaching in my private studio!  Please contact me at your earliest convenience regarding piano lessons.  The youngest ages I start lessons with are around 6.5 or 7.  Adult students accepted by audition.  

 

   Sincerely,

"We needed to tell you how much we admire your gentle sense
    of humour, your way of putting [our son] at ease...your gentle, light enthusiasm
    is communicative, convincing and infectious..."
