Adam’s style of teaching is very encouraging, and fosters a love of piano and music in his students.
Adam is super patient with young children! My daughter loves to go to piano class and to practice at home. She has been able to play full songs since day one, which boosts her confidence.
Adam has been teaching my 10-year-old for a year now and it has gone great! He works with her to find current music that she’s interested in and this keeps her interested while pushing her to learn new techniques.
Adam has brought my son from ‘slow-to-warm’ to fully-engaged with his piano playing. By allowing my son to choose songs he wanted to play, then helping him understand it, he has encouraged him to practice without battles. His relaxed, calm, and good-humored approach has alleviated the stress of performance pressure. I am truly appreciative of Adam’s expertise and caring.
Adam has been a great piano instructor for our 9-year-old. Adam allows our son to pick the songs he wants to learn (versus just relying on standard classical music - although those are included too), and let him focus on learning via ear first before diving into sight reading music. Adam’s style of teaching is very encouraging, and fosters a love of piano and music in his students.
I have nothing but praise for Adam. Adam is patient, supportive and has a great teaching style which includes a balance of ear training, music theory, improvisation, and “fun” exercises. I was so impressed when on the first lesson Adam asked my son what music he liked and then together they worked out the notes to a pop song by ear, wrote it down, and used the song as the basis for future lesson exercises. This approach has kept my son engaged, interested and making progress. Adam is also reliable, on time, and thoroughly professional. I highly recommend Adam!
