Jeremy is a great instructor and he certainly knows what he is talking about. I play in a local band so we spend time going over the songs I am working on and he creates lessons and exercises based upon what I am having trouble with. He also always throws in some thoughts or ideas for me to think about to help me to become better. Having taken piano lessons with several different instructors for 5 years, I can confidently say he is indeed the best instructor ever.

Jeremy is very knowledgeable and he relates well to my son. He is very laid back and makes the lessons enjoyable by finding songs for my son to learn that are his style.

Peter is an outstanding instructor! He has a nice space for teaching and works to understand where the student is starting from - making sure to emphasize a base of fundamentals that will see you through for the rest of your piping career. I highly recommend him!

Peter is very patient and exceptionally knowledgeable. He is very analytical in his teaching. I am a new student (only a few lessons) and I am confident he will be able to provide the critical but positive instruction and encouragement that I need. His enthusiasm and passion for music is contagious. In fact, he gives detailed oral histories and music theory explanations related to the topic of the lesson. Most teachers boot you out when time is up - not Peter - he always finishes on the right note. Plus he has an adorable cat assistant, Rory, as a side kick.
