Very professional. Able to keep the attention of my seven-year-old for the whole half hour ! I think he'll make a lot of progress.

Mr Walker is outstanding! He is teaching both my kids trumpet and piano lessons for past 2 months. He is patient, kind as well as firm/gentle at the same time. My kids really like him and lessons are going very well. Thank you Mr. Walker!. We really appreciate you!.

Allan taught piano to my two children for over four years. He was always very kind and patient with each of them, teaching them the fundamentals first and then building on those skills with progressively more difficult pieces. The twice yearly recitals taught my children memorization skills and presentation poise. I would highly recommend Allan as a piano teacher!
