Alfredo is just 7 years old, and he was so excited. Arend did a great job, encouranging and reviewing and giving him information he could understand , so he was able to actually play what he was reading. I am the grandma and his parents were there. We all loved the teacher and the lesson. Great Job Arend.
When we left and were walking to the car, Alfredo was on cloud nine, dancing and posing. Super excited to continue classes with Arend.
