Aside from being a phenomenal pianist and engineer/producer, C minor exhibits the 2 indispensable qualities of any great teacher, proficiency and patience. He understands that most students don't come equipped with his depth of knowledge and he is able to explain difficult concepts that any beginner can understand.
