What can I say? He's a terrific piano instructor. He has a great way of explaining things in a way that I understand, and doesn't care if I have trouble sometimes, or when I haven't been able to practice much.

Floris is the best! I took lessons with him because I wanted to learn to some specific songs, and he helped me so much I can now learn almost any song by ear. He's really good at explaining complex concepts in a simple way. I have recommended him to a dear friend of mine and can honestly say he's great teacher.

Floris and I have been doing lessons together for 6 months. In that time I have learned a lot. I am really happy with my progress and can only imagine what I'll be able to play in another 6months, a year or even further down the road.

I can definitely recommend Floris as a teacher!

Floris is a great piano teacher. I had taken lessons before, but always wanted to learn to play the blues. From the first lesson with Floris I started playing the blues, I didn't know what kind of world would open up to me! He's very patient, which is exactly what I need in a teacher. As well, he completely sold me on online lessons, it's so convenient! I can definitely recommend him as a teacher.

I started piano lessons with Floris 6 months ago. He's been really great at helping what I want to learn, which is jazz music. I've always wanted to play like Wynton Kelly, and now I'm definitely on my way. He's super flexible to work with too.

I've been taking lessons with Floris for two years. We usually meet once a week, but when I am not available he's really flexible about moving our lesson to another time or skipping a week without charge.
I have learned so much from my lessons. I started as a total beginner and now I can comfortably read music and play chords. The thing I love most about Floris's lessons is that he really shows me how to learn on my own. For example, I wanted to learn a particular Adele song, and in stead of looking up the sheet music for it, he taught me how to learn it completely by ear. And now I have the tools to learn many more songs by ear!

Floris is a really great teacher. He can explain musical concepts really well and is always very patient with me. He also understands that I have a crazy work schedule and accommodates me accordingly.
I never thought I was very talented but wanted to give learning an instrument a shot. I am happy to report that with 2 years of lessons with Floris, I can comfortably say that I have gone from a total beginner to an intermediate level pianist.
