As an adult, I had previously taken piano/keyboard lessons prior to meeting Mr. Blackwell. He is very patient, teaches at a comfortable pace, gives a reasonable amount of homework (assignments can easily be completed between lessons) and has a gentle spirit. You would be fortunate to have him as an instructor.
