Miguel is very nice. We look forward to seeing him again online. We have a lot to learn and cover. He is clear with his lessons and in the end has a little review and goals for next time

Miguel is as fun as he is knowledgeable. He made cello fun again for my 12 year old son. My son’s skills have improved almost over night. His MS cello instructor was amazed.
