Pecos has been an exceptional instructor for my 15-year-old son with diverse music tastes and who is progressing to intermediate-level cello. Pecos’ instruction is insightful and attentive to the individual student, and my son feels the lessons are valuable and effective. We also appreciate receiving a followup report after each lesson outlining new techniques and practice goals for the next week, a huge improvement to the interpretive “mom notes” my children have had to rely on in past years of string instruction.
