What I appreciate the most of Michael's lessons is his method. He invites you to approach practice not as a dreary task but as problem solving. I discovered the excitement that comes with overcoming musical difficulties. He supports you in bringing up your musical vitality to full potential. He teaches how to trust yourself.
Michael has a very patient approach with young students. My daughter was only 5 years old when we started taking lessons with him. His methods kept her interested and feeling accomplished while working through a simpler curriculum than my older daughter. He gave her plenty of time to learn and ask questions while having fun playing the piano.
