I've been teaching since 1999 in my studio where my students learn how to play piano through lesson books filled with great songs and fun puzzles. Cool prizes are earned by playing various "carnival" games. Piano lessons have never been this much fun!
Interacting with all my students on their level. I enjoy playing duets with them and watching as they perform on their own.
He is amazing with people, especially kids, and has a very friendly/family-friendly atmosphere. He encourages and tolerates everybody extremely well.
He is so very knowledgeable about music. He works so well with children ~~motivating them to learn, while having fun with them, with computer games and flashcards, with incentives (like stickers) to excel in their ability and playing skills. His sense of humor is infectious. In addition, he is fantastic with adults, being patient, understanding, friendly, and kind. He is a joy.
Mr. Darren uses a variety of teaching tools to keep the lessons informative, interesting and fun. The studio decor and his personality create a relaxed atmosphere for the beginner as well as the advanced student. Mr. Darren gauges the students' pace to make sure they can achieve the assignment and enjoy a feeling of accomplishment.
