I focus on technique, repertoire and interpretation.
Music is a conversation between composer and performer.
His approach to teaching my daughter is beyond outstanding. She loves learning to play the piano and I can't be happier.
Clovis Bordeaux and I have been friends and business colleagues for over nine(9) years now. Mr. Bordeaux is no doubt highly rated as a professional Pianist both theoretical and practical in his special unique creative and talented abilities in reaching both his students and the general audience. I have personally been a music student of Mr. Bordeaux learning music theory and playing mainly the Flute,piano,and some drums. Also I was invited to the High School where he thought full time music to High School Students. It was a great inspiration to see how spirited and Dynamic he conducted these highly intricate renditions as his students performed flawlessly. There were many other musical events That I was privileged to attend and they still linger in my mind as a musical tapestry of Musical Joy. It is my pleasure in writing this review of friend,business colleague and one of the most reputable and inspirational professional musician;with talented abilities to draw out the best out of his students. Mr. Clovis Bordeaux will certainly bring a high level of professional musical productivity as a fulfillment to You and Team.
Mr. Bordeaux is an excellent teacher.
Clovis Has been a great help in rebuilding my improvisational skills and theoretical concepts playing. He's patience understanding and highly knowledgeable. Clovis has enhanced my physical and the spirituality connection in music also. I'm becoming more confident in my playing; and I don't believe I could have gotten to the point I am now without his guidance.

As an undergraduate, I talked with fellow students about pieces we were working on. It was an opportunity to share approaches to the repertoire.
I have taught children in the public schools, adults through grants I received from the Illinois Arts Council and the Chicago Office of Fine Arts, and students on the Columbia College and Illinois State University campuses.
I am a member of the Chicago Amateur Pianists Guild and the Chicago Piano Meetup. Both of these organizations present recitals which I participate in regularly. My most recent performance there was the Moskowski Etude in G minor which I recorded to present as a birthday tribute to the great pianist and composer Dr. Ra Un Nefer Amen.
Try to determine if the instructor loves music.
Students should ask themselves if they are able to be consistent. The goals you have may require a long-term commitment.
