I customize student's learning/development plan based on their short/long term music goals. We also have recitals twice a year to provide students the opportunity to perform before their family and friends.
Be a part of the process of coaching students from not being able to play the piano to successfully performing a musical selection they have set as a goal!
John is a wonderful teacher! My daughter is 5 and this is her first piano experience. John is kind, patient, and motivating in each of his lessons with her. He really takes the time to explain things to her and to try different approaches if something proves to be challenging. Our daughter enjoys attending each week and has learned so much in just a few months! We definitely recommend Keys To Success and look forward to continuing our time with Mr. John!
Instructor is patient and encouraging. His students want to please him, and do well, even at times when much practicing is evident.
You will not find a more caring and nurturing teacher for your child. John has done an amazing job of individualizing his lessons to fit the needs of each of his students. In my daughter’s case, he has been masterful in allowing her to explore her vocal talents in addition to the piano as well as cultivating her love of composing music. John is devoted to supporting her down whichever avenue she chooses to go. Because of that support, Laynie has progressed to levels that we still are in awe of and all of that is due to the fact that John has created a trust with her that allows her to pursue challenging pieces without fear of failure. We could not imagine having her study with anyone else. I can not possibly give a strong enough endorsement of John’s ability as a teacher. He has been such a blessing for my daughter.
My boys are 22 and 18. Teacher John has kept them interested and loving the piano, even tho they are far older now than so many other students. He has instilled a genuine love of Music in them. I think it may have a lot to do with the fact that he allows them to pick music that interests them and he John has also come to know their likes and dislikes and will help them choose music that they end up loving!!
