Matt’s the best piano teacher ever. My daughter loved his lessons, his lessons are fun, he is encouraging and kind. We couldn’t of wished for better.
Robbie’s been having piano lessons with Matt for a couple of months now and absolutely loves it. He had his first virtual class last night – he continued to learn, and to laugh.😀 This is a fantastic way to have kids continuing to learn a wonderful life skill whilst all this is going on.
Finlay has his first virtual lesson this week! So glad we can continue music lessons!
