"Michael has worked with my daughter as her piano teacher. He adjusted his teaching in order to fit her needs. As a result of this my daughter's interest in piano turned into a passion. He aligned with her creativity and she now composes amazing music. She will continue to be his music student because of these qualities, and because of the support he provided in regards to her particular abilities."
