Prior teachers just weren’t engaging with me. As soon as I started to work with Josh my attitude changed completely.
works a treat!
Who would have thought that kid’s piano lessons could be so much fun?!
The teacher's priority is playing music and specifically, the music that the student is listening to.
Play Music taught my daughter to play tunes that she knew and liked and it made a huge difference.
Play Music has made learning piano as an adult a breeze.
Roslyn's manner is perfect for older students and we have been able to work together to find exactly what learning style works for me - no boring bits here!!
The convenience of lessons in
my own home is a bonus.
I would definitely recommend Play Music to anyone looking to learn the piano.
