Matthew is 9 years old. He started piano lessons with Ms. Gretchen 18 months ago, and has recently performed his first recital. Matthew has had several group lessons and an all studio recital that have helped him prepare for his own recital. Matthew was very shy about playing piano in front of a group. His group lessons have really challenged him, and have prepared him for performing in front of an audience.
Parental involvement allows me to really enjoy listening to his performance as well as watching him learn so much. That Matthew can close his eyes and hear his teacher play, and learn how to play back the music, is amazing to watch. We are very proud and looking forward to his first performance for friends and family.
