Education Testimonials


"Garreth is a fantastic piano teacher.  He is adored by my children who take piano lessons from him each week. My twin girls get very excited when Garreth arrives to teach and he is a joy to have in our home. Garreth makes learning fun at the same time educational and he is very organized and has well thought out lesson plans. Garreth has also started to teach the girls some composition skills during their lesson time and this makes me very happy. Being a professional singer and voice teacher myself, I worked very hard to find the right music teacher to give my children a strong start to their musical education. Picking the right teacher was of great importance to me and I can say that I am truly pleased with our choice of Garreth as their teacher." - Brenda Christensen, Canadian soprano and voice teacher, mother of two students.

"My daughters are thoroughly enjoying their lessons with Garreth.

"Garreth taught me piano for nearly a year, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. He is patient (very!), knowledgeable, good-humoured and really knows how to make lessons enjoyable for all ages. I recommend him completely". - Former student.
