« Dan has a particular rapport with young people. He has a passion for his subject and inspires those he teaches. He has a lovely personality that is reflected in the quality of his teaching and he is able to pitch lessons at a perfect balance for our two children who have very different learning abilities and attitudes. They really look forward to their lessons. We are so pleased to have made contact with Dan and how he has encouraged progress in our children in their desire to learn the piano. »
