« David is an experienced musician and has been teaching my kids 7 & 10 Piano for more than a year. My daughter has passed grade 1 with him in Merit. My son only started Piano with David and has come a long way. David is patient and teaches the kids very methodically by taking into consideration their abilities and focus. And both my kids have improved so much under David's clock and we will recommend him to anyone. »

David is a very experienced teacher who wants the very best for his students in both theory and practical. He is very patient and encourages students to get out of their comfort zones. It is an added bonus that he teaches in our home. My children are going from strength to strength and as a parent I am very pleased. I highly recommend him.

David Roberts has been giving my 11 year old daughter weekly lessons for the past 1 1/2 years. He is very knowledgeable and has a lot of experience in the field of music and has encouraged her to do both theory and practical exams. She enjoys learning music and watching her, my 6 year old daughter too wanted to learn. He is very patient with the children. He knows how to get things done and have fun at the same time. He is flexible with lesson times. I would definitely recommend him.
