Hi Andrew :br>
I am presently taking piano lessons with a piano teacher,
but feel I need additional instruction. I am really enjoying
your piano lessons and find your instruction very helpful
and easy to follow. I took lessons years ago, but sort of
gave up for a time. I decided to go back to the piano again
a little later in life and have really discovered my passion
once again. As you stated "love" the instrument
you are playing as it really makes a difference in your
progress. I am looking forward to more lessons here. Thanks.

Thanks for your post, this is very useful and helpful. I
must know it. I myself is a product of this kind. I was so
scared with my piano teacher so I asked my mom to stop the
lesson. Then a friend of mom gave us this link; href=""
It really helped me, now I can play like a pro.
