Comments from Families:
“He comes to your house and he’s fantastic. As well as teaching songs from a book, Chris has children composing music as soon as their very first lesson (which my daughter LOVES)…. happy Mom!”
“I don’t know what he said to her during her lesson but suddenly there’s been a complete turnaround. He’s like the baby-whisperer for six year old piano students!”
AND FOR RETIRED ADULTS
Mary Bennet – student from retired community
“Doctor Kaufman is an amazingly talented piano teacher. He offers an abundance of knowledge in practical skills and resource materials while encouraging the student with patience and good humor. He makes the lessons interesting by introducing the student to a variety of composers from different eras.
I studied the piano in my youth and returned to lessons six decades later. I was very fortunate to have the opportunity to work with Doctor Kaufman who inspired me to start learning and enjoying the piano. The rewards are beyond expectations!”
