As an instructor for piano, musicianship skills and theory he would be considered the ideal instructor for the serious student of any age. (This is not to say that studying seriously can’t be fun.) While stressing performance technic that allows the student to play progressively more difficult pieces as well as allowing them to play in many styles he also focuses on helping his students develop sound musicianship skills.
