My students sometimes post reviews and recommendations of our work together on the internet.
Here’s a recent review written by an adult private student who has been taking lessons since January, 2016:
“I began studying piano with Andy Wasserman a little more than a year ago, as a beginning (56-year-old) student. Learning the piano as an adult is a special challenge, yet Andy has shown unending patience and flexibility in his teaching.
He crafts his lessons around my musical interests and enables me to progress at my own pace, always encouraging but never placing undue demands or expectations on me. As a teacher he invokes his long musical career and his own virtuosity on the piano in ways that enhance my understanding of piano history, styles, and technique. He also weaves in plenty of music theory, tying theory to practice in a way that makes his lessons more holistic and accessible.
Andy is a wonderful conversationalist and storyteller, and our discussions have ranged far and wide, and often far beyond music. He’s a consummate artist, dedicated both to his craft and to his students, and his passion for the piano is infectious. Andy is always punctual for our lessons and he’s always flexible whenever I need to reschedule a lesson due to work or travel obligations.
I highly recommend Andy as a piano teacher, and I’d be happy to talk further about Andy’s teaching style with any prospective student or parent.
