I have an 18 year old and we hired Nick when we got our son a piano last year. Nick drives a good distance, but is still on time. In this kind of thing, there is no success if you and your student don't connect. My son seems to like and look forward to the lessons. That's a good thing.
The overall work is on the student. If you practice, there is success. Nick facilitates all the necessary elements so that my son can be successful.
Call Nick. You'll be glad you did.
