Started with Mr Bennet when I was 5 and was with him until I started high school. He is an amazing teacher and I learned so much from him
Mr. Bennett taught me piano from 1959-1968. He provided a lifelong skill that I still use and for which I am eternally indebted. I know of no better piano teacher, from every perspective - musicality, theory, sightreading, agility, etc. He is absolutely the best teacher and deserving of every award and accolade he has ever received.
Mr. Bennett is one of the most knowledgeable people regarding music study that I know. You will find him a wonderful teacher.
