Bret Martin is an outstanding teacher! Our son has been learning piano from Mr. Martin for two year (since our son was 6yrs old). Mr. Martin is very knowledgeable and a fine player. He is very good at working with students of all ages by being encouraging and demanding at the same time. He truly wants his students to excel, but have fun during the process. The recitals he arranges are very nice for the students and families. His lesson rates are reasonable and lower than the big music store rates. We are extremely pleased and would highly recommend Mr. Martin!
In addition to being a wonderful pianist himself, Mr. Martin has the gift of being able to inspire and nourish piano talent. He helped prepare my child for audtions to the School for Creative and Performing Arts and my child was accepted! He has a way of praising and encouraging his students, and yet being able to stretch and extend their abilities. Mr. Martin was highly recommended by an adult friend of mine who also studies with him. He seems equally gifted in working with all ages. We love the recitals he holds for his students twice a year. It motivates them to practice that much harder so that they will perform well. My child was so excited after performing in the recital and has developed a higher level of self-esteem through the lessons and recitals. A++++ to this talented man and for inspiring my child to grow and even compose his own music (which he has performed in recitals). Thank you!!
