"Learning how to first play a string instrument as an older person, could be a daunting experience. However, learning how to play the ukulele with
Stryder has been a very encouraging and rewarding experience.
...more ’s compassion for helping others to learn how to play, feel confident and most important enjoy learning is a rare find. He varies the type of songs and selects ones that would appeal to me from a variety of genres - pop, rock, folk as well as current songs, bringing with it new strumming techniques and styles.
has worked with me to go beyond just playing songs, to feeling the different rhythms. He does not shy away from introducing me to challenging lessons, though I might express skepticism about my ability to learn the new material. He breaks the learning into steps that are quickly attainable, building confidence to go beyond whatwas just taught. I recommend
Stryder as a music teacher without hesitation and I am so glad I found him. "

"Getting the lessons scheduled was fairly easily set up through email. The quality of the piano teacher was very good. After the introductory package of 10 lessons, I ended up continuing to use Impromtu Music for piano lessons for my daughter.

Overall I am very pleased and plan to continue lessons into the foreseeable future.
"The teacher is good although sometime he will be late for appointment. But the big issue is the billing system of Impromptu with delays and miss calculations, though they will correct it only if you keep a good record for your classes.
