Student Comments:

“My son can be very stubborn and difficult to communicate with. I have seen Ma Fletcher, week by week, be versatile in his teaching. He continues to find ways to keep his lessons interesting and engaging for my son. When we started these lessons my son was afraid to touch the instruments, was afraid of making mistakes and had no sense of notes or rhythm. It is amazing to see the skills and confidence he has built in such a short period of time with reading music, counting beats and trying new things. We are very appreciative of Ma Fletcher for the patience and effort he has put into bringing music into our family.

Thank you Ma Fletcher!!” – Chary Woods

“Ma Fletcher is a wonderfully engaging teacher. I have two sons who are both taking piano lessons with Ma, and they each require completely different approaches. Ma Fletcher has individualized his lesson plan for each of my sons to give them exactly what they need to stay motivated, meet their potential, and enjoy not only the lessons but their practice as well. I am so thankful to have found Ma Fletcher.” – Sashya Churchill
