Ian is a very professional, organized teacher who comes to each lesson with a purpose and a wealth of knowledge for his students. He offers a nice balance of traditional training along with modern/contemporary styles of music, including the student’s preferences as well. Ian has made piano a pleasant learning experience for my son.
Ian has met with my 6 year old daughter and 9 year old son for the last 10 months in my home. In that time my children have grown in their enjoyment of music and their skills in playing several piano pieces from a wide variety of genres. Ian has a candor that is disciplined yet kind, and my children love to practice for him throughout the week without being asked! He challenges them to compose music, and uses a musical pedagogy that is based on developmental research. He is easy to communicate with via cell/text or email and has a great website.
Instructor Ian was a wonderful piano teacher to our two children! He was patient, extremely knowledgeable and kept them both motivated and challenged during their lessons! He’s as good as it gets! Thank you, Ian! :)
Great TeacherIan teaches my 14 year old son Piano. Ian is very professional and arrives on time. My son is progressing quite nicely. He seems to have a good rapport with Ian. I highly recommend Ian as a teacher.
I really enjoy Ian as a teacher and as a person. He always strives to be current and is now using a new and somewhat innovative method to teach piano. My girls NEVER cry or complain about practicing the piano since we have switched to this Simply Music format of teaching. Being classically trained on the piano myself, it was a big leap of faith to go with this new program as it is so different than the traditional way I learned to play. That being said, I was totally unwilling to give Ian Belloso up as my children’s teacher. He is nothing but calm, patient and professional with my girls. I look forward to continuing on this musically journey with him as my children’s teacher.
After 3 teachers in a couple of months we decided to give piano lessons another try. We found Ian and my girls who are 6 and 8 adore him. They look forward every lessons. The most important to me when it comes to my child learning is how the teacher treated my kids and how they enjoy learning. Since we started with Ian, my girls learned a lot and the lessons always ended with a big smile. So glad we have him in this journey.
Very patient and accommodating. Son is enjoying piano lessons again. Thanks Ian!
