I received an email from Howard Nguyen (Sydney, Australia) recently. He graciously allows me to share his email with others.
Firstly, let me thank you for giving me so much pleasure with the piano music. Without you and your courses, I would still be in the dark and let me explain : about 2 years ago (when I was 65), I decided to learn piano, after a few weeks I almost gave it up as it was so difficult with the “conventional classical sheet music style”. Considering that I knew nothing about music theory nor any musical instrument at that time, I thought that piano playing was too hard for me. Then I came across YOU in the youtube, your style and teaching were so encouraging and I decided to follow you. I have purchased several DVD courses and have used them over and over again and I still do that as every time I watch the DVDs they teach me something new. I reckon the DVDs will last me for a life time.
Secondly, I want to say that your teaching is so clear and easy to follow. Your DVD courses are the best for piano improvisation. I enjoy creating my own music as you would expect me to do in improvisation, all thanks to some of the skill and techniques you teach in your DVDs
I would love to meet you one day and if I am closer to you then USA- Australia then I would become your student so that you can polish my techniques and tech me more skills. However music has no boundary and I feel I am closer to you than you would imagine !!!!.
Once again thank you and I trust you would allow me to mention your name in my Youtube postings. I will post more songs, but please have a listen to the following songs and give me your comments.
