“Robert LeGendre is a very talented pianist, and very knowledgeable in his field. Robert currently teaches my daughter and I have seen a wonderful change in her being, since taking piano lessons. Olivia loves Robert's style of teaching and he is very good with young adults. He teaches them without putting them down and Olivia's outlook about learning the piano is very positive because of it. Robert is a very rare find in today's pool of teachers. I highly recommend him and I am very happy he is instructing my daughter.”
