He quickly recognized some negative spots vs good learning habits that I have. He was supportive all the time and I only received positive energy from him. I was feel lucky and content. It is hard to find someone who is nice and honest with integrity. I believe he is a true professional natural teacher with all the above experiences. Dan is actually able to deliver on what he said. I strongly recommend him to anyone who needs specialized areas with perfect understanding of Music Theory.
He's engaging, personable, and most importantly, actually teaches the material so my son can do it himself. He fills the holes in my son's knowledge and the mistakes in his thinking. My husband has worked in the same room where Richi works with my son, and he says Richi is the best all-around teacher we've encountered - counting all the school teachers, music teachers, coaches, etc. - in a word, phenomenal - grab this inspiring math guru if you can!
For instance, I sometimes learn best by watching, so if I ask him to show me something he readily does. Or, if I am thinking way ahead, such as how I may use a flam in a song, he doesn't get impatient and say, "we'll get to that," but instead, answers the question and talks about how it will be worked into our lessons. I highly recommend Stefano to anyone who wants to learn drums the right way.
