Proud adult student

“I think what you have done is incredibly impressive. I’m proud to be your student”-Ronnie F.

Stretching musical understanding and skills (from an adult student)

“I learned a great deal about music and myself from my last lesson. You are truly stretching my musical understanding and skills, which is just what this doctor ordered. As I have stated in the past, your students are quite blessed to have you as a teacher.”-Christine C.

Teaching more than music

“Thanks for all the wonderful things you’re teaching the kids not only music but also to be a good responsible citizen. We appreciate it very much!”-Han N.

Time and energy

I thought you might want to know that K. is REALLY enjoying the piano this year.  I believe the music and talent she is entertaining us with today is largely from the time you spent with her over the past few years…. I know it would have been so much easier and less stressful to give up on her.  I really appreciate all the time and energy you put into developing her skills. – Maureen S., former student family who had to move away

Caring, funny, and encouraging

“Thank you so much for being my piano teacher.  You have been an inspiration to me with your caring, funny, and encouraging spirit.  I will keep in mind what you have taught me as I continue to practice. Your passion for music encourages me to pursue my dreams whether in piano or out.” – Stacy S.

Inspiring

“Thank you for inspiring H. with her piano interests this year.  It’s so fun to sit back and watch her grow.  We appreciate all you have done for her!” – Edie C.

High Standards

“Bob Baldwin has a remarkable ability of relating to our son and daughter as they started piano lessons from ages 7 and 8. He uses age appropriate material and keeps the standards high while still being fun. While clearly an expert himself; he never loses the perspective of younger students and their journey into music.” – Steve & Kristin Posson

Phenomenal Teacher

“Robert is a phenomenal teacher. He approaches his students individually, taking the time to explore and determine how they learn. He then creatively adapts his teaching style to fit the student, and get results. And, you should see him play!” – John DelVecchio

Thank You

“I’m currently living in New York, in Mount Vernon, right outside of New York City, and I just wanted to let you know that I got a job working as an assistant in a piano shop. I used a lot of the stuff you taught me, so I wanted to thank-you….” – Stephen Baqqi

If Only …

“If only I had a teacher like Robert when I was learning piano. I would still be playing.” – Lilian Henderson

Appreciation

“Please relay my gratitude, appreciation and thanks to Bob…for the great job he did on Saturday. It was indeed a very impressive display of musicianship and courage.” – William Henry Curry (Resident Conductor of the North Carolina Symphony Orchestra)

Patient & Creative

“I strongly recommend Robert to you. I have worked with him as a church musician and have been impressed with his dedication to sacred music and his very high level of technique and musicianship. God has used his exceptional ability, passion, talent and gifts to touch the lives of God’s people. I can highly recommend him as a piano teacher. I am impressed by his patience and creativity in the way that he works with my son and seeks to reach all his students to share his passion for music.” – Karen Whitaker

Overheard

One young student was overheard in the next room by her mom, talking to her friend: “And I can play one you might want to hear because it is really cool and I love playing it.” [She plays “Swinging Monkeys”] “I can play it closing my eyes, and it says play twice so I played it twice. I am having piano lessons and I can play ‘Rocket Ships’ if you want me to and I am using OCTOPUS ARMS!” (Sorry, but you will have to sign up for lessons to find out what “octopus arms” are.)
