I came to Leon for piano pedagogy lessons, and his love for music teaching was infectious.  He teaches with enthusiasm and authority.  In teaching a piece, he can speak on aspects of history, analysis and interpretation in a way that you won’t forget it.  He often brings new and different ideas that I would never have considered, and he backs his interpretations with good, sound reasons.  He has a way of inspiring you to do your best and he encourages you to enter into the music in a meaningful way.

Leon has been very supportive of me as new teacher.  He provides ongoing encouragement and guidance.  I am very grateful to have such a talented and wise instructor.
