Mike is an amazing tutor. He has the patience of a saint! My son started learning with Mike as a complete beginner and is now a very confident pianist. Highly recommended!
My son started with Mike over 3 years ago, he had self taught himself a little bit but for all intents and purposes he was a beginner. My son loves his lessons with Mike and enjoys learning pieces from all types of music genres - classic, jazz, rock. My son is now a really good piano player and a joy to listen to. Would highly recommend Mike as his has a very encouraging, patient and fun teaching style.
Highly recommend Mike Wesson who has been teaching my daughter to play piano for 6 years. Mike has a gentle but focussed teaching style and is really relaxed in being led by the child’s music taste in building skill. He has been endlessly patient with the evolving music tastes of a tweenager/ teenager and has built a great rapport with my daughter through a blend of wit and humour and a shared love of playing music, whatever the genre.
I love to listen to my son play the piano. I am very grateful to Mike at Westmount Music for making the lessons so enjoyable and encouraging his love of music. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to learn the piano.
