Where do I begin

My adult student, Andrew Gardyne, started piano in 2010 as a complete beginner with no previous musical experience and with patience and dedication is now playing at grade 5 standard and above. Two examples of his playing can be heard above. He now has the confidence to play occasionally in hotels and other venues.
