I have enjoyed Mike as my piano instructor for many years. Mike has been very understanding and accommodating of my busy adult schedule. He accepts my desire to quickly learn certain favorite songs and styles. Although some of the weeks I am not as prepared as I should be, I still look forward to my appointment. Mike's background as an active professional performer keeps him in touch with the "real world" of music that adults enjoy......this helps keep the lessons more interesting.

I am a twelve year old student of Mike Garrity. I think he is an amazing teacher! He really helps me learn the piece by breaking it down for me. He's really patient, kind and helpful. He never yells at me if I am struggling with a song. He is very understanding and a fun teacher. He let's me pick out my own music if I want to take a break from my lesson book. I can't stress enough how much of a great teacher he is!!
It is so wonderful to have such a talented piano teacher right in our neighborhood. My kids can even walk or ride their bikes to the piano lessons!! Mike is so patient and kind with the kids. They really enjoy learning different kinds of music. I love it because Mike is a great communicator and is flexible and easy to talk to, I highly recommend Mike Garrity!!
