Review for Charles C.
"My name is Gene , and I am a pianist, composer, and educator with a decade of professional performance experience internationally. I graduated with two degrees from The University of Miami in jazz performance and composition. I am writing to recommend Charles for a private music instructor position at your institution. Charles is an engaging and innovative artist and educator. He is a skilled multi-instrumentalist who exudes passion with everything he does. Charles and I have been musical colleagues for several years both in performance and also in educational circumstances. As a teacher myself who has had studio of piano students for about a decade, I have asked Charles multiple times to oversee my own students when I am on tour. He is highly personable, and great with working with students of all ages. I would highly recommend Charles for any teaching position. I have learned a great deal from him while working with him, as he has offered countless hours of advice songwriting, music production, and approaches to performing. I strongly feel that it would be wise decision to add Charles to your teaching team. " Gene Knific wrote at Saturday, Jan. 07th 2017
