Ian has amazing skills, has extensive experience working with all kinds of special needs kids and is an all around great person who is lovable and kind. He worked with our son for about a year and we saw incredible things happen. He was very patient, innovative and creative with his techniques. He also helped our son improve his math facts by doing singing times tables with him and encouraged improvised expression during each session. I recommend him highly. Rather than music teachers who just do sing-alongs, his work encompasses much more and is geared towards real neurological, emotional and social development through music. It’s because of this that I find him to be the “real deal”, as it were. His friendly and open personality, sincere dedication to his work and his flexible approach are just what we were looking for.
