I am writing to tell you about the wonderful experience my daughter and I had with Stearns Matthews. We were in Stearns’s infant class at 12:30 on Mondays at Garden Street Music.
It was an absolute pleasure having Stearns as a teacher. He was consistently enthusiastic and attentive to each child. Even though my daughter is only 8 months old, I could tell she loved attending class and listening to Stearns. He very helpfully explained musical education concepts to the adults and answered our questions.
Perhaps most exceptional from my point of view was Stearns’s professionalism. He took class seriously–and I mean that in a good way! You could tell he really cares about music education, even for his smallest students. In my prior life as a corporate lawyer, I had many younger adults working for me, and I know it’s very rare to meet someone so young who is such a consummate professional.
We are signed up for the next semester with Stearns, and we’re both looking forward to it!
