Realistic Expectations Studio of Music
The Building Blocks of Success
Celeste is a great teacher! She has that special ability to be encouraging yet firm, to recognize a student's special needs and interests, and, above all, to make learning music fun. She organizes special groups, such as for guitar, flute and rock band so that her students can socialize and enjoy making music together. Get music, have fun -- see Celeste.
After retiring to the Northern Neck, I decided, less than a year ago, to take up clarinet playing again. I am 75 years old and have not played since high school. I consider myself fortunate that Celeste Gates took me on as her student. She is particularly patient with my numerous errors. From her I am learning rapidly. After only a few months under her guidance I feel that I am already a much better player than I was 60 years ago. I never was good at counting, listening to others or rhythm and now Celeste is helping me develop these skills. I can strongly recommend her, especially for adult students, She is probably excellent with youngsters too, but I have no first hand knowledge of this.
