Mr. Leonard has been Daniel’s piano teacher since October of 2021, and has shared his thoughts on teaching Daniel: 


"Daniel is a really smart kid. From his first couple of lessons back in October, Daniel was so on top of all of his classwork and homework. He has blown through the curriculum book and always has a great attitude in his lessons. You can tell he really is passionate about music from the preparedness of his work. He is going to grow up to be an amazing musician!”
