Rory Bennett, music composer and pianist
Sharon Mann Oryan has endorsed your work on Linkedin as : Teacher/Composer/Entertainer/Pianist/Vocalist Details of the Recommendation: "I am very happy to recommend Rory Bennett as a piano teacher.
Rory has an innate ability to "read" his pupils and tailor his teaching style to their learning styles. Rory has been teaching two of our sons for 16 months. Neither of them had ever had a music/piano lesson before meeting him. Each of them has an hour-long lesson once a week and neither of them has ever asked to skip a lesson, not even on school holidays. Our youngest son (currently 9 years old) asked to start lessons with Rory after witnessing Rory teach his older brother; we did not imagine at the time that he would sit still for an entire hour, nor did we envisage that he would insist on continuing lessons even while sporting a cast on his broken left arm for six weeks.
Through Rory's teaching, our other son (currently 13 years old) has discovered in himself a rare talent for the piano. Rory has helped him develop his natural gift and go from an absolute beginner to a promising pianist in a very short space of time.
Rory is a dedicated teacher and recognizes the importance of teaching theory, scales, note recognition and sight reading. He insists on the highest standards while maintaining an admirable flexibility that enables him to engage and inspire completely different types of students. He is happy to introduce different musical genres, tailored to the specific students' needs and abilities, and takes a holistic approach to teaching, ensuring that teacher, parents and students all work together to achieve the students' goals.
Rory is always punctual and well organized as a teacher and always brings his sunny side to work. We often hear peals of laughter as well as musical compositions from the direction of the piano.
Rory's continuing personal involvement in the musical world as a performer and composer adds more depth and direction to his teaching and is a source of unique opportunities for his students."
