Pecos is a wonderful teacher. Very patient. Has excellent tips to accelerate the learning process. Customizes the classes to achieve my personal goals. I previously took cello years ago and got frustrated. Now I am 67 years old and his teaching recommendations have enabled me to accel far beyond where I quit last time. I am encouraged now to continue on. C.Hart
