Coach / Conductor Ted Ganger is one of the most experienced, passionate and fun teachers I have ever worked with. I was incredibly lucky to have met a mentor like him before my audition in Germany. In our first meeting I was already feeling hugely supported and very positive about his advice. He knew exactly what I needed to be successful in Germany. By the 4th lesson I had gained a lot of confidence and motivation to do well not only in my audition but also in my life as a pianist!
My audition was successful, I am now studying for my Masters in Stuttgart, Germany
