Hello, I'm not at all close to being an advanced student. I am actually only beginning to work on RCM two. It is almost impossible to find a teacher who would
teach (safely) in person and I'm really tired of zoom lessons. One school I found is willing to offer lessons in person but all of their teachers are graduates of
a jazz university program. They are pianists, their background is just jazz. This is probably a silly question because as I said I'm not at all even an intermediate
student at this point in time. I'm just wondering if it's ok to start off with a teacher with a jazz background if I'm interested in doing a more classical
stream.

Peter is amazing and a wonderful inspiration. We have spoken in the past and his fee-deservedly is too high for me. Very very encouraging teacher though.
