  Besides his success in the teaching of adults and aspiring professionals, Mr. Sellers has been very effective in the teaching of children.

He believes that a quality education in music and the other arts is a basic ingredient in a well-rounded education.

Mr. Sellers doesn't just teach piano, he also makes an effort to discover the true and unique talents and abilities of each student, and to develop individual creativity.
  "Michael Sellers is a rare combination--an artist who is also a good teacher of small children.

He is kind and patient and respectful of the children, yet he continuously challenges them to study and master more difficult tasks.
