I have been acquainted with Mr. Peter Grealey for a period of 14 years. I know him to be hard-working music teacher, excelling in piano, guitar and drums -instruments that particularly interest young students.

He is a person of good character, who honours his contracts and maintains stability and reliability.

I have no hesitation is recommending him for a position of supervision in musical instruction.

I am writing this letter of recommendation on behalf of Peter Grealey.

I came to know Peter in his capacity as a music instructor to my three children, Matthew (piano and keyboard), James (drums) and Paolina (piano and guitar) in 2003. His performance as a music teacher is excellent.

Peter is a patient, dedicated and innovative instructor which will be great assets to him as a music teacher. He is quite creative in developing teaching techniques and trying new approaches when necessary. Furthermore, he always considers his student's levels, age and interests when developing a program unique to their n~eds.

At a personal level, Peter is a fun, caring and passionate man who truly loves his job, and the progress of his students. Throughout the years, he consistently motivated and encouraged my children to learn because he was able to make the learning process a fun and exciting experience.

Currently, my children are still taking lessons and are all involved in band and Jazz band in and outside of school. Peter was able to provide a great appreciation for music to my children today and in their future. Both my husband and I are truly proud of our children's musical talents due to the dedication and commitment of Peter Grealey.

Peter is undoubtedly, a good candidate for a music teacher position. He has proven himself to have the dedication, skills and intellectual capability for being a successful music teacher. I recommend Peter Grealey for any music program designed for children and adults.

To those concerned,

I am writing this letter of recommendation for Mr. Peter Grealey owner of Esquimalt Music Centre. I am the father of two school aged girls who attended E.M.C. for a number of years where they learned to play both piano and guitar. My daughters enjoyed themselves and showed genuip.e interest in going to their lessons. I myself learned piano skills as a result of helping the girls with their practice at home. I found Peter to be very patient and structured in his instruction, and the atmosphere was always positive and supportive.

I am very confident that Peter would be a valued asset to your Active Living Program. Peter is polite, professional, and most importantly, fun to spend time with. I'm sure your clients will soon agree.

To whom it may concern

I am writing you this letter with respect to Peter Grealey of Esquimalt Music Centre. I met Peter over 20 years ago, when he first came in to rent space from us to teach music lessons. He rented with us for 3 or 4 years until we renovated and Esquimalt Music moved to it's current location. During this time Peter always demonstrated a professional work ethic. Eager to follow projects through to their completion, Peter takes pride in his work.

All 3 of my children have taken music lessons from Peter and have enjoyed his teaching style. I have heard nothing but good things about Peter from many of his students over the years.

Yours sincerely,

Douglas N.A. Scott

It is with great pleasure that I write this letter of recommendation on behalf of Peter Grealey. He has been our music teacher for several years. My daughter has taken piano lessons for 5 years and my son studied guitar for 3 years.

Music lessons with Peter have been engaging and positive. He customized the music and lessons to their current skill level while at the same time providing challenges to keep the learning process going. By allowing the kids to choose their own music, they became more motivated to practice and play.

Peter is friendly and patient and his experience and love of music is evident. He sees each student as an individual and draws upon there strengths to teach them in ways that work best for them. Peter is a very positive and encouraging teacher who is able to make confident self- motivated piano/guitar players out of his students. I highly recommend Peter as a music teacher.

Yours truly,

Bev McConkey
