“I’ve played piano for over 55 years and organ over 40 years. In all my years of music, I have never met a musician who is so down to earth and well versed in all areas of music. I felt I needed to improve my fingering, technique, meter, and productive practicing method. Because of my music background, I knew I needed some professional guidance. Albert has the ability to make learning fun, challenging, and rewarding. He ‘tailor makes’ each lesson as a positive learning experience for his students. Even though I had music theory, music appreciation, and private lessons on the university level, I learned more about composition, practical application, theory, and music history from Albert than anyone else. I highly recommend Albert Palmeter as a man who loves to teach and is exceptional in his teaching style, whatever level of skill the individual is at.”

“Mr. Palmeter has only been my instructor and friend for a short time, but it didn’t take long for me to realize that I had discovered a man with a truly unique teaching ability. It is similar to an athlete finding a great coach. Once you reach a connection with that individual, everything becomes simplified. I have always enjoyed the piano and music will forever be an important part of my life; however, after spending time practicing with Mr. Palmeter, music is not only important, but something I cannot live without. He is by far the best instructor I’ve ever had. There is not a price too high or a distance too far to meet with such an accomplished musician. Thank you for all that you have done. I look forward to many more lessons.”

“Albert Palmeter joined the Tempe Symphony Orchestra in 2004, and quickly became a valued, loyal member because of his musicality, music preparation, and fine attendance record. He is an expressive and capable pianist who shows great creativity in his execution of the orchestral literature that we perform. From time to time, I have asked Albert to play concerto movements in rehearsal to prepare the orchestra for our piano soloists when they arrive for their dress rehearsal. His excellent readings have caused orchestra members to comment most favorably to me about his fine musicianship and technical ability.
The Tempe Symphony Orchestra is honored to have Albert with us as our keyboard specialist. There is no doubt in my mind that his teaching skills are as excellent as his playing skills, so I have no hesitation in recommending him as a teacher for students of all ages. His engaging personality will make the most difficult lessons go pleasantly and quickly.”
