Piano teacher for 6yo near Berkeley

Hi, seeking advice on a piano teacher for a 6 year old (for our wiggly, new to music son) in the Berkeley area.   Hopefully someone that keeps it fun, isn't too serious, and has experience with younger, new musicians.  Thanks!

My (now 6) year old started virtual lessons in January with Ernie Mansfield of mansfieldmusic.com. It's been a really wonderful experience - Ernie strikes a great balance of fun/encouragement and manages the ipad lessons well. I do look forward to a return to in-person as I need to sit with my daughter through the whole lesson, but overall we have been super happy.

My wiggler recently started with Kristen at Piano Everyone https://pianoeveryone.com and we could not be happier with her gentle approach. 

Give Jimi Marks a call. Berkekey educated, trained in piano and drums for 25 years, and connects very well with young kids. DM me for his number/email. 

Susanne Stolcke taught our boys for many years.  All levels from tiny beginners to competitive.  Has an absolutely stress-free relationship with her students and their parents.  Our 22 yo still plays every day he can.
