Ezra has been an excellent instructor for my daughter over the past few years. She has grown from a fledgling beginner to a confident young player, gaining skill and confidence as well as an appreciation for music. Ezra balances encouragement with high expectations that help her to improve. I would highly recommend lessons with Ezra to anyone looking to gain proficiency and joy in playing the piano!
Doreen
Ezra has challenged my 13-year-old son over the last 2 years! We are so pleased with the progress our son has made with a variety of piano pieces - classical as well as "popular." He has kept our son actively playing and progressing impressively with his piano skills! He communicates with parents frequently, and he connects and understands how to tap into a student's potential! We have been impressed with his teachings! Highly recommend him!
Linda
Our son Henry (8) has taken piano lessons from Ezra for the last few years. During that time, he has progressed from playing basic notes to playing real music and developing an appreciation for piano. Ezra is the perfect mix of firm & fun + encouraging & educational. His love of music and commitment to sharing his knowledge with others is apparent. Henry is lucky to have him as a teacher.

I've really been enjoying lessons and have been getting a lot out of them! Flexibility with scheduling concerns has also been well appreciated!
Baileigh B.
My daughter was so nervous for her first lesson and Phillip was amazing. She is 14 and said, "He didn't make me feel bad that I am not as good as I should be and so that makes me feel like maybe i can play better."
So grateful Phillip - she is anxious to spend the summer learning from you - we appreciate your approach and as he said ability to "put her at ease" so she can feel comfortable to learn. Awesome first lesson.

Cannot wait to go back. Patty is amazing- so patient and efficient and my daughter has not stopped talking about how much more she wants to learn.

Patty is a great teacher who takes pride in her work. She spent plenty of time making sure I understood the lessons, and made sure I was doing the homework and practicing between lessons.

To give a quick recommendation: My son started piano lessons with Patty a couple weeks ago and LOVES it! He’s 5 and is a very active little boy, but he sits still, listens and has really enjoyed it so far! Patty has been a great teacher

I have been playing piano since the age of six. Originally classically trained, I made a change to learning Jazz after hearing it on the radio one night while still in high school.

I began my teaching career in 2007, providing private piano instruction to beginners at a small, privately owned music school in Laurel, Maryland.

After the school closed it's doors in the Fall of 2011, I continued working with many of the students privately. It is these efforts I continue to this day.

Having the opportunity to work 1 on 1 with students and see their progression and development on a week to week basis is a truly, rewarding experience that I feel fortunate to be a part of.

*** Lesson Details ***
Although the approach you take with each student will be different, basic standard requirements will consist of:

1) Being able to locate notes on the piano in relation to middle C

2) Being able to recognize notes on the staffs and play them in the correct locations on the ...

Ian is a wonderful piano instructor. My 6 year old has been with Ian for some time now and I must say his patience is exceptional. He teaches in ways that my son can easily remember and makes the lesson fun. My son always looks forward to his piano lessons and he has learnt a lot in 2 months. I have had some experience with piano instructors but Ian is exceptional. I highly recommend him as an instructor to other children

This was our first lesson and it went really well. Alexander is an excellent piano player and teacher. My son was very comfortable in Alexander's home setting and learned a lot.
Gloria W.
My 6 year old granddaughter has been taking piano lessons from Alexander K. since for about 4 months now. I chose Alexander as a result of the number of years he has been teaching piano lessons to young kids. He is doing a great job teaching her. He is very patience with her inquisitive mind and leads her at her pace. She likes his teaching skills and has learned a lot in this short time. I am very impressed with the progress she has made. I plan to continue the lessons for as long as possible. Thanks Alexander for the great job you are doing with my granddaughter!

Bachelor's degree in Music with a minor in Applied Mathematics. Music has always been a passion of mine and it is why I pursued a degree in it. As an analytical person, I take a technical approach when it comes to teaching theory. My lessons will include mnemonic devices that will ensure you'll remember things for years to come. I want my students to be themselves and recognize the passion that comes from learning Music Theory.

"Troy is an excellent teacher – clear, knowledgeable, attentive and kind. I look forward to lessons every week because I know that I will come out of them with a sense of direction, something concrete I can work on during the week to improve. If you want to actually learn to play piano (and many other things besides!) I highly, highly recommend him."

"Mr. Rappaport was my clarinet professor and mentor in college and has continued to be an inspiration to me both as a teacher and as one of the finest clarinetist I know, both in the classical realm and in the jazz and swing styles.

Anyone who has ever heard me play has always complimented me on my clarinet tone. I can honestly say that my clarinet tone is the direct result of Mr. Rappaport's methods and his gentle but very stringent guidelines. If you are looking for someone to take you or your child to the highest standard of musicianship, look no further. I highly recommend lessons with Mr. Rappaport. Kim C."
