Experienced piano teacher of 6 years available for eager students of all experience levels and ages! I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation in musicianship skills. I specialize in Classical piano, typically use selections from the Classical repertoire, and also have the following tools available to use during lessons: beautiful Essex EGP-173C grand piano, artist bench, extensive library of piano sheet music.

Ezra is patient and exceptionally gifted at explaining complex topics to students of all levels. His own excellence as a performer and composer make him capable of addressing both performance technique and academic musical concerns with great specificity and clarity. And he's just a nice guy!
