Music should be fun, but just like anything, we must learn the techniques to become proficient. My goal is to help not only students learn to play the guitar, but also offer correlate it to other parts of their lives to enhance understanding.

I love to teach students of any level from beginner to advanced. If you are a beginner, in the first few lessons you will learn how to put the clarinet together, how to put the reed on the mouthpiece, and be able to play a simple melody. I like to use the Klose Method book, and simple solos including music from film scores like Star Wars. Advanced players can work on clarinet technique and repertoire including orchestral excerpts and major solo literature. I look forward to meeting you!

About William

I am a skilled clarinetist who has had great training, and the professional career to back it up, but I am also a kind, supportive teacher who wants to work with a student in the way they need to be worked with. Whether your ambitions are modest, you want a career in music, or somewhere in between

I studied clarinet with William Rappaport when I was a graduate
student in music education at Georgia State University. He may be the
most deeply musical person I have ever known. My sense was that,
though he was a performer of the absolute highest caliber, he was
equally passionate about teaching.
When I initially contacted Bill to schedule lessons, I explained that
I was visually impaired. I wanted to share this information with him
upfront in the event that he had questions or concerns about teaching
me. I remember him saying clearly, “I am aware of the possibilities.”
That was all I needed to hear to feel comfortable entering his studio.
Bill encouraged me to take on any challenge in the clarinet
literature that interested me. He used every possible metaphor he
could think of to communicate ideas that were more easily accessed if
you could simply look at the printed page. He was always warm and
friendly, but focused, never wasting one second of our time together.
Following my work with Bill, I attended The University of Michigan
where, though I was a music education doctoral student, I was
instantly welcomed into one of the clarinet studios. Bill’s creative
work with me played an enormous role in making that happen. Now, I am
a community college professor, teaching a variety of classes including
a studio class for instrumental music students. I often find myself
using the same examples Bill employed with me to help my current
students. I am profoundly grateful for his unyielding commitment to my
growth when I was a student of his.

I’ve played clarinet for over 30 years, and was a clarinet major in college. I started studying with Mr. Rappaport after I was out of college for several years and had moved to Atlanta, where Mr. Rappaport was playing in the Atlanta Symphony. I found him to be the best teacher I had ever studied with. His ability to help me understand the musical phrase, no matter what style of music I was working on, was amazing. I studied standard clarinet etudes, orchestral literature, and clarinet solo repertoire with Mr. Rappaport. He had the same mild, yet persistent approach with me on everything we worked on – always working to get me to play it to the best of my ability.
One thing I had always feared having to play some day was the opening solo to Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue. A former teacher had been unable to help me with it. So, when a band I was playing with scheduled the piece and told me to get ready to play the solo, I was traumatized and contacted Mr. Rappaport for help. He worked with me and not only got me playing the opening glissando, but helped me to have a better understanding of the other jazzy spots in the piece. So now I can say I’ve performed that piece about 20 times, and the fear is gone! Thanks, Mr. Rappaport!
Regardless of your level of playing, I think you will find Mr. Rappaport to be an outstanding teacher!
Kim
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.

I've worked with Broadway actors, amateur adults, kids of all ages and with renowned theatre companies such as TADA!, Brooklyn Children's Theatre, STEPS on Broadway and The Neighborhood Playhouse for 20 yrs, teaching students how to reach their full potential as musical theatre performers.

I teach private on-line musical theatre coaching lessons to kids, age 7 and up, and adults of any age. If you are looking for a musical theatre teacher/coach, you've come to right place! Most coaches in musical theater are primarily pianists and don't have a background in voice, acting or performing. I have a background, not only as a musical director/pianist, but as a professional singer and actor in opera and musical theatre as well as teaching music, both privately and in classes for many years.

I focus on 3 main things:
1) your voice...teaching you to sing with a well-produced, flexible, expressive and healthy tone...
2) your musicianship...sightsinging, learning to understand and ...

Lawrence is a great coach for musical theater singing. When I was in the 5th grade I had an audition for this school called ppas, which is a preforming arts school. I love musical theater and I was taking lessons in neighborhood playhouse. Lawrence was one of the vocal coaches there so my mom got him as a private coach. He was really helpful in teaching me how to sing, he picked a really good song for me and he helped me a lot. I got into the school, and I probably wouldn't have if it weren't for him. We also got him as a coach for my laguardia audition, and although my voice had changed a lot he helped pick the right song and we worked on it. He helped me get in there as well. Would defininetly reccomend.
Maddie
My daughter has been taking Musical Theater with Lawrence for 7 years now. Lily has grown as a performer under his instruction. Lily describes his classes as fun, fun and fun. Lawrence is an exceptional teacher who provides his students with a supportive and collaborative environment and where he nurtures their creativity. His love of Musical Theater definitely shines through in his classes. He's great!
Miranda H.
Lawrence Rush is an inspiring and gifted teacher. My daughter took her first musical theater class with Lawrence when she was nine years old at the renowned Neighborhood Playhouse in NYC, and she has been a dedicated student of musical theater ever since. Lawrence created an atmosphere in class that was safe, fun, and joyful, and he made the kids feel that no idea was a bad one. Among the many classes that my daughter took with Lawrence, she particularly loved the elective where her class write and acted in their own original play. Lawrence managed to lead his students through a process that was both rigorous and exhilarating, culminating in one of the high points of my daughters young life. I am also an arts educator, and I know a gem of a teacher when I see one. Lawrence is truly one of those rare teachers who leave a lasting deeply positive impact on children, and I could not recommend him more enthusiastically.

I can't say enough good things about Earl's instruction. He's extremely knowledgeable and talented and yet responsive, inspiring, and kind. Rather than applying a narrow and rigid approach to teaching, lessons are built around my abilities and interests and he has taught me new ways of looking at music and playing guitar. I feel very fortunate to be one of his students.

"My son has been practicing piano with Elisabetta for more than a year and the progress he has made during this period really made me happy and proud. My son not only learned the skills of piano but also gained the passion for music from Elisabetta, who demonstrated great professionalism in piano , as well as the zeal for music and the love for kids. She has a very organized approach to get kids interested in music, while not getting bored with basic skills. I start to realize (only after a year of my son's piano practice) how important it is to have a musician specialized in piano as a teacher for my son's continuous development of his piano skills. I am very glad that I have made a wise decision at the early stage. My son always looks towards to the piano lessons at Elisabetta's house and he can get very sad when we have to miss the lessons from time to time. It is still very surreal for me to watch a super active 7 year old boy sitting in front of the piano for hours or listen to the cds quietly for a long time recommended by Elisabetta. Both my son and I are very thankful to the great teacher."
