Piano With Rafi
I teach Jazz, Pop, Blues, Funk, Rock, Hip Hop, Rhythm and Blues, and Rock Piano! I also teach music theory!
I just received my BA in Jazz Piano Performance from Clark University, and received the 2020 Manero Award for musical achievement. I plan on pursuing my MM next fall at the Hartt School of Music.
I love playing and teaching music! I find it incredibly rewarding when a student grasps an abstract concept. Playing music is incredibly freeing and expressive, and I love empowering my students to have similar experiences.

Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
I like to get a feel for the student's skill level, and explore what they want to focus on in our lessons.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have a BA I'm Jazz Piano Performance from Clark University, and will be attending the Hartt School of Music next fall for my MM
Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.
I usually ask for $40/hour and $25/ half hour. However, I believe that musical education should be available to all students, regardless of socioeconomic status. Therefore, if you can't afford that rate, we can work something out!
What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?
1) Music should be fun! If you're not enjoying it, you need a new teacher!
2) Don't be afraid to ask questions!
3) It's normal to get discouraged at some point. Just keep practicing, and you'll get through it!
