"I have finally found a music instructor that hits the right chord! Unlike most teachers I have had in the past, Isaac intuitively understands what I am looking to accomplish and has thoughtfully laid out a program to help me reach my goals. Isaac's teaching methods combine the theoretical, physical, emotional and mental aspects of music in a way that is both fun and highly digestible. Through Isaac's guidance, I have gained a deeper understanding of the fundamentals of music which has in turn empowered me to play types of music sooner and better than I thought possible. Whether its classical, R&B, blues or popular classics – its all connected and Isaac brings these connections to light in a laid back, fun and personal way."

" Isaac Raz has taught our children piano for over three years. Our son began piano lessons at school and we first worked with Isaac over a summer as a way to continue with piano instruction while school was not in session. However, we quickly realized how much more enjoyable and productive the lessons were under Isaac’s tutelage and switched to having our son take lessons year round with Isaac. When our daughter observed our son being taught by Isaac, she asked to take lessons with him as well. The progress both have made under Isaac has been phenomenal. Isaac knows how to inspire our children with a variety of song styles, fun practice drills and is even teaching them music theory at a very young age. They truly look forward to Isaac’s weekly visit."

"Isaac has been my daughter's piano/voice teacher for the past 5 years. He is not only an extremely talented musician, but a nurturing teacher and role model. He encourages his students to go above and beyond their comfort zone. Issac truly develops a "sacred" bond with his students and tremendous trust. He is is also very fair as far as makeup lessons. I highly recommend Isaac Raz."

"My teenage son has had classical piano training of 6 years and is currently studying music composition with Isaac. He has taken lessons in music composition with several teachers, Issac turns out to be the teacher he loves the most. Being an accomplished composer himself, Isaac has a unique way to connect with my son - from Classical to Jazz to Dub Step, Issac always encourages him to sincerely express inner music. Within a short period of time, my son built up a portfolio of compositions. With Isaac's recommendation, my son is now applying to Boston University's Young Artist Music Composition Summer Program."
