Ralph has been teaching piano to my children for 12 years, and is a wonderful teacher! He started with my son, who is now in college, and continues with my 15 year old daughters. He is skilled and knowledgeable, and is patient with his students. He has always been an instructor who motivates, and has instilled the love of music in my children to the point that they walk over to the piano and play to relax and entertain themselves. I would recommend him highly to anyone, young or old.
