Introduction: I carefully create individual programs to meet consumers expectations. For seriously oriented students I will provide the best knowledge of European School of Piano Performance for growing up a pianist-professional. It will help them to continue their studying on the college and conservatory level at any college in USA and Europe. For those who will not choose a career in music, my goal is to help each one to develop a love and appreciation of music. I hope that music will be an avenue of fulfillment and a source of joy that will last them a lifetime. I offer harpsichord lessons for beginner-intermed level as well My students will be well-rounded and prepared for the future work

I feel very fortunate to have found Raisa as a piano teacher. I am an advanced adult student who has played the piano for many years and studied with many teachers. I am truly convinced that Raisa is an exceptional teacher – she has an in-depth knowledge of all aspects of the music including styles, historic context, technique, and of course, musicianship. And she conveys this knowledge effectively and often with a great sense of humor. She has shown me how to make difficult technical problems easier (I am playing pieces that I never thought I’d be able to play) and given me a greater understanding of how to analyze a piece of music – always in a manner that makes the knowledge transferable to other pieces of music. What’s most important to me, however, is that I feel that I am always being challenged to reach my personal best. She does not let me settle for “just okay” or “just good”, but encourages me to listen and work out those details in the music that separate the good from the artistic. Because of her, I believe I have really grown as a musician, and even though musically there is so much more for me to learn, each day I know that have achieved my best for the moment – and that is a dream come true.

Finding a good piano teacher is very difficult for an adult who is really serious about wanting to learn how to play. Up until now, most teachers that I have encountered seemed only to be trying to make a quick dollar by exposing me to a few popular songs, the extent of their teaching skills being limited to showing me a few scales. And then came Raisa Isaacs. I've always dreamed about finding a piano teacher who not only possessed the knowledge that I craved, but also had the skills required to convey that knowledge to others. Raisa has taught me that merely sitting down at the piano is not enough. One has to learn about the composers whose music they are attempting to reproduce. One has to be aware of the many different interpretations of music written by the masters, and how to select the best ones. Her obvious enthusiasm serves only to motivate me to learn. So far, Raisa has provided me with a solution to every problem that I've approached her with. I'm sure that had I started lessons with Raisa years ago, I would now be much closer to the level of playing that I am trying to reach! I'd strongly recommend Raisa Isaacs to anyone who is serious about learning to master the piano!

Raisa is an amazing piano teacher. She has moulded my experience in lessons to help me achieve my very specific goals with piano. She pushes me hard and gives me many opportunities to perform in public and at festivals and competitions.
