Rory teaches our sons, ages 9 and 12, and has done a tremendous job.  He connects well with the boys on a personal level, and they look forward to learning from him each week.  He has a passion for music and it shows in his teaching style.  He is able to engage our sons with music that they enjoy playing, but he is also one of the most technically solid teachers we have had over the course of the last three years.  I highly recommend Rory as a piano teacher for piano students of any age!

Rory was great. His communication prior to our wedding reception was on target, he was on time and ready to go, and his performance set the perfect tone for our evening. Rory played for over an hour during the cocktail hour of our wedding reception and then during dinner. He was able to blend songs we had on our "wish list" with his own selections, and the outcome was on target and exactly what we had envisioned. We can't say "thank you" enough for Rory's work, and would highly recommend him for any event.

Rory arrived on time and was very personable. Upon arriving Rory fit right into the gathering like he already knew everyone. Rory was a great entertainer and reacted to the party guest requests and enthusiasm. We had a great time with Rory and would recommend him for any gathering! His ability to engage the crowd is awesome especially when playing Great Balls of Fire. We would hire him again for our next large gathering.
