"A gorgeous, sumptuous, celebration of birth and rejoice!"
"An American in Paris shimmers with a kind of magic..."

"...in a word, spectacular. From his commanding opening to the riotously jaunty ending, Mr Wong dominated the concerto with forceful sonority and technique to burn.”
The Epoch Times
"....attention to detail and artistry...electrifying performance of the ‘you had to hear it to believe’ nature."
"Considerable youthful fire and moments of real artistry."
New York Concert Review
"Pure elegance and magic on stage.”
Birgit Matzerath Concert Review
Saying we are grateful for finding Raymond for my son as a piano teacher is an understatement. He is one of the most generous and gifted teachers, and he challenges him exactly the right amount. Ray’s ability to individualize his lessons to accommodate the learning styles of each of his students is magical. My son leaves each lesson feeling accomplished, motivated, inspired and happier than when he walked in.
"Ray's teaching is methodical and yet interesting and fun. His lessons are intellectually engaging. He weaves music theory and history into his lessons. He emphasizes good techniques and habits, as well as musicality. I can't recommend him enough as a piano teacher for both kids and adults."
"Ray is an exceptional piano teacher and an amazing human being. Ray has helped my daughter flourish as a budding pianist by building her confidence, pushing her ever so little and helping her develop her own personal touch in musical storytelling. Ray also has an amazing way of teaching piano technique, making it fun and challenging, and never to be compromised in favor of playing. Ray is the complete package - highly recommended!!"
"Before meeting Ray, I could barely read or understand even the most basic music concepts. Now, a year later, I have improved both my piano technique and my understanding of music. I could not be more pleased with what I have gained from being Ray's student."
"My daughter's playing has developed dramatically. Her control of the sound and interpretation has grown daily. She no longer just plays the notes - she now plays music. She has grown in confidence, artistry and technical mastery since studying with Ray."
"Dr. Wong transformed our unruly 7 year old into an elegant piano player. He's demanding but does a beautiful job of making learning to play fun and enjoyable."
