Raphael is 13 yrs. old and in the 7th grade at Hanover Central Middle School.  He began his piano studies at Music of Oz almost 3 yrs ago!  Raphael has a real love of music, is steady and dependable in his practicing and enjoys a challenge!  One of seven brothers, Raphael also has a pet rabbit, Donut, who loves music and has been known to nibble on his piano books.  Math is a favorite subject and he enjoys fund-raising for his church as well.  He recently performed a fun duet of “Piano Man” and in May his great solo number was “Dream On’ by Aerosmith.  Congrats Raphael-we are proud of you! ~Beverly Collom, piano teacher~
