Student Reviews




Metairie, LA

I am amazed at how much my daughter has learned in only 9 months of piano lessons. Rick obviously has a gift for teaching and is able to easily convey his love for music to his students.

I highly recommend Mr. Marcell for piano instruction and guitar. Mr. Marcell has been educated and played with some of the most talented and musicians in New Orleans. He is very knowledgeable of all genres of music. Along with teaching traditional methods, he is flexible in allowing each individual student to select songs to learn that may interest them. In the fours years that I have been taking piano from Mr. Marcell, I feel that I have learned to not only play the piano, but, to enjoy playing it. He is very thorough in his teaching. He is also kind and patient to his students.

Rick Marcell is definitely an amazing teacher. I have been going to him for 9 years and I've learned so much. He has patience and teaches you at your own speed. He's nice and knows so much about music and music theory. He's also a very talented teacher and I'm very happy I've been taking lessons from him.
