"Bruce Vogt is not just another piano teacher, nor even merely a good one; his unique instruction goes far beyond the instrument itself to permeate one's entire life and thought. His creative, interdisciplinary approach provides the student with an indispensable variety of tools: the ability to think about a piece as would a conductor, a dancer, a composer, or even a poet or philosopher. If I could, in one phrase, sum up Bruce's goal as a teacher, it would probably be this: 'to make the student an fully independent musician' - and there can be no doubt of his abundant success. Key to cultivating this self-sufficiency is his rare ability to help students believe in themselves and their own, sometimes latent, potential to create music.
A lesson with him is not merely a music lesson, but rather an exploration of all that music means and all it connects to within our lives. In closing, I must mention Bruce's marvelous flexibility as a teacher: his ease in adapting his style to the individual needs of each student."
