“Timothy Rausenberger is a wonderful teacher of music. He brings with him a true love of music, a command of the complexities of performing, and a dedication to seeing his students succeed. Mr. Rausenberger's knowledge of music and musical instruments is comprehensive and indeed, remarkable. His students constantly rank among the top performers in the county, regional, and state activities. They all share a love of music.”
-- Dr. Christian Wilhjelm, Music Director and Conductor, New Jersey Wind Symphony (formerly Ridgewood Concert Band)
“I had the great pleasure of working with Tim Rausenberger in a private setting for about five years. I can honestly say that I would be neither the musician nor the person I am today without his expert guidance and tutelage. Tim encouraged me to pursue music professionally, and he assisted me tirelessly as I acquired the skills and résumé necessary to achieve this goal. Tim is so much more than a teacher: he is inspiration, he is dedication, and he is a friend.”
-- Ian Vlahovic, Music Education Major, Mason Gross School of the Arts (Rutgers University), Class of 2013
"We met Tim Rausenberger when our daughter was in fourth grade. His enthusiasm and teaching style motivated her to perform her best and instilled a love of music that she has brought to performing ensembles in college. Tim's knowledge and work ethic guided her to achieve a seat on French horn in numerous honor bands and ensembles, including Region, All-State, and All-Eastern Band. His friendly and professional manner make Tim an exceptional educator."
-- Vicky and Michael Galow, Mahwah, NJ
“Tim is a wonderful teacher! His passion for music, his humor and flexibility, and his warm and caring nature are the perfect attributes for my two children. Being a great mentor and an inspirational musician, he has made my children confident and comfortable with their musical abilities (even though one is a beginner, the other more advanced). A definite 10!”
-- Patty Drum, Montvale, NJ
"Mr. R meets students where they are and knows what they are ready to tackle next. He teaches both of our sons who are very different levels (and are very different kids). Both of them receive more than crafted, individualized lessons on flute, oboe, voice, music history, and music history; the nurturing provided by Mr. R gives them poise and confidence as well. He motivates each of them to do their best... and they want to do their best for him. With Mr. R's preparation and advice, our older son was accepted to the Music Advancement Program at Juilliard and the New Jersey Youth Symphony Orchestra....can't beat that for a recommendation!"
-- Beth and Rob Mejia, Mahwah, NJ
