"Part teacher, humorist, and historian, Rob Kapilow proved once again that this engaging series is as fascinating as ever... ...After 22 years, Rob Kapilow continues to captivate audiences with his vast musical knowledge, sense of humor, and his careful analysis of what makes music such a rich, fulfilling experience." - What Makes It Great, Bernstein at Celebrity Series of Boston, THE SLEEPLESS CRITIC, March 21, 2018

"Kapilow speaks quickly and passionately, generating involvement by sheer enthusiasm. He is skilled at involving the audience, asking us questions, having us sing motives or clap rhythms to show how they’re built up and mutated. He tried to keep from getting too complex and would often stop himself and explain differently. He kept going with the serene confidence that comes from sure knowledge and, more importantly, deep understanding of his topic." - What Makes It Great, Dvorák with the St. Lawrence String Quartet, THE DAILY JOURNAL, October 14, 2017
