Theodore Libby, critic of the New York Times: ...an overwhelming talent... a rare combination of virtuosity and profundity... the cumulative effect was simply transcendental.

Comments from Westcott's portland piano students
I only wish I could’ve met him years ago.
Mark is a phenomenal pianist and a teacher.
...Most clear, and most informed.
Not only was Mark a world-class pianist, but he is a dedicated and caring teacher.
My friends and other musicians are amazed at the progress I've made thus far.
He makes even his youngest students sound like budding professionals.
