Music is the food for the soul. It inspires and influences people whether they are musicians or not.
I started playing the piano when I was 10. My parents took me for piano lessons to introduce me to music and see whether I’d like it. Well, I loved it! I have been playing since then and music has become part of my life. I have been taking piano lessons with 3 different private instructors. My recent private piano teacher is a student of Iran’s most well-known pianist and composer, Emanuel Malek Aslanian. My focus area is classical piano music. Some of my favorite composers include Beethoven, Chopin, Liszt, Mozart, Schubert and Bach. However, I enjoy music from all over the globe and love discovering new musical styles and pieces I can play !

When I was little, I begged my mom to let me play the piano. At age 5, I started taking lessons at my school. As my passion for music grew, I began composing and at age 11. I wrote my first complete song. Continuing to study and compose music, I completed nine years of California's Certificate of Merit music program, and for several consecutive years, I was selected by the Certificate of Merit judges to perform in multiple honors recitals. I have also been singing all my life and have been formally trained in voice. Being able to sing and accompany myself on the piano has been very rewarding, and I hope to help others to do the same! In addition, I graduated with a Bachelor's of Arts in Psychology with concentrations in Ballet and Literature from the University of California, ...
I am a Classical trained Pianist who has graduated with Honors from MiraCosta College with an A.A. in Piano Performance. I am able to teach anyone from a beginner to early advance (roughly college freshmen level) playing. I specialize in phrasing, "Classical" nuance, and Music History. I strive to incorporate these three elements into my lessons to create a cohesive "Classical" sound.
While I do specialize in Classical piano, I can also teach basic Jazz chords and voicings and nearly any other style of piano you may want to learn.
Hi everyone! My name is Ryan C and I am 22 year old pianist. I perform, compose, teach.... you name it! Essentially, I do all things music.

I believe that everyone can not only succeed at playing an instrument, but they can flourish and greatly enjoy the learning process itself. I strive to make the learning process as enjoyable as possible by bringing digital tools, interactive learning techniques, and a great attitude to every lesson.
My teaching style has been described as patient, gentle, yet straight forward and to the point. This unique combination of traits allows me to identify exactly what needs to be worked on in lessons, yet communicate it in a ...
