About Ricky

Hey guys, my name is Ricky and I'm a three-finger five-string banjoist and bluegrass guitarist from the San Francisco Bay Area. I moved to Boston to study banjo at the Berklee College of music and what an experience it has been! I'd love to show you what I've learned under the teachers at the college.

*** Lesson Details ***
What I like to do in my lessons is make a division between the different styles of banjo playing. These styles can be divided into three fundamentals: Scruggs style, Melodic style, and single string style. We will learn songs that highlight each style individually. The goal of the first lesson is to get you playing bluegrass banjo! The goal of the first set of lessons is to equip you with a couple of bluegrass standards. We will then move onto more ...

First off let me start by saying when I first spoke with Rick I explained that I had recently been diagnosed with a medical condition and requested he be patient with me through the learning process. He has been more than accommodating and he has made each lesson a fun learning experience . I told Rick that my goal was to be able to go to Jam sessions and fit in and be able to play along ,since i started he has been preparing me with a solid repertoire and skill set to be able to accomplish this task. I have been to a few teachers over the years and Rick is the first one that truly gets “it” . I would give Rick a solid “A” if I were to give him a grade if anybody is looking for a great Banjo teacher .

Vasilly is a truly inspired teacher! He is not only completely master of his subject, but is a natural teacher. He is articulate, patient and imaginative and he inspires excitement in his pupil. I hope to work with Vasilly for a long time and I look forward to each lesson with enthusiasm. I am very fortunate to have found him.

Vasiliy was more than wonderful with my son with his piano lesson. he brought out the joy of music with him. My 8 year old is more than excited to practice and continue to learn with Vasiliy. When i asked my son if he enjoyed his lesson he was glowing and stated " he so nice mommy" We feel very blessed to have found him.

Wonderful teacher

I'm so happy to have Vasily as my son's piano teacher. He's very kind and knowledgeable. One quick and important thing I notice about this teacher, He always pays attention to all the details and make sure that the student fully understands the concepts. He's very patient and will not rush through things just because time is up.. Special thanks to Musiclessons for giving the opportunity to meet this excellent teacher...

Im a very positive teacher, believe in encouragement as part of good and confident singing. I m very extrovert and have lots of experience with singers, I did masterclasses, judge the vocal idols, and like a lot to be with singers and musicians. I speak fluently 5 languages. I hold a BA from Lisbon Conservatory and MA from Mannes College of Music in NY and now Im a pursuing my DMA. I believe that for good singing the less effort you make and the engagement of the right muscles will give you a lovely and full sound. Im sure you will have a nice time and enjoy my lessons a lot, come and try!

So many teachers make you take lessons from scratch to see how much you have learned and go over the material again with you to fix errors. It is so boring for me!!! I hate that. I'm sure it works for some people. I like to play my hardest song and then go from there instead! He did no for met. He caught on right away, exactly where I needed help. I didn't waste hours and hours of tedious lessons that I would quit rather than have to do that same material again! Also, he breaks things down that are very complicated, to easy to understand chunks and bits to make it easy.
