Paul R.

Book Now

Every student has their own way of learning, and I will find that way! The beginner is brought through the traditional, classic method. But then I branch into modern styles, helping the student to find an original voice and perform music that resonates with today's listening audience. Together, we will explore American music that brings the intermediate and advanced student to understand blues and jazz improvisation, as well as composition.

About Paul

Motivation to practice is the key. Working with the parents, I like to make the lesson fun for the student, while getting the student to work hard and to keep them focused on success. Both current and former students and their parents are eager to provide references. I've taught all ages; in mu

I will start by reviewing basics of music theory and counterpoint. The ranges of certain instruments, and how they can be used to create beautiful/effective music. Then we shall begin with writing exercises!
Depending on how many lessons you would like to do we can have a goal that we set every few weeks or so and then continue on from there!

Even before my time at Berklee, I spent years striving to put myself into every musical situation possible. This gave me a multi-perspective understanding that allows me to comfortably advise students of all ages and backgrounds regarding several different instruments, styles, and theoretical concepts.

My favorite part about teaching, regardless of discipline, is the fact that it allows me to keep growing and learning while sharing my experiences to help others do the same. So whether you want to work on jazz, pop, or classical, feel free to reach out, and I will happily customize and create the learning environment that you desire!

About Ryan

I am new to TakeLessons! I am a professional pianist, vibraphonist, and percussionist. I recently graduated from Berklee, where I spent much of my time composing, arranging, and performing. I specialize in Jazz, but also frequently help people learn the arts of classical and pop music. Whether

Highly recommend Ryan!

He will take it whatever speed you like and will teach whatever you need. I have learned new things about music theory as well and he makes learning the piano interesting and engaging.
Charlotte
Ryan is awesome! I am a beginner, and Ryan has been so helpful teaching me the basics of notes, key signatures, rhythm, and many other components of piano and music, and we’ve even delved into some music theory. He makes learning fun and easy, and is also flexible with meeting times and can even do lessons over facetime if you can’t make it to his place. He is so talented and welcoming and will make you love piano even more than you already do.
Justin
I took jazz piano lessons with Ryan and he was a great teacher! He drilled a number of fundamentals such as jazz theory, ear training, and improvising which really helped demystify jazz piano for me. Not only does he have a wealth of musical ability, he is also a very kind and patient teacher. I highly recommend taking lessons with Ryan!

This is a high-quality studio. I strive to help students achieve goals small and large. I believe establishing proper technique and efficient practicing habits early and quickly opens doors.

My goals are:
-Provide a comfortable, encouraging atmosphere that inspires growth in and outside of music.
-Inspire a life-long love of music.
-Provide optional performance and competition opportunities in the community.
-Develop a work ethic that crosses over to other areas in life.
-Most importantly, we have fun at this studio.
