I had my first lesson with Ric last week and it was great! I look forward to my future lessons with him. He is a great teacher as well as a very accomplished musician, composer and many more attributes.

An excellent teacher who loves to see his students excel

Several years ago I was privileged to have Ric contribute his talent to my CD project. He is an amazing musician and a gentleman!

Ric is an excellent teacher and musician who genuinely desires to impart his expertise to those he teaches. He is relevant and experienced. His vast musical knowledge and sphere of influence are a tremendous asset to the music community with years of experience and a sincere attitude that is infectious.

I am highly confident that all Ric's student will be treated with great care and service and I highly recommend and appreciate Ric.
