Piano lessons from a professional teacher with BM In jazz studies from Cal State Northridge
Hello! My name is Rich, I’ve been teaching piano for 23 years and it is one of my most favorite things to do. Music did not initially come easy to me, and ever since my college days when ideas started clicking it’s become my goal to help other students easily pass through any barrier, no matter what level they are at. Looking forward to our first lesson! :)
About Rich B.

***About Me*** My name is Rich :) I'm a 32 year old professional jazz musician and teacher with a BM in Jazz Studies from California State University Northridge. I've been playing piano for 23 years. Music did not come easily to me at first! But with some time and persistence, I started making sense of it and have since been obsessed with finding ways to show music to others in a way that is easy to understand. I feel anyone can learn music, whether it be as a casual hobby all the way to a serious career. Either way, music is really fun! I spent a lot of time gigging at bars, restaurants, weddings etc in the 2010s, but post Covid I’ve come to find a deeper passion for teaching. I do occasional music live streams online too. When I’m not playing music I’m a pretty hardcore gamer (video game music is so beautiful!!). *** Lesson Details *** I’m here to help any student learn as many aspects of music as possible that they wish to learn. Our goal together is to build a solid understanding of core musical fundamentals, giving the student a solid foundation on which to build their individually catered knowledge.

Rich was a great and informative teacher! He was able to quickly and easily understand my needs as a player/student and convey understandable and actionable things to work on with my play. Highly recommend!

Rich is both very patient and methodical when it comes to teaching my daughter piano. Thanks to him, my daughter has advanced her piano playing skills exponentially in a short amount of time.

Rich has been teaching my son for over 6 years. Hands down, one of the best piano teachers around. Very reliable and professional. He’s more like family than a piano teacher.
