My name is Risa R. and I am excited to begin teaching you piano!
Lessons should be FUN so I incorporate many games into the curriculum.
I treat my students of all ages with love and respect, recognize and celebrate each student’s individuality and specific needs and goals.
I studied piano pedagogy with teachers from Julliard, and Curtis Institute.
B.S. Ed. from Penn State University, M.A. Ed. from La Salle University.
Certified by the American College of Musicians as a piano teacher and judge.
I teach Suzuki ear training method along with traditional note reading - the best, most comprehensive musical learning experience possible. Music theory, technique and an additional 1/2 hour of music tech time are included at each lesson.
Home practice includes a fun, cutting edge piano sight reading app.
Looking forward to meeting you!
