About Ryan C.

I am a classically trained pianist and college student who also has experience in playing in the jazz ensemble in high school. My repertoire spans from Classical and Baroque, to Romantic era composers such as Chopin and Rachmaninoff, to ragtime and jazz greats like Scott Joplin and Oscar Peterson, respectively.

In middle school and high school, I played in Lincoln Center (Rose Theater) and Merkin Concert Hall (Kaufman Music Center), both prestigious concert halls in the heart of Manhattan, as a finalist in competitions. During high school, I was also selected as a NYSSMA (New York State School Music Association) All State finalist, with a score of 100 on a Level VI solo out of 6500 students who prepared solos.

Following high school, my passion has been for teaching those around me, including family members, friends, etc., the gift of playing the piano. If you're a beginner looking to finally learn how to play the piano that's been sitting in your living room collecting dust, look no further! If you're currently a student or parent of a student preparing for NYSSMA, I can work with you to bring out your best potential performance for the judge. I have 7 years of experience playing for NYSSMA judges, so I can point out exactly what those judges are looking for, and how you can practice to achieve this. Book your lesson today!

Ryan was such a great teacher to my son, he really helped my son fine-tune his NYSSMA piece and motivated him to practice, something no one could get him to do!
