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 F.

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 or not the student wishes to learn to read, I place a lot of value in scales, intervals, chords, and other core concepts that help us better understand any style of music. It doesn't matter if you are learning to write, improvise, or just learn music more quickly; once you grasp the theory, anything is possible!

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.

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.

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!

Ryan is my daughter’s piano teacher, and she looks forward to her lessons every week with him. She is 10 years old. He focuses on ear training, and site reading with note recognition, as well as rhythms and time signature, but he really delves deeply into the theory of music with her, something not all piano teachers would do with the 10-year-old. When she joined a band at school, we found out that she truly understands the structure of the key signature, and how to count out 16th notes!! Very impressive :-). Feel free to contact me anytime for further questions, I would give him my highest recommendation.

Ryan is my favorite music teacher ever! He genuinely cares about my musical progress and has developed an effective lesson plan that’s making me reach my goals. He’s extremely nice and a musical genius who’s simplifies complex concepts to make them easily learnable. I can’t believe how much progress I’ve made thanks to him. I whole-heartedly recommend studying with him.
