Ryan is an experienced teacher who believes in being able to play as many different musical styles as possible. He welcomes students of all ages and specializes in the beginner/intermediate piano student. Every student is truly different and will receive lessons that are unique to their needs/goals. Not only will you be able to play songs in no time , but you will be building a foundation of music theory, musicianship, and musical versatility. Let's get to it!

About Hankyol K.

I am a high school choir director, pianist, and arranger. I graduated from Mt. San Antonio College for my Associate's degree in Music and graduated from Biola University for my Bachelor's degree in Music Education (Choral Emphasis) and K-12 teaching credential. I am currently finishing up at Azusa Pacific University for my first Master's in Choral Conducting and recently started my second Master's at Teachers College, Columbia University for Music Education. Long story short, I love to learn, especially, because it makes me the best teacher I can be for my students.

Piano students can expect to be given the tools to play in every musical style that they come across. I strongly believe in musical versatility and equip each of my students to be able to play anything from Mozart to Lady Gaga. Students will also learn how to read music (notes and chords), sight read, and accompany themselves or others.

Voice students can expect to receive a strong foundation in classical singing for it carries over best to other singing styles such as Contemporary, Jazz, or Broadway. I believe singing should always feel like it's fun and enjoyable. Students will learn how to sing with freedom and confidence.

I look forward to meeting you and helping you to become a better musician!
