The piano is a wonderful instrument with an incredibly versatile range of abilities. In piano lessons, I'll provide guidance on the key aspects of playing the piano: interpreting a piece of music accurately and with artistic expressiveness, improving technical ability, learning methods for efficient fingering and effective pedaling technique, developing greater control over emphasis, dynamics, and timing. If you are a beginner and aren't sure what all those things mean or if they would apply to you, that's fine too. I also offer introductory instruction on how to read music and get started playing the piano. I offer instruction in many styles ranging from classical to jazz to rock to really almost anything. I also offer lessons in variety of musical topics: composition, songwriting, improvisation, ear training, music theory, arranging, and music production (technology). If you are interested, please check out the information on these other subjects by clicking on the link at the top of this profile. I believe in developing a broad base of musical knowledge and ability. All of my students, study a range of the above topics to ensure a synergistic and comprehensive foundation. However, I also encourage students to pursue their individual desires and inspirations. On the first lesson with a new student, I'll always go over the options for potential areas of study and work with the student to develop an appropriate course of study customized to their needs and interests. Cancellation Policy: Please cancel lessons with as much advance notice as possible. Lessons that are cancelled with less than 3 hours notice will be considered "missed lessons," and will be charged full price. If you do not arrive to a lesson on time and do not contact me, I will wait at least 15 minutes.

Ryan is working with my 9 year old daughter and is wonderfully patient and kind with her. He is also very polite and prompt in his communication with me. He seems extremely knowledgeable and talented. I think we are lucky to have found him!
