As a teacher, I plan to provide materials for learning basics if needed: memorizing note placement, reading music, learning key signatures, etc. For more advanced students I will provide fun pieces to learn (classical, jazz, etc), work on perfecting rhythm, tone, and dynamics.
My way to teach is by being in the situation of the student. It is easy to tell them , but is important to understand by actually doing it. I understand it can be hard, but I have recently been there.
My teaching method preferably is in person. However, I can also teach piano theory online or in person as well.

Hi there! My name is Ryan and I am a recent grad from UC Davis. I love working with people and want to be able to pass on my love for playing the piano. I cater my methods to each person and depending on what they want to do with the piano whether it be reading music, chord progressions or accompaniment playing.
I cater my teaching style to each individual student. I have mainly taught with the Alfred Piano Mrthod as well as The Suzuki Method, but am also knowledgeable in the Bastien Piano Basics.
My BA in music is from from UC Berkeley, dept of music and my MA from SFSU. I have also had further studies in Paris, France for several years. I have been performing and teaching in the SF Bay,Area for over 25 years. Besides being a pianist, I am also a harpist and flutist and a vocal coach.
I gauge what level the student is and see how he/she learns best. I then devise fun lessons for the students and ensure that the student learns the fundamentals, which I believe provide the foundation for playing any kind of music on the piano.
