Hey all! I play 3 different instruments: piano, guitar, and violin! I have been giving private piano lessons for friends and family for the past 2 years. I graduated from Arizona Piano Study Program Graduate with Superiors and perform yearly at Kirks Studio Recitals and events. My piano teacher growing up tuaght me for 7+ years and through him, I disocovered that sharing knowledge with others (especially music) was very enjoyable! Academically, I graduated from the University of Arizona Honors College with a Physiology/Psychology degree this past spring and am excited to help you improve your piano skills and knowledge!
In terms of lessons, I give hourly sessions with either 30min/30min split in playing notes and theory or 60min only playing piano with theory mixed in. It is important to be realistic with goals and I will do my best to accomodate/help you reach those personal goals.
My son loves learning with Ron. We started with him about a year ago, and he has improved with his teaching and has a much better understanding of practicals and theory. Ron is always very patient with him. In fact, he displays calm, confidence and positivity during each lesson. Ron also knows how to help students improve quickly. We are very happy with his teaching style. It is also very convenient as Ron will travel to our house for lessons.
Ron was absolutely fantastic! I have always tried to self-teach myself, but gave up due to the hard nature of the notes and finger placement. Ron was very knowledgeable and was always understanding of my busy schedule working and in school. Favorite tutor!
Ron is very flexible with appointment times and is great with our daughter Isabel who is 12 years old. He is very professional but personal at the same time. It's very clear that he has had a lot of experience teaching and with piano! We recommend Ron to anyone who is looking to learn how to play piano in the Tucson area!
