Hello, welcome to my profile! My name is Richard, nice to meet you! I'm a Dutch (Netherlands) piano teacher and concert pianist with 25 years of experience. Since I started playing the piano, at age 5, I've been passionate about music, and I would love to pass on my huge passion for playing the piano to you!

I hold a Master's degree in Music in both piano performance and as a piano teacher. For the past 25 years, I have been teaching piano lessons (both individual and group lessons) at several music schools in the Netherlands, as well as private piano lessons in various European countries and Mexico.

As of now, 2024, I'm available full-time for private piano lessons at your home or a public place, but 'm also open to teaching online, if you prefer so. I speak fluent English, Spanish, German, and Dutch, so I can teach in all of these languages.

As a piano teacher, I have extensive experience with students of all ages and levels, as well as different music styles.

As a concert pianist, I have made numerous concert tours as a soloist and played with renown orchestras in several countries, including Germany, France, the Netherlands, UK, and United Arab Emirates.

Furthermore, I won prizes in several prestigious piano competitions, made various TV-, radio and album recordings, and attended masterclasses with world-renown pianists such as the American master pianists Murray Perahia and Emanual Ax.

I would describe myself as someone how is friendly, patient, organized, efficient, flexible and passionate about music.

I believe that my passion for piano, my extensive knowledge and experience as a piano teacher and concert pianist, combined with my excellent communication skills and my inspiring teaching style, are some of the key ingredients of great piano teaching.

My piano lessons are for students of all ages and levels, who would like to learn or improve their piano playing. Although my background is in classical repertoire, I also have experience in teaching popular and film music, among other types of music. I love all kinds of music, and I'm definitely open to teaching you how to play your favorite songs.

I work with some of the best piano methods to achieve optimal learning outcomes. Inspiring the student and developing their natural musicality are crucial factors in this process. My lessons include learning and improving piano technique, reading sheet music (if not already mastered), playing by ear, music theory, musicality development, and fostering enjoyment in playing this beautiful instrument.

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or doubts. I look forward to hearing from you!

    I have been receiving piano lessons from Richard since November 2019 and have found him to be an enormously encouraging and patient teacher. He explains things clearly and simply, is generous with his time, covers lots of ground without ever rushing and gives me lots of feedback and plenty to work on in between lessons. I feel as if I’ve made a lot of progress during just a couple of months and really can’t recommend him highly enough.

    Ive been receiving piano lessons from Richard for 7 years, and I have to say that this piano teacher has been really amazing to work with. He is a friendly guy and a very patient, positive and enthusiastic teacher. His piano lessons are well-prepared and very inspiring. Richard honestly exceeded my expectations. I would recommend Richard to anyone who wants to learn to play piano, improve their level or technique, or develop their musicality.

    Ive known Richard for 15 years, having initially met him in the Netherlands, where I began taking piano lessons under his guidance. Richard is not only an exceptional pianist but also an incredibly kind, modest and patient teacher. I am confident that you would enjoy working with him.
    Additionally, he has been giving piano lessons to my kids, and Im very impressed by the way he motivates my children and continuously enhances their level, both technically and musically, while making the learning experience enjoyable for them.
    I believe that, with many years of teaching experience, he masters the skills to instruct students of all levels, ages and music styles. I highly recommend Richard for piano lessons, whether for adults or children, and for any level or music style.
