About Richard

John Worth
Richard
Music Teacher, Expert
Location: Greenwich, CT
Speaks: English
Instructs: Piano
Education: Trinity College, Hartford, CT BA Trinity College, Hartford, CT MA
Performance Experience: Four Seasons Hotels, Trinity Episcopal Church, Trumbull, CT
Teaching Experience: I have 20 years experience teaching piano to students from age 5 to adult, and novice to intermediate. I have taught many students in their homes and also remotely. I work with a broad range of music from jazz to classical to pop to new age.
Teaching Philosophy: In each lesson, I try to teach a student fundamentals of piano--reading music, chords, arpeggios, harmonizing treble and bass notes, chord progressions, improvisation techniques, etc. However, I also emphasize that students should have ample opportunity to play the type of music that interests them. Often these selections provide motivation to practice and offer the satisfaction of learning a piece of music that a student will want to play over and over again.

Get to know Richard

I began learning to play piano as an adult and have continued playing for 25 years. While I initially began the piano to play jazz, I also wanted to learn classical music and New Age. Therefore I learned the piano from several instructors who played with their own groups, wrote music for commercials and performed in front of a variety of audiences.  Since I have taught many different subjects and enjoy teaching, I began teaching piano to children as well as adults, emphasizing that they try to enjoy playing the piano as much as possible.
