Ryan Crosthwaite Piano
About this pro
I am so glad we found Ryan for private piano lessons for my son. My son tried group lessons but never seemed to have enough instructor time and became frustrated with how it was taught. Ryan is flexible with his teaching methods as to mesh with how my son learns to play. My son enjoys and looks forward to his lessons each week. I highly recommend Ryan for private piano lessons- JOApr 6, 2018
Ryan was incredibly helpful and thoughtful when I contacted him for guidance for my 19 year old son’s next step in piano lessons. He took the time to understand Jake’s playing level and needs in order to advise us on the best options for him. A true professional.Mar 11, 2018Verified
Ryan has been a great teacher for my 9 year old daughter. At the first meeting he identified a few bad habits she had and wasted no time correcting them. He is punctual and professional, firm but not demanding. My daughter really enjoys her time with him. Highly recommend.Dec 17, 2017Verified
Ryan is extremely personable and easy going. For myself at least, I saw improvement after only a couple lessonsOct 15, 2017Verified
Just had our first lesson with Ryan and we are so happy that we used Thumbtack to connect with him. He is super engaging, fun, current, professional, confident and very talented. It is obvious that he has a passion for music that is instantly contagious. Definitely a great find for us.May 11, 2017Verified
