Very professional and friendly as well as welcoming. Johnny worked very well with my niece and kept her engaged while teaching. Loved watching the lesson and can't wait for next week! Highly reccomend him for piano or cello.Mar 8, 2017Verified
My son played cello for 9 years and he left for college and doesn't play his cello any more, so I decided to start taking lessons. I was little nervous. Johnny contacted me right away. He was very nice and answered all my questions and concerns. I just had a first lesson with him. He is very talented and good to explain the posture and holding a bow. He is very friendly and fun. I am glad that I found a great teacher near my house. I am very excited about my lessons with Johnny!Aug 2, 2018Verified

Johnny is an excellent teacher, and we’re very happy we found him! He clearly knows what he is doing - he pays attention to the details and guides with gentle but persistent correction when needed. I would highly recommend him.Aug 1, 2018Verified

- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Johnny Rice is a young Polish-American musician. Both he and his brother Chris are accomplished artists as pianists, and also as cellists. They have performed extensively in the United States, in New York City, including their Carnegie Hall debut in 2014, and in such places as Chicago, Cleveland, Los Angeles, and in many parts of their native southwest region of the United States. Internationally, they have performed in Warsaw, Poland, where they were the featured artists at the June 2014 World Music Day celebration; Vienna and Salzburg, Austria; Munich, Germany; and Budapest, Hungary. Between the two of them, Johnny and Chris have been soloists with The Phoenix, Scottsdale, and Mesa Symphonies, as well as The Symphony of the Southwest. Their Carnegie Hall debut in 2014 followed each having been named a gold medalist at an international Chopin piano competition. The Rice Brothers feature a unique blend of classical music, Gospel, jazz, ragtime and boogie-woogie, along with a historical perspective of the great composers and the times in which they lived. They have performed in the widest range of settings, including concert halls, churches, schools and house concerts. Their performances and presentations have been enthusiastically received by audiences of all ages and from all walks of life. They are committed to the expansion of the audience for classical music, and toward this end, spend a great deal of time reaching out to members of younger generations. Johnny and Chris have studied in the private studio of Robert Hamilton, Steinway Artist and Professor of Piano at Arizona State University. In 2014, they pursued advanced studies in Europe with Johannes Kropfitsch, Director of Piano at The Vienna Conservatory. They were long-time students of Taki Atsumi, Professor of Cello at Arizona State University and, for 35 years, President of the American Cello Congress. They have worked in master class and more extended settings with artists such as cellist Mstislav Rostropovich, and Philip Kawin, Professor of Piano at the Manhattan School of Music.
- What types of customers have you worked with?I have worked with students ranging in age from about 5 years old to adult. I always try to work with a particular students specific goals and needs, and to foster an interesting and enjoyable atmosphere during lessons! As a former homeschooled student, I grew up with a great deal of attention on the importance of an individualized educational program, and I am very comfortable working with students from a wide variety of educational settings and approaches.
