Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: I'm Ryan Lee Reid. I'm a pianist, composer, music teacher, arranger, singer, producer, beat maker, and performer in all things music across all styles ✨. Together, we create a customized program for you based on your goals whether it is to learn one song or the entire music process from idea to production. You can learn a range of musical skills during our sessions- piano, singing, song writing, production, best making, performance skills and more. Sessions can be done either online or in my studio. You also have the option of using Afterpay for interest free installments to make it easier for you to focus on your music or special event rather than worry about finances. To learn more about available discounts, please book a free consult on my site to learn about special pricing for musicians, students, teachers, veterans, seniors, front line workers or those experiencing financial hardships. Music is therapy and the studio's mission is to help heal with music. A limited number of discounted sessions are available to make music accessible to all. I work with a range of different people- professional musicians, people wanting to learn as a hobby or make a career change, and event venues to: - Improve your musical range and workflow; - Start learning piano, singing, songwriting, beat making, or production from scratch, especially when those YouTube tutorials just aren't doing it; - Get back into playing piano from childhood lessons; - Advanced pianists who want to learn other genres or how to improv; - Learn how to play, sing, or perform a specific song for a special occasion, no occasion, or audition; - Compose a backing track or beat to sing your own lyrics or spit your own rhymes over; - Have a versatile musician to perform at a special event; - Simply unleash your inner creative and musician that's been dormant for too long. After decades of learning, playing, creating, performing, and teaching piano, I approach music in a different way I’ve found most effective and enjoyable to my students. I developed a modified Bach teaching method because he was the OG improv musical mastermind 🎹. I make learning music simple, easy, and fun, even when teaching online ✨🎶. I offer lessons in piano, electronic music, song writing, music production, music theory, vocal coaching, beat making sessions, and performances (both live and virtual) 🎶. I created a visual online teaching method for music lessons that has helped my students learn successfully during this crazy covid pandemic 😷! I teach across genres- classical, jazz, funk, R&B, electronic, country, and anything with a groove that makes you want to move ⚡. During our sessions, I break down music into 3 parts like an orchestra or band: bass, harmony and melody. You get to choose the songs you want to play because why spend time learning songs that don’t bring you joy?! By learning music this way, instruments like the piano are unleashed to create anything you want, even without sheet music 🎼👍👊. My method makes it incredibly easy for you to understand, play, and compose your own music 🎼. My methodology transcends genre and ability regardless of if you want to become a classical concert pianist, a jazz improvisational sensation, a pop piano star, a talented trap beat maker or simply just want to play a song you like on the piano. My method has helped my students and me progress in our musical journeys with focus, fun, boundless creativity, and endless possibilities. I teach beat makers, DJs, music producers, and sound engineers piano and music theory specific to helping improve work flow and creating music whether it’s for beats to sell, perform, or songs for yourself or others. I’ve created a different approach for these sessions because you don’t need to become a concert pianist or play like Mozart to sound like one. It’s streamlined and builds on your existing knowledge to optimize your process to help you get where you want to go faster with flexible building blocks that transcend musical medium and genre. Regardless of your ability, what style music you want to play, sing, create, or why you want to learn, I believe it is important that you get to choose what songs you play and what music you want to create. If you’re making the effort to learn music, then I will always make the effort to teach you what you want to learn in a meaningful way tailored to you. As for live performances, I’ve performed locally and internationally, and with safe social distancing. I've been performing at various virtual, zoom, and outdoor events with diligent COVID protocols in place. I have a portable keyboard set up that sounds great for locations without piano 🙌. So if you don’t have a piano or a tuned piano, no worries because I can bring my own...BYOP 🎹🧳✅! I even have a keytar to play some grooves on the move when needed 🏃🏻‍♂️🎶✨💨 I live and love music. I hope to help you experience music in different forms- not just listening to music, but seeing, creating, and transforming it in new ways ✨🎶✨.

Ryan Reid is the BEST piano teacher, audio engineer, music producer and performer! I highly recommend Ryan! He is talented, versatile, and reliable. I've hired him multiple times and have gifted his awesome lessons and amazing performances to other people. He is incredibly experienced, creative, fun, knowledgeable, and makes people feel comfortable and happy. Ryan is truly an expert and professional at piano and audio production. Most recently, he helped my friend reach her goals. She wanted to sing and record some tracks. Ryan gave her music lessons and recorded, mixed, mastered and even did the videography. She was extra happy with the piano performance he added to the tracks. Ryan was also able to provide professional videography to create a making of video in the comfort of a cool home. It's super cool to how he helped her reach her musical goals. Ryan also teaches my son in Brooklyn audio production using Ableton with piano lessons so he can create his own hip hop, rap, and trap beats to sell. My son says he is funny, authentic, and easy to learn from. If you're looking for an awesome, unique, creative piano teacher, music producer, or performer, I highly recommend Ryan Lee Reid. He's so funny and loves music. He is the BEST BEST BEST.

Ryan is the Music MAN. I've learned so much from him. He's taught me piano, electronic music, how to sing and play, production and songwriting. He challenges and inspires me. My mind is blown every time I see him perform and lay down tracks. He's a charismatic brother who keeps me laughing and loving learning to grow as a musician. Keep a space open for me and please don't go Hollywood on me!

Ryan has a wonderfully personable approach! He is also very knowledgeable about classical music and technique directly related to it. I've made more progress with him in the last few months than I have alone in the last few years! Would highly recommend to anyone from beginner to advanced. He really gives effective lessons as a virtually based teacher. Thank you Ryan!
