I went into these lessons expecting to have boring repetitious classes, I was pleasantly surprised when the teacher was a very nice and cool guy that makes learning the piano very easy and entertaining. I learned more in one class then the 3 weeks trying to teach myself. I look forward to more classes and am very glad I chose Ryan Lee ReidOct 30, 2019Verified
I had only one lesson & it went great. I was very impressed about his knowleg of music & playing the piano. He gave me good advise about playing. I recomend Ryan as an excellent teacher.Sep 23, 2019Verified
Ryan is super talented and really helps you understand the piano itself all while making the lessons very fun, interactive and easy to follow. I always look forward to our next session and HIGHLY RECOMMEND himAug 21, 2019Verified
Wow, Ryan Reid is the BEST piano teacher. I was looking for a diverse piano teacher for private piano lessons for adults and private piano lessons for kids. One of my son's is really into not just piano, but also wanted to take jazz piano lessons and piano keyboard lessons. I wanted to learn with my kids and really needed someone who could be patient with me since I had a hard time finding a solid piano teacher for piano lessons for beginners. I didn't think I could find this unicorn of a piano teacher for private lessons for adults and kids, but Ryan Reid delivered. I highly recommend him for piano lessons for adults, kids, beginners, and for different styles- classical, jazz, pop, electronic, and blues. I have an upcoming holiday event and have asked him to perform for it. Thank you Ryan- you've changed our lives and filled it with music that doesn't sound so terrible anymore!Dec 23, 2019Verified
He is a great teacher and he knows his stuff. He takes the time to teach. I have messed up a lot and he doesn’t get anxious or irritated. He works with me and in turn I get better. He is the first of many teachers who has done that for me. Past teachers have moved too fast of a pace for me and I have not gained anything. He is a great teacher who slows it down and works at your pace with the benefit of learning and moving forward. I look forward to the next lessons from him.Oct 29, 2019Verified

- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?First, I want to know about you. What are your goals you wish to accomplish? Whether that pertains to: -Piano/composition/music theory lessons -Audio production assistance to make a demo tape for distribution to agents, social media, or a press kit. -A solo musician/duo/trio/quartet/vocalist to preform for a private/company event.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have a Bachelors degree from SHSU and have had the luxury of traveling and performing at both domestic and international venues. My classical studies were taught by Yale/Royal College music alum Dr. Clive Swansbourne, who still tours nationally and internationally. My jazz studies were taught by Paul English, who is one of Houston's preeminent jazz pianists, a sponsored Steinway Artist, and former adjunct professor at Rice University. These connections with both local and national artists have afforded me the opportunity to spend time in recording studios through out Houston and abroad to understand the process of audio production enabling me to arrange/edit/mix/master my own works.
