Richard van Oosterom

My main focus is primary to intermediate learning (beginner to Level 8) borne primarily out of being a stay-at-home Dad. Teaching my own children gave me the love of teaching young persons that I now have. I could go as far as to say that teaching piano is by far the BEST job I have ever had. It is a privilege, an adventure and an education in itself all rolled into one. I am currently balancing this with online studies for an MA in Songwriting and Music Production. While teaching piano, I also teach analysis, composition and theory up to graduate (Masters) level.
