My teaching method is based on communication and fun. For beginners, I would pick up their favorite songs or piece because the first step is the most boring in piano learning. Through the piece, I give you information about how to read scores or how to play pianos.
I have been giving lessons for more than six years. I hold a master's degree in piano performance. I have a variety of students from beginners from professionals. One of my students could play both hands in two weeks.

Ryo helped me many times, most recently with the preparation of my final recital exam. He is a wonderful pianist, musician and a teacher. His lessons always give me inspirations and makes me motivated. We have worked on detailed and technical aspects, musical and creative approach depending on the pieces, historical and cultural backgrounds of the composer and the period, and he also gave me mental and psychological support before the performances. Ryo is a very reliable, patient, caring, bright (not to mention his vast amount of knowledge in many fields!) and hard working person, who allows the student to understand and develop in their own pace, letting them realise the joy of music in every lesson. I have always enjoyed his lessons and learnt many things. I can only recommend him- from child to adult, beginner to advanced, in different languages,....you won’t regret it!
