Hello to all of my future students! I would say my teaching style is that of a chameleon. Maybe you need a teacher who will motivate you to practice. Maybe you need a teacher who promotes discipline. Perhaps you need a laid back teacher who understands your desire to just have fun. Or maybe you need a patient teacher who understands your crazy schedule!
Whatever the case may be, it is my job to try and find a balance between my own musical expertise and the student's personality, schedule, and musical goals.
I have been teaching piano lessons in and around the RVA area for over 10 years. I've taught out of my home, my student's homes, Richmond Music Center, and Skype!
Even though my college degree is in Jazz Performance, I'm also a huge fan of many other musical genres. I compose and produce music for media (commercials, film, tv) for Songwire Studios in downtown Richmond.
Email me anytime and let me know how I can help you achieve your musical goals! Thank you for your consideration!
"We are thrilled to have found a great musical match for our 14 year old son, Matt. Matt was an intermediate/advanced piano student and we had been looking for a teacher to take him to the next level. Bryce is easy going yet has high standards. He makes lessons and learning exciting and interesting to Matt and is challenging him to work more independently as well as more creatively. After every lesson, Matt feels enriched and invigorated. Can't wait to see where this all goes!"

"My son was Bryce's piano student from the age of 9 through 14. During that time, he steadily progressed from learning "piano basics" to intermediate level classical, pop and rock songs. He was also taught to play music "by ear". If you are looking for a reliable, talented & enthusiastic music teacher who has the ability to teach rigorously while keeping lessons fun & laid back at the same time, we highly recommend you give Bryce a call!"

"My 15 y.o. son has been playing piano for several years. He loves it, but with sports, etc it was difficult to find time to practice or fit in a lesson. Bryce has worked with us on our very demanding scheduling needs, but more importantly has instilled in our son a passion to use any free time he has to sit and play. Bryce keeps it fun,exciting, and interesting but most importantly , Bryce has kept the love of playing the piano in the heart of a very busy teenager. If you are looking for a very talented(amazing voice too) piano teacher that will keep your child wanting to play and learn more songs everyday, Bryce is it! "

"Bryce has been my piano teacher for 5 months. He is a great teacher and I am very impressed with his methods and teaching style. I used to play piano when I was a kid but then I took a long break from piano (about 15 years?). Bryce was the one who helped me to retrieve my love to piano. He taught me how to play my favorite songs by Alicia Keys, Christina Aguilera, etc. Any song per my request!:-) Bryce is willing to tailor our lessons based on my preferences. He is a very talented piano player and I am glad that I have a chance to learn from him. Thank you Bryce for all your hard work! Natalie"

"I highly recommend Bryce for music instruction. He encourages my son to explore music and attempt to learn new songs and methodologies. Bryce's gentle demeanor gives my son the space to invent and develop confidence. At the same time, Bryce is hip to video games and other pop culture interests of teens- which keeps Bryce fresh and relatable for Gabe. We enjoy that Bryce shares his own music via the web-it is thoughtful, creative and fresh- and inspires my son to play. Never have to remind my son to practice- he chooses to play, sometimes for hours every day, because Bryce showed him music is fun!"
