about Us

Riko Method is a complete piano course for first year music students. It is designed to give students a compact, systematic, and detailed introduction to music making. Our lessons focus on accelerating basic piano fluency by using our pianobook, music theory workbook, musical playing cards, and beautiful classics by Friedrich Burgmüller. Our lessons are fun, with the serious goal of building and developing a musical and analytical mindset. We believe that the first few months of study are critical to the journey towards becoming a true musician. We believe in supporting students’ potential no matter how ambitious they might be. We believe in demanding intellectual communication with our students of all ages simply because they respond.
