Teaching Philosophy:

As an instructor, Riley aims to provide students with the tools to succeed: a concise, yet all encompassing understanding of the fundamental techniques, concepts, and creative methods that have been most helpful in his own musical path, while maintaining the utmost consideration for the personal goals and musical pursuits of the student. In addition, Riley considers it highly important to take into account the specific learning strategies that work best for each particular student in order to utilize lesson time as effectively as possible.
