Hi, my name is Leo Ravera, and I'm a lucky man. My greatest passion, music, has become my profession and my life. Playing and teaching are two different ways to share the love of music and the joy of playing the piano.
Maybe you want to start playing the piano, maybe it's an idea you've always had but you think it's too complicated or impossible. I assure you that this is not the case at all, I have many students and friends who have decided to start playing the piano as adults and have discovered that playing the piano is exciting and fun.

If you play an instrument other than piano, you may be interested in courses on reading sheet music, improving your musical ear, learning (and finally understanding!) functional harmony and how to improvise on a jazz standard. Click below and find out about all my video courses.
