About MeHi! My name is Risa. I started learning classical music 17 years ago, and stayed in lessons for about 3 years. Although I stopped taking piano lessons, I continued to pursue learning music theory while I joined guitar lessons. I stayed in guitar lessons for about 2 years, and then decided to start taking vocal lessons, which I took for about a year. Over the last 17 years in my journey of playing music, I have been on multiple music teams, trained by classical pianists and recording artists. I began teaching piano and guitar lessons about 10 years ago. 4 1/2 years ago, I attended Christ For the Nations Institute where I studied music and technical arts. After graduating, I accepted a position as the music director at a church in New Orleans. In this position, I gave piano lessons, guitar lessons, and directed the music on the team, as well as coordinated the band.

"I have known Risa E. for nearly 10 years as her employer, direct supervisor, and friend. She is a person of the highest character and strongest work ethic. I've always know her to be a self-starter. She follows through with what she starts. Since I have known her, she has trained and helped dozens of musicians improve or develop their skills. She takes music seriously, and she has shown her ability to teach others that same skill and passion. There is literally no one that I could recommend any higher than Risa E."
