Richard Wall

Hello, my name is Richard Wall and as a teacher here at Linton-Milano's for over a decade,  I have taught many students of all different ages from children age four to adults in their 70's. There has been a common bond that unifies all students: a drive and wish to learn the beautiful language of music and become fluent in that language. With patience, perseverance and care one can easily immerse themselves in the world of music that is all around us.

As a teacher, I offer a guiding hand and will lead you through this world. You will learn how to read music comfortably, understand how music works and find the innate ability to relax while performing.

After graduating college in 2006 for music theory, studying jazz and classical music, my experience in teaching quickly grew.  After preforming in some local experimental music groups, being a resident DJ at a local nightclub, and now as a music director for a local church, my musical world grew and expanded outside the realm of the academic world. I enjoy continuing my growth as a musician and developing other aspects of myself. In turn, this growth has enabled me become a better teacher.

I look forward to teaching you and I am ready to begin our musical journey together.
