Ricardo graduated from Harvard University with a degree in Liberal Arts & Sciences with a concentration in Music. He first began teaching music to middle school and high school students at the age of 16. After college, Ricardo joined an indie band called the Boondock Brothers and a film-scoring electronic duo called Hominids. Ricardo loves playing jazz, indie, mariachi, classical, urban, and electronic music. Ricardo’s passion for teaching music stems from the beautiful realizations that each student makes, the connection between musical and personal student growth, and the power it has in making a student’s day better.
