Ron Levy is a composer, pianist, and educator.
He composes for all instrumental forces, from solo piano to large orchestra.
His approach to piano is based in the classical repertoire, and finds fullest expression in jazz.
He teaches both classical and jazz piano, always including a bit of music theory and history into his instruction.
He holds a BA and MA in music composition from UCLA. He studied jazz and electronic music at Orange Coast College, and attended Taubman seminars at Mountain View and Amherst. He also attended Time of Music at Viitasaari.
But let's face it, Ron learned most of what he knows about music "on the bandstand", performing with colleagues who were always supportive and happy to share their wisdom. Thanks colleagues!
