I am a versatile pianist and can adapt to an evening tailored for the customer. I play jazz standards, popular music, classical. Gershwin, Porter, Bach, Beethoven, Chopin, Van Heusen, Elton John, Beatles, Aria Selections AND Movie themes. I also partner with various singers and have a band for a variety of functions including Jazz, R & B, Country and Classical.

I have worn many musical hats. I am foremost a pianist but I also sing, teach, have been musical director, band leader, choir conductor, composer, songwriter and teacher. My band is called Rick and the Malteasers and we handle all kinds of music with a diverse group of very experienced musicians.

I/We do weddings, corporate functions, private parties, holiday events plus a variety of ethnic functions etc

I have a Christmas CD

My current recording project is called "Crossing Boundaries" that will be a set of duets with some of my favorite musicians and singers.

I am an environmentalist and care about the quality of life for all. The prospects for a better future depend on participation from everyone.
That includes caring about air quality, water quality, education, energy choices and self learning. I have written two unfinished books.
One about Energy and the other about learning to play the piano.

We were so pleased with the music provided by Rick at our wedding. It was a beautiful addition to our cocktail reception. He knew exactly what we were looking for from classical to broadway to the latest hits... he even played/learned a new song for us because it was our favourite! Thank you Rick for making our day extra special. Joanna and Giampiero

Rick is a talented, professional pianist. Our guests really enjoyed the extra touch of classiness he added to the evening. He came well dressed, played throughout the cocktail hour and was a joy to have. Highly recommend!
