Professional Pianist and Keyboardist Offers Lessons

Cody Ritchey is a professional pianist and keyboardist. He is also a Newmanista living on Savannah Avenue. He is now offering lessons for the first time in awhile. When I asked him what ages he took, he replied: "Any age . . . generally 6 to 99 or so!" That's quite a range . . . just like Cody's resumé.

He has worked with Chuck Berry and fellow El Pasoan, Vicki Carr, performed at the Kennedy Center and Off-Broadway. He plays with Fungi Mungle which was voted the Best Band in 2009. Recently Cody was the Musical Director of the Loretto Academy production of The Wiz.

Faithful blog and e-letter readers will recall when the Ritchey family dog, Emma, went on a little adventure but was fortunately found by a neighbor.

Cody gave me this flyer announcing his piano and keyboard lessons for anyone - generally 6 to 99 or so in age:
