The eyes of the Musicus Practicus possess a unique power: they can see elements, details, and nuances that ordinary eyes cannot perceive.

The Musicus Practicus, in fact, doesn't merely look at the notes as symbols that represent sounds but sees that hidden among those lines, there is a deeper meaning, a thought, and a profound magic.

I am immensely enjoying the lessons with Richardus, as they put me into the mindset of a 17-18th century musician. They help me tremendously in getting closer to my current goal, being able to improvise baroque counterpoint. Even though I studied music at university, I have never received a formal improvisation education. Learning it, however, makes a big difference in terms understanding every bit of the music you play. Improvisation makes you a 'native speaker' of the musical styles you can improvise in. Just imagine the difference between an average person reciting some written text in Latin vs. Cicero doing the same!

I give Richardus my highest recommendation. His knowledge, materials, pedagogy, and customer service are exceptional. I have learned so much from him already and he has taken my knowledge of baroque improvisation and partimenti to a new level. Truly an outstanding teacher!

Richardus is a true musicus. When it comes to learning galant and baroque improvisation you NEED someone who has truly studied this period’s music and who understands it inside and out. But also, when learning music you need someone who knows how to tailor the curriculum to each individual, and find their strengths. Both criteria are fulfilled by Richardus. Not only is he friendly and welcoming but he is also reliable, punctual, and hardworking. You absolutely will learn essential skills, and expand your knowledge under his guidance.
