As host of the Saturday Chelsea Market Milonga, Richard began teaching the introductory classes in 2006. From assisting his teacher Carina Moeller, Richard went on to teach introductory and beginner classes at Triangulo. Richard’s milonguero style is the product of the influence of the many teachers with whom he has studied including Carlos Copello, Mario Bournissen, and Willie Feuer. Richard has taught at Milonga Del Encanto as well as University High School in Newark. For the past three years he and his partner Maura Hays have been teaching the Absolute Beginner class that immediately follows The Afternoon Milonga on the last Friday of each month.
