Rick Poling:
Rick began playing piano at age 6 “by ear,” and formal lessons were boring and slow in comparison to the music he could play once he heard it – so lessons were soon abandoned.  He began playing in rock bands at age 10, and throughout his teenage years, he continued playing in bands and independently studying music theory while advancing his ability to play whatever he heard, including the music he heard “in his head.”
