Richard "Rick" Dewell (born circa 1951) is a jazz piano enthusiast and piano teacher from Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada.

He graduated from Bowmanville High School in 1968 [1]

Since about 1998 he has taught from a heritage building that doubles as his home, 345 Waverley Street, in Thunder Bay, Ontario. It stands apart from other homes, and was likely the former home for the rector of nearby St. Paul's United Church.
