I like to craft a lesson plan that revolves around the interest of the student. If you like country but not funk, we'll focus heavy on country and not do any funk. If you want to focus on theory, we will. If you don't want to learn "hot crossed buns" we won't. Let me know the music you like and what you want to accomplish and we can go from there!

Kind, helpful, and attentive - I enjoyed getting to know Ryan very much and despite the fact that first lessons can be a challenge, I feel as though it was time well spent. I look forward to more!

I'm currently a PE teacher at North Dakota Boys and Girls Ranch. I have three main hobbies those being fitness, guitar, and outdoor sports. Guitar has been a passion of mine for years and I have been blessed through my education career to get the chance to teach music to children and adults. I still seek to do so hence I'm here. I'm very skilled at making lesson for my students based on individual needs. I keep my price low as this is a love of mine more than anything.

Open and individualized lessons will teach each student in a unique fashion to fit them best. Chords, theory and musical reading will be the main focus of these lessons. My individualized approach works well for many students so that they learn what they want, how they want, and see the results that they specifically are looking for.

Students can expect to learn anything from basic chords to advanced theory and improvisational techniques on their instrument.

As a college graduate with an emphasis in guitar i feel that my mastery over the instrument and ability to teach is is second to none in the area. I feel equally confident in my mastery over acoustic guitar and electric guitar although acoustic guitar is my preferred instrument to teach. As a professional gigging blues/rock/indy musician I have toured while playing all forms of acoustic and rock genres and venues, from jazz to country to blues to classic rock. I can teach you any genre of music or method of guitar playing ...

Mike is a talented player and teacher, with a deep appreciation for the many styles and genres of guitar playing. A lesson with him feels like jamming with a friend. I highly recommend him as a teacher."
