First lesson went well. I was very nervous, but was immediately made comfortable and we got to work. He is already helping me to unlearn some bad habits and take the process logically.

Was struggling, but Michael, in 30 minutes, quickly identified what I was doing wrong, helped me understand some pipe " physics" , took me through a series of note sequences, and in 30 minutes I made more progress than I had using videos, books and advice from other pipers. More than anything, he got me engaged and made it fun

*** Lesson Details ***
My lessons are geared towards a set of goals that are created between the student's wants and my expectations for them to be successful at what the student wants to achieve. For each student, I use a different set of pedagogical tools designed to get them to the goals they want. The main goal I have for all my students is that their fundamentals on their instrument will be at the level that they can complete their goals with ease. Over their time with me, they will have the skills to coach themselves when they practice and tackle any music they come across.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect them to provide and music stand and their music. These are both things that they need to have at their home for practice.

*** Specialties ***
I teach and perform both jazz and classical music. Almost any style that uses a trombone or brass instruments, I have performed in and have a strong foundation in.

I whole-heartedly recommend Ryan as a private instructor. My middle school-aged son had enjoyed learning to play saxophone in his school band, but towards the end of his 1st year was getting bored by the slow pace. After beginning lessons w Ryan (through the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music) his interest, enthusiasm & skill improved dramatically & he began to excel as a musician. Ryan was soon guiding him through more complicated compositions, and the joy of playing was evident every time my son picked up his sax. With Ryan’s training, he learned to prepare for auditions, and as a result has won a seat (and solos!) in several State & city select bands, jazz ensembles and every group his school has to offer.

Ryan’s personality was a great fit for my son. He’s very professional, while being completely approachable, patient & encouraging, and his love of music is passed along to his students. His versatility & broad knowledge of musical genres allow him to introduce new directions for his students to explore. With Ryan, my son studied classical compositions and also deepened his interest in Jazz. The chance to work with Ryan on his improv skills was very valuable to him...it brought a new level of confidence & comfort to his playing.

I would recommend Ryan to anyone looking for a private music instructor, either for themselves or for their son or daughter!

My daughter's school has had 2 band directors in as many years. And while the new director is good, I didn't think he had time for individual students when starting this new job. He was busy with marching band, concert band, jazz band, pep band, concerts, etc. My daughter was frustrated and ready to quit music (band). I choose Ryan to tutor my daughter one-on-one. I'm so glad I did. After only a few months now, but her skills have greatly increased. She shows more knowledge, confidence, and ability than after a whole year of school band! She knows scales and can play songs that her band hasn't started yet. In less than 4 months, she went from barely playing scales and a couple songs to playing almost anything in her music book. She now gets straight A's in band and loves to play. Ryan is very skilled at teaching many instruments. He knows how to explain concepts at the students' level, and makes lessons fun. I would highly recommend hiring Ryan to teach your child.
