I am a singer/songwriter who performs original music, Doo-Wop, Rhythm & Blues as well as Jazz or anything that resonates with me personally. I enjoy all types of music, but have found myself inspired by “era” music of predominately 50’s and 60’s ( including, but not excluding other decades as well). I also perform and collaborate with other artists in my field and pursue work for project based music (exp. Exhibitionist, Party Dozen) to keep the “ Jazz mind set” or “live” art form from dying, and to carry the torch for the great pioneers who paved the way prior to us by making true and genuine music for all to remember to grow and enjoy. May Triumph over adversity be Gods Glory Forever*
I am 2nd Guitarist and Accompaniest for The Alex Ridio Band.
I am a Sound Collective Artist. I perform in The Sound Collective Artist Series.
I was the Singer/ Songwriter Of a project named “Blonde”. I played Guitar, Harmonica and Sang.
I played Harmonica in a Neo-Bluesband called The Leadbelly Blues Band with Great Grandson of Blues Legend “Leadbelly”
I was a bass player and guitarist/ accompanying song writer in this group.
I played guitar, and bass for a church worship group.
I can change your oil..give guitar lessons, ...and make you a T Shirt Too!!! :D
I am certified to change oil LEGALLY, so if you need guitar lessons and an oil change, I can knock out two birds with one stone:)
Ronnie comes to our home to teach our 3 kids piano and guitar. Not only is he talented and patient, he always keeps their interest alive! Ronnie also focuses considerably on musical theory which is often something sorely lacking in musical instruction. Additionally, he's really just a wonderful guy with a great attitude and spirit!+ Read More
We found Ronnie a little over a month ago and are very happy we did! Both boys say he is very good and they are learning a lot from him. The best part for me is the convenience of him being willing to drive to us! Plus he is very helpful when schedules go awry, which they often do!+ Read More
Ronnie is an excellent teacher. I have had a few lessons with him now and I am super impressed at his knowledge of all aspects of music. In addition he is a natural teacher and is very patient. Would definitely recommend him to anyone looking to learn an instrument+ Read More
Ronnie’s a fun and enthusiastic young guy and brings positive energy to his sessions. I don’t practice as much as I should, so any lack of progress is mine. He has a good knowledge of several instruments and musical genres.
So far, very good with kids!
I finished my first lesson with Ronnie today I was impressed by his technical knowledge as well as his teaching ability so far I have to give Ronnie five stars for our first lesson I believe all are further lessons will go as well as our first one
Lots of info on the the blues harp , Jamed out on the 3-4 , took it on a journey, went whaling and brought it back home. Great intro to a new instrument placement breath and intent
Ronnie has been working with my dad who has dementia for the past couple of months and it's been great! He's very good at encouraging my dad to engage and motivating him to continue his guitar practice throughout the week. I can tell he is very knowledgeable/talented in his craft. Ronnie has been very kind, patient and professional, I would recommend him to friends and family~+ Read More
Super patient and friendly. Above all he has a lot of knowledge. He really takes the time to explain everything and answer any questions. He is amazing!!!
Ronny is a brilliant teacher . He teaches you just enough to keep you engaged till the next class .you never lose interest while he's speaking . I've not had a single dull moment in his sessions .
I already LOVE Ronny as my guitar instructor and from playing with him I knew how talented he was with harmonica. So I decided to start lessons with him for just that. I also have my best friend taking harmonica lessons with him! His positive support and analogies connect the dots when it comes to learning a new instrument. I highly recommend Ronny as a teacher! Humble, talented and genuine.+ Read More
He is very engaging, and easygoing. He allows some silliness when a child student may lose focus at times. He's a great instructor for children.
Super supportive and fun! I learned so much already. Can't wait for next week's lesson! :)
Impressed with Ronnie's teaching abilities.
I just recently started electric guitar lessons with Ronny. As a beginner, Ronny's been an excellent choice for getting me started and showing me the proper techniques and behavior habits needed to learn this amazing instrument. I highly recommend!
My husband took my son to his fist lesson and he came back home smiling and so excited. He loved Ronny and my husband liked how Ronny interacted with my son. My son has ADHD and is extremely impulsive but Ronny was able to get him to listen and learn the lesson. We look forward to the next lesson. Thanks Ronny😀+ Read More
Ron is a great guitarist, and his teaching style is very encouraging. He's very patient as well and is good at moving forward with a comfortable pace. Looking forward to more lessons and being able to jam!
lesson went well. At first I was nervous, but Ronny helped me feel comfortable and made my experience better than I expected. He takes his time and explains every lesson that is taught. Can't wait for my next lesson!
Due to schedule conflicts, we didn't continue our lessons with Ron, so the rating might be higher if we had him longer. Ron was so polite, always positive and very enthusiastic. He took interest in my son learning and enjoying playing the guitar. He worked very hard at every lesson to get my son engaged and having a good time playing the guitar.+ Read More
My 12 year old son had his first guitar lesson with Ronny tonight, and it was AMAZING! Ronny was on time...a little early, in fact! He was polite as can be. Such a gentleman.
He was SO patient. I liked how every so often he asked my son if he had any questions or wanted to go over anything again before they moved on. Ronny was very encouraging along the way, really building my son's confidence by pointing out whatever progress he noticed as they played.
One other thing I really liked was how he acknowledged my son's excitement, but gently gave him a reality check by telling him things like "focus on progression, not perfection," and "remember to stay humble."
All in all, Ronny is a Fantastic teacher. I would recommend him in a heartbeat!
