Teaching since:

Music is one of the most powerful tools that a person can wield. Music can teach us unity, strength, intelligence and compassion. It can be a guide through the human experience, it can give us company, it can give us empathy, it can give us focus and drive and most importantly, it can give us purpose. Music is a universal language without boundary. I have been playing, writing and performing music for over 25 years. I have recorded guitar and bass on several full-length albums and I have played over 200 live shows. I have studied music, music theory and music business. I love to teach music because it allows me to share my passion. Being able to inspire through music and help others discover a passion of their own brings me a sense of contribution to this world. My goal is to give my students the tools and confidence to become independent and self-sustaining musicians.

Ryan was very professional and very informed. He was able to help my 7yr old son learn basic open cords and the beginning of Metallica’s enter sandman. I would definitely recommend him super patient.
