Hey There! My name is Ryan B. I play and teach guitar, bass and drums, and piano and would love to teach you or help you improve your abilities! I have been playing all four instruments for 20 years, and I have a personal, laid-back style that helps connect with each student.

I have been with TakeLessons for over three years now, and am truly blessed to have worked with so many great students.I will teach you what YOU want to play, regardless of style or genre you like in music. I design my lessons around YOU, and what YOU want to learn!

For guitar, bass and drums, I can teach the basic beginner to the advanced. I teach electric and acoustic guitar, electric bass and acoustic and electric drums

For piano, I teach beginner levels only.

*** Lesson Details ***
Students can expect my lessons to focus on your goals. I cover a lot of fundamentals and basics to start, and then go through more advanced techniques as the student progress. In a short period of time, you will know chords, notes, techniques, rhythm and timings, just to name a few!

Guitar students will learn basic chords, barre chords and soloing techniques. Bass students will learn bass notes, bass lines and soloing.

Drum students will learn timing, fills, soloing and lead drumming.

Piano students will learn how to read music, fingering, chords and song performance.

After a month of lessons, I feel more qualified to rate our experience with Ryan. He has been great with my son. He is positive and encouraging all the time. My son is progressing well and is happy with Ryan's teaching style. He has enjoyed being able to learn songs that appeal to him too.I would highly recommend Ryan.

This was my son's first lesson. He really liked Ryan. I would have given 5 stars but it's hard to say he's the best after one lesson. I have no reason to think he won't be a great instructor and my son is looking forward to his next lesson.
