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 25 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 through intermediate students.

Need academic help? Well I can help with that too! I tutor in most subjects, including: Math, Science, Reading, Writing Skills and ACT and SAT prep

I offer private in-home lessons, lessons at my studio and on-line lessons!

*** 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.

For academic tutoring, I design my lessons around the specific need of the individual student. I thoroughly research each student needs and customize my tutoring around your child's strengths and weaknesses.

I am an intermediate drummer. Lessons with Ryan have been awesome. He is easy going, laid back but keeps you totally engaged. He is well versed in many instruments and music theory. I'm always looking forward to mynext lesson. I highly recommend him for anyone.

Ryan is an excellent teacher and my son has been taking lessons with him for over a month. He is patient, funny, and passionate about music but also knows how to connect with younger students. He makes class fun yet educational. We always look forward to our classes with Ryan. He has a true love for teaching and music. He is also open to suggestions from me regarding how to teach my son as well which is so very appreciated. We love Mr. Ryan!

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.
