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 a year 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.

Ryan is so great with my 6 yr old son. He is very patient with him, and even though we are having our son learn piano for now, his ultimate goal is to learn the guitar. With Ryan knowing this about our son, he also allows him to strum the guitar every so often so that it reminds him how his piano lessons will ultimately pay off in the end. Ryan is super great with kids! I highly recommend him to anyone.

Ryan is an amazing Piano teacher! My son is 7 and requires a lot of patience and redirection, and Ryan is very good at keeping him on track. We had to switch teachers after the previous one was not a good fit for my son's strong personality. I highly recommend Ryan if your child is easily distracted and strong willed. :)

Ryan is amazing with our 5 year old daughter and 7 year old son. His level of patience in teaching such a young age group really shows. The lessons are fun and age appropriate. He manages to keep their attention and teach them at the same time. My daughter loves when he lets her compose her own silly sings, not knowing that while having fun she is actually learning the piano. And my son who struggles with attention is able to complete the lesson and retain what he has learned because of Ryan's methods.
Ryan is also very professional, timely and flexible with our schedule.

Great and Encouraging!

Ryan is a great instructor. He is encouraging and definitely brings out the best in my 8-year-old girl. She absolutely enjoys her classes and looks forward to it every week. And she practices on her own because she wants to be prepared for the next class. I'm glad he's teaching my daughter :)
