About Ryan B.

Looking to learn a new instrument or prepare for the ACT or SAT? I can help you accomplish your goals! I provide personalized and affordable online lessons. Online lessons are convenient and effective! 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 also teach ACT and SAT test taking strategies. I can help your student increase his or her test score! I have been with TakeLessons for almost nine 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! Let's talk guitar! Guitar is the ultimate instrument to learn! It is versatile and portable and you can learn quickly, regardless of your favorite style. I teach acoustic and electric guitar. I cover basics, such as chords, scales and solo work. I cover a wide range of artists such as: The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, AC/DC, Taylor Swift and Ed Sheeran. Regardless of your favorite band or style, I can help you accomplish your goals! Piano is one of the most important instruments to learn, especially for children. The benefits are endless. For piano, I teach beginner through intermediate students. Piano is a popular choice because it has a very friendly layout with the keyboard. I use a proven 6 level method to take you from Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star to Ode to Joy! I cover how to read sheet music and cover a wide variety of musical styles! As a kid did you set up pots and pans or pillows and hit them with spoons like I did? Well, then the drums may be for you! You can learn drums with a pair of sticks! Drums are a total BLAST to play, and if you are not one who wishes to read sheet music, then the drums are perfect for you! I cover a TON of different styles, and if you have a favorite drummer, you can learn to play like him or her relatively quickly! I also offer crucial test taking strategies for the ACT and SAT test. I teach proven methods to help your student achieve his or her best possible score! Curious about the effectiveness of online learning? Here's a recent review of my online lessons from Christian: "My son has been learning the drums with Mr. Ryan for almost 5 years. We couldn't have asked for a better teacher! Mr. Ryan is kind, funny, patient, and knowledgeable. I don't think you could ask for any more in a teacher! Due to the pandemic, we've shifted to online learning for the past year and it has been such a blessing to be able to continue our learning. Without skipping a beat, Mr. Ryan has created an effortless way for students to learn online. We highly recommend lessons with Mr. Ryan. It's easier now than ever!" *** 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. My goal is to get you playing along with your favorite song RIGHT AWAY! Drum students will learn timing, fills, soloing and lead drumming. I will also teach you how to play drums along with your favorite song Piano students will learn how to read music, fingering, chords and song performance. *** Specialties *** I love and can play almost every style of music imaginable! Whatever style of music you like, I can help you improve and learn!
