Never heard myself playing The Lark, so I decided to record it. It turns out sounding like an Erhu (or the Chinese Violin) haha.

Uh Ryan is great. Been doing it on my own for 3 months and can scale and vibrato but knew I needed hands on help. Within just the first two classes he made wonderful critique adjustemnts that caused immediate results. Excited for more.

Today was my third lesson with Ryan. He's easy to follow, and he's patient with me which is great. He's allowing me to go at my own speed, and we are moving right along. He doesn't push, and he's encouraging which helps keep me motivated. He's funny and we get along just great. He played a little for me at my last session at my request, and it brought me to tears. He plays beautifully! I look forward to my sessions.

My teacher Ryan was very patient. He cared about me and about the speed at which I can learn. Ryan was thorough in his instruction and gave me homework. I am so happy to feel I can learn the violin. Thank you Ryan!

Ryan is easy going and approachable. He explains things clearly. Music lessons are fun, not a chore.

Great teacher. He was my music theory tutor, and I was able to skip past two college theory courses within about a week of hour-long tutoring sessions.

From my experience, he works with what you have: he finds your strengths and helps you to learn based on how he believes you'll best receive new information or inspiration. He is able to communicate concepts in many different ways, and always makes sure you understand. He is not long-winded, but communicates the necessary information in a way that is straight-to-the-point, and does not waste time giving his students "busy work," but instead gives them exercises that are directly or indirectly helpful every time. He is a patient teacher, and does not make you feel like you will be left behind. He passionate about teaching and his students, and he does a great job at teaching.
