Greetings! My name is Ryan and I'd love to be a part of your journey in music! I have been a musician my whole life (I'm 38 yrs. old), coming from a very musical family I've had some sort of sound making device at arms reach since I was a child. I've played in many bands, ensembles and theater productions, from Pop to Rock and Jazz, and studied Jazz Performance on Bass and Piano at the University of Colorado, Denver. I love teaching, and have a wealth of experience in creating a curriculum with students and parents which fits their specific aptitude, practice schedule, and desired results. Looking forward to hearing from you!

Ryan is amazing. He worked with my 8yo son both in person and online after the pandemic started... he was the ONLY teacher of any kind that could keep my attention-challenged kid engaged the whole time. I wish I could post a video of my son playing a year ago compared to now... amazing. Ryan was also fantastic at choosing music, and baking in music theory and "drills" so that they felt exciting and interesting to a kid that young. Hands down, a phenomenal teacher.
New material I've never encountered before in lessons with other instructors. Definitely challenging!
