As a woodwind specialist, I bring a diverse prospective formed by years of studying and performing on a multitude of instruments no matter what instrument I am teaching.

About Ryan F.

An Ohio transplant in the Southeast, Ryan Fox moved to South Carolina to pursue higher education, but has stayed to enjoy the mild winters, the southern hospitality, and, of course, the great food.

As a bassoonist and multiple woodwind specialist, Ryan brings along with him years of collegiate and professional playing experiences from a variety of settings and genres including participation in concert bands, orchestras, musicals, and operas, as well as playing in classical, Latin and jazz styles. These experiences, paired with a decade of private teaching, allows him to be a well-rounded musician and instructor, offering insight from different perspectives when performing, teaching, and leading masterclasses/clinics. Students who take advantage of these experiences have found success at Solo & Ensemble, auditioned into principal chairs in their school ensembles, youth orchestras, region bands, and placement into All-State.

In addition to professional insights, supplemented with a strong sense of secondary musical basics like ear training and historical relevance, Ryan also prides himself in sharing non-musical ideals with the members of his studio. Mindfulness and wellness are top priorities in managing the stress and strains of not only the study of instrumental music, but also life in general. Skills like responsibility, diligence, time management, and creative thinking are all things that he strives to instill in his students each and every lesson.
