Ryan is very encouraging, patient and detailed. First session he showed a lot of patience and really took the time to teach me everything I needed to know as a beginner.

Ryan is just fabulous. Not only does he teach all sorts of styles of guitar, he also teaches drums and ukelele. He teaches good technique and great theory on the guitar and shows great patience. He never gets frustrated and is always understanding. When I've written songs, he's helped me figure out the missing piece to the song, whether it was a chord or particular melody or riff. As a music teacher myself, I can say Ryan is a fabulous teacher.

My son is 11 years old and never played before. He has really been enjoying his lessons with Ryan.

I have been taking guitar lessons from Ryan for five months now. Within those five months I have learned to use several techniques on the guitar. Ryan has also taught me about other instruments which has resulted in my guitar skills to be a lot better. Currently we are working on my rhythm by using the drums. Feeling the beat of the drums helps me with my rhythm. Ryan does not only uses drums but other instruments too. To help connect the instrument you came to learn on. Over all Ryan is are great teacher and I have learned more in five months than I did when I tryed to learn myself.

My daughter Daniella began guitar lessons shortly after the new year. Ryan is just great! He is patient and explains the proper techniques and fundamentals of guitar so that it is easy to understand and follow. What is also so great about his guitar lessons is that he listens to the student in regards to what kind of music they like and what they would like to learn how to play. Daniella has both an electric guitar and an acoustic guitar and has learned so much from Ryan!

Ryan is wonderful with my 8 year old son. He is flexible and easy to work with. I love that he has my son playing songs rather than just learning notes on his guitar. We are very pleased!

Ryan is a very patient instructor. Im much older than he is and stubborn and set in my ways and hes been there every class to show me something new and give that extra push you need as a student. I've recommenced him to several friends that just need to stop being lazy and get over to his studio. His studio is awesome. it has everything you could ever need. A huge selection of instruments that you can take a detour on from the regular class.cant forget to mention the air conditioning is great. I look forward to every class even though I have a insanely busy hectic life

Ryan has been teaching our son since January, and we have been very happy with him! He is very knowledgeable and does a great job teaching in a manner that my 8-year old can understand. He is very patient and encouraging, and we are thrilled to have found him!
