Marvelous instructor for an old student (76). Apparently if you can teach young students, you are best equipped to handle the older students.

Fabulous teacher! My son's taking beginning trumpet lessons. Ryan is patient, attentive, encouraging, and knowledgeable. Ryan is punctual and flexible when rescheduling needs to be arranged. He responds to email, phone calls, etc. in a timely manner. My son enjoys learning from him. It's a pleasure to have him as my son's teacher.
