This was my first ever singing lesson one on one, and it exceeded all my expectations. Ryan was wonderful while scheduling the lessons, and a great instructor all the way through, making the lesson fun and easy-going while helping me improve so much in so little time with great expertise and hints. He even was so kind as to adapt to technical difficulties and answer every question I had. I am looking forward to the next lessons with him!

I signed up for singing classes because I like to sing and to also get over my shyness in singing in front of others. Ryan made me feel comfortable the moment I met him. That’s exactly what I was looking for. I’m very happy he’s my teacher

My first lesson with Ryan was great! We jumped right in and he quickly identified areas for growth. I already sound better! I'm excited to learn all I can about developing my own healthy, natural voice - and Ryan is the guy to teach me! 10/10 recommend.

I took voice lessons with Ryan and he's one of the best voice teacher's I've ever had. He makes sure that you understand the basics of how your voice works before you continue and is extremely patient and so helpful with any questions that you have. After working with him for a few months my voice improved IMMENSELY. Wonderful teacher and would recommend 100%

I took Ryan's TA 141-143 acting series at CSULA last year and I gotta say, not only did I have fun, but I loved the challenge and I learned a lot! Ryan wants you to succeed and he'll gladly help you grow as an actor. You won't regret taking him for acting!
