Experienced musician with 13 years available of performance experience and 4 years of teaching experience. I am eager to teach students of all experience levels and ages! I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation of musical technique. I specialize in Jazz, Rock and Afro-Cuban music.

For literature I use the Podemski Snare Drum Method, Music Minus One, Vic Firth Snare Drum Method, and Wilcoxin.

About Ryan S.

Born in 1994, Ryan Sands is an up-and-coming artist hailing from Orange, CT. He’s had the pleasure of performing alongside incredible musicians such as Phil Markowitz, Dominique Eade, Christian Sands and George Garzone just to name a few. He’s played at various venues in the United States and around the world. Some of those venues include Green Mill in Chicago, Blues Alley in D.C., Blue Note Milano in Italy, Duc De Lombard in Paris, and Jazzhus Montmarte in Copenhagen.

For the past 5 years I have been teaching private drum lessons and group lessons. I have taught at Neighborhood Music School in New Haven, CT and internationally at the iSchool of Music and Art in Shanghai. The students that I have taught have went to win competitions and study music on the collegiate level.
