Great first lesson. Learned new methods to improve bowing. Looking forward to the next lesson

I am coming to the cello as a brand new beginner. I have play around with some fretted instruments, ukulele, banjo, etc. But Irina was super at getting me relaxed, focused on basics and encouraging me with small, but important mechanics and technical details. I have taken other music lessons like sax, so could compare. I totally enjoyed the start of my cello training.
Oh, btw, I'm retired and over 65!!!

Jen has done a great job with our 8 year old. She keeps her challenged and is continually increasing her skill set. I was most impressed that Jen had her learning both hands right from lesson 1. She's learning quickly and most importantly she's enjoying it.

I specialize in "shred guitar". That said, I love teaching students anything they want to learn. Let's make it fun and learn songs and styles you really want rather than me forcing you to learn the boring textbook stuff. I can teach you anything from songs of your favorite bands to solos, tuning, theory, etc... Lets do this! I have a teaching style that makes it easy and fun.

Ryan's method and personality really clicked with my son. We definitely picked the right teacher!
Dana M.
Ryan is professional and easy going at the same time. So far so good. I'm excited to keep going.
Shelly S.
Ryan takes his time and tailors my lessons specifically to my level and to the type of music I’d like to play. He covers everything from the basics – like the proper way to hold the pick – to more advanced teachings like music theory. Ryan is flexible, patient, easy going, and he consistently teaches at a pace that I’m comfortable with. He provides take-home practice after every lesson and always has helpful suggestions any time I have questions. What I find incredibly helpful is that at the end of the lesson Ryan will run through the take-home practice on his guitar and let me record it on my phone so it’s easier for me to remember. When I’m ready to practice the next day I just pull up his notes and the video and I’m ready to go!

It’s obvious that Ryan has a passion for music, and it shows in his lessons. I would easily give him my highest recommendation.
