When Ryan accepted me as a student almost 2-1/2 years ago, he took on the daunting task of teaching both mandolin and banjo to a complete novice...who also happened to be nearly 70 years old! Ryan is a technically accomplished professional player who patiently encourages and supports his students as they find their own musical voices. He himself is a broadly cultured and serious student of musical theory, who welcomes and is happy to answer questions about why things do - or don’t! - work musically. Studying with Ryan has been a splendid experience, and an excellent investment of time and money.Feb 26, 2018
Ryan is a very patient ukulele teacher. He incorporates the use of songs I like in order to make the lesson even more fun. I highly recommend.Feb 20, 2018

- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I always strive to make lessons fit each student personally. So before lessons start I'll be in contact to make sure I know about your needs. We'll talk about your goals, musical tastes, experience, and any special needs before we begin our first lesson.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have a Bachelors in Music from the University of Illinois - Champaign/Urbana. I've been playing guitar for over 15 years and banjo, ukulele and mandolin for over 7 years.
- What types of customers have you worked with?My students range from beginners to advanced students. I'm also happy to teach any age from 5 years old and up, my youngest student was 5 years old and my oldest currently is 70 and everywhere in between.
