Introduction: My lessons are always catered to my student's interests and goals! I have 20 years of teaching experience, including the last 7 years teaching music at the University of Wyoming (in addition to my private lesson studio), that experience has brought me to place where I can see the unique talents, as well as the individual strengths and weaknesses of each student - from there I can form a plan with my students that help them learn effectively and practice efficiently so they can flourish and become proficient musicians and guitarists in their own right. I absolutely love teaching and can't imagine doing anything else. I get up every day excited to go to work because I know I get to help people become better at something that can bring themselves, and others around them joy and satisfaction!

I've really enjoyed my lessons with Ryan. He is very talented and has wonderful passion for playing and teaching. Is great at communicating and has been flexible with my work schedule. Ryan customizes practice material and recaps lesson and sets practice goals. I highly recommend Ryan to anyone looking for a guitar teacher. Ryan is an excellent teacher. He is very patient, knowledgeable, and makes playing guitar fun.

Ryan Fourt is one of the best guitar teachers I've encountered. He specializes in most American styles of music in addition to some South American flavors. No matter your experience level, Ryan can help you elevate your playing and become the musician that you want to be.

He’s an amazing teacher who cares about his students. His teaching caters to each individual and he’s very understanding. He made music fun and I learned so much from him over the years. You can also see how much he loves music and it shines through his teaching. He showed me how I would want to teach kids music in the future!

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    My rates are very reasonable for this market. My half hour lessons are only $25 and then full hour sessions (which some people prefer) are just $50.

  • What types of customers have you worked with?

    I teach guitar lessons and also perform a great deal at different venues, festivals, and colleges around Colorado and the U.S. My weekdays are dedicated to teaching and my weekends are spent gigging - I truly love what I do!

  • Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?

    I recently recorded and released my very first album on a major record label - I had released recordings in the past but they were all on my own independent label. To see this latest project come to life and to have the backing of the Dazzle Recordings label has been such a blessing. I put my heart and soul into the project and can honestly say this is one of the only times I have been completely satisfied with one of my records; I'm my own worst critic so to finally feel good about a project as a whole puts a smile on my face. Sometimes that hard work does pay off. ;) The album is called "Big Slick" and can be found on iTunes, Amazon and Spotify etc. and wherever else you can think of that you like to get your music.
