Ryan is awesome! He's been providing lessons to my son (now 10) for a couple years. He makes lessons fun while still pushing his students to develop their skills. He tends to work on two songs at a time -- one classical piece and one of my son's choosing. The latter are often popular folk, rock, or pop songs. Because Ryan is such a fantastic musician he is able to adapt most songs to piano and my son really has a lot of fun both seeing the process and then learning versions of the songs he has heard on the radio. Highly highly recommended.Sep 11, 2020

I love taking lessons with Ryan. He has opened my eyes to the fun of improvisation. I am a graduate student, earning my MME. Ryan is a wonderful, responsive, knowledgeable, fun teacher.Sep 22, 2020

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I charge $55 per hour however with a package of 6 lessons the price is dropped to $50 an hour.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?In 2013, I accomplished a Fine Arts degree in Music from STLCC and then went on to complete undergrad studies at the University of Missouri St. Louis, finishing a Bachelors Degree in Music Composition with a minor in Jazz. While attending UMSL, I studied with internationally acclaimed professors including Alla Voskoboynikova for Classical piano, Barbara Harbach for Composition, and Ken Kehner for Jazz piano. I was recognized with top honors in the class of 2018 receiving a Distinguished Performance in Keyboard award and the Outstanding Music Composition award from the UMSL Music Department as well as being a member of the Honors Society and Deans List. While attending school I also performed and participated in the Concert choir & Jazz Ensembles.
