I just had my first trial lesson with Ryan and it was a great experience. He made me feel comfortable and you can tell he tailors lessons to each individual student and their music interests. Looking forward to continuing lessons!

Great experience with the first lesson. Ryan was very patient with my child and got her excited again to play guitar. Ryan was organized and using the portal to log the lesson and goal for the next lesson. It has the parent login which is perfect for me to find out my child's progress in detail vs. traditionally, it is usually a quick few minutes chat with the instructor or email to find out your child's progress. Thanks, Ryan, we look forward to your lessons.

FAQs

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

    Online Special! If you register as a new student today, you get a free lesson and a special lower rate.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    My first three questions for a new student are: Have you played guitar before? What kind of music do you like? What made you want to learn guitar? My method is based on the idea that if I know what music inspires you, I can give you the music and tools you need to play that music. I want to make my students WANT to practice and never put the guitar down. Fun fact- My answers to those three questions are: Yes. Jack Johnson, John Mayer, Dave Matthews, Sinatra, and Breaking Benjamin. That scene in Back to the Future when Marty plays “Johnny B Goode” on guitar.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I’ve completed college level music courses and studied guitar at an early age under Dr. Tim Moberly and Mark Lacy.
