Ryan Vanderhoof is an excellent teacher! I would highly recommend his services to one and all. His style of teaching is fun, informative and moves at your pace.Mar 22, 2017Verified
Ryan is an awesome guitar teacher. I took acoustic guitar lessons with him for about a year and half and I learned so much in the process! If I had to describe his teaching style in three words, I'd say patient, flexible, and fun. He is understanding and caters his teaching to your musical goals. If you are looking to just learn riffs to your favorite songs, he'll help you with that. If you'd prefer to learn all the theory behind the music, he can help you there, too.Aug 25, 2015Verified
Ryan was a great guitar teacher! He consistently gives you his full attention and interest in your progression towards your goal. Always showing great patience and keeping the environment relaxed and fun, Ryan still challenges you to explore your potential even further. 5 stars hands down!Jan 15, 2018Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?My lessons rates are competitive for my area, reasonable, and for many remote students a better price than they can find locally. I encourage students to pay for lessons monthly, there is a $20 discount if you pay for four lessons in advance.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I like to have a conversation and discuss what the student may wish to focus on, which genres of music and artists inspire them and what some of their musical background and goals may be. From the first lesson I aim to provide the student with the information they need to make the next steps for them, and utilize music the enjoy to learn and practice the techniques.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have a B.F.A in Classical Guitar from Ithaca College School of Music and I have been a working, performing, recording and touring musician and private guitar and ukulele teacher for many years. In addition to teaching private lessons for students of all ages I also teach bands at Hickey's Rock School. I have experience in many genres and styles of guitar playing.
