Violin, Viola, Cello, Piano, Guitar
Ryan is a classically trained musician whose love of performance and sharing his passion for music naturally led to teaching. His first love was the viola, which took him to Carnegie Hall, and continued his education at Tufts University, studying under Scott Woolweaver. Along the way he picked up the violin, cello, piano, guitar, bass, mandolin and ukulele, and has performed a variety of genres on stage, including classical, klezmer, rock and funk.
Experienced in teaching all ages, Ryan helps his students bond with their instruments and speak the language of music by focusing on groove, technique, and the ear, building confidence and enthusiasm early on. Whether preparing for competition, working on their favorite songs, learning how to improvise or becoming a composer, Ryan’s students will be guided with patience and understanding every step of the way.
