Styles change, but the building blocks of music are forever.

No matter where you're headed creatively, a drummer needs a solid technical foundation, a knowledge of how music works, and an understanding of your role in it. We can give you those tools.

Maybe it's a single session, maybe a month. Maybe a lesson every week until one of us croaks. We'll focus on your unique goals. Books and videos are great, but everyone's different; only you know why you got into music and where you're headed. We'll show you which 3 pages you need and how to steal licks like a pro. This is not a cookie-cutter thing. You're not a cookie. We eat cookies for breakfast.

Lessons available by the hour and half-hour. If you've got drums and a space in the Halifax area, we can even come to you. If you don't live here but do have access to Skype or Google Hangouts, you're good to go. Contact us or book online using the widget above.

note: additional $5 mileage fee will apply to in-home lessons.

Our son took drum lessons from Ryan for a few years . He absolutely loved Ryan’s teaching methods. Ryan was super informative and fun! He was so easy to talk to and to ask questions to.

After seeing our son come home so excited from lessons with Ryan, my husband and I decided to take guitar lessons from Ryan. As it was with our son, it was the same for us, we had so much fun learning from Ryan and we appreciated his kind and patient personality .

All of us would highly recommend Ryan for drums or guitar!
