The building blocks of music are forever.
Everyone's creative path is different. Every musician, regardless of style, needs to know how their instrument works, how music works, and how the two interact. Ryan has been performing for over 20 years and teaching for over 10. He's put out critically-acclaimed records, been on the radio, toured Canada and Europe and played all kinds of venues - from a tiny record store to an 8,000 person outdoor stage and everything in between. Since 2006, he's also worked with individuals and groups of all ages, backgrounds and skill levels to unlock their inner shredder. He has a degree in jazz drumming, so he knows how it all works on a technical level. He'll show you not only how to play your instrument, but how to read charts, break down songs and function in a band on stage.
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 OK, but only you know why you got into music and where you're headed. Find out which 3 pages you actually 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.
