Ryan bashed out his first rhythms on a plastic top hat while listening to Queen in about 1990. Since then, he's put out critically-acclaimed records, played clubs, festivals and art spaces all over Eastern Canada, recorded in NYC, toured Europe and helped people of all ages and skill levels to unleash their inner musician.
Ryan knows how lucky he was to have a drummer uncle, some great musicians his own age and an incredible music teacher around when he was starting out. He's a lifelong learner (has done both a jazz degree and Jerry Granelli's Creative Music Workshop) and firm believer in a positive, down-to-earth approach to music education. Ryan keeps lessons focused on excitement and loves to jam with students....... on drums, guitar, bass, keys, drum machines, DJ rig..............
