STUDENT TESTIMONIALS:

"My teenage son has been taking drum lessons from Ryan for almost two years now. Ryan is the BEST instructor. He is patient with my son and very inspiring. My son enjoys taking lessons from Ryan. Not only is my son learning a lot, he is also gaining more self-confidence. I highly recommend Ryan as a drum instructor." - Gina Kathuria (mom of my student Tej)
"great instructor! Ryan has taught and continues to teach me a lot in an entertaining way. Unlike other instructors I have had he teaches diverse methods, techniques, and styles. Overall a great experience!" - Konrad Raab
"He was amazing! He was professional and courteous, and you can tell that he really loves what he does. He connected right away with my son, and my son has been jamming on the drums ever since." - Danielle C
"Ryan is an amazing teacher - such a good person - and superb art/teacher. He will help you grow in whatever direction you want. He's great at breaking down rhythms and helping you find your voice. Highly recommend." - Dan Newman
