Ryan’s music background started at an early age while getting lessons in guitar and piano. Through middle school and high school, his interests in music led him to study Music Composition and Classical Guitar at Texas State University. There he studied with composer Dr. Russell Riepe and performed on many occasions in ensembles and solo concerts, such as Guitars Galore in Brownsville and Hill Country Guitar Festival. His senior composition was selected and performed for the Sans Souci International Dance Series. Ryan’s private classical guitar instructors are award nominated guitarists such as Steve Kostelnik, Adam Holzman, Kim Perlak and many more.
Ryan now resides in Northwest Houston where he teaches guitar and piano to all ages. He believes a healthy yet balanced study of classical, jazz, pop and other musical styles is a proper route to success in music. Ryan has been teaching music for 8 years and loves sharing his inspirations and continually growing knowledge with his students.
