About Ryan Reeves
Besides being a powerful tool for expression and outlet for many people, the benefits of music and learning music remain countless, and are still being discovered today. Ryan passionately believes in teaching in a way that helps students become excited to learn, improve, and solve problems in creative and intuitive ways. He believes that with some guidance, structure, and positive reinforcement, students can uncover a potential in themselves that they didn't know was there. The empowering feeling of overcoming an obstacle or doing something you didn't think you could do is frequent when learning music, and Ryan believes those feelings have the power to change a student's life.
Ryan was put in to piano lessons when he was 3, and since then, his musical journey has only accelerated. After taking piano lessons for more than 10 years, he continued on to learn a variety of instruments. He played trumpet and french horn throughout school, sitting first chair in a state-winning symphonic band and orchestra. He learned guitar and vocals in his free time, and after learning to drum, became a member of his school's prolific marching percussion program. During the end of high school, he had opportunities to begin teaching private lessons, and eagerly took them.
The rewarding feeling that comes from watching students grow both as musicians and people has kept Ryan teaching private lessons since then. He strives to become a better educator and impact his student's lives the same way his teachers did him.
