Private Lessons

Lesson enrollment currently closed but please check back for future availability.

Ryan is the best teacher I have ever had. Since starting lessons with him in 2011, he has taught me everything I know about the bassoon. From making reeds to the importance of long tones and scales, he has given me the tools I need (sometimes literally) to become the bassoonist I am today.

Throughout these past 8 years, I have grown to know him as both a mentor and a person. He’s incredibly encouraging and knowledgeable, and I’m honored that I’ve been able to be his student for as long as I’ve been.
