If you are looking to learn what makes a shred solo, what makes a riff catchy and what keeps the neighbours up at night this is the class for you.

About Me

Welcome Guys!
My name is Ryan, good to meet you! especially during these really bizarre times!

I am a highly experienced session and recording guitarist.
Over the past 10 years I have worked with bands, solo acts, tribute acts and also for myself.

From winning multiple UK talent competitions and band contests, recording with top 10 hitting artists and representing the UK in a European festival, music and guitar is definitely in my blood!

Being self taught I always found that most teachers would be more focused on taking the easy route, or taking hard earned money from unsuspecting students. My entire philosophy is to teach you the skills that will help you play along to some of your favourite artists, to help you understand how and why you are doing it but most importantly, to define YOUR voice and style. My approach is to make learning the guitar comfortable, exciting, fun and challenging.

For the past year I have been working in a full-time capacity onboard various different cruise liners in party bands, jazz bands, rock bands and as a sight reading musician in theatre shows onboard. Playing up to 4 hours a day, every day for the entire contract, which has only elevated my passion, approach and skills in both ear training and technique, skills that have helped me understand and develop a teaching technique I believe will help you be the best player you don't even know you can be!

Please don't hesitate to ask me any questions!
Cheers,
Ryan!

Experience / Qualifications

Over 10 years experience playing in session and recording capacities.

Guitarist for multiple bands onboard high profile cruise liners.

Reading Guitarist for acts such as Lorraine Crosby (Meatloaf Singer), Queen Tribute Acts, Take That Tribute Acts, Theatre Shows and more.

Winner of UK Battle of The Bands Twice

Represented and Performed on behalf of the UK in the “Divercities Festival” watched around the globe.

Recording Guitarist for a Top 10/Top 20 artist.
At some stage in their lives EVERYONE owns a guitar, some sit in the corner of a room gathering dust while others are used to express, entertain, make a career out of or just used by someone to mime along to a Guns N Roses track. Whatever your goals, if you are a beginner, intermediate or even an undecided guitar player or owner I am here to help YOU learn your favourite songs, understand them, and most importantly explore and define your very own style!
Joe Satriani is a name that rings many bells for millions of players and listeners of instrumental guitar music. With hits such as Surfing With The Alien, If I Could Fly and Always With Me Always With You, Satriani paved the way for a new type of play style that sounds like something out of your favourite sci fi movie. In this lesson my aim is to demonstrate and teach the techniques and ideas behind his playing style from very articulate skills such as Legato, Advanced Bends and the use of the Lydian Mode. This will also allow you to break out of the box you may feel like you're in and open for mind to new ideas! Playing like Satch is no easy thing but with persistence and willingness to take on a challenge you can expand your ideas and skill.

Flute lessons for all the levels and ages. Solfège lessons also possible.
I'm a flutist who just ended the Master in Antwerp Conservatory obtaining high distinction result and I have experience on teaching flute from debutants (children or adults) until preparing audition for students who want to enter a conservatory. I also have experience on teaching solfège and for people interested on starting music (both flute and music theory). I can combine everything in one lesson. I enjoy playing the flute together with the students and for debutants, as I also play the guitar, I can accompany them.

Piano and Guitar Classes for Entry levels, Beginners, and Intermediates
I teach Entry level, Beginner, and Intermediate Piano and Guitar lessons. I focus on different styles, techniques, and rhythms, with a broad base of musical genre. These classes are designed for aspiring musicians with some musical background and also those with little or none. The aim of each lesson is to keep the student at the peak of each of their abilities by giving both challenging new pieces and reinforcing and expanding their own knowledge. I also put some emphasis on incorporating students' own personal musical tastes and styles to bring their own passion to the music they want to play.

Guitar lessons for students of all levels in the Lake Zurich area
The program will be tailored according to the student goals. (leisure, professional development) focusing on; basic knowledge of the guitar, basic chords and more advanced chords, scales and modes, theory and practice of improvisation, study of a repertoire, right hand technique (fingers or pick), music theory and rhythm. An understanding of what are the goals and interests of student, as well as their skills is the most effective way to pass on knowledge.

Learn to play Electric or Acoustic guitar in any style
I teach electric and acoustic guitar in many guitar based genres of music, including every type of rock music and pop music, blues and funk, etc. Lessons I offer are tailored to the specific needs and abilities of each individual student. If you are a beginner and don't have all the equipment, don't worry, I own several guitars, two guitar amplifiers and many effect pedals, so even if you don't have all the equipment yourself we can have a fully productive lesson at my home. I have almost 20 years of experience in playing the guitar and great knowledge of the specifics of guitar playing in each individual genre that I am teaching. Whatever you wish to play, you will be able to master during lessons with me.

The most important matter that I could write here about is my passion to teach. I've been teaching already for more than 10 years, from kids to adults. I'm a classical pianist, but I am opened to other musical styles. What I want you to get from your lessons with me, is not only a huge knowledge of theorical stuff or a great technique, I would like to show you my musical world, the imagination and inner exploration that is required to understand and to love music in a whole new level. Once you have found them, it will be very hard to quit playing! The class duration: You can choose! 20 minutes (Great for the youngest : 3 years old) 30 minutes (Ideal for young beginners from 4 years old) 45 minutes (Intermediate+ adult beginners) 1 hour (Intermediate and combined with some Music Theory) I use different methods depending on: 1) The goals of my student 2) The language that we will use on class 3) Age and musical preferences: I start to teach children from 3 years old, we make games and they learn to play through musical stories that I have created throughout my pedagogical career.

Learn piano easily with 1 on 1 private lessons perfect for beginner and intermediate students.
This Piano Instruction offers a program for beginners and intermediates as a package deal for students who are more serious and want to dedicate more time to learning piano. As a beginner, you will learn basic piano techniques and practices, and immediately start learning songs that will enforce and progress those techniques. By the end of the program, you will be able to read and play sheet music and have a much greater understanding of music in general. Those who are past the beginner level will start lessons that focus on learning more advanced pieces to further strengthen their skills. You may also choose to learn your favorite songs in this program. The goal here is to give you the practice techniques and confidence to be able to perform solo piano pieces. **YOUR LESSONS** You may choose to follow my piano/music theory program, learn to play your favorite songs, or even take lessons just to learn chords. I’m happy to work with my students to give them the lessons they want and the skills they will cherish.

Classical Guitar, Mandolin, Music theory lessons by enthusiastic tutor and performer
Enthusiastic guitar tutor and performer. I started playing classical guitar at the age of 6, and my formal musical education begun at the age of 9 when I started attending a music school in Croatia. After 6 years of primary school I continued studying classical guitar at secondary music school in Varazdin, Croatia. During that period I received training in classical harmony, Counterpoint (polyphony), Solfeggio, Music history and gained plenty experience at orchestral playing and choral singing. I decided to continue my musical education in Manchester where I was studying undergraduate degree at the Royal Northern College of Music and currently I am studying at the Royal Conservatoire in the Hague. As a performing guitarist, I have successfully participated and won prizes in a number of international competitions in the UK, Italy, Croatia, Slovenia and Bosnia and Hercegovina. Although my studies are primarily related to classical music, I am comfortable playing and performing music in a range of other styles and genres. I am also experienced with mandolin and Croatian folk instrument called tamburitza.

Violin Lesson and Music Theory (English, German, Russian)
I am a professional violinist. I like to teach and play music. I have a lot of stage and teaching experience. I want to share my knowledge and help each student to improve their violin skills. I teach beginners and advanced. The individuality of each student is very important to me. A pleasant and friendly atmosphere of the lesson is important to me too. I am studying at the Carl Maria von Weber University of Music in Dresden. I played in orchestras such as “Neue Philharmonie Munich” (2020), “German-Scandinavian Youth Philharmonic” (Berlin, 2020), “Zakhar Bron Festival Orchestra” (Switzerland, 2019), “Animato Academy and Concert Tour 2018” (Austria, Hungarian, Czech Republic, Slovakia), „International Region Orchestra“ (Germany, 2018), „East-West Chamber Orchestra“ (Bulgaria, 2018). I was a soloist and concertmaster of the Youth Symphony Orchestra at the Trans-Siberian Art Festival (Novosibirsk, Russia) and a soloist of the Youth Symphony Orchestra (Ulsan, Korea).

Professional violinist is giving lessons of violin online! Learn to play violin and enjoy every lesson! 😊
In this violin course you will learn a foundation in learning one of the most rewarding instruments in a fun and relaxed atmosphere. Grip the bow, hold the violin, have the perfect hand position and enjoy playing the strings while learning how to read the notes, the violin rhythm and technique. Students will generally learn better if they feel a connection developing with their teacher, whether that’s through humour, showing care about their development, or making sure teacher devote time equally to all students when in a group. You will not regret. 😊

Querflöten-, Keyboard-, Theorie- und Gehörbildungsunterricht auf Deutsch /Englisch /Chinesisch
Schöne Grüße! In den letzten zehn Jahren habe ich es genossen, Musik durch Flöte, Blockflöte, Bratsche, Keyboard, Klavier, Cello und Theorie sowohl in Einzel- als auch in Gruppen zu unterrichten. Als Multiinstrumentalist halte ich es für wichtig, dass die Schüler nicht nur technische Fähigkeiten auf ihren Instrumenten entwickeln, sondern auch kreativ mit Musik umgehen. Neben meinen Bachelor-Leistungen in Auckland und meinen Master-Studiengängen in Deutschland habe ich Pädagogik auch studiert. Ich bin ursprünglich in Taipeh geboren, kenne Kulturen aus verschiedenen Kontinenten und unterrichte gerne auf Englisch, Deutsch und Chinesisch. Sie können gerne mich kontaktieren wenn Sie Interesse haben. Ich freue mich Ihnen helfen zu können.

Music Theory for all ages - reading musical notes, music history, solfege, composition
Learning to read musical notes and get to know music in a fun way. This lesson is determined by the need and age group of the student - from musical games and music appreciation and beginner note reading and music-making, to dealing with musical material and musical analysis. I am a composer of music (classical, acoustic and electronic) who deal with music in many shapes and forms. I hold a Master degree in Composition from the Royal Conservatory The Hague. I love teaching and I have taught everything from ensemble playing for toddlers who do not read notes, to music theory, analysis and music philosophy to undergrad university students.
