Mr. Ryan's Music and Books, About


Who is Mr. Ryan? Well here goes! I’m a local Seattle Musician/Teacher who has been teaching various ages and music lessons in Seattle for the past eight years and prior to that a few years in San Francisco. I graduated with a Degree in Music from UC Santa Cruz. Yes, I am a banana slug!

While living in Seattle I’ve created a strong pre-school music program and I am currently teaching at Blossoming Buds, Leah School, the Exploration Academy, and Washington International School.  I’ve continued developing  my after school programs at Montlake, BFDAY, and Thurgood Marshal Elementary Schools. In 2014 I started teaching private guitar, piano, recording, and music theory lessons for children and adults. I recently finished updating my private studio.  Not only do I enjoy teaching music but I’m also one of the lead songwriters for the local Synth Pop Band Headwaves. When I’m not driving band members or musical instruments around, I can be found biking throughout the city. I also enjoy coffee, chocolate, and peanuts.
