Music software and recording lessons Los Angeles - Red Pelican Music - Ryan 13


I have been taking electric guitar lessons with Ryan for several months. I have learned so much already. He has a very relaxed teaching style which makes it easy to comprehend new lessons. I am thankful to Red Pelican for providing such an amazing teacher and musician.

I have had five sessions with Ryan and I can confidently say he is a PHENOMENAL instructor. . . very knowledgeable and a fantastic guitarist, not to mention he is super friendly and always upbeat when he is conducting lessons. . . Ryan has a very laid back but focused approach to teaching that makes learning guitar (even the tedious things like theory) enjoyable.

A dazzling guitarist and multi-instrumentalist, Ryan is terrific with rock, pop, jazz, blues, classical, folk and more.  Fortunately, since Ryan is such a nice, laid-back person, you’ll find his talent inspiring, rather than intimidating.  Ryan’s instrumental specialities include guitar, ukulele and bass.

Ryan’s other love is recording.  He’s a Pro Tools, Logic and Sibelius expert, and an all-around recording guru, so if you don’t see him holding a guitar, he’s behind a mixing board or a computer.  Ryan holds a B.Mus. in Studio Guitar, with a minor in Music Recording, from USC’s Thornton School of Music, where he was awarded a full scholarship.

Ryan loves working with guitar and recording students of all skill levels – whether you’re picking up the guitar for the first time, or you’ve been playing for decades.  Ryan has a very organized approach, and enjoys breaking down seemingly complex concepts into digestible bites.

Ryan is a self-described “life-long computer geek,” so he is a great choice for students that like a modern approach to lessons, incorporating software tools.  He also enjoys giving skype lessons.

Ryan’s favorite musicians include:

Guitar – David Gilmour, Eric Clapton, Tommy Emmanuel, John Mayer, Julian Lage, John Frusciante, Blake Mills
Bass – Pino Palladino, Flea, Paul McCartney, Steve Swallow, Ron Carter
Ukulele – George Harrison, Israel Kamakawiwo’ole, Eddie Kamae, Jack Johnson, Ingrid Michaelson
