Bass Lessons

Student Testimonial

“Ryan is an amazing instructor.  As an adult learner taking up playing bass in my 40s, I spent several years looking for the “right” teacher.  I found Ryan through her columns on and have taken lessons from her for over two years.  The real deal as an educator, she can take you wherever you want to go musically, whether learning music theory, working on ear training, or just learning to groove and play songs, she’ll find the right mix of formal education and fun to make working with her an educational and enjoyable experience (even when she makes me use the metronome to practice).  Without a doubt, one of Music City’s funkiest bassists, a consummate professional and a great teacher—I highly recommend her to anyone who wants to learn how to groove and take their playing to the next level!!!”
