Ryan Iavarone's Music Instrunction. Musician/Artist/Teacher pushing the stone. I've been studying music for 27+ years now and teaching locally full time for 14+ years at Ross Music Sales and Service of Warwick RI. I offer instruction on Guitar, Bass, and Ukulele at all levels and am well versed in many styles of music.
Teaching, sharing, and inspiring are my passions. Other than doing what I love for a living, I love teaching (all ages) and seeing my students accomplish their goals, and help inspire people and help them fulfill a lifelong dream or start a student from day 1 as a child or adult and watch them grow musically, take it on as a hobby or go much further.
He will work with you to learn any style of music you want. He’s patient, willing to work around your schedule, and will approach the same thing I’m different ways till you find the best one for you.
Ryan has been an amazing teacher for almost 5 years running now. Started lessons with him in middle school and I’m starting my senior year. He takes a beginner’s desire and passion and turns it into chords and solos. Great at teaching theory while still having fun. Within no time Ryan will have you jamming to your favorite songs and writing music you never thought you would be capable of before taking lessons.
I came to Ryan Iavarone with not an ounce of experience on the guitar, just had a desire to learn an instrument in my 40’s. I loved and looked forward to my guitar sessions with him. Ryan is knowledgeable, patient and encouraging. He surely made learning fun. He is also flexible with appointments and the price is right. I would definitely recommend you give him a try! :)
I sit with the students and "grade them" on experience, age, musical interest's, any bad habits that need to be fixed (form, sitting and holding the guitar and plectrum (pick) correctly) and basically get a read on where they're at musically and what they want out of taking lessons. Then depending on all that I customize lessons plans to fit the individual student for the best progress for the instrument and music theory in general.
I have some college education in music (working on finishing my classes and getting my degree) and have 9 years experience teaching out of Ross Music Sales and Service giving instruction on Guitar, Bass guitar, and Ukulele at all levels and all styles
At the store it's the Ross Music's rate 22$ for 30 min and 44$ an hour (if student wants to come to me) but for house calls its 40$ an hour... flat fee
Being a well known musician in the area when I heard through the grapevine there was an opening for a guitar teacher at Ross Music I went in, auditioned, and got the job. That was 9 years ago.
All kinds and all ages... Teaching beginning classes, to advanced in Jazz, blues, metal, rock, classical, ect... I'm well experienced in all genres. Ive worked with "special needs" kids, helped students with senior projects for highschool, even James Woods is a student of mine... All walks of life.
Bob Dylan getting the noble prize.
Look for a teacher you that fits your criteria. Wether or not the teacher is fluent with what your musical goals are and can help achieve them. Not just someone that's gonna teach you to read but some your comfortable with, can build a bond with, and who understands what you want and need to excell as musician...
What are my goals musically? Ling and short term... Is it just a hobby or something more to you. What bands, artists or styles do you listen to and are influenced by? And make a list of songs you'd like to learn to give the teacher an idea of ur over all taste (and to work them into your lessons)
