Private Lessons for adults is one of our specialties at Van Tuyl Music Academy. Learning a new skill or hobby as an adult is a completely different experience from learning it as a child. Adults have so many more questions than children, they need further explanation and have responsibilities that affect their ability to consistently practice. While many schools and teachers are content to just teach the notes of a new song each week, Ryan goes beyond, teaching you the rhythm, theory and musical secrets behind what makes your favorite song, your favorite song. Ryan is someone who personally loves picking up new hobbies and skills as an adult, so he takes pride in his direct understanding of all that you’re going through when you decide to become a musician later in life. Click on the specific instrument below to learn more!

Artist Development

The VTMA Artist Development program is an all-encompassing music mentorship for musicians ages 11-adult who want to be more than singer-songwriters or piano and guitar players, they want to be Performing & Recording Artists. A significant part of this program will include invaluable, Artist-Specific, Studio-Ready instrument lessons with Ryan, but the totality of the program is focused on introducing the artist to the world in a creative and relevant way. It is through this focus on the journey of becoming an artist that students of this program develop lifelong skills of understanding success and failure, and most importantly, discovering their self-identity and self-confidence.
