Ryan and I first met when he was a mere 12 years old, and his drumming chops were already miles beyond mine. As a student of mine, we worked more on developing the mindset and attitude to pursue a music career. Now a graduate of Berkelee School of Music, Ryan’s worked in a variety of studio environments, was a music designer for Sony Playstation, and has produced an impressive collection of his own music. We’ll chat about the journey, discuss his outlook on the future of music, and enjoy some great memories.
