Jack was also the five-string banjo protege of Charles Wood, who won the National Banjo Championship five years in a row and also served as actor Steve Martin’s banjo teacher. Jack was also the plectrum banjo protege of Benjamin Johnson IV, who was the star pupil of Perry Bechtel, the number one four-string banjo player and number three guitar player in the world during the first half of the 20th century. While Jack’s background is a mix between Jazz and Bluegrass, he is also well versed in Blues, Country, Rock and Roll, Metal, Classical, and Pop music.

During this time, Jack became known as having the “Fastest Fingers on Broadway” as dubbed by Twilight’s Taylor Lautner. While in Nashville, Jack played on stage and toured with Steven Tyler, Kid Rock, Vince Gill, Montgomery Gentry, Dierks Bentley, The Swon Brothers, Hank Williams III, Rhonda Vincent, and Larry Gatlin of The Gatlin Brothers. Jack Ryan’s band was the featured band for Jason Aldean and Luke Bryan’s private CMA Party in 2016. Jack’s experience includes: 16 years playing music and 10 years teaching experience with over 5,000 former students. Jack plays and teaches acoustic guitar, electric guitar, mandolin, violin/fiddle, viola, cello, upright bass, electric bass, five-string banjo, plectrum, banjo, tenor banjo, ukulele, dobro, lap steel guitar, accordion, piano, and drums.

Just a reminder to John, Holly, and Matthew’s awesome students:

Jack’s students will be on regular schedule for today, but of course can be made up at a later date!

Reminder, it is the 5th Monday and Tuesday of the month which means that regular lessons are not happening unless you are owed a makeup from missing on Christmas Eve!

Please call or email to confirm if you are unsure.

If you have had 4 lessons in December, you won’t come Monday or Tuesday!

12/07/2019

To all of my students who participated in the Christmas jam tonight:

I am so proud of you and of the musicians that you are all becoming.

Keep putting forth the practice and time and your love for music will only grow.

-Jack

In the spirit of giving, we would like to sponsor 3 children’s music lessons for the month of January.

We would like this to go to a family in need, no matter their background as maybe a way to ease the burden of the holiday season.

I grew up raised by a single mom and my grandparents, so I know the struggle to fill up a stocking this time of year.

If you can kindly share this, we hope that the right people will see this and will be blessed for Christmas.

Music is a gift!

With school starting next week, it means that Orchestra, Band, Show Choir, and Chorus are all beginning, too!

A lot of parents are under the misconception that because their child is involved in these programs, they will learn and excel on their instrument to their full potential.

This just isn’t true.

Having your child involved in private one-on-one instruction on top of their group instruction at school can’t be beat.

It is the pathway to becoming a successful, well rehearsed, and knowledgeable musician.

Kids typically only inside of the programs at school don’t get the individual attention due to oversized class rooms, and even if they are lucky enough to have aids and assistants, a 60 person concert band class within 1 hour and 30 minutes gives each the teacher on average only 1 minute and 30 seconds per student, if applied privately.

At Jack Ryan Music, we offer half hour time slots and one hour times slots that are one-on-one instruction with world class musicians that are based on your specific needs.

Our after school time slots are filling up incredibly fast, so call and sign up today!

We are currently looking to add another Orchestra teacher to our to staff!

Just a reminder:

Holly and Doug’s students will be on schedule this week!

Jack, Austin, and John’s students will NOT have lessons this week due to the majority of our students being out of town and rescheduling 100 lessons doesnt make the most sense!

Instead:

We will be coming the LAST 4 weeks of this month INSTEAD of the first 4 weeks.

You will still be getting your 4 lessons for the month, so dont worry!

Starting now, our phones, emails, and social media will be unmonitored for some much needed rest and relaxation for times with friends and family.

Please hold all emails, messages, and texts until July 8th as they could be lost in the mix due to the lines of communication will be unmonitored and/or unavailable.

We look forward to serving you AFTER July 7th!

Thank you for your patronage and have an amazing Independence Day!

Here is some rock'n'roll guitar playing over Hotel California by Eagles, it’s extra Rock’n’Roll because I missed some notes.

I'm playing a really cool 1981 Gibson ES-347 into my Line 6 Helix. I really dig this guitar, it brings a different edge to the way I think, but don't be fooled, it can chicken pick, too!

Share the video and comment if you like it!

A video I did just for fun. I wish I had known that my camera was set to the lowest quality settings BEFORE I filmed this... Oh well, it was good practice, and better luck next time!

Met a new friend while I was out in LA - Mr. Jerry Levine. You may recognize him from Teen Wolf, Born On The Fourth of July, Seinfeld, Will & Grace, or about 100 other TV shows and films. Jerry is also a gifted director and producer for a ton of other projects as well. Jerry and I met while we were both hanging out at @normansrareguitars and he asked me to demo a guitar for him that he bought. It was a humbling experience to say the least, and #JerryLevine is definitely the nicest guy in Hollywood. @ Norman's Rare Guitars

06/04/2019

Check out this gorgeous 1935 Gibson Super 400 that I got from @normansrareguitars while I was out in Los Angeles. This guitar is one powerful machine and it plays extremely well.

It is with great disappointment that the 2nd Annual Jack Ryan Music Festival must be postponed due to inclement weather conditions throughout the entire day tomorrow.
Unfortunately, thunderstorms, rain, and music equipment do not go together, nor does rain storms and food trucks...
We are incredibly saddened by the weather as we were SO looking forward to this awesome event!
Please stay tuned, as we do have a rain date coming shortly!

Hi, Jack, just want to be sure you know about the Bluegrass Jam tmw--Saturday--at the Cultural Arts Ctr in Glen Allen from11:00 to 11:00. There won't be anybody there to compare to you but it should be fun. Hope you and Jensen will be there!
Hey Jack! Do you buy used instruments? I have a mandolin I'm looking to sell.
