"Ryan has been such a blessing to our son. He really tries hard to make the lesson fun and challenging at the same time. Ryan never seems to get upset even when he knows my son hasn't practiced as much as he should have. My son says the best thing about Ryan is his attitude. "

"Ryan is an awesome teacher! I one day decided out of the blue, knowing nothing about playing music, to play the bass. He gave me suggestions on what would be a good bass guitar to start out with and suggested other things that might make it easier for me to get started. To top it off he gave me a bunch of charts and things for me to practice with on days when he wasnt giving me lessons. He was very patient with me as I am a slow learner when it comes to this stuff because I am far from musically inclined and he spoke in terms that I could understand and when it was absolutely necessary for him to use music language that i didnt know about he explained it very well. This guy is a great teacher, I would recommend him to anyone from someone that knows nothing about playing to someone who already plays and just wants to get better. Thanks Ryan!"

"Ryan is doing a great job teaching me bass guitar! It is so refreshing to have someone who is a BASS PLAYER, not just another guitar player. I truly believe his instructions, especially in the fundamentals of bass guitar music is helping me progress much faster than I otherwise would have. As i'm an older student (retired school teacher) his personalized approach is really useful. I have some previous music experience, but because it has been MANY years since I played the tuba, his patience is much appreciated. If you want to learn to play the bass, Ryan is the man!"

"Ryan is an amazing bass guitar teacher. My daughter had only played flute when at the end of the school year her teacher said she could be in Jazz Band if she would play bass guitar. I called another instructor who said it wasn't possible. Ryan helped us with every step of getting her set up with equipment. He is a very patient, supportive, and fun instructor. Thanks to Ryan, my daughter started the school year very prepared for Jazz Band and is excited to keep taking lessons and get to be the best bass guitar player she can be!"

"I have never played any kind of instrument... ever! Taking lessons from Ryan has been a truly amazing experience. He has such great patience, a wonderful teaching style, and is so easy to communicate with. If anyone has ever even thought about trying something new or learning to play bass, this is your guy. Not only is he a great teacher, he is a gifted musician and is passionate about what he does. The little things do matter to him. Jacob"

" About 4 months ago, I met Ryan McClelland through an online add. I had no idea what to expect from a private Bass guitar instructor. I have been playing Bass guitar for several years in a band when I met Ryan. By the end of our first session, I knew I wanted to learn more from him. Ryan possesses vast knowledge and experience when it comes to Bass guitar. He took personal time to come to my show. The next lesson, he knew exactly what my skill level is and what to teach me. I’ve noticed a steady improvement in my technique and versatility as a Bassist. I look forward to the lessons and practice regularly because he's always so patient with me but Ryan is also committed to making the best use of my time together. That helps keep me motivated. As you can probably tell by now, I'm very satisfied with my instruction and it has everything to do with the fact that Ryan loves what he does. I highly recommend Spokane Bass Lessons and Ryan McClelland to anybody who wants to seriously learn the Bass guitar! Darrin Truitt "
