Testomonial..."While I was the band director at Hempfield High School, my jazz bands included several very well-trained guitarists who studied with Mark Ryan. To name a few: Frank Velardo (All-State Jazz Band), Jeff Nagy, Peter Plaxa (District Jazz Band), and Nick DiSebastian (All-State). Their outstanding improvisation, style, and reading abilities were a direct result of Mr. Ryan's outstanding teaching. What a complete pleasure to have experienced these players, and to have had them participate in our jazz program!"
