Performing with world class players from the New York Philharmonic, Metropolitan Opera Orchestra, Philadelphia Orchestra and more.

After Ryan graduated from the Curtis Institute, Ryan spent several years diving into the world of electronic music production, before moving out to LA for a career in music production and trombone performance.
