Most inspiring podcast I have ever listened too

Ryan does an excellent job at bringing in other professionals (mostly musicians) to talk about their stories. It is amazing to hear how Ryan is learning from his colleagues and what the general listener can learn! This IS NOT a podcast for musicians, but rather a podcast for anyone who wants to learn about ways to take different life approaches. 10/10 recommend and I hope you can learn something!

Great Podcast

If you’re a musician or just a person trying to better themselves in any way this podcast is a great choice. Ryan does a great job interviewing people from all facets of the music world, documenting their experiences in their field. Though I’m a musician and teacher my favorite episodes are when he’s talking about life and self-improvement. My favorite was when he talked about its not the critic who counts. With that said, Ryan does an excellent job and you’re only going to leave encouraged and inspired to give your best after listening to his podcast. Keep it coming!

This podcast is one of the best resources for any musician.

The stories I hear in this podcast are not only informative, but inspiring. I always listen to a few episodes leading up to an audition or an important performance. A professor showed me the podcast and, since then, I have been a big fan.
