About the Teacher: M. Ryan Taylor of UkulelePlay.com is the organizer of The Original Utah Uke Fest (since 2012) and director of Happy Valley Ukes : Utahs Ukulele Orchestra, performing regularly across the Wasatch Front. Ryan also teaches Weekly Ukulele Classes in Utah & Ukulele Bootcamps. Ryan also leads the two Ukulele Youth Choirs of the American Fork Childrens Choir. In Ryans words, I came to the ukulele after seeing Jake Shimabukuros rendition of While my Guitar Gently Weeps on YouTube. Jake inspired me and after getting familiar with the basics I started a ukulele program through the American Fork Childrens Choir. It turned out there were just as many teens, adults, and seniors in the community who wanted to learn and I just kept going, creating new learning materials as I went. Ryan has degrees in Vocal Performance (Bachelor of Music) and Music Composition (Master or Music) and is a Kodaly-certified music education specialist. He has worked professionally as a performing singer, recording artist, composer of vocal music, and director of choirs.
