"I am very impressed with Ryan's progress. I have noticed that whenever Owen has worked with Ryan on a song, he comes home knowing exactly what to do to improve, and then with practice, is able to make the song sound the way it should. We are pleased that Ryan has had this opportunity of one-to-one guitar lessons, it has enabled him to go in an individual direction, so thank you." - Demelza Murrihy-Topp, parent
