Cedar Rapids July 2016 Teacher Feature: Ryan Swedean
By West Music Company
7/6/2016 8:00:00 AM
Ryan Swedean is a low brass instructor here at West Music Cedar Rapidsa. He received his Bachelor of Music in trombone performance from the University of South Dakota. He has done graduate work in trombone performance at North Dakota State University and has his Masters in Music Education from the University of Southern Mississippi. Ryan has taught lessons or band in a large setting in the states of Mississippi, Louisiana, South Dakota and Iowa.

Ryan started in 4th grade on trumpet and shortly thereafter switched to euphonium. In high school he switched to tuba which he still plays in the Eastern Iowa Brass Band. In college he switched to playing trombone. He substitute teaches in various school districts around Iowa City and Cedar Rapids.

Ryan has just recently moved to Cedar Rapids so does not have a lot of performances here yet but he does play with the Eastern Iowa Brass Band. He has played with The Beach Boys, Train and for a presidential inauguration. In his spare time he likes to watch Netflix with his wife and plays with his dog.

His favorite thing about teaching is seeing a student’s face when they make the real sound of their instrument. One of his most interesting experiences includes teaching in one of the poorest counties in the country.
