“Ryan (Louie) is a good teacher because he breaks things down into smaller steps. He’s a great cellist, and he has made me a better cellist.” – Elliott
“We’re thrilled that Ryan, along with the Griffon String Quartet, brings world class music education to our small town. He’s not just giving our son an opportunity to learn a string instrument, he’s teaching from the perspective of an extremely talented, well-educated, experienced professional. The Griffon String Quartet is bringing an exceptional opportunity to our community, and we are truly thankful!” –Elliott’s parents, Luke & Rebecca
