Ryan Judd is a Billboard Top 10 Artist, winner of the 2018 ZMR Best Acoustic Instrumental Album award, and his music therapy work has been featured on ABC World News Tonight.
His unique background as a music therapist and an accomplished fingerstyle guitarist allows him to bring music and well-being into harmony with one other. One of Ryan’s first experiences of the transformative power of music came when he was a young music therapy student going see his grandmother for the last time. As he walked down the hall with his mom and brother by his side, everything felt cold, melancholy and sterile. The smell of disinfectant was in the air. Ryan entered his grandmother’s dark room and took out his guitar. The music he played broke through the isolation, sadness and fear. After the last notes faded, and tears welled in her eyes, she whispered, “That was good for my heart.”
Ryan’s musical roots have always centered around instrumental music. When Ryan first saw a video of Michael Hedges playing at Red Rocks, he was overwhelmed by emotion and knew that he had discovered something that would forever change the course of his life. Ryan immediately began to dedicate himself to learning fingerstyle guitar and has developed his own voice as a musician ever since.
