Ryan Mack is the son of my dear friend, Rose. I have known Ryan for awhile now through his morher and in person as well.I have gone to his concerts and was blown away by their proffessonalism of his students at such a young age. I can only attribute that to the phenominal teaching that he provides for his students. And from what I understand, he is a dedicated teacher spending hours and even overtime with them to fine tune their lessons with him. That is a rare quality and only shows what a good and inspiring teacher he is for his students.I have no doubt that he would be an asset for your lifechanger of the year nominee. Thank you.
