Ryan Stover, 11, is a 7th Grader in Benjamin Franklin Charter High School in Gilbert AZ. He started taking piano lessons at the age of five, then started studying under Mr. Fei Xu at the age of nine. Ryan is a winner of the 2017 Desert Valley Music Teachers Association (DVMTA) piano competition.

Classical music is by far Ryan’s favorite music genre.   He practice piano music by many different composers: Chopin, Liszt,  Bach, Beethoven and Ginastera. In addition to his instrumental skills he sings in his school’s Junior High Honor Choir.

Aside from music, Ryan also enjoys learning about history, space and math.  A quote by him: “I have to admit, playing the piano is difficult. It may seem easy at first, but the learning curve gets the best of you, and you’re forced to devote your time and effort to it.”
