Hi! I'm Mr. Ritsema.

I teach Beginning Guitar, Guitar Orchestra, Beginning Piano/Keyboarding, Intermediate Piano/Keyboarding, and IB Music.

I started at Washburn six years ago. My previous teaching experience includes The International School of Minnesota in Eden Prairie, North St. Paul schools, Newton International School in Doha, Qatar, and The International School of Berne, Switzerland.

I'm an avid reader, love foreign films and music of all cultures. I enjoy walks by the Mississippi River, and taking photos. 

I post my photography at fineartamerica.com

And I've developed a blog/site for guitar instructors.

I'm married and have two sons.
