For over eleven years now, Ron has been studying and composing under Sacramento's finest instructors, from G.I.T. graduate Tommy Armstrong Levitt to various instrumentalists, theorists, and composers at the Sacramento City and American River Community College. His instrumental abilities include guitar/bass, standard drumset, African hand drums, Indonesian Gamelan, piano/keyboard, violin, and has recently adopted extended range 7 and 8-string guitars. His songwriting skills range across a seemingly endless list of genres in both traditional and digital forms. He has also attended the CSSSA summer music program at the Cal Arts campus in Valencia to develop his skills further in composition under some of the top instructors in Los Angeles-- a rare opportunity for California musicians and artists. Throughout the years he also been involved in the world of graphic design, photography, film, and other visual forms of art.
It's been quite a few years, but definitely miss it and would love to again.
