But in 2008 I was on my honeymoon. I should have been having the time of my life, but I was a complete mess. I was desperately miserable in my corporate London job and so stressed out that it was making me sick. My purpose was music and I wasn’t living it. Something had to change.

Ry Naylor Guitar was born

My wife and I moved to France and I used this opportunity to leap straight in and start a business teaching guitar. This has since grown to become a thriving online community of guitarists, all of whom are motivated to grow.

It hasn’t always been the easy path, but I get such a kick from seeing those lightbulb moments for students when theory is explained in a fun, visual and accessible way.

I still pinch myself that this is my job.

 
Three generations of the naylor clan.  My dad’s heavily guitar-orientated musical diet of bands like Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, and Pink Floyd that inspired me to pick up the guitar and the book and teach myself how to play.
