Welcome to Cello for Weddings and Events, maker of unique and classy accompanied cello music for all occasions!

Combining my background in Classical music, multi-genre/instrumental playing, composition, and sound engineering, I perform melodies on the cello with recorded accompaniments to add expressive harmony and rhythm for a completely entertaining musical experience! In 2018 and 2019, I was voted "BEST CEREMONY MUSICIAN" by New Mexico's engaged couples! It's a one man show, but you get the sound of many musicians playing expressively!


I regularly perform at weddings and receptions, restaurants, holidays and celebrations, grand openings, galas, bed and breakfasts, dinner parties, hotels, lounges, and more. I bring everything I need, including a professional battery-powered speaker for amplifying my acoustic cello giving you quality cello sound at any size venue, including remote places!


Genres include mainly pop, rock, and country, but also R&B, jazz, and other favorites as I am always creating new arrangements! If you love Classical music, I have hours of beautiful melodies by all the greats and of course the Traditional wedding pieces (by request). Audiences enjoy this wide range of genres and sounds of my repertoire.

Music & Info tab has many recordings and more details. If you have questions, check out the FAQ page, or feel free to call, text, or email me!


We are super happy with the elegance that having Ryan perform at our wedding brought. Ryan is extremely talented and professional! Such a great personality that made us feel extremely comfortable with our decision of having Ryan perform for our ceremony and cocktail hour. Our guest are still talking about how beautiful his music was!! Thank you Ryan!!!
