Ryan Hawkins- Steel Drum Instructor

Ryan Hawkins is a multi-instrumentalist from Jamestown, NY. Ryan has been playing music since she was 5 years old. She started with piano, then, after joining the Infinity Visual and Performing Arts Program, learned how to play a multitude of instruments, including steel drum, accordion, bass, banjo, ukulele, mandolin, and flute. She has been involved with several bands in the area, including SYMBA, Steel Pan Alley, and Mighty Little.

Kate Rinko- Infinite Exploration Instructor

Kate is a graduate of SUNY Fredonia where she received her Bachelors Degree in Communication: Audio Production.

Kate’s main goal in her instruction is to get her students to be able to take their time and explore different art forms and instruments before they find what they are passionate about. She believes that genuine excitement is the driving force for students to want to practice and explore new genres and techniques on their own.

Kate continues to study different areas of art disciplines so that she is able to help her students find their paths by offering more and more every day. Currently, Kate is able to teach beginning instruction for ukulele, guitar, bass, hand drums, various art forms and dance. She will also focus on basic music reading and rhythms.
