What people are saying

If you want to bore your audience then DO NOT book Ryan Guth. Ryan brings entertainment and information together in perfect harmony!

Jared Easley

Co-Founder , Podcast Movement

Ryan has a way of communicating with his listeners in a very direct, personal way. No matter the topic, the audience is left feeling energized and supported knowing that Ryan genuinely cares about helping them make a positive change.

Stevie Berryman

Founder, StevieBe Music

Ryan presented his experience to the students with a fresh perspective that was educated, honest, open and warm; and he stayed well after the session ended to answer student questions and offer advice.  It was clear that the students were lifted to the same spirited level of excitement that surrounds Ryan.  It was a pleasure to work with Ryan; I hope to partner with him for future presentations.

Lynn Schindel

Associate Director, Alumni Relations, Rider University

Ryan is dynamic not only in his presentations but also in his personality. For the amount of valuable information he has to offer, he is also an incredibly approachable person to talk to, which is a characteristic that is full of merit in the choral profession.

Brand Yourself like a Choir Ninja 

Do you want to be someone who stands out in the choral world? Would you like your application on the top of the stack for the job you want? This session is designed to teach you how to stand out to important people, so you’re not just another choir director in a pool of applicants or another lost soul at the next ACDA convention. Learn tactics taught by online branding and marketing professionals who charge thousands for their courses.  Ryan Guth will share some of his Choir Ninja tricks that helped him get the attention of over 100 of the smartest minds in choral music and go from choral nobody to the Choral D-List! Topics include defining your UVI (unique value indicator), becoming the squeaky wheel that doesn’t get replaced, authentic in-person networking, the value of giving value, starting a movement, and haters.

Instagram tactics you never saw coming!

Your choir members are on Instagram, so take your phone out and get to work with Ryan Guth, the host of America’s original weekly choral interview podcast “Find Your Forte” and the new “Choir Ninja” podcast. In this session, with phone in hand, you will discover creative ways of using Instagram to “hack” your choir’s productivity, recruit new choir members, market concerts, and boost morale in your own choir by creating relevant and engaging content. Even seasoned Instagram users will find something to steal like a ninja!

Why are your concert programs so ugly when you’re so beautiful?
We didn’t go to school for graphic design, but we’re required to produce collateral that goes home with the audience and remains a keepsake for years to come. Shouldn’t we want these materials to reflect our brand and the pride we and our members have in our choral program? Learn what is required to make beautiful concert programs that your audience will take seriously in both paper and digital formats (to save trees, duh!). Your audience will love them so much they’ll think your choir sang better than they actually did! Ryan Guth is good at this. Just ask his mom and dad! 🙂
