Ryan Gerlach started making beats when he obtained a ‘totally legal’ version of Fruity Loops from a ‘totally legal’ website in 2007. He liked beat making so much he went on to do a degree in Music at the University of Adelaide, majoring in Music Technology. When he finished that he wondered what the hell was going to do with a music degree majoring in Music Technology, so he decided to do a teaching degree. Ryan now teaches beat making for a living. Ryan Gerlach is also the ex-drummer from Adelaide band ‘Terracotta Palace’, and also the conductor of school concert bands and orchestras.
