His approach to teaching takes into account each students' specific end goals, while also aiming to broaden their knowledge of musical possibilities beyond their initial interests. He believes that practical experience in music is the most efficient learning method, and thus pushes for experience before moving to more abstract music theory teachings. Aryo specializes in procedural music and sound effects for video games, and has also worked with music for films and the concert hall. His concert music explores methods of blending western minimalist music with practices found in the traditional music of Iran. His fascination with procedural rhythms in 21st-century postminimalist music has carried over into video game music, where programmed non-linear music composition becomes the focal point of his works. Aryo began his music career by beginning violin lessons at the age of 2 after showing interest in violinists on the TV by imitating them for hours each day. He studied with Melissa Hui and Jean Lesage during his bachelor’s degree in composition at McGill University with a minor in linguistics, where he has also taken multiple courses on digital studio composition. At the University of Toronto, he has taken a master’s degree in composition under Christos Hatzis, where he has taken courses on sound recording, film composing, and interactive sound and music in video games.
