Robert Ryman was born in Nashville, Tennessee on May 30, 1930.  He comes from a middle-class family; his father was a business man, his mother a amateur pianist.  She fostered his early interest in music which was in the area of jazz.  He studied the saxaphone for two years at Tennessee colleges.  He attended the Tennessee Polytechnic Institute in Cooksville, Tennessee from 1948 to 1949 and the Peabody College for Teachers in Nashville from 1949 to 1950.  He also served in the United States Army from 1950 to 1952 after which he moved to New York City.
