Overview

I'm a tenor passionate about helping students of classical singing and musical theater discover new and exciting ways to sing more freely while having fun! I love hearing people sing and helping the achieve their goals. I received my B.M. in Vocal Performance and Music Education from Ithaca College, and am currently pursuing my M.M. in Vocal Pedagogy and Performance from the world renowned Westminster Choir College in Princeton. I have experience as a high school and middle school teacher as well.

As a performer, I have performed in numerous operas and scenes, both at home in Ithaca, NY and Princeton, NJ, and abroad in Kiefersfelden, Germany. My experience in performing means that I can give students practical advice about what it means to be a singing actor on the stage!

My teaching is based on realistic and thorough knowledge of anatomy and physiology - no "tricks," just good, healthy singing based in science! - and evaluation of each student's individual voice and specific goals.

In my studio, students learn vocal techniques based in strong modern voice science, as well as practical performance tools, to become better singers and performers. As part of the prestigious Vocal Pedagogy program at the Westminster Choir College, I have studied a variety of effective vocal techniques and styles of teaching. I tailor my teaching to individual students and your goals!

Ryan Zetllemoyer is a wonderful teacher! He immediately put me at ease with his gentle and kind manner. At the end of the lesson, I could feel an immediate difference.t. I felt so much more relaxed and singing just felt effortless. I am so happy I found this wonderful teacher to help me improve my singing skills.
