Hi, I'm Ryland and I'm a professional vocal coach. You're on this site because you want to improve your craft, and I'm on this site because I can help!
I work with singer-songwriters, pop artists, and theater performers not only to craft a sustainable approach to singing, but to connect with your voice and your material in a way that makes your performance unforgettable.
I have coached dozens of artists like you, seeking to develop their instrument - be that for a gig, for an audition or to develop as a singer and as an artist.
I received formal education for Vocal Performance from New York University. Since then, I have worked in nearly every angle of the entertainment industry from backup singing in a divey pub to vocal coaching and music directing a major motion picture, you name it. Understanding and coaching the artist at any particular juncture in their journey is one of the beautiful things about my job.
So let's get to work, what do you say. Let's reach your peak performance.
I was the vocal coach and provided music direction for major motion picture musical, "Crazy For The Boys," out in theaters Spring 2018.
I worked with the five stars of the project for three months, teaching, arranging and recording 14 original songs for our cast album. On location with the film, I supervised playback (lip-synching) and also curated the instances of live singing in the film.
Ryland and his teachings go far beyond what I expected. He listens and communicates incredibly. A fantastic learning experience. I would be more then happy to work with him in all aspects of my vocal work from basic training to studio technique and stage performance. Thank you thank you!!+ Read More
Ryland has a literal and metaphysical grasp on what it takes to develop the human voice. He is dedicated, open-minded, forward thinking and articulate in ways that most vocalists and teachers can only dream about. He will go above and beyond to make sure you get what you need.+ Read More
I really enjoyed my sessions with Ryland! He's such a nice, sweet and professional guy. Very welcoming and fun to work with. He made me feel at ease like I was just working with a friend. He really knows how to get your voice to a place much stronger than when you came in. I'm looking forward to working with him again soon. Highly recommended.+ Read More
I have studied singing for over 20 years and Ryland was able to show me how to do things with my voice I didn’t know were possible, from day one. He’s a super kind and supportive coach, with incredible insight and know-how. Thoroughly recommend.+ Read More
