In short, I am a performer and educator wrapped up in one! Originally from Pennsylvania, I moved to the New York City area in 2007 to perform and formally launch my company, Dance.Laugh.Learn – A music, movement, and drama program for kids. As Co-Founder and Artistic Director, I do everything from teaching to curriculum development. I am brand new to the Charleston area having moved with my husband a few short months ago. I previously served as the Director of Education & Development at Class Act Performing Arts Studio in South Orange, NJ. My areas of responsibility were Musical Theatre, Kids on Broadway, Dance Combo, Private Voice Coaching, and Company Team. I holds a B.A. in Music Performance from Ramapo College of NJ and is a certified Kindermusik (Music Education program for children) and Leap ‘N Learn (Dance Education program for children) instructor.

Each vocal lesson will focus on the technical aspects of proper vocal technique including: pitch development, ear training, music theory, rhythm, musicality, and proper breath support. Acting lessons will work on improv skills, projection, objective, and choice. We will be silly, we will have fun, and we will learn and grow!

"I like studying with Rylee because she teaches in a way that I can visualize what I am doing. She makes it fun while pushing me at the same time." This is a quote from my 15 year old daughter. Rylee has a very good practical understanding of what the student is capable of. My daughter has a perceived limitation and I have already seen this instructor work beyond that and ready her for another level. Rylee's laugh will make you smile. Very blessed to be working with her.

Rylee is an outstanding vocal coach! Rylee has an infectious personality and makes singing fun. From the beginning, she put our 9 y/o daughter at ease and, most importantly, she helped her develop the confidence needed to succeed. We are so thankful that Rylee was recommended to us!

Rylee is a fabulous teacher! My daughter's confidence and vocal strength has improved significantly since beginning lessons with Rylee in August. I saw immediate improvement in breathing technique from the very first lesson. Rylee has a great personality and makes you feel comfortable instantly. Also, my son had a last minute audition that he needed some guidance on. Rylee made time for him and was instrumental in giving him the confidence he needed. Our family is glad to know this special lady!

Rylee is a fantastic vocal coach! She has been working with my daughter for several months now, and I have seen a lot of development and increase in her confidence. She does a fabulous job getting to know her students, how to motivate them and help them do their very own best. She is so positive and encouraging, as well as being super organized. A pleasure for my daughter to work with and learn from!

My daughter has loved to act and sing since she was a little girl. Now 13 she performed in her first on stage play with Charleston SummerStage and LOVE it!
Rylee was recommended to us through the summer program and we could not be more pleased! She is a delight and my daughter really enjoys going to her lesson. We are excited for what the future holds for our daughter and know that Rylee will be there to support her in anyway she can!
Highly recommend!!!

Rylee is an excellent teacher with a real passion for her students. She's helped me tremendously increase my confidence as a vocalist and work on growing my repertoire and range of vocal styles. When I had an upcoming audition she was really great about helping me to prepare and booked extra times for me to work with her so I could feel totally confident about my material. 5/5 stars for sure!
