Elite Senior Teacher

Ryan is an Senior Singing Teacher at Vox Singing Academy.

Ryan is also staff training and quality control manager of Vox Singing Academy. As a full time singing teacher at VSA Ryan has a wealth of experience teaching all ages and levels of singing with over a decade for teaching at Vox Singing Academy. Ryan teaches beginner to professional singers.

Ryan loves to work on original compositions and is an accomplished songwriter himself. He teaches all styles of singing but specialises in Pop, Blues, Rock, RnB, Gospel, Soul, Hard Rock, Indie, Alternative, Screaming, and Musical Theatre. Ryan also teaches beginner guitar, cajon, public speaking, monologues, acting and voice over techniques.

“After I finished my teaching degree (honours in drama and music) I worked a few years in the industry I decided that my passion was really with teaching the science of singing itself. What really drives me is seeing the look of satisfaction on the students faces as they walk out of each class knowing how to sing a song. I pride myself on putting the students needs first at all times and to discover the most efficient way for the student to learn new techniques whether its developing a higher range or learning how to sing complicated songs or whatever they need.”

“I play gigs almost every week as either a percussionist /singer in a Blues Rock Band or as a soloist as a guitar/singer using cajon, stomp pedal, tambourine, etc. At the moment I’m experimenting with looping pedals for live gigs so that I can re-enact the feeling of a full band with just me playing solo. Personally as a teacher I feel it’s really important to still be out there on the front lines learning new styles, songs, techniques and performing them as it keeps me fresh and honest playing in the live music scene in Melbourne. I also play and collaborate with various other solo artists”.

Ryan’s Background

From from an early age, Ryan was always singing and playing music, whether its in the local church or to singing his brothers and sisters records in his room. Ryan became the lead singer in his 3 piece Accoustic 90’s Rock band ‘The Dregs’ in 1999 and played local gigs for a few years. He also quickly picked up guitar, keyboard and drums at the age of 16 and started writing and performing punk/grunge rock songs every week for years at the prince of wales Open Mic in Prahran. The years after he finished high school, excelling in music and theatre, Ryan decided to get serious and got some singing lessons with Peter Vox throughout his teens you through to he’s early 30s until he started teaching at Vox Singing Academy!

A Great Testimonial For Ryan Vox From Exciting Young Future Talent Jules Paola.


Student testimonials:

“When I started singing lessons with Ryan two years ago, I had very little control over my voice and very little confidence. Ryan provided me with the tools and training to unlock capabilities in my voice that I was not able to do before or never even attempted. But apart from improving my vocal technique, Ryan’s passion for music is infectious. He creates a supportive environment that helps you to relax and have fun!”

– Miriam Rose

“Ryan has helped my voice improve exponentially with the technical advice, vocal exercises and encouragement he has given through his singing lessons. I achieved my goal of entry to a Bachelor of Music at Melbourne Polytechnic with just 8 weeks under his helpful teaching. Ryan has a super friendly personality and, if you utilise what he gives you to work on, I would guarantee that your singing goals will be achieved too.”

– Mitchell Wynne, Student at Melbourne Polytechnic (Vocal Major)

“Having singing lessons with Ryan has been life changing as he has been able to help me express my inner creativity through singing which, in turn, makes my soul sing.”

– Amira Relva

“I’ve had a few intensive sessions with Ryan – who is, possibly, the warmest human being I have ever trained with! He is instantly likeable, good-natured guy, who manages to sneak enormous amount of serious vocal training into what feels like hanging out with a friend. Stays entirely focused on a student at all times. During each session with him I received so much useful feedback! I cannot recommend Ryan highly enough. The studio itself is cosy and well-appointed, accommodates both individual and group vocal lessons. Comfy waiting space with couches and inspirational posters of past students, too :)”

– Emily Saaen

“My name is Michelyn and I am one of Ryan’s students. I felt compelled to write to you as I think you should be made aware of what a passionate and dedicated teacher Ryan is.

From the beginning Ryan really went out of his way to encourage me to develop myself and has always been willing to go the extra mile to ensure that I am really getting the best out of every session.

It is evident that Ryan sets very high standards for himself and portrays those work ethics throughout our sessions. He is very understanding and has been very accommodating overall. Ryan is also hilarious and there is never a dull moment in class.

Most importantly I have seen significant changes in my voice in a short span of time and I am pleased with the results so far.

I would not hesitate to recommend Ryan and I think he is by far the best trainer I have had. :)”

– Michelyn Barakat
