Ryder Emerson

Ryder Emerson is an up-and-comer in the choral industry. Born and raised in northern California, Ryder was a diligent pupil of music throughout high school and had his first piece of choral music at the age of 18. He studied music at Cuesta College and College of the Siskiyous, but credits most of his music education to his close friends and mentors Kirby Shaw, Greg Jasperse, and, of course his father, renowned choral arranger and composer Roger Emerson. Ryder currently resides in southern California and when he's not writing music, works in the entertainment industry as a session singer.
