Musical Theatre 
Rep & Prep Coach


$60 / hour

===

I have a comprehensive collection and knowledge of the musical theatre repertoire.  I specialize in song selection, offering unique choices that help you stand out in a positive way.  I have a degree in music education from CCM, I play piano for my lessons and focus a lot of attention to musical details.  I was Bernie Telsey’s assistant in 2009, so 
I have a solid understanding of what happens “behind the table” and “inside the room.”  My students have been in many Broadway shows and tours including Wicked, Hairspray, Book of Mormon, Spring Awakening, Les Mis, Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson, Xanadu, The Sound of Music, The Wedding Singer, American Idiot, Bye Bye Birdie, and more.  
I have also had students on a number of major cruise lines. 


I also specialize in college audition preparation
My past students have been accepted into many of the top-ranked programs, including:
Cincinnati’s College-Conservatory of Music [CCM], Boston Conservatory, NYU, 
Cap 21, AMDA, Berklee College of Music, Webster Conservatory, Chicago College 
of Performing Arts, Pace University, Point Park Conservatory, University of the Arts, Oklahoma City University, Texas State University, Florida State University, Otterbein Conservatory, University of Oklahoma.


With my younger students, I focus on:
Finding the RIGHT song that’s appropriate for you, your age and your voice;

16-bar and 32-bar cuts that show off the best part of the song in the time allotted;

Preparing your sheet music & speaking concisely to an audition accompanist about precisely what you need;

Expanding your range, working through your break, discovering new sounds and styles & much more.
