WHAT TO EXPECT
Do you hate auditions? Do you find that you aren’t getting the results you want from your auditions? I have been on the other side of the table for countless auditions, and I have insider information to share and teach. Together, we will dive into what material you currently have prepared for your auditions, discuss what you may still need for your auditions, finely craft your pieces (you can never be too prepared), and strategize methods to enact so that you can leave the room feeling confident in what you just presented.
I am a theatre specialist and can assist in classical, modern, and/or musical pieces to have in your repertoire. We will get back to basics, build from the ground up, and prepare you to be ready for any audition with minimal prep time. During this time of social isolation, I am currently equipped to teach via Google Meet or Skype. I am open to researching and using other platforms if needed by the student.
Each session lasts one hour and the fee is $45. Please contact me via my email address:
