My approach is based on my experience as a pianist in musical theatre auditions, as a music director on the creative team, and as an onstage performer. These three perspectives give me unique insight into the following topics:
1. Choosing material that is authentic to your strengths and style
2. Performing your audition cuts successfully and stylistically
3. Recording remote auditions
4. Preparing cuts and sheet music for an audition pianist
5. Interacting with the pianist and casting team with charm and confidence
I have music directed, conducted, and performed musicals professionally for over ten years all around the country!
I have experience as a collaborative pianist in all styles, coaching at higher education institutions such as SUNY Fredonia, James Madison University, and Arizona State University.
I have participated in audition training classes and workshops with industry professionals such as: Pasek and Paul, Michael John Lachiusa, Sheri Sanders, and Carner and Gregor.
I have extensive experience with arranging and notation, and offer custom arrangements of pop/rock or Broadway songs
