"The workshop was a life-changing experience for me. It showed me that being a wife and mother doesn't have to stop me from pursuing my passion for musical theater. Teacher Rony created a safe space where everyone felt free to express themselves, he made us understand the beauty behind each song and delving into the stories they tell, going beyond melodies and lyrics. His passion, dedication, patience and support to each one of us is truly admirable. Grateful beyond words to Teacher Rony 😊 ...My wish is for more people to experience the same joy and transformation this workshop brought to our lives. -L.A.

"Program was worth every penny you paid for. My daughter enjoyed every class so much. She learned a lot from Teacher Rony while having fun with friends. My daughter also learned the right mindset as a performer, she enjoys the moment, gives her best and she can always do better than her last! I also saw how independent she has become. Would definitely enroll my daughter again!" - Parent of Kids Class Participant

Proper singing for musical theater means more than just having a beautiful voice and singing with emotion.  It means really diving into a piece. It is understanding a composer's choices for writing a song a certain way. It calls for grasping what a lyricist intends when he writes a lyric.  It means analyzing how music and lyrics work together.  And most importantly, making sure that understanding comes across from the actor to the audience, that it reads to an audience.  Come in with song choices.  Must have musical theater experience.



All participants in the 2024 Summer program will learn how to properly audition for musicals! What to bring, the importance of song choice, how to prepare, what to give the accompanist, etc. Participants will even experience a mock audition!
