MUSICAL THEATRE AUDITION PREP  |  BY APPOINTMENT

Ages 15+  |  LIVE Online with Broadway veteran Julie Pappas Smith

Since Covid-19, the ability to audition for colleges and universities of your choosing can happen anywhere. However, you must know how to bring the best of YOU to your video submission.

  • I have worked with students on everything from vocal pieces to the interview. Musical theatre auditions can be very complex. You may need a choreographed 1 minute jazz piece, a 2 minute a song or monologue… I can help. I would love to work on the skills needed to make sure you have a solid, confident audition.

    Previous Students have been accepted at:
    Boston Conservatory at Berklee School of Music, Hartt School of Music, University of Hartford, Elon University, Syracuse University, Roosevelt University, Loyola University, University of Miami, New World School of the Arts High School, CCM Conservatory, University of Michigan, and many more.

PRIVATE VOICE LESSONS  |  BY APPOINTMENT

Ages 15+  |  LIVE Online with Broadway veteran Julie Pappas Smith

A 1 hour voice lesson is dedicated to finding your own voice and working on the music of your choice. We begin with physical movement, releasing tensions in the body and connecting your breath to vibrations. I use a wholistic approach to free the unique voice within you. The method is simple, comprehensive, and key to maintaining vocal health.

  • You will need a karaoke or instrumental version of your audition song, as well as a device that can play the song in your home as we ZOOM online. We will also need to make sure your sheet music is in the same key as the recording.
