INFORMATION ABOUT AUDITION REP BUILDING PACKAGE: One of my specialties is helping students build a musical theatre “book” that is appropriate for their age, type and talents. This is an in-depth process that requires at least 3 coaching sessions (in person or via Skype/Facetime). The cost for this 3-session package is $450 for in-person coachings (I provide the accompanist and studio space) or $350 for Skype/Facetime coachings (student must provide the accompanist on their end).
Ashleigh’s Coaching Philosophy
I began performing in musicals and plays when I was 11 years old and theatre has been my passion ever since. Whether I’m doing voice or acting coaching, my goal is the same: help you perform honestly and uniquely within the context of your material. In other words, I want to help you discover that super-awesome combination that is YOU walking in the shoes of your character. I don’t subscribe to any one singing or acting technique because I believe that there are many ways to train, so we can work together to find what works best for you. I specialize in helping singers find and prepare great audition material (I’m a really big musical theatre nerd who knows a LOT of shows!), and coaching audition monologues and sides. I do coach Shakespeare; I don’t coach dance…trust me, it’s better for everyone that way! 🙂
