Her original musical Prêt-à-Morté has been selected for the Miami and New York Micro Theatre Festivals and garnered Scheherazade nominations to the Latin ACE Awards (Best Director, Best Musical), and ATI Awards (Best Director, Best Actress). Scheherazade started performing in television to later be part of Venezuela’s professional Original Casts of Fiddler on the Roof, The Producers and the revival of Jesus Christ Superstar. In New York she’s been part of The Laramie Project (Gramercy Arts Theatre), Sweeney Todd (Frederick Loewe Theatre), Street Scene (Brooklyn Lyceum) and Civilization! (45Bleecker Theatre). Trained in Classical Voice and Music Theatre, and alongside renowned acting instructors, Scheherazade received her Master’s of Music in Vocal Performance from New York University. She also loves to be behind the scenes, which is why she holds a Master’s in Television from Boston University and a Bachelor’s in Communication (Journalism and TV Production).
Scheherazade has been an adjudicator for events including the Classical Singer National Competition (Musical Theatre Division), Classical Singer Online Event (Musical Theatre Division) and the Broadway Rising Stars Competition from Steinway & Songs alongside iHeart Radio. Her students can be seen on Broadway, National Broadway Tours, Regional and International Productions and in a TV near you! She enjoys working with young and adult performers alike, and those entering the NYC industry for the first time.

Scheherazade’s Coaching Philosophy

No one can be you better than you.
As a performer each one of us is unique. As such, your individual perspective on a character, and his/her words and lyrics is what people want to see, and makes you great at what you do.
A performer is one of the final pieces in the work many others have already started to build. The answers to guide your journey are on the page and in the sheet music you look to perform: the words, punctuation, shapes, as well as the knowledge you have on its authors, composers, the work itself and its performance. How do you relate to them? What does these words and melodies mean to you? What images do they ignite?
Alongside a healthy technique that will allow you to perform for as long as you want, we’ll work together in understanding each piece and making them your very own.
