As a conductor, arranger and teacher, students and academic and industry colleagues often come to me with questions such as these:
- “How can I find the right songs for my auditions, voice lessons, coachings, competitions, juries and cabaret appearances?”
- “Where can I find new music to suit my evolving voice and character type?”
- “Where do I find that great song someone just sang to land a terrific job?”
- “Where do I find songs I can recommend to my students or colleagues?”
- “How do I learn more about a specific song or show?”
- “How can I find a song to use in a movie or video or a TV or radio spot?”
