i want to help you master auditions.

if you love performing music enough to make it your career, you're going to have to audition and get a job.

and if that describes you, then i have so much personal empathy towards you, because that was me, too. but I also know the incredible weight bearing down on you: audition struggles. 

here's my mission: i want to help you barrel through whatever's standing in between you and your dream orchestra job.

when i was a student, i wanted to learn the beginning-to-end, step-by-step audition preparation process. but lessons are so short and busy, and you have to learn such a variety of things that you never end up learning that methodology. you learn great little tidbits here and there, but it's not the full picture.

and so, because i’m an obsessive, driven, and project-oriented person, i've created methods and simple, easily adaptable instructions over the years to do basically any part of the audition process. and i'm going to teach you ALL ABOUT IT! 

some of the highlights? well, in one of my upcoming online courses (which will be FREE), i'll talk about what a winning audition sounds like. and to illustrate it, i'll play you a recording of my winning audition round at the MET. cool, right? i think so, too. 


audition preparation is better together.

the auditionhacker alliance is a facebook group where keen and motivated musicians band together to help each other achieve our common goals, like overcoming audition struggles and winning an orchestra job.

this group is designed to surround you with people who are just like you.

these are people who have gone through their own struggles, who know what it’s like, and can help you with whatever you’re working on right now.

3400 members and counting.

learn what it takes to be a professional musician. 

from time to time, i create valuable, premium resources and then give them away for free. 

i've created checklists, cheat sheets, and downloads to keep you on track. i've interviewed principals of major orchestras to give you an insiders look into the small world of professional orchestras.

i've collected them all into one place. right here.

go ahead, dive in.
