Summer Programs


Music Theater Bavaria

I will teach and present master classes at the Music Theater Bavaria summer program. Below is a description of this unique and  comprehensive program:

Training in voice, acting, dance, movement and song interpretation.With this    unique German influence at its core, Music Theater Bavaria offers the combination    of a culturally enriching study abroad experience and a serious professional    training program in which students choose an emphasis in either opera    or musical theater. At MTB you’ll spend the month of July working    with a focused group of talented students and excellent, experienced teaching    faculty who are committed to making the maximum possible impact on your performance    readiness in a period of four weeks. 

You’ll perform and you'll study voice,    acting, dance, movement, German, audition skills, working in the German-speaking    countries, and more, as you experience life in the beautiful Bavarian Alps.    Most students are in college or graduate school, but may also be young professionals    who desire to train at MTB in preparation for auditioning in the German-speaking    countries. Although we work intensively Monday through Friday, most weekends    are free for travel and relaxation. Music Theater Bavaria is designed as a premium    study abroad experience for a limited group of up to about 26 singers, with    a very low student/faculty ratio.
