Should I use a personal director?

I addressed this to some extent in the previous post. I think this is an excellent idea - one that many people don't put on the same plane as a voice teacher or musical coach. A dramatic coach or personal director can help you flesh out what you want to do presentationally. However, you should use the work you do with that person as a basis for trusting yourself moving forward for both auditions and performances. You need to become secure in your dramatic presentation to truly grow. As a side note, this will undoubtedly be useful down the road when you find yourself in a role, where either time or the director's inclination leave you in a situation of having to do blocking and staging on your own!!

  1. Great advice. It's worth the investment, for sure. Great singing does not ensure that you will be effective visually, especially in a piece that is a "presentation" piece.
