Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
I have been working as a teacher/coach in musical theatre, voice, songwriting and beginning piano/music theory in NYC for 20 yrs and in California for several years before that. Because I'm a performer as well, I bring a mix of vocal technique, acting and musicality to my voice and coaching lessons, which most teachers, who are usually only pianists, don't do. My students have gotten into the top arts schools and I work with all ages and from beginners to Broadway performers. I'm also a professional, award winning composer and songwriter whose songs and musicals are performed all over the world. I'm a member of the BMI Musical Theatre Workshop, where I honed my craft further and learned so much more about songwriting. I have a background composing in all styles of music, from classical to country to Latin dance. I bring many years of experience and a wide range of skills to my lessons. Also, I can be pretty funny, I've been told... I do try to bring humor and passion to my lessons. Learning and performing should be fun and fulfilling!

Lawrence Rush is an inspiring and gifted teacher. My daughter took her first musical theater class with Lawrence when she was nine years old at the renowned Neighborhood Playhouse in NYC, and she has been a dedicated student of musical theater ever since. Lawrence created an atmosphere in class that was safe, fun, and joyful, and he made the kids feel that no idea was a bad one. Among the many classes that my daughter took with Lawrence, she particularly loved the elective where her class wrote and acted in their own original play. Lawrence managed to lead his students through a process that was both rigorous and exhilarating, culminating in one of the high points of my daughters young life. I am also an arts educator, and I know a gem of a teacher when I see one. Lawrence is truly one of those rare teachers who leave a lasting, deeply positive impact on children, and I could not recommend him more enthusiastically.!

Thank you so much, Miranda! You know how much I adore you both and how I've enjoyed...and continue to enjoy... working with Ruby. It's been a joy to see her continue to grow musically and vocally through the years and to know how much she enjoys it. Thanks again!

After, what seemed an eternity of, looking for a new vocal coach, I started working with Lawrence a few months ago. Not only did he correct the "mistakes" I have learnt during previous vocal training, but also he understood quickly what my the potential of my voice could be, which was previously mislabelled. Am now singing from a register I could only dream of singing in previously. It is hard work and focus sometimes, but Lawrence really is such a great support. And not to speak of my pitch, which has considerably improved. Honestly, I am so glad to attend the classes and am always looking forward to the next week ! For those looking for a sensible, and very experienced musician, singer and coach, I would recommend giving him a try.

My daughter has been taking Musical Theater with Lawrence for 7 years now. Lily has grown as a performer under his instruction. Lily describes his classes as fun, fun and fun. Lawrence is an exceptional teacher who provides his students with a supportive and collaborative environment and where he nurtures their creativity. His love of Musical Theater definitely shines through in his classes. He's great!

Lawrence helped me with vocal auditions for performing arts schools. He helped me pick my piece and rehearse it. Happy to say I was accepted to both a performing arts middle school and high school in NY.

Thank you so much, Julian! So proud of all the great work you've done and for getting into both schools! Bravo!!

I've been studying voice with Lawrence for a few months now. I'm a complete beginner and had to start with learning to match the pitches that he would sing and play, which hasn't been easy for me. Lawrence is a patient and knowledgeable teacher, and with his help I'm progressing well and getting better and better at it. Lessons are fun, actually, and I'm excited to keep working with Lawrence ad progressing further. I would highly recommend him with no hesitation!

Thank you so much, Tiago! I'm really enjoying our lessons as well and am thrilled with how far you've progressed since we started. Proud of you! Keep up the good work!
