A 20-year veteran of the musical theatre industry, Mr. Beaman is also a sought-out audition coach in NYC.

In this class, he will provide students with the tools they need in order to present their best work in an audition setting.
NOTE: Students in this class will be required to prepare a musical theatre song to work on with Mr. Beaman and should have a karaoke track of the song available to use during the class.
