The Juilliard School '26

“Where do I start? Going into the pandemic I knew I wanted to be an actor and at the time I had actually given up on musical theater because I thought I wasn’t very good at it. And that’s when I started taking dance classes and song lessons! Those classes and workshops that I was able to take at MTCA changed the way I saw myself in regards to musical theater. My song coach John-Michael not only pushed me to sing every song I auditioned with from a place of truth, he also taught me how to connect over a zoom screen which was really needed this year!

Anyways, fast forward to the callback weekend at Juilliard and that was the weekend I fell in love with Juilliard. On the 2nd to last day at Juilliard I found out I got accepted as a BFA musical theater major at Carnegie Mellon. Made my decision a lot harder. Then about a week after the callback weekend at Juilliard, I get a call from New York and I answer it “welcome to group 55”. I think in that moment I forgot what was real. MTCA and my coaches and mentors there have really seen me go from Texas State to Carnegie Mellon and then finally land at my perfect school, The Juilliard School. All of them so different and special in their own ways, but MTCA helped me the whole way through and I am forever grateful.”

“As a person trained in performing arts myself I believed I understood what it would take to successfully apply for a degree in Musical Theater. Between my own knowledge and personal contacts in the industry, I thought we would be fine on our own.

I was incorrect.

We gulped at the financial investment but people who love our son strongly recommended MTCA so we knew that this was the right thing to do. MTCA immediately matched him up with amazing working industry professionals. His main coach Leo is extraordinary, and the entire team at MTCA is the most supportive flotilla of loving people that help in so many countless ways. They know what they are doing. Headshots, monologues, song choices, wild cards, mock auditions, in person auditions-pivot to virtual, Unifieds, blizzards, Omicron…I am convinced that navigating this is actually incomprehensible without the help of MTCA.

Here is the end and the beginning of the story. He was courted and recruited. MTCA opened our eyes up to programs we never heard of. They made sure he did what was needed. They held our hands, talked us off cliffs edges. My son received TEN artistic offers with huge scholarships. I am confident they are much larger offers because of the work he did with MTCA. Use MTCA. They open doors you could have never imagined. I am so happy to say he made a great choice.”

“It can be challenging for students auditioning for college Musical Theatre Programs to balance their preparation while maintaining their own authenticity. MTCA coaches are able to help in all areas of audition preparation including choice of appropriate material, proper vocal technique and mock dance calls allowing each student to present their best unique self in every audition. MTCA students are always well-prepared, confident, and ready to share their best selves in the audition room; it is always a joy to see them.”
