Coaching

Having worked on our songs with a wide range of performers, from college students to Broadway stars, we’re excited to be expanding the coaching services we offer. We now have 3 tiers of In-Person “2-on-1” Coaching. And we’re also excited to be able to work with people outside New York with our Remote “Skype with Sam” Coaching.

To book time with us at our home-studio or schedule a live video session on Skype, please email us at [email protected].


Our Philsophy

As much as we strive for beautiful melodies and humorous or touching lyrics, above all we work to write acting songs; many are really mini-scenes, and we hope that all find their way to emotional truth. Through working with accomplished actors and directors over the past several years, we’ve had the opportunity to learn how to coach our songs and bring out the arcs, humor, and dramatic potential of our material. These sessions will involve digging into the musical and lyrical nuances of our songs to help you better tell their stories. We hope this will be helpful in your auditions, cabaret performances, and more.

“2-on-1” Private Coaching — $90 for 50 minutes & 1 song

You’ll get both of us, which is why call it “2-on-1,” giving you a chance to work with both of us on all aspects of the songs. As part of the session, we’ll also give you free sheet music for any 1 song of ours, as well as a piano track in advance to help you better prepare for the session.

Focused “Find Your Song” Coaching — $160 for 2 50-minute sessions & 3 songs

First, we’ll work with you to find the material of ours that best meets your vocal and performing needs. You’ll get up to 3 free songs, as well as high-quality piano tracks to help you prepare for our second session, when we’ll work with you on refining your performance of the songs we selected together.

Premium “Polish Your Performance” Coaching — $300 for 4 50-minute sessions & unlimited songs

Meet with us once a week for a month or once every 2 weeks for 2 months to work on a few songs and really refine your performances. You’ll get the value of getting to revisit the material repeatedly over time and zero in on the details that make a performance pop.

Remote “Skype with Sam” Coaching — $65 for a 1/2 hour / $80 for 50 minutes & 1 song

Through Skype video chat, we can now work with performers around the world! It’s just like a regular in-person coaching, but from your own home, wherever that is. All you need is a computer with internet, a computer speaker, a webcam, and a microphone (built in is fine!) We’ll send you sheet music for the song of your choice and a high-quality piano track, which you can use to prepare the song and accompany you on your coaching. Then we’ll find a time that’s convenient for you, and Sam will Skype in and work with you on musicality and story-telling.
