The College Audition Conservatory Advantage

  • Small master classes. In small groups of approximately ten, students will each have the opportunity to work one-on-one with each university in three-hour song, monologue, and dance workshops. 
  • Parent workshops. Parents are invited (and encouraged!) to attend the week as well. We have daily workshops and master classes for parents all week long that will also teach you up the application and audition process, financial aid, academic planning, and more! 
  • A Celebrity Master Class. NEW THIS YEAR! We will be bringing in a broadway celebrity to conduct a master class with our students, on stage! 
  • Mock college auditions. Students will audition for the colleges TWICE during the program. At the beginning of the week from our faculty, and again on the final day of the program for an additional 10+ schools (a total of 20+ schools).  Students will receive feedback forms on the last day that will give them a clear idea of their areas of improvement before they are ready for their college auditions!
  • Fun free time and evening activities. When not in master classes, we have many fun activities planned for our attendees including a BBQ Pool Party, an outdoor Movie Night, a Piano Bar Evening, Pirates Dinner Adventure and Walt Disney World’s Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue!

    Lisa Reed, Parent
  • This week of networking and master classes is something you won’t get at a college visit. The Faculty  were so open to the students the classes were intense and just what daughter needed to help make her pathway to her future.   The student and parent friendships made too were amazing and just as important as the education.

    Tracy Angelo, Parent
