MEET NATALIE CORDONE & KEVIN KELLY

Your musical theatre coaches... no matter "where" you are

We're here for you- literally and figuratively. 

 

We call ourselves Concierge Musical Theatre Coaches because we'll meet you wherever you are in the world, right here online.

 

We'll also meet you at your current stage- whether that's just getting started, putting your audition book back in order, or calming your nerves before your big professional audition.

 

You don't have to be "ready." All you have to be is be willing to let us help you get to the next step. 

 

we're really good at:

  • PROVIDING STRUCTURE in a business where you can feel totally lost. It's amazing how the question, "What do I do now?" can leave us all feeling paralyzed. We're great at breaking down the steps to transform your dreams into manageable, measurable steps.
     
  • BUILDING CONFIDENCE. Nothing brings in more auditions, jobs and roles than feeling confident. How do you do that? We'll show you.
     
  • NOT WASTING TIME. Do you ever feel like you could make these huge strides if you just had more time? We specialize in cutting out the fluff and getting to the heart of the matter. We're busy and so are you. Let's make the most of the time we have together.
     
  • BUILDING CONNECTED PERFORMANCES. What is a Connected Performer? It's that person who you can't take your eyes off of when they hit the stage or step into the audition room. It's that girl who comes in knowing her stuff and can't wait to show it to you. It's that guy who has that extra special something. They're connected to their material, they're connected to their intentions, and they're connected to the industry. We pride ourselves on being connected performers. We want to show you how to be one too.
