Dara Pohl Feldman Ithaca Acting

MTCA appreciates that everyone is unique.  None of my coaches tried to pigeon-hole me into a specific type or way of thinking about the business.  MTCA not only gives you the ultimate tools for killing it in your auditions, but it gives every single person a support network throughout the entire process.  My coaches not only taught me that I was good enough to get into any school I wanted, but they also taught me the confidence to go on even if I didn’t receive that acceptance letter.

We were immediately overwhelmed by the difficulty of the process, as well as the very competitive nature of being admitted to audition-based schools.  Our son began working with MTCA in the beginning of his junior year through Skype, and we were very impressed by the professionalism and dedication of all of the coaches assigned to him.  By the time it came to auditions, he was confident, well-prepared, and competitive with other kids who had much more experience than he did.  We have already recommended MTCA to others, and are grateful that we found them when we did.

With the help of my coach, I was able to walk into every audition room with confidence. I was able to showcase my talent and passion for the work because I truly loved the pieces that she helped me pick and develop.  She took the time to get to know me, and through the process was not only a great teacher, but a close friend.

I am still pretty in shock and so excited to tell you that I will be attending the University of Michigan next year for Musical Theatre. I seriously don’t think I would have survived without MTCA. You guys honestly kept me so organized and on top of everything and I can’t even imagine what I would have done without you. Thank you so much for all of your hard work. You guys are GREAT.

I knew that MTCA would be the defining factor in helping Max get to where he wanted to be in the realm of college acceptances.   The time and dollars spent were well worth it.  The Master Classes, the dance classes, the Mock Audition, hours of vocal, dance and monologue practice all made a challenging year a little less stressful (maybe even a little bit fun)! Having a coaching staff that assists in keeping your child on track and disciplined is priceless.  As the audition season came to an end, Max had choices and I am able to see the bright future that I have always wished for him is within his reach.

There are so many teachers and coaches out there that can give you great training, but MTCA goes beyond that – they prepare you while giving you lifelong wisdom. You are lifted up, challenged, and loved, so that by the time you have to audition, you feel supported and confident in your capabilities as an artist and person.

I would highly recommend MTCA to anyone navigating through the college process for performing arts. The individualized arts and education advice given to my daughter was invaluable.  The college audition process is anything but easy but with the help of MTCA my daughter has offers from 5 top musical theater programs and we couldn’t have done it without them!
