WELCOME

My aim is to offer insights as to how you can achieve more success in the audition room.  I am able to design technical exercises to help you extend your vocal range, find new colors in your voice, and/or strengthen your instrument.  From a coaching perspective, I use your audition material to inspire you to discover more effective ways to communicate through song -- approaching each song as a story or scene to be told from a unique, personal point of view.    

 

For many years, I have developed professional relationships with NYC casting directors and talent agents. As a result, I have gained first-hand knowledge as to what is - and what is not - successful in the audition room. 

You'll soon discover - I am in your corner!

 

Insightful.  Inspiring.  In your corner.

Due to the most recent COVD19 restrictions/mandates imposed on NYC, I will NOT be able to travel to NYC and teach in-person lessons for a while. 

  

In the meantime, I am doing a lot of ONLINE COACHINGS!! 

NEW RATE: $80/hour session 

Because of online (Zoom) opportunities, I have expanded my client base to Los Angeles, Scottsdale AZ, upstate NY, Augusta GA, Houston, Virginia and the Washington DC metro area!  

I continue to offer my regular services:

   1)  Repertoire coachings

   2)  Repertoire research

   3)  Creating unique AUDITION CUTS - and in YOUR KEY

   4)  Accompaniment tracks - uniquely suited to your audition cuts and YOUR KEY!

As great a resource as MusicNotes can be, their accompaniment tracks sound very "synthesized" and "metronomic", so for any one who is looking for accompaniment tracks for VIDEO SELF-TAPES, I am a great resource for accompaniment tracks that sound like someone is actually accompanying you!

I am in your corner!! -- JUST A CYBER-CLICK AWAY!

TESTIMONIALS

JULIET BENN
Broadway's TINA!  --       The Tina Turner Musical

 “I have no doubt that a big part of Juliet landing her first Broadway role at age 8 (ONCE ON THIS ISLAND) was due to the amazing coaching of Bryan Wade. Bryan is masterful in assessing a singer’s strengths and challenges. His technique and personality make him an ideal vocal coach for adults and children alike. I really appreciate Bryan’s patience and positive attitude. He was also instrumental in her booking her second Broadway (TINA!) role at age 10!

JAYDEN THEOPHILE

Young Simbah in Broadway's LION KING!

Working with Dr. Bryan Wade has been an invaluable experience for my son, Jayden. Due to his knowledge and experience in the field of musical theater, Bryan has provided vocal tips and tricks that Jayden has used to land roles on the Broadway stage. Bryan is always organized and prepared prior to our meetings, and ensures that my son stays active and engaged during lessons. Hiring Bryan to provide vocal coaching and support has been the best decision for Jayden’s career, and I would highly recommend anyone else to do the same.
