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.

"I thought I had it pretty together, and then along came Dr. Bryan Wade. I am pretty clever at coming up with ideas that are somewhat unconventional but keeping in step with requirements. Then Bryan Wade came along and meticulously guided me into taking musicianship seriously - as well as assessing my voice and its nuances and capabilities.
I carry with me in the show every night my awareness of strength and sound in my voice, using it masterfully.
Dr. Wade is my "go-to" guy!
Currently: Valjean in upcoming US National Tour of LES MISERABLES
Broadway: Jesus Christ Superstar, National Tour: Phantom of the Opera, Les Miserables
Bryan Wade is the type of vocal coach that you want in this business. His insight into the industry and what casting directors are looking for has helped me, not only become a stronger singer and actor, but also to book my Broadway debut. Bryan will push you to discover who you are as a performer and what you bring in the room and THAT is invaluable today!
If you are looking for a coach that will push you in the right direction while improving your vocal technique and becoming a great friend --look no further:
Dr. Wade is the coach you want from your first audition to your final callback.
