"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!

"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. 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.

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. He coached Juliet for numerous auditions and was also instrumental in her booking her second Broadway role at age 10! I can’t imagine being on this journey without Bryan.

"Bryan has helped me find my true voice. After leaving the business for a couple of years I really wanted a vocal coach who was honest, constructively critical and fun to be around. I mean, I didn't even know there was a such thing as "vowel distortion". The awareness of my voice has heightened and my range has grown as a performer. I enjoy auditions, now, and because of that, I'm getting more opportunities to work."
