MUSIC DIRECTION:
Create a world of sound.

We are interpretative artists. We get the pleasure of transforming other people's thoughts, words, and melodies through our own unique instruments. As a music director, I get the honor of guiding performers through this process while also getting the best seat in the house... the podium.

 

From developing new works to conducting orchestras to dueling pianos for crowds, art is collaboration. Being a music director is more than waving a stick and acting as a traffic cop. It is drawing out the best in everyone to create a rich aural landscape for the audience. 

 

My work as a singing actor gives me a rich understanding of how important effective musical leadership is to any performance. I approach each project with new eyes and truly enjoy the process of bringing many genres of music to life.

“He had the power to control the room and obtain the results and sound he wanted from our company, while still keeping a light and enjoyable air at all times. His innate kindness and ability to understand, comfort, and support our actors put them at ease and built their confidence, producing an improvement in them that was very much noticeable over the rehearsal process.”

“Curtis brings a positive energy to any room that he works in. He is patient, collaborative, and extremely talented. Working with him as the accompanist and vocal coach for my musical theatre audition class was where I felt most grateful to have him. He was always up to the task of helping performers find the right cut or feel for their music, he provided thoughtful feedback, and he was a real team player in the room.”
