"Seth coached me for many important auditions, and I got my
Equity card after working with him!"
--Ashleigh Chilton

"If you're looking for a treasure-trove of new and fabulous audition material,
Seth is the way to go!"
-Melanie Smock

"Seth is amazing at finding material. He has a huge library on his computer, and in one hour was able to give me so many new songs to work on for my book, that it will easily take me a few months to prepare and polish all of them."
-- Michael Santora

"Seth is a terrific vocal coach; every minute of the session is well spent, productive, and, of course, fun and hilarious. Seth does not let you leave until you feel completely confident with your audition material. Every time I leave Seth I feel I have: 1) a snappy and clear audition cut b) conquered any vocal troubles, c) become completely comfortable and specific with the drama/action of the piece. Seth's positive and quirky energy helps actors to relax into their audition material and ground their work in their unique selves. He is a gem."
--Liz Kimball
