Matt’s Material Makeover is one-of-a-kind, specialty audition book-building service!  Work one-on-one with me to give that tired old audition book a major facelift and start singing songs you LOVE!

I have had a love for showtunes ever since I wore out my “Into the Woods” OBC cassette tape circa 1993 (and subsequently discovered my impeccable Bernadette Peters impression).

I’ve performed on stages both in New York and around the country.  I’m a member of Actors Equity Association and hold a BFA in Musical Theatre from the University of Cincinnati – College Conservatory of Music.

My knowledge of the Musical Theatre Rep canon ranges anywhere from Golden Age classics to more Contemporary rock shows.  My specialty is choosing the perfect material to match my client’s type and personality.

I will work interactively with you to evaluate your current audition book and enhance what is currently in there, while supplementing you with new material, in hopes of creating the “perfectly rounded book”.

You’ll start with a homework assignment that I will send you before our session, addressing your type and current material and problem areas.  We will then meet in person to discuss the list I’ve come up with for you.  After your review of my suggestions, I will provide you with up to 15 PDF’s of the songs that you’re interested in, based on what I have in my collection.

Booking NOW!  Don’t miss out!

Coachings usually take place out of a midtown coffee shop – who doesn’t want to caffeinate while talking about audition rep?!
(Note – Skype/FaceTime sessions are available at the same price for out-of-town clients!)

Because it’s TIME.  Don’t not show up to the audition because you don’t have “that song” in your book.  Don’t sing something “because my voice teacher told me to”, or sing something that you’re impartial to.  Take your artistry into your own hands and start discovering pieces you’ve never heard of before that will take your auditions, and career, to a whole new level.

The motto at Matt’s Material Makeover is “LOVE what you sing!”  So book with me today and let’s find those songs you LOVE!  Let MMM be a game-changer for you.

A book re-vamp at Matt’s Material Makeover is super-affordable, at $100/session.  I’m a firm believer that actors should be able to get coachings and still be able to pay the rent!

Want to go further with MMM and take your audition cuts to a performance-ready level?  Enlist the accompaniment services of the fabulous Chris Blasting to figure out the perfect audition cut of a piece, get accompaniment tracks, or just plain sing-through your new pieces before you get them in front of a casting room!  Chris offers a great discount for clients of MMM.
