Master Class Preparation

  • Please come to class vocally and physically warmed up with your prepared musical theater song/audition cut and a corresponding accompaniment track (please review individual class requirements for length of song).
  • Please have a chair nearby.
  • Even if you are working on a one-minute audition cut of a song for class, it is important that you know the full song. 
  • Please download Zoom prior to the class (
  • You will need to play your accompaniment track on a second device during the class. We recommend an external speaker, but a phone or tablet will also suffice. 
  • Get as close to your internet router as possible for the best streaming connection during the class.
  • Make sure that all other programs besides your internet browser are closed during the class, and that all notification alerts are turned off.

For accompaniment tracks: If you need a pianist to record an accompaniment track for your song, we suggest the following TWUSA music directors:

Alec Bart -

Michael Hicks -

Please note: Each music director has their own individual rates, policies, and timelines for recordings. Please reach out to them individually for more information!

We also recommend an app called “Appcompanist.”
