" I worked with Dennis via Skype while preparing for a lead audition. I was pleasantly surprised at the ease we were able to work by video.  I expected this format to be distracting and it was not; he might as well have been in the room with me. Dennis is straightforward (which I hold in high regard), not egotistical, and precise in his feedback.  He is extremely kind in his approach but never fails to make a powerful point. Dennis took my audition songs to a new level. He had me connecting to the text in a whole new way. By the time I went into the audition I was confident in my skills, laser focused, and in it for me. With Dennis’s help, I found my authentic-self in my audition and was able to enjoy the experience without a focus on the outcome; I was truly able to remain present. If you want that extra edge in your audition, I highly and happily recommend Dennis!"
