This is Why We Do What We Do​

This is Why We Do What We Do

Michael Karl has proved to be an invaluable resource to our family as we navigated the college audition process. He is extremely knowledgeable, talented and relates well to his students. Additionally, he has put together a team of professionals that can address any needs you might have. I would recommend Michael Karl Studio to anyone wishing to improve in the areas of music and theater, especially to those students planning to pursue these areas in a college setting.

Shelly L. — Student's Mom

We have worked with Michael Karl Studio for six months as our son has prepared for college auditions in Musical Theatre. Although we were late getting started, Michael and his team quickly caught us up and our son was well-prepared for his audition pre-screens as well as his in-person auditions. Michael is a highly organized professional who was instrumental in keeping us on track as we navigated the maze that is college musical theatre. Additionally, Michael and Madeline spent time getting to know Alex so that they could help him choose and prepare vocal and acting audition materials that were relevant and meaningful to him. Their coaching has been top notch, and they have formed relationships with Alex that have made the process enjoyable for him. Zach prepared a dance routine that was professional but manageable and pushed Alex to give his best (even when that meant multiple takes). Jason Vail is a fantastic photographer who completely captured Alex's personality in his headshots. Overall, we could not be happier with the level of commitment and the quality of the work provided by Michael Karl Studio.

Michael and Madeline are THE BEST! My voice and acting have improved tremendously since I started lessons, and my confidence has grown as I've learned to be comfortable in my vulnerabilities. With a team that is genuinely invested in my vocal health and success, there is no one I recommend more!

I started acting a year ago with Michael, and he helped me with my college auditions. I was accepted to two top conservatories and could not be any happier with Michael's service! He does everything he can to help my practice and can't explain how grateful I am to have such a great mentor. Highly recommend.

I'm beyond ecstatic that I found Michael Karl. I'm gearing up for my college auditions and he's been the absolute best. I honestly don't know if I'd gotten this far without his guidance.

I started taking acting lessons from Michael in January for my college auditions. He has been amazing in helping me prepare. I had 8 auditions and I have so far been accepted into 3 of them! I recommend him if you are interested in taking acting lessons or even voice!

Michael has managed to take the weight of the world off of my shoulders with his work. His teaching style is effective and his work has proven to be beneficial to me as a performer. He works extremely hard to ensure that his students exceed their point of potential and excel in the areas they need work in. As an aspiring young artist and performer, he has been a mentor to me and provided support for me in ways I didn't believe possible.
