As with any instrument or art, you have to start somewhere and put work into. There are no shortcuts. However, a good instructor can quickly recognize what you wish to learn, zone in on those areas, and most importantly allow you the desire to keep play more. This type of guidance is the “shortcut”. For myself, I have 18+ years playing electric/acoustic guitar I have also attended Musicians Institute in Hollywood, CA playing with other musicians and learning from the best instructors.

Beginner level: we have to start with positioning of you fret and pick hand. You can change a bit of this up later. To start, I might hear you play something: one note, a melody, or a riff just to see where you’re at. Starting from scratch? That’s perfectly fine.

We will work on two aspects: working towards playing single note melodies and strumming/learning basic chords. I would encourage learning the latter as pretty much all contemporary songs can be accompanied by rhythm guitar. Changing ...

I've worked with Broadway actors, amateur adults, kids of all ages and with renowned theatre companies such as TADA!, Brooklyn Children's Theatre, STEPS on Broadway and The Neighborhood Playhouse for 20 yrs, teaching students how to reach their full potential as musical theatre performers.

I teach private on-line musical theatre coaching lessons to kids, age 7 and up, and adults of any age. If you are looking for a musical theatre teacher/coach, you've come to right place! Most coaches in musical theater are primarily pianists and don't have a background in voice, acting or performing. I have a background, not only as a musical director/pianist, but as a professional singer and actor in opera and musical theatre as well as teaching music, both privately and in classes for many years.

I focus on 3 main things:
1) your voice...teaching you to sing with a well-produced, flexible, expressive and healthy tone...
2) your musicianship...sightsinging, learning to understand and ...

Lawrence is a great coach for musical theater singing. When I was in the 5th grade I had an audition for this school called ppas, which is a preforming arts school. I love musical theater and I was taking lessons in neighborhood playhouse. Lawrence was one of the vocal coaches there so my mom got him as a private coach. He was really helpful in teaching me how to sing, he picked a really good song for me and he helped me a lot. I got into the school, and I probably wouldn't have if it weren't for him. We also got him as a coach for my laguardia audition, and although my voice had changed a lot he helped pick the right song and we worked on it. He helped me get in there as well. Would defininetly reccomend.
Maddie
My daughter has been taking Musical Theater with Lawrence for 7 years now. Lily has grown as a performer under his instruction. Lily describes his classes as fun, fun and fun. Lawrence is an exceptional teacher who provides his students with a supportive and collaborative environment and where he nurtures their creativity. His love of Musical Theater definitely shines through in his classes. He's great!
Miranda H.
Lawrence Rush is an inspiring and gifted teacher. My daughter took her first musical theater class with Lawrence when she was nine years old at the renowned Neighborhood Playhouse in NYC, and she has been a dedicated student of musical theater ever since. Lawrence created an atmosphere in class that was safe, fun, and joyful, and he made the kids feel that no idea was a bad one. Among the many classes that my daughter took with Lawrence, she particularly loved the elective where her class write and acted in their own original play. Lawrence managed to lead his students through a process that was both rigorous and exhilarating, culminating in one of the high points of my daughters young life. I am also an arts educator, and I know a gem of a teacher when I see one. Lawrence is truly one of those rare teachers who leave a lasting deeply positive impact on children, and I could not recommend him more enthusiastically.

"I am really enjoying my lessons with Joey with now. The greatest part about my experience is that I am actually practicing, and enjoying the rewards of practicing. He really knows how to inspire his students, so he is a great choice for guitarist's who have hit the "wall". I have improved greatly in my practice sessions because of his philosophies on practice he has shared with me. We work on mostly electric guitar, and since he is classical trained, his thoughts on left hand technique are extremely helpful!"
