Career Counseling
$75 / hour
With: Joe Santaniello

Interested in going to college in the arts? Maybe you want to know the difference between a conservatory or a university degree program for musical theatre or voice/opera? Maybe you are considering music education, music business, or music admin? Why does it seem that my high school teachers are only telling me to go into music education ? What is the audition process like ? Is double majoring a thing ? Let’s talk culminating careers and the many different career paths people with degrees in the arts can use their degree in that aren’t just focused on performance. Let’s find the plan that works for you and give you honest feedback from professionals that have a history of getting students into some of the top music conservatories and universities in the country. Career Counseling rates for students, parents, and joint meetings and occur over ZOOM (until further notice).

I have never seen my girls so excited. They really enjoyed going to Crystal theater.


Due to me being a busy mom and having three children I wish the teachers would tell the kids to tell their parents to check emails would help the parents be on track with what is going on. Or maybe give the kids a slip as a reminder. I guess the communication.

The class got kids interacting and building confidence. Christina was kind and welcome to suggestions. This was our first experience with Crystal Theatre and we loved it! A small, but much appreciated thing was that they brought the students outside at the end of each class so parents didn't have to get out of the car with other little ones.
