College Audition Pro


Passion. Experience. Mentoring.


Each year acceptance to the top BFA and BA Acting and Musical Theatre Programs becomes increasingly competitive and this past year the numbers were record breaking. These top universities audition 500 - 2,000 students and accept between 12 - 45, thus making these majors the most selective for college-bound students.

College Audition Pro (CAP) provides one-on-one audition coaching for college-bound performers and prepares them from start to finish during their college audition process. Each student is coached in-person and on an individual basis.

Because the College Audition Pro Method is so personalized and time intensive Susan limits the number of students she accepts each year to 15 and Keelin limits the number of students to10.
