Susan Derry with AU students - Be Yourself!

My goal is to create a strong, flexible voice with you that gives you the ability to fully express yourself as a performer, clearly and meaningfully.  Every voice is different; my approach is unique to you. A truly free sound, created in a balanced way through skill, craft and passion, will fill you with the confidence to share your sound with the world.    

I’ve spent the past five years serving as Adjunct Professor of Voice for Musical Theatre at both American University and George Washington University, as well as working with all levels in my private studio. My students have gone on to thriving careers in NYC, DC, and far beyond; they attend University of Michigan, University of Minnesota/ Guthrie Theater, Loyola Marymount, U Arts in Philly, Boston Conservatory, Catholic University, among many others. And I continue to study regularly with great NYC coaches and teachers as well as attend conferences around the country to stay current with the latest science.
