Music and Mentoring House - the smart choice
Founded and run by acclaimed American soprano Lauren Flanigan, Music and Mentoring House provides hands on mentoring, coaching , professional introductions, and a safe place for artists coming to study, audition or transition to New York City.
"I wanted to create an environment that is safe, affordable and supports artists of varying ages and disciplines on a variety of levels. I am interested in helping them meet their goals while also connecting them to a broader view of how we can make art and music in the 21st Century. I try and make it so that all of the residents needs are met here at the house so that what little money they have can go towards lessons, outside coachings, books, music, local transportation and leisure activities."
Students are treated to monthly dinners with industry professionals and are provided with opportunities to work with, coach and perform with Lauren free of charge. Full time residents are expected to create a unique artistic event to benefit the immediate community around the house and to participate in Comfort Ye... Lauren's annual benefit concert at New York's Symphony Space.
Students have complete open access to her extensive library of sheet music, opera scores, biographies, poetry, plays, cd's dvd's and reference material. Students are aided in purchasing appropriate audition attire and the purchase of scores, music and other research material.
Residents are provided with furnished dorm-style accommodations and complete board, wifi, wii, TV, DVD, washer/dryer, all linens, 3 meals and weekly coachings.
