Music and Mentoring House - the smart choice
Founded and run by acclaimed American soprano Lauren Flanigan, Music and Mentoring House provides low cost, extremely affordable programs for singers, hands on mentoring for artists of all disciplines, professional introductions and a safe place for artists coming to study, audition or transition to New York City. For a limited number of artists (no more than 2) Music and Mentoring House offers a unique in-house residency program.
"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."
Programming at Music and Mentoring House includes:
No Bullsh!t Mondays: A monthly dinner with industry professionals who "tell it like it is".
Harlem Divas and Divos: An annual concert featuring musicians living and/or studying in New York's Harlem.
The Audition Boot Camp: A four week long summer intensive designed to get your fall audition repertoire coached, critiqued and on it's feet.
Making a Plan for the Future: Coaching Conversations: A bi-monthly discussion lead by Lauren Flanigan helping students design a program for success.

Lauren's annual benefit concert at New York's Symphony Space.
