Chuck Hudson Private Coachings

  • Potomac Vocal Institute 1920 G St NW (map)

Sign up now for an hour long private coaching with stage director Chuck Hudson (pianist is included).

Preparation Request from Chuck:


·       Your aria must be memorized “off book.” For monologues we can work with the text in front of you.

·       Please bring 2 copies of the music or monologue: one for the accompanist and one for me. Please do not bring your bound score or a copy with lots of music notes on it, but a clean copy. If your piece is not in French or English, I will need a legibly written word-for-word translation on the line of music: not a translation on another page, and not the existing English translation of the piece which is not word specific. I prefer my copy to be “loose pages” and not taped together as you would for an accompanist.

·       Please be familiar with the entire opera or play and not just the aria or monologue. Our work of creating Action will be informed by the context of the selection within the entire work.

·       PLEASE NOTE We will work on Audition Material such as an Aria or Song from a Musical. We will not work on Art Song or Lieder. Singers who wish to work on The Doll Song from HOFFMAN, Glitter and Be Gay from CANDIDE, Mein Herr Marquis from DIE FLEDERMAUS, or “scenas” like Ophelia’s Mad Scene from HAMLET, Max’s Aria from DER FREISCHUTZ, Non monsiuer mon mari from LES MAMMELLES de TIRESIAS, or Zerbinetta’s Aria from ARIADNE: these pieces generally require me to stage the aria rather than coach the aria. If you would like to work on these pieces, please let me know in advance as they require special considerations and will require a longer period of time or number of sessions.
