HANDS ON GUIDANCE
COLLEGE APPLICATION ASSISTANCE
In your sessions we will:
Discuss what motivates you to pursue a degree in Performance.
Create an organized list of schools that match your priorities as an Artist.
Edit Personal Statements and other application essays to make sure you feel confident in your writing.
Find Audition Material that highlights who you are and what you're made of!
For Acting Majors, this will normally be two contrasting monologues.
For Musical Theatre Majors, this will also include two contrasting songs.
Workshop your material and allow you to explore them with direction, guidance, and an open mind!
I would not consider these singing lessons..and would encourage this to be in addition to lessons rather than in replacement of.
Practice 'Mock' auditions and create a warm-up that you can bring with you to ground yourself the day of your audition!
I work on a sliding scale so that my services can be as accessible as possible - I believe everyone deserves the opportunity to show these schools who they are and where they came from, no matter their financial situation. I try to be as flexible and understanding as possible, especially during these times, so please don't hesitate to CONTACT ME and we can discuss rates further! If you feel comfortable, include a little about yourself along with what you would like to focus on in our sessions together.
FREE Q&As for parents and students who are beginning the BA/BFA Program search. This is to learn more about
who I am and what I can offer you throughout your application and audition process. Together, we will
walk through the audition requirements for admittance at top BA and BFA programs, how to choose the program that's right for you, the audition season timeline, and how to choose the best audition material.
Students who choose to pursue individual preparation will work with me to discuss their college aspirations, and to select and prepare the best audition material to showcase their talent! Outside of scheduled coaching sessions, I will remain in regular contact with students and parents, serving as an advisor throughout the entire audition season. Coaching sessions are available to book as a single session or in monthly packages. Additional services are also available such as professional-level video recordings (necessary as a pre-audition requirement for some programs and potentially for Unified Auditions), website building, and assistance updating your headshot and resume.
College Alumni Forums
In these online forums, graduates of a wide variety of notable college theater programs will lead an open forum Q&A style discussion with high school students. Here, college graduates will share their personal experiences about the programs they attended - including their curriculum, performance opportunities, senior showcases, costs, career guidance, study abroad options and campus life. Unlike college admissions reps whose job it is to sell a school to perspective students, with these College Alumni Forums you’ll have the opportunity to ask specific questions and get honest feedback that will enable you to compare programs in a tangible way.
Parent & Student Testimonials
Bre’s enthusiasm and passion for the work turned the objectively intense college audition process into something fun. It’s impossible to not love working with Bre. I never thought I’d feel anything other than stress working on my monologues, but I looked forward to our weekly Zoom sessions. Before working with Bre, I felt completely unprepared for what lay ahead, but Bre’s welcoming spirit instantly put me at ease. Keenly observant, Bre guided me to monologues that fit me perfectly, while still challenging me enough to grow as a performer. My monologue selections were complimented by almost every auditor I encountered. Bre not only shapes her students into excellent auditioners, but she also cultivates artists. Come audition days, I felt beyond prepared; Bre had me do many mock auditions with experienced individuals working in the industry, so I knew exactly what to expect. I feel so lucky to have had many BA and BFA programs to choose from, and it’s all thanks to Bre. I’m excited to say that I’ll be studying acting next year at Pace University’s International Performance Ensemble. Thanks to Bre, I’m going to a highly competitive program that is the perfect fit for me. Bre, you are amazing!

Bre Tomey's passion is contagious; if it wasn’t for her, I wouldn’t have been able to follow in her footsteps and graduate from Tisch. She meets you precisely where you’re at with nothing but love in her heart and a tremendous will to explore and have fun. Whether you’re looking for guidance on getting into competitive performing arts colleges to technical voice/text work, she knows it all, and I couldn’t recommend Bre more.
