Maggie is truly a one of a kind coach!

Victoria D'Orazio

Maggie is truly a one of a kind coach! In just one short hour, she helps me to dig deep into my material, analyze the music, find incredibly specific moments and beats in the cuts, and find ways to personally connect to my pieces, making my work really stand out. Working with her makes me feel SO much more confident about what I’m bringing into the audition room. No matter what piece we work on, she always gives me new ways to take it to the next level. Her ideas are insightful and exciting, and make “doing the work” so much fun. She is full of knowledge and kindness, and is an absolute joy to train with!

Maggie has helped build a confidence in Aubrey, I didn’t know existed.

Jen Alberta (mother of Aubrey)

Maggie has been training my 11 year old daughter, Aubrey, for the past year. She has helped Aubrey grow so much as a singer and actor. Every audition she goes on, she is prepared and ready for whatever they ask of her. Maggie has helped build a confidence in Aubrey, I didn’t know existed. Maggie was able to make a connection with Aubrey and bring her real life theatre experiences into their training sessions. Since Aubrey has been training with Maggie, she has been cast as Jane Banks in Mary Poppins and Nala in The Lion King. Aubrey looks forward to her voice lessons each week and I love watching her grow!

Highly recommend to anyone learning how to break into the professional theatre industry!!!

Aileen Bergin

Maggie has such a great handle on the business and what it's like to be a young actor in NYC. I'm a college student and Maggie has helped me out so many times. I love how she really lets her audience questions drive the topics she covers. The Actor Aesthetic blog and podcast are honest, informative, and relevant. It's one thing to get tips on the business from teachers and mentors who have already been through it years ago, but Actor Aesthetic is centered around the industry TODAY and what it's like to be in the audition room right now. More so, Maggie is a great example of an actress who really knows how to market herself. Highly recommend to anyone learning how to break into the professional theatre industry!!!
