It’s amazing what we can accomplish in class, he’s very good at time management. I feel like I go in with five hundred songs, and we touch base on every single one! I owe a lot to him, I definitely wouldn’t be booking without him."
MARIA BRIGGS - Music Man / Mean Girls / Anastasia / Frozen / Hello Dolly / Cats - Broadway

Every time I leave a lesson with him I feel like more in tune with myself, and an overall better singer. He is simply the best.

"From full blown technical lessons, to last minute sessions before a callback, Eddie gets you ready for whatever you need. He works quickly, creatively and positively and goes beyond how you sound. He is specifically fantastic with dancers, and makes you feel confident with what you have. He has been a vital piece of my progression as a singer and as a successful musical theater artist.”
MARY PAGE NANCE - A Beautiful Noise / The Great Comet / Finding Neverland - Broadway
"I love working with Eddie because he makes me believe that I can hold my own as a singer. As a dancer first, I am always terrified to open my mouth but his positive, infectious energy and thoughtful teaching techniques have helped me find my voice and get out of my head. He has helped me understand how to physicalize my singing as I would when I use my body to dance. Working with Eddie, I booked my first musical theatre job, signed with an agent, and have continued to book more work thanks to him and his brilliant coaching."
JOLINA JAVIER -The Phantom of the Opera - Broadway
"Working with Eddie is an absolute dream. As a dancer first, I am always hesitant about the vocal aspect of auditions but Eddie has helped me conquer that fear and become much more confident. Not only is he amazing at working on vocal technique but also at really delving into the characterization of a song. He finds unique, creative ways to pull the character out that stick with me as I go into an audition setting. Eddie also is incredibly committed to his students and on many last minute occasions has gone out of his way to fit me in to his schedule, plunk something out for me, or give some last minute audition advice. I am so thankful to have found Eddie and would recommend his expertise to anyone in the business!"
LAURA KAUFFMAN - Cats - National Tour
"Eddie is a singer's dream and on top of that, he is a great guy. He is a master at pinpointing what will take you to the next level vocally and he will guide you there with ease. I look forward to lessons with him and always leave feeling refreshed, rejuvenated, and prepared."
KEVIN ZAK - Waitress - National Tour
"Eddie has completely transformed my voice, my career, and my confidence. Before I met him, I thought there were limitations to my voice. And with Eddie's expertise and the tools he's given to me, I honestly believe there's nothing I can't sing. He's intuitive and caring, and his positivity is infectious. I owe so much to Eddie Schnecker."
LAURA CABLE - My Fair Lady - Eliza - Fireside Theatre
"After one coaching with Eddie, I literally refuse to go to anyone else to prepare for an audition. He helps me read the music, teaches me how to sing it technically, and coaches me on how to make it mine. I'm a ten times stronger and more authentic performer because of him!!"
