"We had the pleasure of hiring Michael Mott for our youth summer STAGE READY camp. There were 30+ students ranging from 12-17 years of age. Michael Mott's expertise and teaching style have left a positive impression on every student in the class.
His ability to guide aspiring singers through vocal techniques and audition preparation was extremely valuable.
It is evident that Michael knows how to support, inspire and foster growth for his students.
The confidence in each performer grew strong each day they spent with Michael.
The masterclass covered a diverse range of topics, catering to both beginners and experienced individuals.
Each session was thoughtfully designed and custom to the students' needs.
Mott created a warm and welcoming environment, encouraging questions and discussion.
We can't wait to have Michael back with us next year!"
Executive Director, Broadway Theatre League, New York
“We were very thankful to have Michael Mott come offer his knowledge, craft, and expertise to our students of The Professional Performance Prep. His artistic eye saw through the obstacles that our students were stumbling over and he always sought out a way to correct them.
Michael Mott encouraged each of our vocalists to push themselves and to find new, innovative ways to explore undiscovered parts of their voices. One of our students (who has taken almost all of our master classes and privates), went on to say that he was one of the best teachers she worked with and appreciated his “attention to detail” and “ability to fix” anything she struggled with.
We thank Michael Mott again for stopping by and visiting our studio!”

“Michael Mott did a master class for my high school Musical Theatre students, wherein they each sang a solo for him and he gave them feedback.
I was absolutely floored by Michael’s insight – he treated each of them completely differently, focusing on a different element of technique or performance for each student. I was particularly impressed with how quickly and clearly he was able to convey techniques and ideas
for them to work on in a short amount of time. I couldn’t recommend Michael Mott more highly.”
Artistic Director at Arizona Conservatory for Arts & Academics
"Michael Mott provides students with a level of excellence in teaching that we look to provide in every Studio Tenn experience.
His charming and compassionate teaching approach gives students a safe and fun working environment to grow exponentially in a compressed amount of time. It was a honor and joy to have Michael join the Studio Tenn family, and we are looking forward to future classes and artistic endeavors with him.”
Artistic Director, Studio Tenn, Tennessee
"I've found that when I've brought in other artists, some were either great with the students, but their content lacked a higher level of substance that I was hoping for, or I've had the opposite where the artist presented material that was too advanced for their stage of development and didn't really know their audience. Michael's class was a wonderful combination of age-appropriate discussion and activities and he was also able to captivate the student's attention while being highly relatable. They ask often when he's coming back again!”
High Tech High School Musical Theatre, New Jersey
“Empire Dance & Performing Arts Studio had a masterclass with Michael Mott and our students learned so much!
We had each student perform their song and/or monologue for Michael and he gave such great feedback on how they can improve, what the industry is looking for and just an overall great technique for performing and auditioning. Michael gave some great tips from his own career and even taught the kids one of his own original songs, "Get Up On My Feet", which the students later had the privilege of performing at Michael's Concert,"Michael Mott and Friends" with two other Broadway stars! Overall, his masterclass is a must!”
