This year TCF is accepting new students without an audition requirement!   We know that you have many auditions and recordings to prepare and do not want a recording to prevent anyone from attending TCF.  All that we require this year is a short biography.

      Register as an auditor and attend all masterclasses, lectures and workshops as an audience member. You can also register for lessons for an additional fee ($75/30-minutes). Lessons are available on a limited basis.
