Why do Music Theater with us at Music Pillars?

That is an excellent question - and here are some excellent (well, we hope you’ll think they are) answers:


Our rehearsal schedule can work for the busy families whose children are in multiple activities…it doesn’t have to be one or the other.

Take a look at our rehearsal schedule on this page. You’ll see that we do indeed have a handful of Saturday rehearsals in addition to our weekly rehearsal, BUT the rehearsals are in the afternoon typically after most sport activities are done for the day. Depending on the day, not all cast members will be called to all rehearsals. A more detailed schedule will be sent out after casting. Music Theater is intense, and requires a time commitment - we make no apology for that. BUT we have tried to make it as “busy-family” friendly as possible. Please understand that the rehearsal process does not end at the studio - YOU need to put in the work at home prior to the next rehearsal so we collectively progress as a cast!

A little Jingle Bell Arrangement for fun!

Participating in Theater is about much more than just being on stage…its about learning and developing life skills like becoming an effective communicator, conveying confidence, learning to support others when they are scared, facing/overcoming fears, and SO MUCH MORE!

Students will be taught and led by Melanie who has performed as Dorothy herself! Melanie has also played the lead in many musicals, as well as choreographed many other professional musical theater productions. She currently is the choreographer for Star Theater’s Production of Mama Mia, and just completed performing in Sweeney Todd. Students will get a chance to see professional modeling and mentoring from Melanie. She will be supported and assisted by Scott Spurgiesz who also teaches Music Theater at several private schools in San Diego, and was an actor with the Walt Disney Company before deciding to pursue music full-time.
