I want to work with you on everything!! I am a true Liz acolyte and grateful from the depth of my heart for your gift, and the way you lead people from a place of fear to a place of freedom and beauty.”
– Lear DeBessonet, director, Obie Award winner and founder of Public Works
I have had the pleasure of knowing and working with Liz for some time now. While I have always marveled at her knowledge of music and technique, it is her unique understanding of what each individual performer needs that impresses me most. She continues to reach singers of all types with her methods, and her ability to improve overall performance while protecting the instrument is astounding.”
– Tom Kitt, Tony-Award and Pulitzer prize winning composer of Next to Normal; composer of Bring It On; 2013 Tony Awards; composer of If/Then. Orchestrator for Upcoming SpongeBob Musical
Liz has such incredible intuition about the human voice. Her ability to pin point the problem and communicate a solution is mind-blowing to me… in my 18 years in NY, I have never worked with a teacher who was able to communicate as well as Liz. She has changed the way I sing. To hear it, it is the same voice, but how I produce sound is easier, healthier and more fun!”
– Lauren Kennedy, actor Artistic Director of Hot Summer Nights Theatre Raleigh
Liz’s tireless enthusiasm and expertise have empowered me physiologically and emotionally to become a better singer than I had ever imagined. It’s like physical therapy and good, old- fashioned psycho-therapy for your vocal cords!”
– Ana Gasteyer
I couldn’t have done eight shows a week on ‘American Idiot’ without what I learned from Liz Caplan. Liz gave us a lot of physical training and warm-ups and things to do to warm up the voice because it goes against all human instinct to sing and shout that much over eight shows a week. Your body starts to shut down at a certain point. And so you have to rely on training and these little tricks and exercises. Liz is amazing. She works with everyone and she definitely saved all of our voices when she came on to ‘American Idiot’.”
– John Gallagher, Jr., JERUSALEM, AMERICAN IDIOT, Tony Award winner for SPRING AWAKENING, RABBIT HOLE
Liz saved my voice. I was running into problems that I didn’t know how to fix. Liz went right to work and she helped my find my voice again… I was grateful to be able to thank her from the stage of the Beacon Theater when I accepted a Tony Award this year. I could NOT have done it without her. Today, I’m singing with more confidence than I ever have, and more importantly, because of the technique Liz has ‘gifted’ me,I can trust that it will always be there.”
– Nikki M. James, Tony Award winner for Best Leading Actress in BOOK OF MORMON
Liz Caplan is one of the major reasons why I was able to perform as The Guy in Once for as long as I did. I will recommend her for the rest of my life as someone who knows the voice, knows the body, and more importantly knows the mind and the heart and helps you learn how to sing out from those places. She’s brilliant. She’s like a therapist and a vocal coach wrapped into one.”
– Steve Kazee (2012 Tony Award Winner, Best Actor in a Musical for Once)
The demands put on the cast of American Idiot are truly punishing, and the fact their voices maintain such character, vitality, musicality, and dynamism is a testament to the miraculous work that Liz Caplan has done.”
– Michael Mayer, Tony Award Winning Director of Spring Awakening and Thoroughly Modern Millie, Director of Broadway’s Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Director and book writer of American Idiot
When I went to Liz I had a pre-nodular condition, and one doctor told me he would have to operate. I went on vocal rest for about one month and then started lessons. With Liz’s help I’ve been able to belt my butt off, and haven’t had serious problems again (Knock on wood!). Liz also helps me find audition material and coaches me on songs. And best of all, she always puts a smile on my face!”
– Kerry Butler, CATCH ME IF YOU CAN, ROCK OF AGES, Tony Award nominee for XANADU, LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS, HAIRSPRAY
Liz uses her compassionate eyes and ears and hands to immediately zero in on exactly what needs to be done, whether in an emergency or in the long term. She is effective, practical, smart, loving, lighthearted, and continually invested in the success and health of her students. I’m so glad that I chose her to help me work with the actors placed under my care.”
– Deborah Abramson, children’s music director, Matilda; associate music director, Spring Awakening
When I first met Liz, I could tell immediately that she’s someone who ‘gets it.’ Her understanding of technique and the physiology of singing is staggering – but more importantly, she fully grasps and inspires the art of it. She’s magnificent at freeing the voice of blocks and hang-ups without removing the unique qualities of the singer. Not to mention she’s a ton of fun. I can’t recommend her highly enough.”
– Charlie Alterman, Music Director of the 2013 Tony Award Winning Revival of PIPPIN, GODSPELL and NEXT TO NORMAL
We are preparing our Music Dance Theatre Senior Showcase for New York and looking to have a vocal Master Class while we are there. Every time this comes up we think of Liz Caplan first because the Master Class that she did for our students 3 years ago was so wonderful and beneficial.”
– Gayle Lockwood, Brigham Young University Vocal Faculty
Liz Caplan changed my life. Period. She can’t help it, actually. She changes lives on a daily basis… She is a sanctuary from everything that seems difficult or scary in our profession… She is a mentor, a guru, and a healer with a heavy dose of genius.”
– Nicole Parker
