In the first episode of #BDTR, I teach a riff from Beyonce's "Halo" to my castmate, Briana Carlson-Goodman, who plays Eponine in the US national tour of Les Miserables.

In episode 2, I break down the crazy Mariah riff from "Lead The Way" (from Glitter) with Lauren Wiley, who plays Cosette in the US national tour of Les Miserables.

In episode 3, I break down three difficult/advanced/awesome Jazmine Sullivan riffs from a video of her singing "Home" from The Wiz when she was only 11 years old. Our special guest in Episode 3 is the lovely and talented Brittney Johnson from the ensemble of Les Miserables.

This episode features a male vocalist from the cast of Les Mis, and is not to be missed.

A special holiday episode featuring riffs from Christina Aguilera's version of "The Christmas Song"!

This episode features a friend of mine from my time at Penn State. Nathan Gardner is an actor currently living in Chicago.

Introducing a brand new kind of BDTR episode: BDTR Quick Riffs are shorter, bite-sized episodes that pack the same punch. This one features a "most-requested" riff that sounds difficult, but is easier than you think!

This episode features our first guest by video submission. Mary Kathryn drove two hours to Norfolk, VA with two of her best friends and her chorus teacher for our morning shoot in April. She graduates this weekend from Cosby High School!

Episode 8 features a **MOST REQUESTED** riff by the incredible Tori Kelly! The riff has more than 40 notes in it and the episode turned out to be a BEAST. Our special guest is 16 year-old Bay Area local, Cristina Oeschger.

I've received a bunch of requests to break down my riffs from the song "Quiet" by Jonathan Reid Gealt. Enjoy!

This is my first attempt at editing my own videos! Welcome to a new kind of BDTR: Casual Friday Edition! Thanks to Julie Mombourquette for being my first guest for the BDTR: Casual Friday edition!

Hey guys! In this "Casual Friday" edition, I break down Shoshana Bean's riff from "Oh Bless The Lord"(Godspell) with one of the little girls on tour with me. Erin Cearlock is only 10 years old but is wise beyond her years.

Hey guys! I'm back with another BDTR: Casual Friday! My guest, Patrick V. Sisson was so fun to work with! He came in already knowing the riff I had planned so I had to break a new one down on the spot! AHHHH Enjoy!

Hey guys! In this edition, my best friend, Andrew, and I take a road trip to visit my old sleepaway camp, French Woods! On the way, we decided to film a quick riff. Andrew Hodge is a genius and the funniest person I've ever met. The end.

Hey All! I took a road trip with my best friend to visit my sleepaway camp, French Woods, on August 15th. In my master class, I mostly worked with students on their musical theatre pieces, but this kid, Mason, seemed like he had a knack for pop, so I asked if he would break down a riff with me for YouTube! He was such a sport! And how adorable is he???

In this installment, I break down the Patina Miller riff from Pippin with my friend, Erin Clemons. Enjoy!

A few months ago, I taught a master class at the Natomas Charter school in Sacramento, Ca. I had my BDTR sidekick, Ben, film the class for fun and we ended up with some great footage! Enjoy!
*Thanks to Robin Reyes for being my guinea pig in class!
*Thanks to Kaeli Patchen for submitting an awesome opening jingle! @KPatchez

I finally convinced my mom to be on BDTR! She's kind of shy on camera but she ended up being hilarious! Enjoy:)

In this episode, I break down the Joshua Ledet (American Idol season 11) riff from Josh Groban's, "You Raise Me Up". He does an awesome job for someone who is NOT comfortable riffing! Thanks Westy!
