"I am so happy that I met and worked with David Hibbard. The work he did with me and the way in which he brought such happiness and fun to his teaching gave me a new passion for my singing. He taught me to be confident in who I was as a performer and to really "go for it" when I am singing. His singing methods and his way of delivering a song were instrumental in my landing a role in Mary Poppins. Thank you for all you do David." - Noah Marlowe

"I'll never forget the moment I recognized David's lessons in a Broadway performance. From the audience I was enjoying a woman singing her song and I suddenly thought, 'Oh my god, that's exactly what David was trying to teach us,' and then a moment later in the song, 'And he taught us that too!' It was then that I realized that everything David had to say was worth writing down, remembering, and working to perfect it throughout the rest of my career."
Nick Spangler… Matt in The Fantasticks and Giant World Premiere and The Book of Mormon

“I never had David in College, but he was so highly spoken of that I sought him out after I graduated for private coachings. David is a remarkable teacher and coach, and I would recommend him to anyone. He is so incredibly passionate and excited about getting great things out of a student, that there was a freedom to try new things. Some I didn't know I could do. He has an amazing way of communicating so that I understood exactly how to get to where I needed to be to be able to do great story telling. He also saw things in me that I may not have been able to see, and always did everything he could to help me move forward. I felt so comfortable working with David, and every lesson put me in a much better place than when I arrived. David helped me have confidence and trust in the work I was doing, and it helped me focus on the important things, the acting and the story telling. I think being able to tell a story is really what will get you a job, and I am so grateful to David for starting me on that path!”
Carrie Manolakos, Sophie, Mamma Mia!/Wicked

“I am forever indebted to David and his class. The skills I learned from him are some of the most effective tools I have as an actor. The notebook I kept from his class is like my audition bible! I honestly review it before most of my auditions. With David's help, I now feel confident and totally capable of approaching any new material. When it comes to teaching the art of acting through song, nobody compares to David!”
Timothy Hughes, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang

“Working with David was one of the most valuable parts of my professional training. I continue to use the skills I learned in his class with each new song, and recommend it for any actor looking to learn how to approach musical theater material.”
Stephanie Rothenberg, How To Succeed In Business

"David Hibbard was one of my favorite teachers at NYU. His teaching style is right on the money- thoughtful and kind yet practical and so intelligent. He is able to articulate the wisdom he has acquired from years in the business so well that everyone I saw work with him had at least one really important "ah-hah!" moment almost right away. And, he's just so much fun. He's one of the few teachers I would recommend to anyone, at any stage of their career, any time."
Suzanna Neeley Bridges, Les Miz
