Max trained for four years as a performer at East 15 Acting School, graduating with a BA(hons) in World Performance. Max has worked professionally as an actor, actor-musician, composer and last year was the Musical Director for Cinderella with Starburst and is returning to the Musical Director role with Starburst’s Aladdin this Christmas.
Having trained at the top-rated drama school in the UK, Max is no stranger to hard work, discipline and performance. He draws influence from his study of global performance styles from Japan and China to Brazil and Africa, and re-characterizes them for the western performer.
As a Musical Director and vocal coach, Max has worked with conservatoire students, professional musicians and children. He has performed in pantomimes, musicals and plays covering a range of styles and approaches, however, Max’s interests and experience don’t stop at performing and musical direction, having worked as a Stage Manager at repertory and fringe theatres across the country.
Discipline, fun and energy are the key staples to vocal training. Max looks forward to leading the vocal teaching and nurturing the students at Starburst Theatre Academy into strong performers ready for whatever we can throw at them.
