David Friedman, acclaimed film and theatre composer, conductor, record producer, teacher, lecturer and writer joined Broadway Theatre Project’s 2013 season once again this year as a guest artist. In his Master Class, Friedman taught the apprentices techniques from his book “The Thought Exchange” that allowed them to differentiate thought and perception. He then worked with individual apprentices on their songs, guiding them to discover new methods to honestly convey emotion while singing.
David’s Broadway credits include: “Grease”, “Joseph & The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat”, “Song and Dance” (conductor), “Beauty & The Beast” (music supervisor and vocal arranger), “Chasing Nicolette” (composer). His film credits include: “Trick”, “Aladdin” and “The King of Thieves”, “Beauty & The Beast”, “Pocahontas” and “The Hunchback of Notre Dame” (conductor and Arranger).
