Bob Garrett, Vocal Coach and Teacher

Well, 2018 is just roaring along.. fast than a speeding bullet.

Its been exciting working on Steven Spielberg’s WEST SIDE STORY remake. So many clients submitting for Tony, Maria, Anita and Bernardo.  Its great to work on that brilliant music.. appreciating this score more than ever!

And, as always, it;’s a great pleasure working with Elle Fanning on her new Tiffany commercial. Its pretty spectacular and her voicing of MOON RIVER is going to be exquisite.

I’m also loving working on our  new musical, “LIMELIGHT”.  in preparation for a workshop in late Spring. rah

This score is pretty spectacular co-written by ten Grammy Award wining composers.. I couldn’t be more excited!

More news soon…

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL! Healthy, happy and prosperous 2018!

What a great way too start 2018… working on the soundtrack album for the feature film remake, of VALLEY GIRL, (now a musical),  coaching the inimitable Joshua Whitehouse. This is such a wonderful film, with Josh great in it, directed by Rachel Goldenberg and Musically Supervised by the great Harvey Mason, Jr.

I’m also excited to announce e new dates for my VOICE GYM – a new book in five weeks and a video of two songs from your new book. Please email me at bobgarrett5@gmail to register. The VOICE GYM will be held Thursday nights from January 25- to March 1st from 7- 10 PM.  Slots are filling up fast and I’m very much looking forward.

Happy Fall Everyone!

After a fantastic summer of vocal coaching on Rachel Goldenberg’s  feature remake of VALLEY GIRL, now a musical, I’m excited to soon be working on the soundtrack album with Harvey Mason, Jr. and the film’s star JOSHUA WHITEHOUSE… who is destined to become a household name.  Josh is fantastic in this film!

I’m also enjoying vocal coaching clients for the film IN THE HEIGHTS!  One of my clients, who shall remain nameless at the moment, has what I think is a very good shot at starring in this film.

Hope you all had  a great Halloween!




I’m excited to be directing Marilu Henner’s New Show opening a the Catalina Bar and Grill on October 6th and 7th!  The show is a blast with the amazing Mike Farrell musical directing.  Hope to see you!

And because of the Marilu’s show, I’ve had to push back the new Voice Gym start to Thursday October 12th.   There are only a couple of slots left so please email me at for details.  This will be the last Voice Gym this year…so I hope to see you.

Til next time, Happy Fall!



Two of my all-time favorite students/friends/people have just scored big and small screen leads:

Jessica Keenan Wynn, who I have worked with since she was fifteen years old, is following her Broadway Triumph as Cynthia Weil in  ” BEAUTIFUL:  The Carole King Musical”  with one of the leads in the big screen  “MAMA MIA: HERE WE GO AGAIN.” Jess will be playing Tanya, the young version of the Christine Baranski role. From Broadway star to film star, I couldn’t be more excited for dear Jessica!

And, after an extensive search, with a number of actresses testing, Jasmine Savoy Brown landed the much sought after second  lead in the upcoming ABC  drama series “FOR THE PEOPLE”,  from  Shonda Rhimes… sure to  be another smash from SHONDALAND.

GREAT congrats to  Jess and Jas ! Both so deserving and so rewarding to watch them shine!
In other news,  I’ll soon announce news on our new musical, “LIMELIGHT”.  Very exciting!
And, by popular demand, I will also be adding a second VOICE GYM.  Dates to be announced after LABOR DAY.
Happy end of summer all!


Its been the best summer… working with the irresistible Elle Fanning on “TEEN SPIRIT,” the great Joshua Whitehouse on “VALLEY GIRL”, and the legendary Jane Fonda on “THE BOOK CLUB”: Three new clients and friends… All memorable experiences that promise to make for  great film entertainment.

I had a great trip to Chicago to meet with great director Marc Bruni (“Beautiful”  -The Carole King Musical) and choreographer Josh Prince on our new musical “LIMELIGHT”. Great congrats to them both on their wonderful new musical, “TREVOR”.

My new Monday night VOICE GYM is sold out.. and I will be adding a new Thursday night VOICE GYM after the Labor Day holiday.. Stay tuned for exact dates.

For now, I’m off to Hawaii for an exciting vacation.

Talk to you all when I return the end of August…. Have a great end of Summer!


I’m thrilled to announce a new VOICE GYM beginning August 21st -October 2nd

Monday evenings 7-10 pm.  Five new audition songs and two videos made for online casting submissions. Please contact at

Hope to see you!


I was so thrilled to wake up to the news that many of my clients/friends got Emmy nominations this morning:

Jessica Lange and Judy Davis for FEUD, Judith Light for TRANSPARENT, Chrissy Metz for THIS IS US and Jane Fonda for GRACE and FRANKIE!  All actresses so deserving to be honored for their exquisite work!

I’m all excited to announce my new VOICE GYM beginning on August 14th and ending on September 25th (Labor Day off). You can email me at to register.

Lastly, I had such a blast working on VALLEY GIRL with the great Joshua Whitehouse et al.  It was such a pleasure working with director Rachel Goldenberg, musical director Harvey Mason, Jr and producers Steven Wolfe and Matt Smith.  No doubt this will be a wildly successful feature next Summer!  Bravo to all!

This has been a thrilling and rewarding time, working on three new films with three gifted, smart and delightful actors: Elle Fanning (“Teen Spirit”), Joshua Whitehouse (“Valley Girl, the Musical”, and the legendary, Jane Fonda (“the Book Club”) .

These are very special projects with very special actors and our work together has been among my favorite relationships and working experiences ever!

In addition, I am teaching a Musical Essence Class at the LA Songwriting School and finishing up the Spring Voice Gym.

As I continue work on the films, I am completing  a new draft of “SING!” , the musical I’ve been writing with Franne Golde based on an idea by Steve Binder.  Other composers include Brenda Russell, Stephen Bray, Marsha Malamet, Ari Hest, Lindsay Ray, Richard Kerr  et al.  We are planning a Fall workshop in Los Angeles  followed by two out of town tryouts and then Broadway.  This is a dream project and working on it with these composers has been magical. Stay tuned.

And Happy Spring to you all.
