Ava Kuntz Headshot 752575

The skills I acquired in my 8 years at Musical Theater Academy Orange County have proven to be invaluable in my pursuit of a career in the performing arts. The comprehensive training not only enhanced my technical proficiency but also cultivated a deep appreciation for collaboration, discipline, and the importance of storytelling through the medium of musical theater. These skills have not only shaped me as a performer but also equipped me with a versatile toolkit that extends beyond the stage. Jimmy’s expert coaching helped me to win numerous vocal competitions, notably The Music Center Spotlight (Classical Voice) in 2021, and NATS National High School Musical Theater also in 2021. I’m currently pursuing a degree in Vocal Performance at Vanderbilt University. – Ava Rae Kuntz, MTAOC Alumni 2021
