"As clichéd as it may sound, when musically directing, I have always tried to focus on more than just the music and always keep an awareness of the needs of the production as a whole. The element of collaboration is very important within musical theatre. Good communication and understanding are vital in ensuring that all elements of a production are cohesive and work together."
