Bradley Vieth

Assistant Professor of Musical Theatre

My teaching is based on a unique approach to each student. I challenge the skill set while acknowledging accomplishments and growth. The use of positive reinforcement is paramount: noting the tiniest step in growth gives the confidence to progress more rapidly. The student’s instinct should be taken into account at all times and nurtured, even superceding technical demands. Instinct is the key to the student’s individuality and development as a performance artist.”

Bradley was formerly coordinator of the BFA Musical Theatre Program at the University of Wisconsin Stevens Point, Visiting Assistant Professor of Theatre at Western Kentucky University and Weber State University, and Senior Lecturer in Musical Theatre at Edge Hill University in the UK. He received his education at Oberlin College Conservatory (BM) and the University of Texas at Austin (MM and pre-doctoral study).
