"The BEST musical theatre camp my daughter has ever attended. Lyndsey managed to give each child the individual time to help them build and hone in on their strengths and shine as individuals as well as work with the entire cast to create a cohesive performance that amazed us. My daughter learned more in the two weeks of the Fine Tuned Performance camp than she has at any other theatre program she has attended. Outside of camp Lyndsey Schaeffer has worked with both of my daughters vocally for years and I would never use anyone else. They have worked with her to prepare for auditions. She assists them with the entire process vocal, acting and dance coreography. My oldest daughter worked with her to achieve a place in select choir in middle school as well as the Ridge a capella and even a place on the theatre stage when she decided to go out of her comfort zone. My eighth grade daughter has been cast in every production during her middle school years after successfully working with Lyndsey prior to all of her auditions. Lyndsey has a sweet, caring and professional nature. My children love working with her and we will continue to attend her camps as well as schedule voice and audition prep with her."

"My son attended the two week musical theatre camp last summer and had an amazing experience. I was so impressed by all of the students performances at the end of camp. It was incredible to see how much the kids had all been able to learn in terms of choreography, acting and music in such a short time. The songs that were picked for the individual students to sing demonstrated how well Lyndsey Schaefer knew the voices of each of her students and enabled each one to shine. My son's confidence in his acting grew. The pointers that he learned in terms of how to audition were so helpful and instrumental in his auditions this fall. My son has participated in many different theater programs over the years and by far this was his best experience! I highly recommend Fine Tunes Performing Arts."

"We could not be more thrilled to be writing this review of Fine Tuned Performing Arts! It is an AMAZING camp led by Lyndsey Schaefer who is absolutely wonderful. This camp is for everyone from those kids who have never stepped foot on a stage, to those with experience in lead roles. Everyone is given an opportunity to excel regardless of his or her experience in an enriching and supportive environment. Mrs. Schaefer takes the time to give individual attention and she creates a positive vibe while making it so much fun for all. She is a kind and caring person who knows just how to tap into the individual talent and potential of every student. She gives everyone an opportunity to shine and shine they did! I was completely amazed by what was accomplished in just two short weeks and was moved to tears during the final performance! Every single student on that stage gave a stellar performance and the camaraderie exhibited among the kids during the show was infectious, something I was proud to see my daughter a part of. The experience my daughter had at this camp was exceptional in every way. She was one of the students with lesser experience yet she excelled and performed beautifully and with confidence during the showcase! She applied the knowledge and confidence she gained to audition for her high school musical and is thrilled to be a part of the production as a 9th grader! Fine Tuned Performing Arts has made a huge difference for my daughter and she cannot wait until next summer to sign up again. Truly the most memorable and meaningful camp experiences she has ever had! Highly recommend!"

"Lyndsey is one of the most kind, caring, and compassionate teachers I've ever worked with. I started private voice lessons with her when I was around 10. She really helped me understand popper singing technique and guided me in building my audition book. She pushed me to sing notes I never thought I could sing and perform songs I never thought I could perform. She helped me with my college audition materials and counseled me through my college audition process. I don't know where I would be without her fine expertise."

"The Fine Tuned Performing Arts Camp that was run by Lyndsey was absolutely terrific. Our daughter flourished under her guidance. The program is well designed, original and engaging. Lyndsey allows full and equal participation by all the students, which added greatly to their enthusiasm. We enjoyed the experience as parents. Our daughter enjoyed it as a performer. I highly recommend this camp. It will be a wonderful experience. We look forward to it next year."

"I was a voice student of Mrs. Schaefer for about 6 years, and I have only positive things to say about my experience. Our voice lessons felt very personalized and this definitely helped them to be more effective overall. For example, she always remembered which vowels worked best for my voice in certain parts of my range, and made suggestions accordingly for how to improve the way I sang certain phrases. Mrs. Schaefer was also very helpful with audition coaching. She provided insight on songs she thought would showcase my strengths. Even though I am a sophomore in college and I no longer take lessons from her, I still consult her for suggestions when it comes to audition songs. I would recommend her, without hesitation, to anyone looking to be coached for an audition or just looking to improve their voice and vocal technique."
