Joan Lader


Tony Honors for Excellence in the Theatre


For more than 30 years, Joan Lader has provided vocal training and rehabilitation for those who use their voices professionally. Joan’s extensive practice includes leading performers from the worlds of Opera, Film, R&B, Rap, Rock and Pop, but more than any of these, the world of Broadway. Her clients have won countless Tonys, Oscars, Grammys, Emmys, and more, and while she has trained people whose names are above the title, she has trained innumerable performers in the chorus of just about every Broadway show in the last thirty years as well. Joan Lader is a frequent guest lecturer at Columbia University, the Voice Foundation in Philadelphia, the Pacific Voice Foundation in San Francisco, NYSTA, Berklee College of Music and the Commercial Voice Conference at Vanderbilt University. She is currently a consultant for the New Studio at New York University and is proud to be involved with the National Young Arts Foundation, whose participants so often become the stars of tomorrow.
