Interview Preparation and Coaching


With ample experience and a track record of significant success, Dr. Nick Klein believes that the key to successful interviewing for academic music positions is not your musical skills, rather the amount of preparation and practice you've put in for each interview. 

Dr. Klein has been praised for the quality of his submitted materials, his meticulous attention to detail, and his extremely evident research and preparation for every school with which he has interviewed. Because of his notable success in the field of academic interviews, Dr. Klein has become an expert in helping hopeful music academics prepare applications and for interviews in a way that will ensure more successful outcomes than previously experienced. 

Whether you need help preparing application materials (Cover Letter, CV, DEI Statements, etc.) or preparing for initial zoom interviews, Dr. Klein is here to help! 


Dr. Klein offers comprehensive review of application documents - thoroughly reviewing and offering suggested edits to enhance the quality of submitted application materials, assistance in the process of submitting university applications, as well as interview coaching - consisting of research, preparatory questions, and ample feedback and opportunities to practice implementing feedback to ensure greater success in actual interview settings. 

Regardless of whether you are preparing your first application for an academic position in music or your 20th, Dr. Klein has knowledge and experience to share that will undoubtedly elevate your application and interview skills in a way that can't be denied.
