personal MAP SESSIONS with Eleri Ward

in an industry that doesn't give you a map, let's make your own- together.


Navigating the worlds of music and theater can be daunting when there’s no straight path to success, especially when success itself looks different for everyone. From being an open book answering your burning questions to giving guidance on where you are and want to be in your career, I’m here to work with you on creating your own inner compass to point you towards achieving your individual goals as a creative in the world.


When I moved to New York City in 2017, I had no guidance, no agent, no clue how anything worked, and I learned everything by doing and creating opportunities for myself. I would like to take that knowledge and experience and share everything they didn’t teach me in school so as to give you the confidence and resources to succeed in the ways you aspire to.


If there’s no one way to go about a life in the arts, let’s figure out what YOUR way looks like and take steps towards total creative empowerment.
