Taylor Bridges completed studies at the University of Alabama in both the Bachelor of Music and the Bachelor of Arts programs. While living in Alabama he taught arts camps all over the state, taught for the Gadsden City School System, and was a lead teacher for the University of Alabama SummerTide program in Gulf Shores, Alabama. He was also a much sought-after vocalist as well as a NATS 2006 award-winning singer (Musical Theatre and Classical Divisions).
In New York he has been seen on stages as a Music Director at the New York Fringe Festival, a composer/pianist at The New York Musical Theatre Festival, a singer-songwriter, and a pit musician. He spent two years at the BMI Musical Theatre Writers’ Workshop which the New York Times called the “Harvard of musical theatre”. He was a guest artist at the Eugene O’Neill Theatre Conference as well as a founding member of While We Wait Productions which started a children’s theatre camp in Huntsville, Alabama.
Hailing from Sweet Home Alabama, he currently resides in Brooklyn and can be found greeting everyone with the ubiquitous saying from his alma mater, “Roll Tide.”
“Taylor was able to take a very stressful and overwhelming experience and make it manageable! In a short time he was able to figure out the ins and outs of Mitchell’s strengths and weaknesses, allowing Taylor to guide him successfully. His bright and witty personality matched well with Mitchell, making the sessions lighter and actually enjoyable! We can’t thank Taylor enough! One thing is for sure, Mitchell will never forget how to use a comma!”

I think A-List is a great organization. My tutor was positive and tailored the material to my learning style. She made learning each subject fun and presented new topics in an engaging fashion. Thank you so much to A-List for helping me achieve my personal best!
A-List gave me more than just practice tests and test-taking tips, though these were invaluable. My tutor connected with me on a personal level and helped me understand that I was capable of getting the score I wanted. Suddenly, I viewed my test-taking experience as a challenge, not a burden. I walked into my ACT with the confidence that I knew exactly how to conquer every aspect of the test.”

Both my children had an amazing experience with A-List! Steadily, she worked hard to improve her test scores. Taking the practice tests allowed her to gain confidence and learn to manage her time during the tests. Then a college advisor helped her write her college essays. She was an amazing guide who helped Phoebe focus and streamline her supplements and essays. Now she will be attending her dream college, Rice University, School of Architecture!
