Using short scenes and monologues, I help students work on character development and with speaking their lines. I also help them to think about intention.

It took me a while to realize how much music and singing means to me.

I fell in love with singing art songs, jazz and opera arias. And while studying at the University of Maryland, I had the opportunity to work as a voice teacher/ section leader with the women's section of a choir, numerous opportunities to work as a soloist and in a few jazz clubs. I was also involved in dance performances and acted as a dance tutor.
I believe everyone has the ability to sing … some better than others, of course, -- but regardless, I believe every voice can make a beautiful sound. I believe learning to sing requires team work: with the proper instruction and learning tools from me, the instructor, and with the dedication (practice, practice, practice) from you, the student, a well-rounded singer can emerge.
I began singing when I was five years old in church. I continued singing exclusively inspirational music until I was a teenager. At that time, in addition to the second soprano part I sang in a five-part harmony
a Capella (without instrumental accompaniment) Gospel group, I also sang in a couple of bands (Rhythm and Blues, and Jazz). My undergraduate studies were completed at the American ...
I have been teaching acting since 1999. Under my tutelage, I will instruct a powerful and effective method, The Meisner Method of Natural Acting. Through personal exploration, the student learns to bring their own unique qualities to the performance, rendering it that much more eloquent. Bringing who the student is to the scene in question is done through hands-on activities.

I have been teaching acting for twelve years. My goal is for you to create honest work. I will gear you to the choices that are right for the piece. I am very honest in my approach but I work in a positive manner. I will always tell you what is working and what still needs to be worked upon. As a teacher, I may ask you to reflect on your own life experiences, imagine scenarios, or improvise. I use the Stanislavsky method of acting which asks 'What does your character want?'
