Private instructor specializing in singing, acting, and oratory. Conservatory trained theatre maker, with over ten years experience teaching students of all ages and backgrounds in both private and group environments.
I am a Great Lakes-Midwestern native now living and working in Portland. I have been singing, performing, and making original theatre since the age of three. My earliest musical outlets consisted of the school choir, popular radio, and weekly Sunday services with family.
*** Lesson Details ***
My lessons provide a safe space for students to experiment with uninhibited presentation and performance through repeated trial, error, and experimentation. I have worked with singer-songwriters, musical theatre performers, storytellers and public speakers, as well as individuals in need of vocal rehabilitation. I teach children, adults, amateurs, professionals, the fearless, and those overcome with stage fright.
Private voice lessons examine how the whole body affects and influences sound within an individual. I do not teach music as a matter of technical prowess. If you can speak, you can sing. My job is to identify the unique habits of each vocalist, so that the student becomes aware of how his or her voice is resonating with an audience. Lessons cover anatomy and movement, breath, pitch, tonality, rhythm, diction and sound, delivery style, command of the stage, and proper vocal care.
Lessons will examine the body as an instrument of performance and sound, and are not designed for students seeking lessons in sight-reading or classic methodology. My lessons are also not a good fit for individuals with ambition to perform on American Idol or other likeminded television competition programs. Please contact me with additional inquiries.

I have a Master's in Acting and Directing and support fields in Music. I coach singing and acting for a wide range of ages and types of acting from stage to film and all types in between including Shakespeare . I normally take students at my house which is in the 97217 area code or at PSU campus. I would love to talk with you further about your personal goals in regards with what you would like to study.
*** Lesson Details ***
I want my students to enjoy the arts but the music and acting is hard work. My students will be well rounded in their subjects and have the opportunity to cross over if they would like.
I pay attention to my students needs and wants. I would like students to be open minded about the work that they are being taught but I also want to take their interests to heart. If a student brings me music or a monologue that they would like to work on, I will review it and try to incorporate it within our studies.
