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 University, ...
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?'

I have a BA in Theatre Arts from Virginia Tech. Though at the time I focused on performance, the program allowed us to learn extensively about design, business, and directing.
