Specific & clear in her instructions, open to feedback, patient and encouraging, courteous and respectful - not to mention a great singer. Looking forward to future lessons with Deborah.

I was pretty nervous about taking a singing lesson, as it's something I've never done in my life. I'm so thankful I got connected to Deborah. She's a fantastic teacher and taught me so much about how our body works to produce sounds when singing and what I am doing. From the first lesson I was already given helpful tips and ways to practice things on my own! I'm looking forward to more lessons with Deborah.

Specializing in the beginner, intermediate and advanced level training. I love acting, performing, directing and teaching and have been involved with the acting world since age 6! Studied theater in high school and at NTSU, have a B.A. Speech/Communications and Spolin Improv technique with Nancy Fine of Second City.
I believe basic acting skills help you in every day life to be more poised, confident and help hone listening skills. It is a true delight for me to see the "light-bulb" go off when a student fully grasps a new concept or idea.
I customize sessions based on the individual.

Evelyn is a wonderful instructor! She is insightful with many years experience under her belt and she is passionate about acting. It’s great to have her support as I go into acting for opera at the collegiate level. I enjoy working with her and I highly recommend her!
Dale
Evelyn is one of the BEST directors I have worked for as an actor. Her level of care for actors was amazing! Throughout the process she helped guide and encourage the actors to bring out the best in themselves. She has a gift for acting and as a director she can relate to actors and understand what they are going through in a production. Thank you for Evelyn for everything!!

I provide a very custom approach to the individual. I first learn about them as an actor. Have they any training? Do they need help with projecting? Do they need help with speaking lower? Do they need help interpreting scripts? I will use my mini interview on our first lesson to decide what we need to work on and then provide them with the appropriate monologue or scene to prepare for our next lesson. I will then help them truly find themselves in the character using different acting methods I’ve learned. I will give them constructive feedback on their performance and have them practice it at home before their next lesson. Aside from the structure of my lessons, I’m really bubbly and friendly and I think I will make actors feel they are in a safe space to truly express themselves!

Having spent a lifetime on the stage in many roles, many capacities, I have accumulated a vast amount of knowledge pertaining to all facets of performing; be it theater, television, film. While not subscribing to one particular "method", I stress "reacting, not acting", and believability of performance. All ages and experience levels have benefited from my approach. Whether a student is an aspiring actor, or a working actor sharpening their skills or prepping for an audition, I provide a solid foundation and practical, applicable knowledge and guidance.

About Glenn

I have been active in the entertainment industry since the age of 12, when I gave my first professional performance. Prior to that I was already being introduced to music with years of guitar, and then vocal instruction. I do not remember a time of my life when I was not singing somewhere; in the h

Glenn is amazing! He listened to me sing a few songs and gave me two tips that completely improved my vocal performance! Highly, highly recommended if you want to sing and perform better, and if you truly want to profoundly impact the listener to a higher degree !

"Nick is an excellent teacher. He has already improved my creativity and communication skills so much in the few sessions I've had with him. I've been able to step outside of my comfort zone and am a better actor for it. Thank you Nick for such encouraging words and your kind spirit. I can't wait to work together again very soon."

"The first lesson of the ten-pack I bought (to start) went very well. Michael was knowledgeable and provided just the kind of feedback I wanted for my solo vocal performances (I was looking for instruction on *acting* in solo vocal performance), giving me immediately useful tips for improving my next performance. It's clear that Michael has a lot to offer me. I look forward to more in the coming lessons."

3 Drama Games for Learning Method Acting

Method acting requires you to fully embrace your transformation into your character. To create an authentic experience for your audience, you need to lose the speech inflections, facial expressions, and physical mannerisms that wouldn't make sense. For example, when an actor plays a depressed man, his cynical speech won't be convincing if he delivers it with perfect, confident posture. When Hollywood stars stay in character between takes, or improv comedians wear disguises to interact with un …
