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.
Jeeyun
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.

Maybe you're just starting out as an actor and what some extra coaching. Maybe you've never acted before but want to give it a try. Or maybe you aren't interested in being on stage but want some advice on becoming an effective public speaker. I'm available for monologue advice, audition preparation and coaching, scene work, as well as general acting lessons or help with presentation and public speaking skills.

I believe in using what's unique about you as a person in your performance, so we'll spend time working together on how to bring out the "you" in your acting!

I believe in guiding rather than dictating, so I will always act as the guide to your discoveries rather than dictating what your performance "should" be. My background is primarily in Meisner acting work, so I will work with you to "act truthfully under imaginary circumstances". I also provide speech, voice, and movement work to supplement the acting work we're doing if you'd like.

About Kevan

Hi! I'm an actor, director, and playwright who loves sharing my passion for theatre with people of all ages. I am primarily an acting teacher specializing in the Meisner technique. I am a graduate of the University of Central Oklahoma with a BFA in Acting and Texas Tech University with an MFA in Th

I've been teaching acting for several years and my students have gone on to pursue film, perform in community and school productions, gotten into college programs, and pursue careers in acting. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to perform a monologue and as time goes on you'll have a full repertoire of monologues and skills ready to go! I love working with students of all ages and experience levels, and I can't wait to meet you!

Want to hit the stage and be in the spotlight, but don't know where to begin? Feel like you know your casting "type", but want to expand your possibilities? Is performing Shakespeare your worst nightmare? No problem! Within no time at all, I'll make sure that you'd feel confident to rock an audition, know what to expect for a rehearsal process, and how to hone your craft so you'll be prepared for anything a director throws your way. I've studied firsthand with Shakespearean actors who've performed at the Globe Theatre, Musical Theatre performers from both Broadway and the West End, and some of the best improv performers America has to offer. We can figure out which acting approach works best for you, and how you can effectively expand your repertoire. Let's get to work!
