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.

Acting students will receive instruction customized for their individual needs and skill level, drawing on a variety of techniques, including Linklater (physical and vocal work), Stanislavski, Meisner, and Grotowski, Shurtleff, among others.

Each lesson is tailor-made to fit the experience level of the student. I have students nationwide, and utilize video chat as a great way to teach anywhere!

Students will learn how to act by utilizing the techniques of Stanislavski. Each lesson will consist of a 10 minute warm-up built into the lesson. Students will explore monologues as well as scenes from a variety of time periods across stage and screen. Additionally, hand-picked material will be assigned to practice in between lessons. The practice is everything!

My daughter loved Melanie!
Sarah
Melanie is an absolutely incredible vocal teacher/coach. I noticed a change in my voice after just the first lesson. Her vast knowledge of the anatomy used to create vocal sounds combined with the techniques she teaches has definitely improved my voice. She taught me how to belt and showed me the difference between my belt and my mix, which was beyond helpful. She also taught me how to sing in my head voice in a healthier and more effective way. And on top of that, she has a mental library full of great song recommendations for my individual voice. Can't wait until our next lesson!

"This was my first lesson and I have to admit, I was really nervous and I didn't know what to expect. However, it turned out I had nothing to be nervous about! Carissa is so nice and once the lesson started, I felt comfortable talking to her and doing the scene readings with her. I had a lot of fun during my first lesson and I can't wait until the next one :)"
