With a wide variety of techniques, I try to help the actor develop themselves as an artist. Meisner, Stanislavski, Chekhov, Strasberg and other techniques will be studied and applied to help the actor find the right techniques that work for them.
I create safe supportive environments, with the accent on individuality and personal attention. My lessons are designed around the individual’s needs, desires, goals and personality so no two lessons are the same. Sessions are designed specifically to allow you to grow at your own pace; I am here to help you along on that wonderful and exciting journey towards being a master of your craft.
Whether it is improv, film, on camera, commercial or musical theater work I feel it is my job to provide you with the tools for developing your skills and get you well on your way to acquiring the knowledge you need to tap into your special talents and improve your self-confidence and stage presence.

Great. Very personable and easy to relax with. Great exercises and homework I feel is doable as my first ever vocal lesson. Can't wait for my next session :)

My 5 year old daughter has become a stronger dancer with Ms. Kelly as she builds up for her recital. We are truly lucky to find such a dedicated and talented teacher.
Tracey
I was very lucky to have found Kelly. I had always dreamed of having artistic talent but I am not a naturally good singer. Within two years, I have gone from singing in the shower to having developed to stage performance. Kelly has taught me so much from the artistic expression of singing to the mechanics of turning my voice into an instrument. She has an incredible ability to listen to my voice and pinpoint the exact adjustment I need to make it sound great. She's such a fun person to be around that I always look forward to my next lesson. Her positive attitude and approach is also a testament to her high level of professionalism. She provides feedback that is positive. but also helps me improve She is the perfect combination of teacher and coach and I would highly recommend her for anyone interested in singing.

I have been teaching and coaching actors for over 20 years. My students work professionally on stage, TV and film. Within the first few lessons, you will understand how to create a character. Soon, you will have the skills to book a role. I specialize in method acting, but draw upon my experience at The Second City (improvisation) in Chicago and other training I have had. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels; I can't wait to meet you!

Molly is so amazing! She's such a positive, friendly, and encouraging teacher. She really aims to try and make it as fun and with as much ease for the student as possible. She's very hands on, and teaches by example and exercises, and makes it very easy for beginner students to jump right in. Of course she could easily help advanced students with all her expertise, but she is so easy to sing in front of, even when it's a very personal and new thing! Highly recommended. A fun, positive teacher, wonderful person!

I was a Theater Arts major at Trinity University where I took part in several productions, including Cabaret, Trojan Women, Chemin de Fer and Die Fledermaus. AT San Antonio Little Theater I performed in No, No, Nanette and Philemon. As a student at UTSA, I performed in Trial by Jury, Boris Godunov, Iolanthe and the Madrigal Christmas Dinners. I was hired by UTSA as a paid performer in the Madrigal Christmas dinners from 1984 to 1989. From 1989 to 1995 I taught Music and Drama at Converse Elementary. In the 1990's I performed in The Magic Flute and Don Giovanni as part of the San Antonio Festival. I have done freelance work over the years as a performer for special events. As an elementary music teacher and secondary choir teacher, I have produced and directed numerous programs and musicals. I have taught acting and public speaking to a number of students.
