Private Improv Acting Teacher

I have been teaching professionally for over 10 years. My classes are customized and catered to the needs and goals of each student. With over 10 years of experience, I’ve worked with producers, directors, casting directors, and writers. I know what they’re looking for. Specializing in memorization, audition techniques, script breakdown, character development and visualization techniques, I use known methods to help the actor create their own technique. Classes are fun and dynamic. We’ll explore behavior, speech and movement and how it all relates to the human psyche. Let’s play!

I am a voice and acting teacher specializing in musical theater and pop rock and other commercial forms of singing. I have training in all different acting techniques and I focus on audition and competition prep. I help performers fuse their acting and singing but can also focus on one aspect if the student so chooses. I work with many students on college auditions and thespian competitions as well. I teach all ages up to adults since I am also an adjunct faculty and have experience in teaching at the university level.

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!

Carolyn German has been absolutely wonderful to work with. She's a great combination of friendly, yet professional, and brings many years of varied experience to her craft into the teaching experience. She's very easy to work with, I never felt self-conscious about any of what I consider to be my flaws, and she has truly helped me to develop more well-rounded characters, as well as some very much needed self-confidence.

"LK was great. She took me through several exercises, then gave me homework to do for my next class. She made me feel very comfortable. The reason I was wanting to take classes in the first place is because I am always being told that people cannot hear me when I talk. Also I have always wanted to take acting classes. Please let me know if you think this is the best class to take if I try to pursue Theater Acting, or Film Acting in the future.
Thank You, Laura Boys RPH"
