*** Lesson Details ***
I want my students to enjoy the arts but the music and acting is hard work. My students will be well rounded in their subjects and have the opportunity to cross over if they would like.
I pay attention to my students needs and wants. I would like students to be open minded about the work that they are being taught but I also want to take their interests to heart. If a student brings me music or a monologue that they would like to work on, I will review it and try to incorporate it within our studies.

Kristin does an amazing job of meeting me where my abilities and needs are. She listens to what I want out of the lessons, but also challenges me to stretch beyond what I think I can do... and I'm often delightfully surprised. She also teaches me a great deal of music theory as we work through singing which is wonderful. Her guidance in helping me use my "instrument" properly has been so valuable. And she is very patient and intuitive in the process.

Charity M.

Beaverton, OR

Monologue prep, research, act development

About Charity

The body is an incredible instrument that we use to speak, to rock out, walk, boogie, express, signify and croon. The body can captivate audiences or communicate to a friend. A person can personally and professionally take flight, gaining confidence through becoming familiar with themselves, their bodies and their artistry.

Charity Marchandt ran away with both opera and the circus.Their vocal skill continues to take them on the jazz, theater and classical stages like Portland Opera and Opera Theater Oregon.

Combining both disciplines of music and cirque is one of their favorite thing
s.They are a previous resident artist and troupe liaison of Sky Circus, a continuing guest member with Wanderlust Circus, Voice instructor at Youth Music Project and instructor at Echo Theater

I have found her teaching style and versatility from a student’s perspective very strong. She is able to adapt to each of her students learning styles. Not only this but she also develops the students self confidence and a belief in their abilities. Thus she has always created students that excel. I have experienced none of her students quitting, but all of us excelled. They all out perform and continue on to great success in their fields of study. I feel very blessed to have her as a teacher and as a mentor. It has lead to my success. Thank You!

Vocal Training · In studio
I had the pleasure of working with Charity when my daughter was taking voice lessons with her. She is a phenomenal teacher, wonderful with kids and offers just the right amount of encouragement and support, as well as the ability to help even the most reluctant student perform. The skills that Charity taught my daughter have translated well into middle school, giving her the confidence to be on stage in front of her peers, which is no small accomplishment. It's been beautiful to watch my child blossom after working with Charity, and I would highly recommend her to anyone considering voice lessons.

My daughter loves Charity! Charity has been providing her with singing and dance lessons for over a year. My daughter is so much more confident, and her posture and flexibility are much better. She can now even do the splits. Best of all, my daughter will never feel embarrassed about singing in public. I recommend Charity whole-heartedly.

We will assess your starting point and then build a lesson plan to establish certain acting techniques and tools that you can turn to when I'm not around. Acting is all about being present in the moment, so we want you to be comfortable enough with your process that you don't overthink and simply be there. We'll work on auditioning, rehearsing, and character building. Through my work in film and theatre, I have insight into acting for both mediums. So our focus will be up to you.
