Private Improv Acting Teacher

As a voice teacher & performance coach, I work holistically to help you explore the accurate communication of emotions that comprise a sincere ability to relate a story to an audience. We explore character development along with delving into how the voice integrates physical responses to external stimuli. Working with acting skills can help us understand our relationship to others and our world in a different light. It's an excellent way to continue professional development in any field, as the ability to role-play helps you work with communication skills in a risk-free environment.

Improv acting helps you:

* Think on your feet
* Gain perspective on human behavior
* Deepen character development [current show or production]
* Roll with the changes in plot as dialogue changes
* Practice clear communication (perspicuity)
* Work with gestural communication & physical attributes

Private Improv Acting Teacher

I'm a teacher, director and all-around guide for actors who want to go out and audition for roles. I provide guidance to seasoned actors by helping them fine-tune both their audition technique and the monologues they choose perform. I lend that critical "outside eye" to help them become aware of what they're actually doing in their piece(s) (details of which they may be unaware); to guide them towards their strengths as an actor (which could be very different than how they think they should be approaching/performing a piece); and to aid them in shaping the monologue into a complete, engaging, performance piece.

For beginners, I introduce them to the basics of good audition/acting technique; help guide them towards monologues that are not only appropriate, but strong choices for them individually; and as with my veteran students, help them shape their pieces into strong, entertaining, 1-2 minute works of theater that underscore the strengths they bring to the table as an actor.

I ...

Online Improv Acting Teacher

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. This job involved a lot of improvisation. 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 an improvisational 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.
