Lesson Details

Method Acting

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate
Have you ever tried to merge with a character in a play or movie? Isn't it exciting? Well with all the training that I had including the Great Stanislawski and Laban techniques I can easily introduce you to the most famous and common acting methods. The "method" of course is a special technique used by known actors like Dustin Hoffman or Jeremy Irons. Have you ever wondered how their characters can be so real and believable? Well, I'll show you!

Teaches students:
Ages 9+

Teaching since:
September 1998

Originally born in Germany, Chrissy developed a passion for music, language and teaching early on. Right out of High School she helped her mother, who was an educator at that time, write and stage-manage a children's Musical which found great response from the audience. During her Music studies in the Netherlands she was offered an internship at the local Music School which she gratefully accepted and where she enjoyed her first voice coaching experience. There she was also nominated as one of the most promising young singer/songwriters at the LUX Festival in Nijmegen. Over the years she was blessed with more and more private students in voice as well as piano. During her stay in New York she received the opportunity to work with a Broadway show ensemble ("Dreamgirls") as a Music Director on their different harmonic parts. She's proudly been a member of the Music of Oz Studio staff in Crown Point, Indiana since Jan. 2011 and is looking forward to teaching out of her home now as well. Chrissy is crazy about all her students and wants them to succeed! She's very much looking forward to working with you and having buckets of fun! :-)

Our time and resources were valued by Chrissy. She was punctual and very quickly assessed our son's strengths and challenges. Her rapport and ability to help our son delve into his own understanding to find the correct answer, rather than providing the correct responses herself, was refreshing; A natural teacher. We are looking forward to the next session.

I think Chrissy is the most pleasant and cheerful teacher I've ever known. She is extremely knowledgeable and well versed in the technical aspects of singing (of which I never knew there were so many). I intend to continue my lessons and would recommend her to anyone.
