We will start by going over your experience and your goals for the lessons. Then together we will create tangible path with milestone markers to lead us there. These milestones will include: Analyzing the text, analyzing the character, working on the dialect and voice of the character, then moving to the physicality of the character, followed with tying all elements together, and most importantly reviewing everyday what we went through.
