I have a Master's in Acting and Directing and support fields in Music. I coach singing, acting, speech, and piano for a wide range of ages. I teach many styles of acting from stage to film and in between including Shakespeare I have studied a variety of methods on acting and will cater to the interests of my students. I have a degree in Speech and Communications as well as Performing arts and would love to help you with your public speaking or every day speech needs. I coach from two locations. A studio in SE Portland and from a studio in my home. I would love to talk with you further about your personal goals in regards with what you would like to study.
*** 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.
