Overview

Acting – I have taught all kinds of acting, including Audition Skills, Shakespeare, Stage, Film & TV, Dramatic, Comedic, whatever. I also have quite a bit of experience performing in all those arenas. I have a relationship with one of the best management agencies in the area, so my students get fast-tracked with her.

Voice – Anyone can sing. If you want to and have always thought you couldn't, you will be delighted when I prove you wrong. Training for the voice is pretty much the same, whatever style you are interested in. Then I'll coach you in your chosen style and we'll pick songs you like.

Singing beautifully is not enough. I can't tell you how many times I heard in grad school "beautiful voices are a dime a dozen." I will teach you how to OWN the song. That's what keeps people coming back.

Speaking – Every public speaker I know has lost their voice at some point, but not from talking too much. It's because they don't know how to use their voice properly. Learn that, and you need never lose your voice to over-use. That's easy to teach.

Writing – I have been a professional writer and editor for over eight years, with many books, articles, posts, newsletters, etc. to my name. I use – and teach – practical grammar, not just correct grammar. I can also help you make your words more powerful.

She's a great teacher my daughter was shy at first and once she started understanding everything she felt confident and loved the class.

Enjoyed my lesson with Susan. She is very patient with me, and encourages me to continue when she observes my frustration.

I loved how she taught me so much in just one session. She gave me more confidence but she was still a reality check for me.

My child absolutely loves taking acting lessons with Susan. She has been incredibly helpful in furthering his acting techniques, skills and talents for school theater roles and potentially a future career in this field. Since lesson 1, he was hooked! We could not be happier with our experience with Susan!
