I am a poet and I began working with Wi-Moto as a means to empower my stage presence. Working with Wi-Moto was pure joy. She has an ease about her that just makes you comfortable with yourself when in her presence. She is very attentive and passionate about the work that she does, I truly felt like she was routing for me in each of our sessions and constantly challenging me to go deeper emotionally. I learned so much about myself and the skill of acting while working with her.
Overall, Wi-Moto was very professional, She was always ready to work when I arrived and her studio space is very open with lots of sunlight and good vibes.
Wi-Moto is an incredible teacher
Wi-Moto creates a stress free environment where productivity is always guaranteed. After working with her for only 8 weeks my vocal range was expanded dramatically. She helped me snag the lead in my schools musical and worked with me on my college audition monologues until they were perfected. If your looking for a acting or vocal coach look no further.
