What is your typical process for working with a new student?

First I like to know what experience the student has, so that I can meet them where they're at. Additionally, I want to know if they have anything coming up that they are preparing for. 

Students should bring in materials that they'd like to focus on. I work not only on the acting, but on the voice. Students can bring audition materials (sides, which is part of the script, if they have them, songs, etc.) I will help the actor strip down the character, and build the actor's confidence as they approach their ongoing opportunities.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have a BA in Theatre Arts from Arizona State University. I have taught several years of summer acting camps for youth and teens, and I have taught monologue classes for teens and adults. Please see my biography for my acting credtis.

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

I am adaptable to the student’s needs. Usually, I like to meet for 55 minutes for single sessions. (Linger for groups)

How did you get started teaching?

I got started teaching when a director that I had been working with asked me to come and teach at his academy. I worked with them for six years until they no longer offered classes. By that time I was already teaching for two other companies.

What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with students beginning age 8, through adulthood. Most of my students have at least some experience.

If you are a beginner, the best thing you can do is simply get into any show you can. Get used to being on the stage, and in front of an audience! (Make your own shows, if you have to! Invite the neighbors, family, parent's dinner guests, etc.)

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

You should look for a teacher with whom you feel comfortable. They should be fun, and allow you to enjoy the process. Build a relationship with your teacher by inviting them to your shows, and let them provide you with feedback. Acting and Art do not end; they should be something you continue to work on for as long as you love doing it.

Parents of teens and youth, your child may be the best there ever was (or maybe one day they might be,) so thank you for supporting them! Continue to support them, even when you may not be impressed. Something about being on stage can truly keep one's spirit alive. Let them experience that!

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

What am I looking to accomplish? (audition better, snag that lead role? Get better so that Mel/Melissa doesn't keep getting all the good parts?)
