About this pro

As a performer and teacher I am able to connect to and build on a person's strengths, while simultaneously using areas of their perceived weaknesses to empower their learning process!

I absolutely thrive on teaching others to embrace their "Inner Performer" !

I don't just live to 'teach', I ' TEACH' to live!

    I have had the honorable privledge to observe Charmaine Charles' great talent and work for over 40+ years. She was one of the lead singers at our six grade graduation at Purche Elementary School. In 10th grade, she coordinated the Hal Jackson Talented Teen Contest which I was a participant; which included our walk, posture, voice projection and a dance routine to name a few. In High School, she won the Dramatic Interpretation category in the National Forensic League where I was one of the contestants. As a USC graduate, Charmaine's recitals, musical plays, musical productions, poetry, dramatic skits, and acting on numerous TV shows are countless, memorable, entertaining and enlightening. I was glad to have learned, witness and observed. This power-pack highly skilled woman has postively impacted me today. It is important sometimes to go so far back in history, only to demonstrate Charmaine's longevity of pure God given talent that is nothing less than extraordinar!!

    I have had the wonderful opportunity to perform with Charmaine on a number of occasions. She is very professional and a gifted artist. Not only is she a great actress but she is an excellent singer, teacher and coach. Charmaine has given me vocal lessons and I cannot tell you how my pitch and vocals have improved. I am very grateful to her for her professionalism, and excellent teaching skills. She is a wonderful and skilled teacher that successfully brings out the hidden talent in each of her students.

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

The World Famous Apollo Theatre is where Actor, Singer and Educator Charmaine Charles made her professional debut. She has enjoyed national commercials and co-starring roles on all the major network channels but "The Stage" is her sanctuary!  Speaking of sanctuary she is a proud member of "The Music and Arts Department"  of Faithful Central Bible Church, FCBC Repertory actor and featured soloist with “One Voice” choir –all under impeccable leadership of her well-loved and highly esteemed pastor, Bishop Kenneth C. Ulmer.

 Charmaine's passions are performing and teaching with the ultimate goal of establishing her own Academic and Arts Academy. She is grateful for her loving family and true friends. She dedicates each "heartfelt" performance in the priceless memory of her one true heart, her father Mr. Philip Charles. She established a performance based non-profit, “Heaven’s Hearts via the Arts”, in his honor to enhance awareness, treatment and support for Cardiomyopathy. The 2015 launch for HHVA can be viewed on
