About this pro

I offer personal training and classes to those who seek to explore their artistic talents! (Adults, kids, & teenagers)

We explore your strengths/weaknesses and plan out our goals. I want to cater to YOUR needs and help you hone in on your instincts as an artist while perfecting proper techniques and maintaining healthy habits. The end goal is to be confident in the power of your talent and to utilize it to it’s fullest potential.

When it comes to music, we find your voice (so to speak). Proper warmups, stage performance, breathing techniques, range development, vocal control, healthy habits, and finding the soul of the piece are some of the essentials that we will cover.

Everyone's voice is unique. I help you develop technique and healthy singing habits in order to pursue your dreams in music, whatever they may be! 

The same goes for acting! Every character is unique and has a story to tell. We explore different methods of character development in order to properly tell the story. You will explore improvisation, cold reading, audition etiquette, scene study, film/television/theater acting, and the different acting methods that suit your fancy [Method (Meisner, Strasberg), Classical (Stanislavsky, Chekhov), Walsh vocal acting, Voice Over].
