I have been a professional performance coach for the last 15 years. I have trained students ages 3-16 to find their true vocal, acting and musical potential. I provide a very personalized lesson plan for each student, with appropriate warm ups, expert repertoire selection from both current and classic Broadway Shows, and handpicked audition cuts. I trained as an educator of theater with Kids On Stage in Los Angeles after receiving my BA in Musical Theater. With the Atlanta School of the Performing Arts, I mentored children ages 3-16 in their performances at Walt Disney World, Carnegie Hall in New York, and the Bahamas on Royal Caribbean. My students have landed lead roles in musicals like Annie and Shrek. My husband and I run the performance company, K&A Theatricals, which is committed to producing cabarets, musicals, and cutting edge dramas. We share the stage with our students and give them the chance to shine with us and learn from us how to be professional performers.
My students have gone on to Broadway and enjoyed careers on TV. One of my students just starred as Matilda in the National Tour
I love finding the perfect audition material for my young stars and seeing them shine.
Amanda is always professional and great at audition and performance prep!
I take the introductory lesson to get to know the student and their goals and needs as singers. Then I pick out the perfect songs and monologues to help them on their artistic journey
I have a degree in Musical Theater.
My lessons are $60 an hour if the student comes to my home studio, $50 an hour for Skype lessons, and $75 an hour if I drive to the student. If you sign up for 5 lessons, I will give you $20 towards the next lesson.
I believe that a performer should pass on their passion and knowledge to the next generation.
Ages 6 to 16, all levels from beginner to advanced.
My private voice student who trained with me in person and through Skype landed the lead role in the National Tour of Matilda. Seeing her take center stage with poise and professionalism at age 9 was a very proud moment.
Do your homework. Find the best teacher out there and take every advantage of their knowledge and training.
What are my goals? What type of music/musicals do I like? What roles do I want to pursue?
