My process is totally INDIVIDUALIZED so there is no such thing as typical. Obviously the process does involve getting to know the student and attaining a sense of how they communicate, what their experience level is, what their goals are.
I was trained for over 5 years at a Master Class Level at the Michael Howard Studios in New York City.
Additionally, I studied at New York University, The American Academy of Dramatic Arts in NY as well as Woolly Mammoth Theater School and RoundHouse Theater School in Washington DC.
I have a sliding scale that is adjustable to each individual student/situation. I charge an hourly rate but am agreeable to a flat fee for weekly/regular lessons.
I started teaching as a Director/Instructor for a youth theater program in N. Virginia.
I have worked with a wide range of students, from children with little experience as young as Age 6 to professional adult actors. I have also instructed and directed teens and young adults with special needs.
My most recent production as an actor, Rapture, Blister, Burn was an incredibly powerful and emotionally challenging experience.
