    Charles saw things in me that I didn't see for myself. When I first started working with him as an acting coach he was teaching me how to audition for musical theater. At the time I knew I could sing, but I didn't think I had what it took to sing at a professional level in musical theater. Charles was patient in teaching me. Over just a few sessions he helped me to unlock a big voice inside of me that I didn't realize I had, but that he was confident was there. That changed everything for me. No other teacher had been able to help me see that in myself. Since then he has been incredible at taking his many years of professional experience in the NYC Theater market, and transferring those skills into helping me learn how to be a serious, grounded actress. With Charles help I've found a method and approach to character that works for me. He has coached me for numerous Broadway, Film, and Television auditions. It is because of his training that I have been able to book incredible jobs. He is literally the best. I would highly, highly recommend him to anyone.

    Charles has always inspired me with his fearlessness, his bold choices, and his steadfast commitment to excellence. He always encourages me to search for nuance and infuses my work with a symphony of colors. I am grateful for any time spent with him and highly recommend working with him in any capacity!

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

$100/hour. I work very hard with my students, and have more actual industry experience than any private coach in the Carolinas. This rate is commensurate to my experience and expertise.
