    I am and will be forever grateful to Melissa. Melissa has a vast amount of knowledge. Her experience coupled with unique teaching style is a wonderful mixture for success!


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I schedule a meeting so I can get to know what someone's individual needs are. I talk through my different classes and workshops to see where they would best be served. I also take them on a tour of the studios and go over how I teach and what techniques they will be learning. From there we come up with a plan to move their acting to the next level. 

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