Musical Theatre TEACHING

"As a professional actor, singer, and dancer, I teach in all three areas. This has been an enormous benefit to my students, providing them with an understanding of how these three elements work in harmony to achieve the desired result.

I believe that the key to success in teaching the performing arts is creating a safe environment where students feel free to take risks and explore. This freedom allows them to find vulnerable moments of discovery, all supported by effective teaching.

It is more productive to allow time for students to come up with answers for themselves, as opposed to feeding the answers to them. I ask key questions which lead to valuable discussions."
