Summary

As an audition coach, it’s my job to give performers the tools to reach their audition best with confidence, grace, and a sense of fun. As a director, it’s my job to find what works for each performer and lead them toward excellence. And as a teaching artist, it’s my job to not only teach acting and singing skills, but also to leave room for my students to teach me a thing or two.
