teaching + Coaching
I am a freelance teaching artist available for classes and one-on-one coaching
I have experience teaching students ages 8-16 in camp, after-school, masterclass, and pre-professional conservatory contexts.
Holding an MA from the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, I have a unique perspective on the graduate school audition process in both the US and UK.
I believe in...
nurturing an artist's unique point of view
the power of an uninhibited imagination
embracing individuality inside a collaborative environment
working safely with dangerous material
approaching work from a place of curiosity instead of judgment
risk taking work-ethic mixed with a sense of humor
Central to my teaching
is self-care and self-respect. While I understand the work of an actor might ask us to go to uncomfortable places imaginatively, emotionally, and physically, I believe in setting healthy boundaries in our work and exploring multiple “ways-in” to a moment – to keep a separation between the often personal work of an artist and the artist’s personal life. I do this with the goal of creating a safe space for exploration without sacrificing the integrity of the material being explored.
