I offer private coaching sessions and consultations year round.
Depending on your specific goals and needs, our work together will include the following:
Intensive, experiential, one on one work on your audition monologue or scene. We will prepare you for upcoming auditions or simply work on a piece for your own practice.
Consultations on possible next steps, including networking, headshots, and resumés.
Scenes: You are welcome to bring a scene partner to work on a scene of your choosing in preparation for an audition or a role or simply to practice your skills.
The nature of our time together is collaborative and individualized. We delve into the character and the story, asking questions and exploring adjustments that contribute to the authenticity and specificity of your performance.
Vocal expression and body language are also parts of our focus.
This work helps to identify actor habits or blocks, and helps to increase presence and confidence.
Creative acting is at once both personal and public. It's a process of getting to know your many colorful parts, and confidently telling the story, using your imagination, intelligence, intuition, and playfulness.
Our work is supportive in nature. Challenging and inquisitive, we work with your unique strengths and talents. This helps the actor to feel confident and grounded in her/his work and inspired to continue practice at home, at the theatre or on the set, implementing rehearsal suggestions we have discussed in class.
Songs and Singers: While I am not a music/voice teacher, I coach and work with singers on making the lyrics their own by discussion of the character, the context and the story. This leads to specific choices that enhance and energize the performance.
Other Professionals: I coach and welcome professionals in other lines of work who feel they will benefit professionally or personally from one on one, individualized coaching.
Skype: If we have already worked together and you’re unable to come in person we can discuss a coaching session via skype.
