Young actors (12+) are welcome to study with me if they have some experience and the commitment to do the work, both in session and at home.
The young actor needs an age appropriate monologue from a published play which we will prepare for an audition or to practice acting skills.
If she/he is preparing a role for stage, or film, we collaborate on the discovery and development of her/his character within the context of the story.
Focus is also given to vocal expression and body language. We explore the relationships, the needs and the struggles of the character.
If he/she wants to work on a song, I will help the actor to delve into the lyrics, story, character and context of the song to make it a more specific and energized performance.
