As we slowly return to working in person, I am continuing to present many of my
Acting and Movement Master Classes for singers and stage directors Online.

Master Classes

Successful Creativity

My master classes are designed to develop techniques in people who intend to make their living from a career in the Performing Arts. I believe in aiding a performer not just to be accidentally or sporadically creative, but to be Successfully Creative: structuring independence by developing skills that allow artists no longer to need constant supervision and direction. My particular focus is to explore performance techniques from a unified physical, dramatic, and vocal standpoint. This is a true marriage of Voice, Acting, and Movement Techniques, creating speech or singing as a consequence of movement, movement that is nourished by vocal techniques, and creating the “Behavioral Life” of a character in action.
