My Teaching Philosophy

I believe in teaching the student(s) to learn the skills of acting, improv, and musical theatre performance in order to guide them to gain a sense of confidence and personal mastery, and to creatively flourish, of course, but also to draw connections to their fellow human beings and the outside world. I hope that a child walks out of our class/lesson with answers about techniques and tools, but more questions about what is possible and how they can make an impact. In classes that culminate in a performance, I instill the value of ensemble–working together to achieve a common goal, and teach the concrete steps that are taken to put on a show.
