Teaching Approach:

I believe it is vital to treat students as individuals, and work collaboratively in order to get the most out of the time we spend together.

The first session I would usually spend getting to know you as a person and discussing your reasons for undertaking acting lessons. I may ask you to sight read a piece, or perform something you already have prepared just so I can get an idea of your abilities.
It is by no means an audition, so please don't be scared! My job is to make you feel comfortable and build your confidence in acting, and I will endeavour to be as supportive as I can.
Subsequent lessons would then involve us working on specific audition speeches if you are thinking about applying for drama school, as well as audition and interviewing techniques. If you are already working but just looking to freshen up, we would also look at audition techniques, as well as voice and physical work.

My drama training, along with subsequent acting jobs and workshops have left me with a wealth of approaches and exercises to use when working with a student. I also have my own collection of monologues and plays (Classical and Modern) that I can offer.
