I work on the audition panel at The Royal Central School Of Speech And Drama,(where i trained) and i absolutely love being a part of this process.I also mentor several actors & singers and have worked with many international young actors (french,swedish,portugese & Korean). I have had great success with students gaining entry to drama schools and singers working in the music industry, which has given me immense joy.
The key elements for me are, cultivating courage,confidence and the ability to see ourselves as artists.
I consider it a privilege to see the flower of a student's life open....
I work with the person in front of me.One of the amazing challenges in teaching is finding the key that enables a student to unlock their greatness.
