Teaching Philosophy

I believe that teachers who draw from their own life experience have some of the most unique and valuable information to offer students.


Teachers who constantly explore and keep up with trends in their field have a wealth of first hand knowledge to pass along, as well as personal contacts to help their students in the professional world.  Equally important is maintaining a positive and nurturing work environment that allows the student to be vulnerable while exploring and growing as artists and as people.


As a teacher, it is my commitment to provide the tools needed to build and sustain professional careers.  I achieve this by:


•    Giving supportive but honest feedback so students can develop their own critical ear.

•    Empowering students with confidence and the knowledge that each has something unique to offer.

•    Encouraging students to focus on and use their strengths while working on any weaknesses.

•    Catering to a student’s needs with personalized exercises, and instilling in each the importance of a positive work ethic.

•    Providing students with my own personal contacts and referrals when appropriate.


While I believe in the importance of vocal and acting technique, I also encourage my students to explore their craft in ways that inspire them. This will serve as a solid foundation for a career in any aspect of the business.


As an artist, I keep up with my own rigorous studies. I take classes, lessons and attend performances.  Always open to learning from other people and observing how others teach, I ask myself, “What are the qualities I look for in a teacher?” and seek to emulate and refine those qualities in my own teaching methods. 

A community that loves and respects musical theatre represents a cornerstone in the future of the business. That truly inspires me and, through teaching, I seek an opportunity to share my passion with that community.
