My method of teaching is practical application. I assign scenes and monologues to get the student busy with learning. I use and learn what the student does from that. I am familiar with most acting techniques and apply from them all for the student.
I have an MFA in Theater and an MA in Drama. I have directed over 80 Theatre productions both professional and educational, as well as coached acting for talent agencies and teaching at colleges and universities. I have been an actor for over 20 years.
