Vocal coaching for beginning singers emphasizes solid vocal production technique through the development of strong breath support and proper placement of the soft palate. With a sound understanding of the physical fundamentals, the singer has the flexibility to perform safely and capably in a variety of styles, from operetta and musical theatre to contemporary pop and rock. Once these physical foundations are achieved, the focus is placed on musicality, eloquent and effective phrasing, and storytelling-through-song, because after all, that’s what it’s all about! Lessons are available for kids as well as adults.
Acting is all about reacting honestly to imaginary circumstances. Private acting lessons emphasize organic communication, freeing the voice and body, "inside out" moment-to-moment connection, emotional honesty, script analysis, and performance technique.
