Private one-on-one voice and acting instruction
Private one-on-one voice and acting instruction is an opportunity for young performers to receive guidance and feedback that is tailored to their unique set of strengths and vulnerabilities. For young people who are new to the performing arts, private coaching will introduce them to healthy practice habits and provide the emotional and technical support they need to pursue their goals. More experienced performers receive advanced training and disciplined instruction that will allow them to compete for bigger opportunities.
