Lessons & Coaching in Theatre and Music
I am a current musician and performer around the Twin Cities area. I work with various youth theaters and music programs, and can help students with auditions through coaching and connecting them with opportunities around the area.
I have a background in improvisation and clowning, which gives me the ability to adapt to various students and connect with them wherever they are coming from.
I love seeing someone get excited about music! I enjoy being a part of the moment when a student makes that connection. I love learning new ways to approach the subject through interactions with students and new points of view. And I love the silliness and amazing process of being a part of someone's learning. It can be scary, it can be weird, but it's a brilliant journey to get to share with someone.
