A BIT ABOUT MY TEACHING METHODS?
I have been been deeply involved with theatre since I was 11 yrs old. It saved my life. Without out theatre I would have been a mere shell of myself.
With a formal education (Bristol Old Vic Theatre School 1971-4) and a qualification in teaching the Performing Arts (Cert ED FE 2003), I have now had over 50yrs experience in teaching Acting and Improv skills, in 3 different languages (English, German and Danish).
Parallel to this, I have been extraordinarily blessed with a pioneering career in Theatre, Dance, Film and Stage Direction in England and Europe; I have worked with some of the greatest artistic talents and minds. Yes - I have been very lucky indeed. My teachings have evolved out of many of my experiences in the professional world, both good and bad.
Over the years I have developed a fascination for the human creative spirit and the vital importance of SELF-ACTUALISATION through the arts. My teaching methods are drawn from a rich background in METHOD and CLASSICAL acting techniques and, above all, shaped by a unique approach to building confidence in one's SELF, through the art of ACTING and authentic SELF expression.
