Holly is available for private coachings and master classes.
Holly brings a unique blend in her approach to musical theater, by combining her classical and contemporary vocal training with her background in the Meisner acting technique. Using Sanford Meisner’s foundation of “the reality of doing,” Holly helps each individual use a set of tools to live truthfully under their personal set of imaginary circumstances.
As a working actor, Holly practices what she teaches on a daily basis. She works with each student to “speak their language” and help them find their nugget of truth as they approach song and text. She believes in a safe and positive learning environment and strives to empower artists to live boldly and fearlessly in their truth.
Holly studied the Meisner Technique in New York City at the JoAnna Beckson Studio, and subsequently apprenticed under JoAnna Beckson to earn her teaching credentials in the Meisner Method.
Holly has taught, and is available to teach, both in the USA and in Europe. She taught at the Joop van den Ende Academy in Hamburg, Germany, until its closing, and she is currently a freelance docent at several musical theater conservatories in Hamburg, in song interpretation. Her latest opportunity is working with the talented team teaching the young child actors vocal and acting technique for TINA – The Tina Turner Musical running in 2019, at the Operettrnhaus Theater in Hamburg.
