Penny’s sound background in classical study coupled with a lifelong love of musical theatre has helped to mold her into the passionate, dedicated, and energetic educator and performer that she is today. Her instruction focuses on developing the student as a whole – working with breath, posture, confidence, characterization and artistry. She also incorporates the use of yoga and movement as tools to free the performer in mind and body. Offerings include private instruction in voice, acting, beginning piano and voice/piano combo, concentrating mainly on the genres of Broadway, Classical, Jazz and Pop. Penny has been a private instructor for over 18 years and works with students of all ages and experience levels.
