I am a professional actor/singer/dancer/writer in Los Angeles! As a magna cum laude Honors College graduate, I have vast hands-on experience with the areas of theatre, dance, choreography, music theory, singing, composition, creative and academic writing, and the list goes on. I just finished working for 2.5 years at a regional professional theatre called the Barter Theatre. At the Barter, I spent the majority of my time working in the theatre for young audiences branch, called the Barter Players. In this time, I performed with Equity actors in plays and musicals to audiences of 500+ six nights a week for six months. I also went on two national tours, taking children's plays and musicals to schools around the country. Working in children's theatre has taught me how important it is to help the next generation learn the skills and tools they need to become creative, innovative thinkers. We had the opportunity to talk to the kids before and after our performances, and I live for the hilarious and shockingly honest conversations I have with young people. If you are not in the moment, they will let you know with a shout of their opinion. They don't always clap when you expect them to. They provide a new surprise with every performance. I've become worlds better at acting since I started doing children's theatre, and these are lessons that everyone should learn. It is my goal to treat students like my equal, and to give them the confidence to speak their minds.

I have been taking voice lessons for upwards of fifteen years, and teaching them privately for 5. Having taught a private elementary student for three years in college, I cultivated my skills of translating complicated techniques and breath practices to a young mind. Since then, I have worked with a wide range range of ages, from elementary to adult students. I have also studied three years of music theory and can assist with basic principles of composition. Using my skills in composition, I have composed an original score for a professional production of A Mid

I graduated magna cum laude with honors, receiving by BFA in Musical Theatre. I have been consistently employed by a professional, LORT D regional theatre since the day after my graduation, and will begin my third contract with them in July. I have professionally choreographed, composed, and music directed all for professional productions nationally. My acting training began at my arts high school and continues daily, as I read and write about acting after our daily performances.

I work professionally as a remote copywriter for an advertising firm based out of NYC. I was an active member of the selective Honors College at Ball State University, and graduated magna cum laude with my BFA in Musical Theatre. My major allowed me to combine my love for theatre and writing in the form of playwriting. I received several commendations for my class-written plays, and was chosen to receive a paid internship to assist author Iris Rainer Dart with writing a musical adaptation of her novel "Beaches" in 2015. I have since begun my own creative writing blog about acting as an art form, which I add to regularly.

Music Theory

I have a combined four years of schooling in music theory, and use it almost daily. I am in the middle of composing an original score for a professional production of A Midsummer Night's Dream in Atlanta. I analyze sheet music as a singer/actor, which allows me to constantly keep up my skills in music theory. I love to find meaning in music based off of the structure of a song--there is so much story told in music!
Voice (Music)

Voice (Music)

I have been taking vocal lessons for nearly 15 years, and have been singing professionally for about 8. I prefer to focus on the technique and the storytelling combined, since one directly influences the other. I have been training students from elementary to college ages since 2014.

Brandy is THE BEST!

Brandy has been working with my client for many months now and we've definitely noticed a difference. Brandy is so knowledgeable about the topics she teaches and really works with you until done correctly! She's always helped and worked with our schedule making weekly vocal lessons a breeze. If you're searching for the coach that's right for you, look no further!

Anna, 25 lessons with Brandy

She is super knowledgeable about what she's teaching, Although I can't do more I learned so much in the short time I had her

Her breathing techniques helped me so much. If you're looking to find what you're doing wrong and improve on it, Brandy is the most qualified out of the few teachers I've had on this platform.
