I encourage my students to approach every scene with questions and imagination. What does the character want? How are they going to get it? I always try explain how in life, when we want something, we have to come up with different tactics and approaches based off of what we would do as ourselves, and working from there. This helps to create more unique approaches and responses.
I believe that there are two components to acting: believing what you say as your character/ believing your backstory, and reacting to whatever is being said or done to your character- authentically.
I am currently a Talent Director at Barbizon, and I proudly hold a BFA in Acting from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia. I have taught children from ages 6-18 in dance and acting over the past decade. I was a teaching assistant in my high school, I have completed multiple internships in acting and stage management, and I am currently living in Los Angeles. I am contractually commercially represented, I have trained at the Playground, I am enrolled to train at the Groundlings, and I am always auditioning and living the life of a working actor. I have been on professional Hollywood sets and I am very well-spoken and always marketing and networking in any free time I may have aside from my passion and full-time job.

Miss Hannah has made me feel very comfortable and excited to learn with her. She asks me a lot of exciting questions to start our sessions, and helps me to dig deeper into the character. I feel a lot of growth in myself as an actor and overall as a person. Her passion for acting is evident. Thank you, Miss Hannah!
Miss Hannah really knows how to pull me out of my comfort zone. She makes learning very easy, and time flies when we are working together! Learning new approaches to the monologues I work on with her every week is my absolute favorite! I always am excited to work with her. She is my favorite teacher!
Hannah is an excellent, loving, loyal teacher. She knows how to give insight and perception to students to bring out the best in them. She has the knowledge and experience that inspires the student to think outside the box and dive deep into the character. Hannah is a very dependable teacher to bring your child to if you want the best of the best.
Hannah is an excellent teacher. She knows how to give insight and perception to a student whether you have some or no experience. She’s a great teacher to have, she really pulls the character you’re pursuing to life ; she gets you in touch with whatever role ( lead or supporting ) you’re trying to be. Amazing by far!
