"We must all do theatre to find out who we are, and to discover who we could become."
"If it were not for Diane Feldman, there is virtually zero chance that I would have the confidence to do what I am capable of now. She was my coach for nine years and while the medium was musical theatre, I learned more about life and the art of presentation from studying under her than I have in any other capacity. The work we did helped prepare me for a lifetime of being a public-facing figure now that I work as a professional journalist. Our time together helped me to be on-camera as well as on the radio but also to find it in myself to showcase myself in the best manner possible. I am eternally grateful for Diane and recommend her as a mentor, teacher and so much more."
Let these QuaranTimes be a catalyst for creativity!
"Do the WORK,
and the work will work FOR you!"
~ Diane Feldman ~
I've been sharing this mantra with students for more than 25 years. The more you invest in your process, the greater the reward!
Whether you earn a role or not, you improve your skills simply by taking the steps to prepare for an audition. Whether you are in a coaching session, a class, or a production, the moments you spend developing character, making choices, constructing, deconstructing and reconstructing, move you closer to your theatrical goals.
Keep working, performing artists! These "Covid times" are a catalyst for creativity!

let's spend some QuaranTime making music together!
Each week I:
~host a themed Musical Theatre sing-along and share fun facts about the musicals we sing from as we make our way through the setlist.
~ask a quick QuarenQuestion so everyone has an opportunity to share and connect.
~recite a QuaranQuote (or two) to stimulate thought and uplift the spirit.
~am your personal accompanist as you sing (on key or off!) in the privacy of your own homes. (Shakespeare knew what he was saying when he penned those famous words: "All the world's a stage...!")
Join me the first Saturday evening of each month

"I Can't Breathe."
None of us can.
To my black and brown friends, family, brothers and sisters ... those I know, and those I don't know:
My hand is in your hand, my heart beats with your heart, I walk beside you on the path, and I will walk in front of you and behind you when the moments call me to. I hurt with you. I hurt like you. And, like you, I don't want there to be any more hurt. My tears are falling fast and hard. Tell me what to do. I am listening. I want to learn. I want to know. I want to help bring about THE CHANGE. I want to help change the system. I am committed. I am present. I am here.
