PSA, and specifically Lisa’s private teachings have truly been such a privilege to have. I started taking classes at PSA during the beginning of the Covid pandemic and quarantine, and even in that short time, I have grown so much as a performer. Lisa gave me the encouragement and the pure expertise to not only work harder on my talents but to feel confident in them! She helped me build my repertoire, and understand parts of my voice and the emotional depths of my performances I never saw before. Lisa is so good at what she does, and I am so grateful to have the opportunity to learn from her and everyone at PSA!
