Teaching: Improv, Shakespeare, Music, and more!                                          (teaching resume below)

In addition to teaching voice lessons, Paige enjoys teaching theatre camps and classes to children, teens, and adults.  Whether she's teaching improv games or basic stagecraft, she believes that learning theatre techniques will also help people in life: with communication, empathy, awareness, team-work, and problem-solving.
