Aside from performing, Darrell has had a passion for teaching children for over 10 years. His style combines a focus on strong technique while simultaneously guiding students in finding the joy in what they do. He feels this is what truly stands out in performance! He works with all ages and backgrounds specializing in musical theatre, jazz and tap.
In addition to his background with youth, Darrell often finds himself teaching fellow peers from the business. Rarely forgetting any combo he’s ever learned in an audition, he is someone you can reach out to when you want some extra attention for that callback. Even that appointment for a show that’s been running forever and you’re the only person in the city who’s never done the combo, he can help!
