We’re chugging along with our weekly series getting to know a little more about our Private Instruction faculty at DLC. This week, we learn a little more about Ms. Janine Sunday!
Q: Where are you from? How long have you been in the area?
A: I was born in Vietnam, adopted as an infant, and raised in New Jersey. Maryland has been my home for almost 20 years.
Q: Which areas of study do you teach? How long have you been teaching?
A: I have been teaching acting and voice for about 10 years.
Q: What’s your favorite thing about teaching private lessons?
A: When a student has a breakthrough, it’s exciting. I also love when a student comes back to me after an audition or a performance and tells me that things we have been working on paid off.
Q: What’s the craziest thing that has ever happened to you in a private lesson?
A: I had a student that had been studying with me for a few months and was talking about how much she loved Sweeney Todd at Red Branch Theatre Company [the professional theatre in residence at DLC]. When I told her that I was Mrs. Lovett, she freaked out a little, and had to take a moment to recover. It was adorable and flattering.
Q: What do you do outside of teaching?
A: I’m a mom, and I still perform in the area. That keeps me pretty busy.
Q: What’s one fun fact that we should know about you?
A: Well… there are so many “fun facts” (are they REALLY fun?)… I always mention my obsession with vacuums (I love them). I stink at gardening, but I want to be good. I’m pretty crafty, and I dislike yellow mustard. I also always offer to sing “Meadowlark” even though I don’t actually know the words.
