I'm taking singing lessons with Katheryn. I'm an adult. Her enthusiasm really shows, and her explanations are thorough and colorful. She's very knowledgeable about music theory and practice. She's responsive and dynamic in class, always giving feedback and adjusting the lesson to keep me progressing and learning. If I'm not getting something, she'll take the time to go over it in different ways until it makes sense; she makes a great effort to make sure that I understand what I'm doing. She regularly ties music that I like into the lessons and take-home practice, too. Each session is very fun, and at the same time I feel like I'm learning a lot throughout the entire lesson. The time flies by, but feels well-spent, and I'm always looking forward to next time.

I had an awesome experience learning with Shellie. She is an ultimate professional in her work and truly cares about your learning experience. I found her tutorials to be fun, engaging and tailor-made for my level. Shellie has a wonderful manner and always tried to make me feel challenged yet supported as I was developing my skills. It was a fresh start for me to pick up some new skills as a mature student and I am glad that I chose Shellie as my teacher; she has nurtured me into an avid learner and I am thoroughly enjoying practicing my new skills.

He helps my company every day, we take professional style company headshots on a very modest budget. Chance works with us on a fair price and always provides a lot of bang for your buck. He helped write our commercial script and helped us film it. This is my first company and Chance has made sure we opened our doors this month doing physical labor for us ladies and giving it all he's got. I can't thank him enough for all hes done.

About Us: The Dearing Studio has been open for nearly 3 1/2 years, and in that time we have established an unmatched kids & teens program in the valley. Our arts program was awarded the 2009-2010 Nickelodeon Parent's Pick for best arts class, and the 2008 Phoenix "Best Film Studio" award. In addition to being a local house for actors, the Dearing Studio has successfully aided many actors in the transition to LA. These students can now be seen on major motion pictures, television shows, national commercials and more. Currently our production studio is located on 46th Street & McDowell, and this year we anticipate an expansion into the Phoenix/ Paradise Valley area (Right off Shea and the 51). The Dearing Studio is dedicated to our local film and television market, and are involved in creating more job opportunities for local actors. Our instructors are all working actors, represented by Screen Actor's Guild agents. We are pleased to be making a living in this industry, and look forward to passing on our collective knowledge to the next generation of performers. The Dearing Studio is dedicated to enhancing life through acting. Our program is open to actors of all ages and levels of experience. It is our firm belief that the skills we impart to each student will help them in all facets of life. Our students see marked growth in their confidence, reading and writing abilities, public speaking and active listening skills. Acting requires all of these life skills and more. And remember act with passion.
