Kenshaka gave me acting lessons via video chat which is already a difficult task, but he was a great guide and mentor regardless of those obstacles. He is also very flexible and willing to be available for help outside of the scheduled lesson times. Excellent teacher and I would recommend him to others!

We highly recommend Lois For tutoring. She is well known in Honolulu and has years of experience. She tutored our granddaughter when she needed to take the entrance exams into private schools. Lois has great knowledge of children and skill in getting them to do their work. Her lessons were challenging and fun. Our grandaughter could hardly wait to return to her next session. We wish Lois was here to tutor our grandaughter in her college SATS. Carol Lehman

Joanne is a very intuitive coach. As a beginner adult, I was nervous and unsure of my abilities. Joanne took the time to assess my skill level and created a curriculum and acting exercises tailored to fit me! I've learned it's okay to be nervous, it's okay to let go and have fun. I am actually having fun taking Skype lessons and I am learning how to be authentic and real. Joanne keeps in touch between lessons to send me articles to read that will help me as well as answering questions. I couldn't be happier with my choice to hire Joanne. I'm very grateful.

During the time of operation of Let The Kids Grow Los Angeles, California 2013-2014. I had the privilege of working with and managing Mrs. Tracy Pfau, she was our head Acting instructor. She had the tasks and duties of working with underprivileged children of the community to help them stay off the streets and into the classrooms. She was able to work with children that possessed some knowledge of acting to complete beginners. She was professional and always uplifting to the children and respected them in a professional and caring manner as if they were her own. She not only taught them the basics fundamentals of acting but she showed them the professionalism and seriousness of the business surrounding a acting career. The ages of the children ranged from 4-17. As this was a after school program she would always be ready with a lesson plan and would not mind helping after hours if needed. I have learned that to be a great instructor you need to first have a great heart and a seriousness to the profession, and Mrs. Pfau is the total package as she is a great instructor and a great mentor and even after the program finished she was still willing to work with the children on a personal basis to really help these children accomplish their goals in the acting profession. I would be more than happy to recommend Mrs. Pfau in any future projects as I do not recommend people unless I really believe in them.

I can't even put into words how amazing a teacher Sean is. The best way to explain it is to tell about my recent experience in a student film and the results I see from his coaching. It's easy to say you are learning from someone but a completely different thing to be able to put those skills into practice and see the results. So many of the things I accomplished that day on set would not have been possible without the skills Sean taught me. Before “action” on one scene, I caught myself questioning my character's actions and motives and heard Sean's voice in my head reminding me to not judge the character. This bit of remembered wisdom reminded me to focus on empathizing with and being the character rather than judging her. It helped me to become the character rather than just myself portraying the character. There were multiple shots in this film where I had to cry, something I was extremely nervous about and had never been able to do on camera before. But I did as Sean taught me, and the tears came naturally. Without Sean's coaching, my emotions and the tears would not have felt or looked authentic. Sean's acting lessons have helped me immensely, and I am so thankful for everything I have learned from him. I would recommend Sean as a teacher for anyone who is serious about being an actor.

I have known Mr. Pestle for several years. He is extremely passionate about teaching, theater, acting, and writing—this shows in every aspect of his work, especially his theater productions and English classes. His encouragement, enthusiasm, and humor make him an excellent mentor. I have enjoyed learning from Mr. Pestle through discussion of literature and art! He is honest, and very easy to talk to. Mr. Pestle is awesome. I would absolutely recommend him.

Allie once said to me that she is at her best when "engaging in the collaborative process." This is only one example of Allie's striking self awareness and excitement in engaging with others in creativity. I have had the pleasure of working with Allie for the last 4 years and during this time she is consistently someone I turn to for acting coaching. Allie has a shrewd eye, and a no bull shit attitude, that makes her someone I trust as an outside eye. This coupled with the fact that Allie truly cares about the people she works with in a deep, palpable way makes her a truly unique coach. Because Allie is thoughtful about the quality of work she facilitates, as well as the well being of those around her, I consistently leave sessions with her feeling confident in my work. I cannot recommend Allie highly enough, anyone would be lucky to work with her.

Jessica Payne is an extraordinary talented teacher and coach.Specially she helped me with my acting and singing.I was a little bit nervous going into the lesson, but she did a great job of making me feel relaxed and setting up a safe and friendly atmosphere.She knew what she walking about.We spent time working on technical aspects of singing and acting(breath support, resonance, intention given, given circumstances,etc.). Then we talked a little bit about the artistic aspects of performance.Near the end we chatted about wardrobe choices and common mistakes that people make in auditions and on set.It was an extraordinary helpful lesson and now I use what I learned all the time. I highly recommend Jess to other performers, and I will use her again. Thanks for listening!!

Awesome place for kids to learn and master the art of music... My daughter took guitar,piano and voice lessons... Unfortunately we had to move and she can no longer attend... I wish they would open a location near Riverside so my daughter could continue with her art education... If you're looking for professional and affordable music classes for your kids then Piano Place Music and Arts Center is the right place for them. I am happy that my daughter had the opportunity to be a student at this family owned music school and I hope she can come back in the near future..... Beautiful family and very nice/professional teachers!

    Andrea Morgan is a teacher that inspires her students creativity and cultivates a passion for the world of theater. Andrea is sensitive to students various learning styles, and is able to teach and direct in a very interpersonal way, in order to draw out each students strengths and further their creative growth. She is structured, respectful, understanding, comical, and committed to serving her students. Andrea's passion for the art of theater creates a learning environment that encourages her students to explore their own ideas and apply to them not only in the classroom, but out in the entertainment industry. I am a former student of Andrea's and can honestly say that it is because of her teachings and encouragement that I continued to pursue acting. I also worked as the theater secretary for Andrea Morgan's theater company, Chrysalis Stage. It was a great learning experience to watch her multi task as an actor, director, dialect coach, designer, and costumer. I Learned the art of theater making from Andrea, and have a much a deeper respect for all areas of theater because of her.
