When I came to Jan, I had damaged my voice with another coach with only 2 weeks to my next show. I was feeling really hurt and my voice had been hoarse for 6 days due to the last lesson I took. Jan gave me a warm up plan for my voice that would allow me to practice without risking further damage to my vocal cords. After following her prescription, I could feel my voice starting to respond. After 3 lessons my voice is returning to health and sounding sweeter again. I still have one more lesson before show time. I have no doubt all is and will be well for me on that stage. Yay! I'm so grateful to have found you.

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!

Dr Stephanie is a wonderful, highly experienced teacher, who focuses on the fundamentals of voice and breathing and also individual voice style and quality. She is supportive, flexible with my difficult schedule, and always fun to work with! I would highly recommend her, especially to those looking for a more academic approach to voice lessons and those interested in classical and musical theater training.

Rena is an excellent vocal instructor. This is the first time I've taken voice lessons, and I really appreciated first learning about my instrument with excersies that broadened my vocal range and focused on proper breathing techniques. She holds a wealth of knowledge and experience on all things voice. Lastly, she is patient but knows when to push her students to achieve their potential.

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 used to be able to sing but now I merely croak. I just began weekly voice lessons with Natalia and after only one session my pipes are stronger and my range has improved. As a teacher she is both a delight and knows her stuff. Best of all, she's extremely encouraging and creates an environment that allows you to make mistakes. The location is both professional and warming, just like Natalia.

I received Voice lessons from April for almost 10 years. She took my voice from passable to truly enjoyable. She is extraordinarily knowledgeable about the voice and how to train it. She teaches any style of singing as well. She can improve any voice, I truly believe this.

After almost about... I dunno, what is it, 3 or 4 years of talking Amazing Voice Lessons? Anyway, after about that many years or so, I gotta say that these lessons really HAVE improved my singing a lot. Not only has it helped my singing and performance on stage, but it's also helped my self-esteem and enabled me to relax and just let my hair down. I hope to keep continuing these lessons for as long as I can because trust me, AVL is a gift that just keeps on giving.

I came to Lou for voice acting lessons after a long layoff. The atmosphere is very casual and easy to work in. He also has the ability to edit our sessions, so I always get recordings of our sessions to use for reference. I would absolutely recommend Lou to anyone looking to explore this kind of work.

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.

Mia creates such a positive and encouraging environment with such good vibes! As someone who has never taken voice lessons before, I immediately felt comfortable singing around Mia. She picks up the strength and weaknesses and challenges to build and grow from them. I also think it's great that she has her own recording setup. So much fun!

Miss Carolyn's coaching is very, very helpful for my auditions, in terms of script analysis, creating characters, and career developing. I thought I already knew all the subtext of my monologues. But Carolyn pointed out more details which I ignored but very important for my understanding of the structure and arc of my monologues. For example, for my classic monologue, Carolyn taught me a very important lesson that, instead of cutting the parts I felt like unnecessary to say, I should figure out the reason why the character repeat or exaggerate the same t thing at certain places, what her intention is, and what quality it reflects the character has. Knowing that the "place" my character is in is very important to me, Carolyn asked series of questions to help me to explore the place, which offers me a better sense of reality for the scene. By exploring the physical gesture of my characters, Carolyn helped me to gain better ownership of my two different characters. As a person whose first language is not English, Carolyn helped me with my diction and taught me the method to practice my pronunciation. The relationship of diction and acting was ignored by me. I used to think as long as your intention and truthful feeling are there, your acting will be good. But Carolyn let me realized that the more I make myself clear, the better intention and feeling I can express through my language, the more fluid my acting will be, and the better audiences will know from what my characters say. we also run through the whole audition several times, I got to know what the recruiter expect from students, and what I should put on during the audition. During the five session classes, I gained more confidence about my strengths and I was affected by Carolyn's bright personality, her passion for acting and her professionalism . I just finished my all auditions. And I got callback from NYU. Now waiting for the results. Fingers crossed.

I've been working with Brian Gillet since 2011 to this present day. One of my fellow art classmates recommended Brian's services and I am so grateful for the chance to work with him on Private Voice Lessons. Brian helped me on so many levels with my voice technique, performance skills, and confidence within myself as a performer. I can honestly say that I am the performer that I am today because of Brian's help and guidance. His support and diligence on helping me with material is extremely important in a vocal coach. And you would be lucky to have the opportunity to work with such a fine teacher.

Bonnie has truly transformed my voice. She coached me through insane vocal tension and in no time sent me off to become a singer. Helping me to apply for competitions and schools throughout my time with her. I have seen her teach all different voice types and everyone who takes lessons has a positive, productive experience. I highly recommend her to any singer. Beginner or professional.

I began voice lessons with Yen Lin in 2013 with absolutely no background in voice whatsoever, and in the back of my mind I thought I'd never be all that great. I was given a variety of wonderful exercises to really help me find the right technique. After working with her for two years, I would definitely say I have improved immensely, I have the confidence I need to pursue performing in musical theatre shows, and I even took away a few solid audition songs to use from these lessons. Lesson times were very flexible, which was great for my busy, changing schedule. I really really enjoyed working with and learning form Yen Lin as she was patient and encouraging yet pushed me and inspired me to reach my full potential. She's a fantastic teacher and the sweetest person and I would recommend her to anyone looking to hone their technique and performance skills or anyone who is just beginning and looking to find their inner vocal power. Not to mention her talent is out of this world!
