I've been taking lessons from Susan for more than a year now. It has been nothing less than a delight, privilege, and pleasure. Susan's professional expertise enables her to assist students on anything from communications, speech, narration, accents reduction, improv, comedy, acting, voice, and singing. Her rich and versatile experience gave her the ability to provide insightful feedback while suggesting the most relevant exercises on which to work. Susan's excellently put together recital allows students to build their confidence in a very fun and supporting environment. Susan is able to relate and work with students of all ages, be it kindergartners or professors. I highly recommend taking lessons from Susan; you'll look forward to your lessons week after week.

I can't say enough about my experience with Ken. He is very intuitive. His lessons are balence between exercises and therory. I have alway found myself mentally stimulated, with plenty of work for my fingers. He is very energetic and reaches out between lessons to give you more music to play with. His warm and friendly personality make the lessons fly by. He also willing to work through tought topics without cutting the lesson short (schedule permitting ). I really appreciate his effort into his students. He has also been pretty flexible with my shedule. As an adult these are not the piano lessons I hated as a child. Lol

I'm having a lot of fun! The hour just slips by and my monologue improves tremendously from the start of the lesson. It's also one-on-one so I get all the attention I need.

Mathman tutored my son in Geometry. He is a fantastic tutor! He was extremely patient, supportive, great teaching abilities, very personable, cool to work with, organized....he is fabulous! In addition, he communicated with my son's teacher on a regular basis, attended my son's IEP and he advocated for enhanced accommodations for my son. We are going to miss our weekly meetings. Thank you Mathman!

Bettina is absolutely astounding in her ability to coach stand-up comedy! I'd taken several comedy courses but no matter what I tried, I couldn't overcome sounding scripted. With a single Bettina coaching session, my PAR score (positive audience response) went from 26 to 34. After my second session, it went to 46 for my entire set, with some minutes at 58 PAR. Headliner PAR is 30 and above. I'd say Bettina is a total comedy, speech, acting, and coaching GENIUS. I'm not saying you'll get the same superb results. You have to want it and you have to work it, too. But I'm still astounded by the way she can tweak a chuckle into a belly laugh. Thank you, Bettina!!!

Loving my lessons with Ethan. I'm new to guitar, and he's great at starting at the very beginning. He's patient and has a great laugh.

    I have recently had the pleasure of being directed by Edward in two stage productions. He is dedicated, outrageously funny, and knows what he wants to see in the actors with whom he works. I have had opportunities to work with him in both group settings, as well as one on one. As an acting coach, he brings unique choices to the table. He challenges one to think about what one “should” do versus what one “could” do and to think outside the box. I feel confident in saying that I would work with Edward again in the future and respect his direction.

    I hired Paula to teach a swing dance lesson during my boyfriend's 30th birthday party and the whole process could not have been smoother. Paula was super flexible, easy to book with and had great follow through. She arrived perfectly on time for the lesson and was a true delight. My boyfriend has taken tons of swing dancing classes over the years and he said that she was the best teacher he's ever had. She spent time helping every couple in our group and her experience really showed. I cannot possibly recommend her more highly!

    Because not only have I been in the music business my whole life, but I am also a Medical Assistant. This gives me an advantage over most of my competition. I am not only teaching from a classical technique, but I am teaching my students from the inside out, helping them to understand their instrument fully.

    I will take you through your pieces and show you how to make them pop. If you have a monologue you've been working on and it just doesn't seem to be getting to that next step, let's take a look together. Perhaps, with a second pair of eyes (mine), we can take it to that next step. Same goes for any piece you're working on. Give me a call and let's talk.

Perhaps playing the violin in an orchestra will pluck your heart strings? How about guitar, strumming in a band, singing and accompanying for a church choir or just want to play great songs. Whatever the instrument or style (classical, sacred, jazz, musical theatre and popular), let us explore together what your talents can add to your life and those around your world.
