Nicolas worked with my son on his high school math. My son was having a terrible time in his classes, and Nicolas acted as a guide and tutor though the years. He was very patient and understanding, and always arrived on time for the tutoring sessions. In the end, my son wound up with A's and B's in the classes, and was accepted to his first-choice college. Thanks, Nicolas!

Dr. Maureen Spranza, is a great music teacher, my son is taking piano classes with her and I'm very grateful with her, because she always take the extra time to make sure my kid is learning, my kid loves Mrs. Maureen because she is a great teacher but also she is a great human being, she really cares about her students. And she not only plays the piano, she plays all the instruments, I hope to see my son become a great musician thanks to the dedication that Maureen puts in his classes. She is a great teacher, she really cares about the education of her students.

My 9 year old daughter is just starting out in musical theatre and Anne's coaching is just such a difference maker for my daughter in learning the how's and why's of stage presence, singing and acting. My daughter learns best 1:1, so she gets so much more out of Anne's instructions and feedback than when my daughter does musical theatre group classes. It's a great adjunct. Anne is warm, nurturing and very professional. I can tell she wants the best for my daughter and the instruction is done with so much care, thought and detail.

Cynthia was an excellent resource for me to get prepared for my audition. She found a variety of monologues in my range for me to choose from. I can tell that she really takes time to choose monologues that would work with my talent. I know that she really cares about my success in my audition, she is very encouraging. She provides constructive feedback and challenges me during every session. She uses some really helpful exercises to help me get into character. She has also been very flexible with my schedule! I'm so glad to have her help, it is so nice to have someone to keep me on track!

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!

I have both of my kids going to this academy now. My son and my daughter. The performance program is truly a divine cup of tea. If you want dance teachers (life coaches) who inspire your children to be all that they can be and more then you should inquire about a class. My son's speech has dramatically improved since he joined a class. He has gained a new found confidence and is so proud to do a good job all his own. If you want to see a painting come to life through dance right before your eyes then Lyric Performing Arts Academy can transform your child. Just as a paint brush begins on a blank canvas, when your child hits the floor through a dance performance, ultimately Lyric Performing Arts Academy produces a masterpiece.

Both of my children (11 and 12 years old) took the audition preparation class at Stage Business with Michael Berry! This class focused on two specific auditions and consisted of four, two-hour sessions. Not only did they work on their audition pieces and receive invaluable feedback, but they were taught how to search for age appropriate material and were given online sources to use for scripts. What we found the most helpful and special about Stage Business is that there is an intense focus on decoding and analyzing text. So, not only were my children learning how to present the information that they were working on at their upcoming auditions, but they also learned how to attack every script and performance in the future. Michael Berry is worth his weight in solid gold. The knowledge that he is willing to share with actors from a directors perspective is inspiring and confidence boosting. We look forward to working with Stage Business for a long time to come!

Both of my children have taken classes through the Lead Tree! They began with audition workshops and moved onto more intense character development with Michael. I would recommend this program to everyone! Michael not only provides invaluable audition techniques and tools, but he also builds confidence. Regardless of whether or not either of my children continue with acting, we will continue with these classes because they are teaching my kids to be confident, composed public speakers. And that is a tool that every child needs.

Got a traffic ticket by a police officer or those photo cameras? Got a photo radar ticket? Or a speeding ticket? Make your worst experience a pleasant one at Rocky Cologne’s Comedy Traffic School. We are the only local comedy traffic school in San Mateo County, that is taught by a professional comedian for 14 years. You will learn a lot about all the new traffic laws, as we cover all the new traffic technology. When you leave our class, you will be hip to everything that is going on out there, this will prevent future costly tickets. Getting a ticket can be confusing. Need advice? Not sure what to do next? Call us and we can help you through the process. Yeah, it’s a real bummer you got a ticket, but you can turn an unfortunate situation into a fun experience. We are a local company in Burlingame, and we talk about all the new traffic technology and new traffic laws. When you leave our class you'll be hip to everything that's going on, out on the road. Here’s just what a few of very satisfied classmates had to say on Yelp and Yahoo: Informative, fun, and funny. I have to admit I was not looking forward to spending Saturday in traffic school. Much to my surprise, the day flew by and in addition to being entertained, I learned a lot about all the new traffic laws. It was especially helpful to learn that California has increased traffic tickets by 5X, and that there are cameras everywhere. I also learned that people are getting tickets, for even going a little over the speed limit. I hope I don't have to go back, but if you have to go, I highly recommend Rocky. - Marissa M. Hillsborough gave 5 stars Rocky makes the class go by quick, and they're very fun. The school was referred to me by a relative, and I'm very grateful for it. It was fun, I enjoyed it. I would recommend it to anyone. Go get a ticket and call today. Just kidding, but this class is probably the best it gets. - K. P. Pacifica gave 5 stars I couldn’t believe how easy Rocky made things. He had several class times to choose from (nights or weekends). The hotel was easy to find and easy to get to. The seats were comfortable, the class was fun, and the time went by quickly. I’ve referred 3 of my friends. Give rocky a call, his classes fill up fast. - G. White San Mateo gave 5 stars We provide all convenient locations, with comfortable seating, water service on the tables, coffee and tea in the lobby, and free parking. Everything with us is first class. We offer weeknights, week day, and weekend classes. Check our other Yelp reviews at Yelp. Don’t wait till it’s too late, give Rocky a call now. We are serving the following areas: San Mateo, Burlingame, Belmont, San Bruno, Millbrae, South San Francisco, Foster City, San Carlos, Redwood City, Hillsborough, Daly City, Menlo Park, Palo Alto, Los Altos, and Mountain View.

Personal interest. It's all about getting to know the ins and outs of everyone I work with one-on-one. Their background, family life and sense of humor. In other words I hone in on what are the elements that make this person naturally funny. And I help them take that big leap from being 'living room' funny to getting paid for being funny. Plus, I have the advantage of over thirty years experience in the entertainment industry.
