I reached out to Beth for public speaking lessons because I have general anxiety when speaking to large groups of people, and wanted to sharpen my skills since I work for a Fortune 100 company and give presentations regularly. When I met with Beth, we first discussed what it was specifically that I was struggling with and wanted to work on. She did a really good job of helping identifying the root of my speaking fear and then helped me come up with strategies to overcome my problem. We also practiced a bunch. I brought a number of different presentations to her, and she likes to set the room up in a similar fashion to how the presentation is going to go. While I presented, she critiqued my form, offered sound advice and encouraged me along the way. After just a few lessons with her, I feel significantly more comfortable speaking in front of large groups, and have seen serious improvement. Mission accomplished! I highly recommend Beth as an instructor. While I went in for business presentations, I believe she can help with a variety of different types of speaches/acting/etc. Thanks Beth!

I was very nervous to start one on one acting lessons but the first moment I met Kelly it all seemed to wash away. She made me feel instantly comfortable and she was very energetic. She made me feel important and loved. I think that's what makes a great teacher. I highly recommend her!

Began piano lessons with Clara as a mature adult. She is extremely patient and highly skilled at breaking things down to smaller, more achievable goals. Enjoyed each lesson and opportunities to play with others.

As a singer I was not breathing properly and Jill brought out the best in me. I have been able to sing much more effectively as a result of her instruction. Phrasing was always an issue because I had poor breath support and after only a few lessons I was singing like a pro.

I first took vocal lessons with Jill back in 1994. Fast forward to 2017 when I again needed a vocal coach, and I knew I had to seek her out, and was lucky to find her again. She's got amazing intuition, she instantly knows what you need in order to improve and succinctly gives you the tools and the confidence to achieve those improvements. Despite what many believe, anyone with the right training can sing, and sing well. You need the right vocal coach. You need Jill Gabrielle.

    My son Bryson had the privilege to take private voice lessons from Victoria. We were sad when she moved from Las Vegas. Victoria was an excellent teacher teaching Bryson fundamental singing technique. Bryson has gone on to excel in musical theater and various solo performances throughout the community. Bryson is receiving various scholarship offers from colleague for performing arts. We are grateful for Victoria for her training

    I've always contacted Jeremy whenever I have an audition coming up and he always comes through by asking questions I never thought about and really finding what I was missing. He's very patient and fun and will absolutely make you feel more confident about your craft. He also has a great ear thanks to his music background and is a great resource if you have any questions on dialects.

    There is no better way to learn a language than to be thrust into speaking it. The same is true of music. Let's ditch the staff paper, scales and chord charts and learn the guitar organically by jamming on your favorite songs and developing your own material. In addition to teaching entry-level to intermediate guitar skills, I provide guitarists and singer-songwriters the opportunity and technical support to explore their musical intuition. With my own collection of various acoustic and electronic instruments I can give my students the opportunity to expand their horizons and experiment outside of conventional guitar playing. As a musician with over 10 years of experience playing in bands and composing for films and theatre, I firmly believe that jamming with a more experienced player is better than any technique lesson out there or any youtube tutorial. Let's learn your favorite songs! Let's develop and even record your own material! You'll be amazed at how easy it is to learn while you're having fun.

    About

    I have taught acting to folks of all ages; coaching actors and sharing the skills I've honed over the years is my greatest joy. I can help a beginning actor grow to a good one and turn a good actor into a great one. A longtime teacher and advocate for the gifted, I offer parents and students alike support within the public and private school systems. I know bright students and their needs--including high functioning students who exist on the spectrum--and can help establish social and communication skills. I offer a critical eye to the business professional looking to improve their communication skills. All aspects of presentation and establishing a strong first and lasting impression are explored. I have a strong background in offering support and confidence building to my clients. We set goals and accomplish what needs to be done.
