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!

James McDunn had been teaching my 3 girls piano for at least 3 years. They love him and they are making gigantic leaps and strides in their studies. I highly recommend Jamey for piano lessons.

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.

My 7 year old daughter beams when she leaves her voice and piano lessons! Joellyn is so positive and encouraging, with great insight and perspective. This past weekend she had the time of her life at the competition and is full of pride whenever she shows our family her trophy! We love Sweet Rhapsody! Thanks so much!!

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.

Linda is not only talented, but she is able to inspire my son to work harder and want to play the piano. She has so much patience and energy for working with kids. My son actually said he would only take piano lessons if he could have Ms. Linda is his teacher!

    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

    In 2015 spring semester, for about 3 months, Megan helped me a lot keep up with NPU choir that I had never tried before in my life. I didn't know how to project my voice, make correct diction, and breathe properly for choir pieces, but Megan taught me wonderfully from basics in very effective way. She tried hard to make up for my weak points in such a short period through great communications. She supported me so much by saying that I have a great voice, always positively encouraging with smile. I could feel that she really wanted to help me. I was lucky to have Megan as my voice teacher. I can't thank her enough for giving me a meaningful experience.

    Asanté is one of the best coaches that has ever taught me. We always started off with fun warm ups ! That was one of my favorite parts. He’s excellent and cares deeply about his students. If you need a coach, he’s the best choice 👍🏽

    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.

    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.
