I am a dedicated actor and teacher with a background in language art. I have participated in master classes at Shakespeare Theatre. I was recently employed at Berlitz Language Center and at Wolf Trap Performing Arts Center. I am a recipient of the WFTV Award for Best Actress. I am a current employee of Montgomery County Public Schools.
Sam Shin is an amazing singer. He has amazing talent and is also an amazing person. His lessons are the best! His classes are so fun, yet so productive. You learn so much in such little time. He makes you feel so comfortable and he really boosts your confidence. I had a very quiet and had almost no confidence but only after about three lessons I felt as if I could sing all day in front of anyone without caring. He makes singing so much fun. My voice has become so much louder and clearer within only four classes. I've only known him for about five weeks, but it feels like forever. I'm always excited to go to each lesson because each class is always a surprise. You walk out each week finding something new about your voice. I never knew my voice could get so loud, but in a good way. He has performed with American Idol season 2 winner, Ruben Studdard, at Consititution Hall, he was NY Harlem Apollo Theater Competition's 4-time winner, he has performed at the Barack Obama presidential fundraising concert, he has been on the Smithsonian documentary on American Music History, and a lot more. I can guarantee you that within only a couple classes you will see a distinctive change in your voice as long as you follow his steps and listen to his methods. If you want to learn from the best definitely choose Sam because he won't let you down! His teachings have really changed my perspective on my voice and I am now a proud singer. I am obviously not a professional but I really believe I can succeed with him by my side. -Michelle Kim-

DLC offers a variety of programs that appeal to people of different ages and interests. Young children are introduced to the performing arts in our preschool and beginning acting classes. Children and youth in elementary, middle and high school learn and improve their drama skills as they participate in musical and dramatic productions. Older youth and adults who are ready to make a larger commitment have the opportunity to participate in our audition-only productions. Classes and private lessons in voice, acting, and audition preparation are available for people of all ages. Our private instruction curriculum goals are the following: * Establishing age appropriate varied repertoire * Executing proper vocal and breathing technique * Displaying consistency of character throughout song and/or monologue * Learning proper audition etiquette and assisting with role/show preparation (where applicable)
I am so happy I met Susanna and Jerrod! They're both phenominal teachers. They taught all three of my children to sing and play the piano through private instruction and group classes. They have found the instruction fun yet challenging and have really learned a lot. Thanks so much!
Mr. Black has been an excellent acting coach for my 10 year old daughter. My daughter has been great in practicing her monologues. H comes to my house twice a month and he takes one hour or sometimes more to go coach my daughter with voice coaching, reading her lines and posture. This is his third visit and so far my daughter has been focused and enjoys his coaching. The quality of his work is great . everything has worked out well so far and I like Mr. Black's flexibility and willingness to work with my busy schedule.
My teenage daughter has had several lessons with Orla and we have found her to be professional, kind and extremely knowledgeable about mechanics of the voice as instrument. She brings her enthusiasm and warmth to each lesson and my daughter very much enjoys working with her. In the few lessons that they've had so far, we have seen improvement in both voice technique and comfort of performance.
Michael Replogle has been my go-to acting coach for many years. I've been an actress for about 11 years now, and I would not be where I am today without his help. We worked together many times in Northern Virginia, and I moved to New York City to pursue my acting career and any time I have an audition coming up I need to prepare for, he is always there to help me out. If I can't make it back to Virginia to see him in person, he happily offers to Facetime or Skype me. He is also flexible about working around my schedule, I have a full time job, classes, and other auditions, so when I ask "can you please work this monologue with me tonight? It might be late, because I won't get home until 9pm" his immediate response is "of course." In terms of the work he does with me and other actors, it's amazing how he can evaluate what exactly that particular actor needs and how to get them to perform their best. He has an amazing eye and is very good at communicating in versatile ways with many different kinds of actors. Michael Replogle is not only great at coaching, he loves to do it. He himself is an extremely talented actor, and has worked with every kind of actor you can think of. You will be shocked by how much improvement you see in yourself after working with him. Trust me.
Jocelyn taught English to groups of 10-15 English language learner adults at our organization. She was a very effective instructor. Her students showed high levels of educational gain and reported being very satisfied with their experiences in her class. She is energetic and personable - I definitely recommend her!
