So far we’ve had a handful of singing lessons and my daughter loves the teacher.
She is just want my granddaughter needs. Professional,sense of humor, a great teacher! My granddaughter left her with a smile on her face and is always looking forward to returning for her lessons. We are grateful to have found her...👍👍
I'm really learning a lot with Viky. She has the fundamentals down and is able to teach them. I'm really enjoying the lessons
I tried acting for the first time with Gregory. I had no experience. Gregory met with me one-on-one to explain the method he teaches. I couldn't wait to start. It's been 10 classes since then, and I'm hooked! Gregory is a fantastic teacher. He is intuitive and knows how to help you reach your potential. He creates a safe space to explore and experience acting. His teachings resonate both in and out of the classroom. He facilitates a professional learning environment that is positive, supportive, and fun!
Shannon is a very gifted acting coach. She helped me book and AMC show from a self-tape, an episode of a half-hour comedy on TV Land and to get a call back to a producer session for a guest starring role on CBS. She gives individual attention and has never coached me by rote. She truly works with the actor in front of her. In the many times I’ve gone to her, she’s taken her time, worked with me until I felt comfortable and confident, and by the end, made it all feel so simple and clear that once I walked through the audition room door I was at ease in my talent, my moment-to-moment work, and the story that the writers needed to see to know that I could do the job. She, quite naturally, helped me to get to the point where I could just bring myself without the worry of what to do or not to do. She also served as my vocal coach on the most recent production I directed and was able to guide the cast to decisions and choices that they were struggling with, creating a decisive and clear line of action with each actor. She works well with individuals and groups. I’d gladly recommend her to any actor with a big audition coming up or to any actor just looking to develop their on-camera acting skill. -Carter Gill
I have worked with Katie on several occasions as part of a vocal ensemble. She is both incredibly talented as a singer and choral leader. She has impeccable sight-singing skills, and her ability to go from classical to Broadway to pop/rock/folk music is seamless. A real pro!
I started lessons at Total Theatre Lab with Caroline Thomas a bout a year ago. I knew absolutely nothing about acting aside from taking a class at my local college. This was nothing like it. I first met Caroline for tea so we could discuss my goals and what kind of acting I would like to pursue and a little bit of my background. I was a musician for 16 years and lost most of my hearing playing loud concerts and festival shows before working in loud dog kennels. I wanted to do something different in the performance field and I was very into television drama and dramedy. Within the next few weeks she had picked out the perfect monologue for me to get started on. In time I joined the group class where I learned more about improv, sense memory, movement, scene work, and was able to use a lot of my production skills from both music and working on tv and movie sets to help make our finalized videos look top notch! I'd recommend studying with Caroline to anyone who wants to learn how to act the right way. Her past successes are only a part of the great work she does. She is putting out highly trained professional actors ready for the big screen and theatres!
I'm so glad that Mario has been my teacher. I had an exquisite and enlightening experience studying acting with Mario. I am so sad to see it end! Mario has always expressed himself in a clear and concise manner with a touch that fuels creativity and uninhibited expression.
Wendy worked with my daughter for a year and was phenomenal!!! She taught her how to focus and articulate emotion into her dialogues and so much more. My daughter absorbed everything Wendy taught her and loved implementing it on her auditions. Wendy makes it fun and exciting as well as keeping it stress-free. She is truly an OUTSTANDING & PROFESSIONAL person. Thank you Wendy!!!
David was able to give me new insights to songs I have sung since my 20's and how to think about them many years later and make them my own! He also has such an excitement and passion about music and singing that it is catching and, indeed, reminds one of what it is all about!
I love taking voice lessons with Lizzie! She's very personable and accommodates what you want to learn. I'm a pianist and piano teacher, and Lizzie is helping me with proper technique. She selected a variety of fun songs to help me work toward my goals. She gives clear direction to help you sing tough passages with ease. Lizzie has extensive experience in musical theatre and a wide repertoire and has studied with some of today's greatest vocal teachers. She's incredibly talented, and an amazing teacher! I could not recommend her more highly!!
I went to Josh to prepare for an audition which required two contrasting monologues. Josh was helpful to adapt the text so I could focus on the key aspects of each script. Josh provided genuine feedback and I enjoyed his bluntness. He is very easy to work with and I highly recommend him.
Erika Ewing is the real deal. Her attention to detail and specificity in terms of beat work, acting choices and analyzing text is nonpareil. But not only is she one of the most technically gifted and detail-oriented preceptors in the acting world; she is also one of the most truly creative and artistic souls that I have ever gotten the chance to work with. I wholeheartedly recommend Erika to anyone who is willing to grow leaps and bounds as an actor and artist.
Ralf has a true passion and awareness towards actor and the effort their art demands of them. No matter the project, he encourages one to take big risks but never asks them to compromise their own choices. A true artist's artist. Everyone should work with him at some point.
I am a mobile acting coach. I have over 20 years of acting experience and passion to share with my clients.
I have great pleasure performing theatrically and musically with Bree Klauser, and have known her for four years. She is intelligent, personable, very professional, and funny. Bree has a tremendous talent for understanding her students and artistic partners on all levels; she will train you and encourage you based on YOUR personality and YOUR style...even if you don't know what it is yet. She is a master of pitch and tone and health maintenance of the voice, both as a singer and actor. When you are learning from Bree, she will make sure you are engaged and excited to practice your craft. Also, she will give it to you straight, so don't think you can hide behind any "walls" with this woman. I promise you will have a lovely experience with Bree Klauser as your instructor, you will become a more confident and skilled artist, you will begin to apply your skills to all parts of your life, and you will definitely laugh more than once.
I have a lot more passion for music than others, which I try to inspire in my students in the way I was inspired by my teachers. I'm also very committed to music and I work hard and care for each individual student.
