My daughter has been taking voice lessons with Mary over Skype for the past six months. She had previously been taking in-person lessons at a local music school but she felt she wasn't improving as much as she wanted to. I was skeptical about how well lessons over Skype would work, but after watching my daughter perform the lead in Bye Bye Birdie a few weeks ago, I am no longer skeptical. The difference in her voice from her last musical was notable. She has always had raw talent and a good voice, but her performance in Bye Bye Birdie was at a different level. The maturity and quality of her voice really set her apart and I am excited to see what she does next. I would never have thought that lessons over Skype could be as effective as (or more effective than!) lessons in person, but Mary has clearly proven that it is the teacher that matters, not the medium. I highly recommend her!

This class will change your life. Whether you are an actor, a director, a writer, an artist, or simply a human wanting to have greater access to emotional depth this class is a profound experience. This is not your typical acting class, but a part of a spiritual journey where Deborah is a shaman who guides you to your best work.

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!

"Ava is magic. Working with her on all sorts of audition material and genres, I always walk out of my coaching feeling more confident, more grounded, and more prepared. She has this exquisite ability in zapping into my personal strengths as an actor and guide me into using them through the material in a very human and honest way. She also makes the process fun, which I carry with me into the audition room." Aimée Cucchiaro actor/singer/life coach

Ms. Ortiz is extraordinary; her insight and knowledge of the acting and entertainment industry are invaluable. She is generous, nurturing, profoundly perceptive, and very creative in her approach. I have had the great honor of working with Ms. Ortiz as my acting coach/teacher, and have had the opportunity to see her in action as a Casting Director and Producer. I highly recommend her as a coach to actors of all levels, as well as to any companies/individuals looking for a top-notch Casting Director or Producer for their project.

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!

Danaya and I taught middle and high schooler's a fifty minute session on the elements of poetry. We focused on methods of self-expression, the importance of imagery and connecting the art of written word to the theater. She is an excellent teacher, and really connects with her students. She gives quality one on one time, and instills hope and the importance of good work ethic in all of her pupils, and I am happy to have worked with her. As a graduate of The Juilliard School, she is well versed and highly trained to accommodate your audition material needs, private coaching, and any advice you may need to further your theatrical education.

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!!!

Jeremy taught me so much about how to be an effective public speaker and interview candidate. I have worked with him for two years now and have been able to use the techniques Jeremy gave me in several places and feel so much more confident about what I’m doing! I used to be totally terrified about getting up in front of groups to speak, but Jeremy gave me specific things to do before, during and after and it’s so much easier. Also, some of the acting exercises we worked on are really fun and I can do them in my daily life to improve my diction and communication skills. Such a great value and I feel he tailored his work to exactly what I needed. I still work with him when I need a brush up or when I’m prepping for something important.

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.
