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!

I'm early into my lessons with Lana and I already love her approach and personality. She explains the theory of acting in a manner that's simple but inspirational. Can't wait to learn more and have fun along the way.

My daughter is an aspiring professional performer. She has taken private lessons with Chloe and we have nothing but wonderful things to say about her. My daughter is a natural belter. Chloe has taught her that belting too frequently can be harmful to vocal cords. Chloe taught her how to produce a large sound while protecting her voice. This is extremely important to her as she hopes to one day sing professionally. Chloe is kind, supportive and a true professional. I truly recommend taking Classes with Chloe!

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!

I decided to start taking voice lessons again after 10+ years. Jose have made this decision worth every minute. He is very easy and fun to work with. He's also patient and I feel more comfortable singing again after every lesson with him. Everything takes practice and he makes this learaning process awesome.

My experience with Broadway Bound was exceptional. The training in dance - voice lessons and the “Workshop” program were intense in the best of ways. I learned what it takes to be a true triple threat, and I also gained a ton of confidence by the classes provided by Broadway Bound. Not only did I gain experience is the artistic world, I also gained a second family. The love, friendship and praise for one another was in all ways a “dream come true”. I still have many best friends from Broadway Bound today. I am now a professional dancer at The Metropolitan Opera ( second season ) and I have performed in 6 professional productions of “West Side Story” where I played Chino / Sharks, toured the USA in Chicago the Musical with Christie Brinkley, Brandy, Jerry Springer, Jennifer Nettles and more stars, one Off-Broadway credit and a list of professional productions including Mamma Mia, Sweet Charity, and Man of La Mancha to name a few. This is possible because of the strong training I gained while attending Broadway Bound. The hard work paid off and is still paying off. Thank you Broadway Bound from the bottom of my heart. When you attend Broadway Bound , please enjoy every single second and have fun!

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.

I could not have asked for a better voice teacher. Eliyahu put his heart into his teaching. He would always come up with new, fun exercises to get my voice to do what he wanted it to (like magic!), and I also felt so comfortable with him, and never EVER was worried to take risks with my voice in front of him. I also have stage fright and he helped me work on this greatly. He was able to give me wonderful advice on acting and showed my that there is so much more to singing than just hitting the right notes. Eliyahu is a wonderful person and teacher and I highly, highly recommend him! Best voice teacher EVER!

Beverly makes me feel comfortable about singing again and is helping me replace old, bad habits with new exercises to help rebuild my technique as wells my self- confidence. Singing is FUN again! She is very kind, patient and very knowledgeable! She has helped me tremendously, as well, with my acting and interpretation, as well as my diction and writing out IPA (International Phonetic Alphabet). I highly recommend Ms O'Regan Thiele!!

I studied with Josh a few times to prepare for an audition which consisted in two contrasting monologues. Josh provided very direct feedback which I appreciated. He was also able to help me tweak a few things so I could land more. I highly recommend his valuable help and insightful comments.

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.
