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 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!

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 have been so blessed to have met Crystal. I can say confidently that she is by far the best acting teacher I have ever had. The way she constructs her words to assist you in enhancing your work is impeccable. Every time we have worked together I have left feeling very clear and accomplished about every detail in my work. Since I started working with her I have been consistently booking. Crystal has also helped me book modeling gigs. She has a special eye for producing the very best idea in anything that we work on together. I recommend her to every actor and model I meet.

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!

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!!

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.

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!!!

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 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.

About

I offer affordable private voice lessons for adults, children and teens to help them develop a strong foundation in vocal technique and song interpretation. My singing philosophy is to help students better understand their own voice and find the confidence to express who they are through song. I am an educator and a classically trained singer.

About

I am a classically trained singer and actress based in NYC with my Master’s in Vocal Performance from a Juilliard trained former Metropolitan opera star at the University of Kansas. I love teaching the love of singing and helping guide people to find their unique sound and showing them their singing technique so they can use their true and natural voice.

About

I coach a team of upper school girls (including the current league singles champion) on technique, strategy, mental toughness, conditioning, and match play. They finished the 2011 season with a winning record of 8-2; and the 2012 season with a winning record of 9-1 (league runner-up). I am also a professional actor with extensive credits in film, television, and theater. For a blog I write on acting and tennis (and the parallels between the two), please visit my website (listed above).
