Before my lessons with Katryna, the only singing I've allowed myself was in my shower! She is an amazing teacher, who told me how to find and control my voice. Now I am planning to record a song as an anniversary present for my husband :) So whether you have high or low skills level I'd recommend Katryna for you 100%. Not only an experience teacher, but also a great person!

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!

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!

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 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.

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

Working with Samantha was a great experience. She was prepared, and gave me very good feedback on my work. Her suggestions were great and really pushed my thinking to help my work get better. I will definitely continue a working relationship with Samantha.

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!!!

As a coach, Paul is a master at creating a full character within the minimal amount of material you are usually given for an audition. He helps you discover how the character moves, how they speak, how they carry themselves, what they want and how they are going to get it. He encourages and helps you make strong and interesting choices. With the work you do in his coaching, you walk into the room with the confidence you need to book the job.

Amy is one of the best acting coaches I have ever met and worked with. Her work is very personal and deep. She has amazing knowledge and technique but that's not it. She is sensitive and knows how to get the best out of each actor. In a different and personal way. In additon, she creates a safe and warm environment that helped me outreach my limits and discover more about myself and my abilities. She is the kind of teacher that will spend the night thinking and working on how to help you on a specific scene or big challenge. The only thing that could be better: well I wish Amy would live in the same city as me as I don't have the opportunity to see her as much as I used to. And I miss this talented coach.
