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
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 have been working with Sophia for a year. Previous to my lessons with her, I had never taken voice other than choir as a high school class. I absolutely loved working with her! I feel like my music preference and her method really worked together swimmingly. (I am training musical theater songs)She taught me things I could do on my own (and these are things I still do everyday!) The amount my vocal range and confidence has changed in the past year is AMAZING and I can only thank her for the tools she gave me to become a better vocalist. I 100% recommend her if you are looking for someone who really cares about your voice AND you!
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
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!
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
Rosalie Tenseth always offers on-the-nose feedback, and she sets you up for success walking into the audition room. I feel 100% more confident in my performance after I've coached with her!
If you in need of an acting teacher or a mentor, Susan is the one ! Professional and experienced. Thank you Susan, Zdeni V.
I was looking to learn some hip hop dancing techniques, but couldn't travel too far from home. Fortunately, Kara Edwards was right around the corner and consistently kept in contact with me via Thumbtack until I arrived for my first lesson. Kara is an excellent instructor! She is exceptionally kind and taught at a pace I was comfortable with. I learned essential hip hop techniques in the first few minutes that would improve my moves. After completing the first portion to a dance routine, we concluded our first session and Kara gave some great recommendations. I enjoyed my session very much and plan to continue dancing with Kara. Thanks to Thumbtack I am on my way to dancing into a happier me.
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!!!
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 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!!
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 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.
