Michael is a phenomenal teacher through and through. He has guided me in delving into characters and helped me to understand the unique nuances that come with acting. Michael has not only taught me about the "How?" of acting but also the "Why?". He has made me think about acting in a way that really puts myself and my own experiences in the role of the character. This acting training has also played a role in teaching the vocal aspects of musical theater. Michael has helped me in many of the technical aspects of vocal technique while still integrating the acting training into it. The juxtaposition of the nuances acting training and technical vocal training is incredibly unique and makes Michael a teacher any student in the performing arts should want.

I had the pleasure of working with James as an instructor at Wayne State University for the last 3 years. His understanding of text, Objectives as an actor and putting them into use on the stage were impeccable. He is tenacious a in a quest to be the best actor he can be, and is always prepared. i found that he always brought a wealth of ideas to the table and his acting style was very clean and natural.

My 10 year old daughter has been taking singing lessons from Paul for the past 2 years, (recently added guitar lessons) -- I cannot even put into words how awesome he is as an teacher. Just the right amount of nurturing, positive encouragement and fun. And he comes with years and years of "in the business" experience, so his advice really carries weight. It's a bit of a drive from where we are to get to him, but we cannot even imagine going to anyone else. Daughter literally looks forward to each lesson (this is the same person that groans every morning about school, just to give some context). Worth the drive. Worth the cost.

Carly is an excellent acting coach. She has provided valuable information about the entertainment industry from the very first lesson. She is patient, attentive, and non-judgemental. Each lesson, I walk away feeling I have progressed. She is clearly experienced as a director and educator, and I am especially impressed with her easy going but professional manner. She is helping me create on an acting reel for marketing purposes, and I am pleased with her detailed attention to the project. I am lucky to be working with her.

My daughter has been taking classes in acting at the West Chester Studio for several years. The quality of the teaching far surpasses anything else she has been involved in to date. Therese Waldon-Murphy is an excellent acting teacher. She has the experience and knowledge that I trust will deliver just what my daughter needs in this business.

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!!!

Jake Stamatis is an excellent instructor for voice lessons. Since day 1, He is able to adjust his instructions to his students to where they would benefit the student the most. He has helped me find comfort in singing with my voice and helping me differentiate between singing and screaming. I have been taking lessons from Stamatis for several months and I can say that I have improved dramatically since my first lesson with Stamatis. It was inconceivable for me to think that I could ever have vibrato, but after rigorous training during and in my own time, I am understanding how to use vibrato through the use of breath. I honestly do not think that I would have gotten this far without the help of Stamatis. I did not think that I would be comfortable with my singing voice, but Stamatis has largely affected my perspective. Also, he's a jokester so beware for his jokes. Overall, I enjoy having Stamatis as my instructor.

    Robert Bradshaw is not only the best violin instructor I've ever met but he's also one of the best men I have ever met. Mr. Bradshaw owns his own Haddonfield business in which he is surrounded by an extremely competent staff, which is filled with other instructors teaching instruments such as cello, violin, piano and more. Whether you are a parent interested in having your child learn an instrument or an adult who would like to learn an instrument or enhance your skills, you can't go wrong with Maestro Studios. Bradshaw stands out above all other music instructors because of his passion, enthusiasm and love for his job. You or your child's specific schedule or musical needs will be met. And to keep your interest in you or your child's instrument, Rob Bradshaw puts on great recitals and concerts and you or your child can even be part of the the pit orchestra for the local theater academy's shows. Reasonably priced lessons, great instructors, and incredible experiences.
