Alex is not only fantastic at helping someone find the perfect rep for an audition/cabaret/book/etc., he's equally fantastic at helping you craft each song to be something more than just a standard piece. His overall knowledge of music theater and the anthology of music therein is top notch.
Alex is also a great person to turn to when you find yourself stuck in the same old habits. If something is feeling stale or you aren't sure why it isn't working, Alex's keen eye for actor crutches or cheats helps you break away from the same old traps and discover something new in every piece.
Truly a wonderful person to turn to when you're looking to turn your rep upside down!!

Last Minute Save

I needed a specific song for a last minute audition. For 15 minutes before the audition Alex played it for me and offered some ideas and different choices I could make. Not only did it help me connect with the piece but it also helped me vocally. The following day I went to an audition and booked the job with just one fifteen minute session.

I think what is most important to me, especially as a dancer, is that he provides a very comfortable environment where I'm not afraid to explore or try new things. He is also able to break it down into terms and ideas that are easy for me to understand and apply.

I'll help you build your confidence and presence on stage, whether you're performing for an intimate crowd, a nerve-wracking audition, or a large crowd!

About Carol

On singing and performing: I've been a musician for a very long time and can testify that music heals on a mind, body, and soul level! Though my official performances in front of audiences started with playing woodwind instruments such as clarinet, sax, and flute from elementary school through high school in band, my primary instrument in earnest has been voice for the past 27 years.

However, my Mom told me that I have actually been singing--well, humming (a recognizable tune at that!)-- since I was nine months old. I've lead numerous solos in small ensembles and large choirs over the years, and was very involved not only with the adult music ministry at my church, but directed the children's choir as well. I'm a huge fan of arranging and creating harmonies for ...

Economics · In studio
I had the privilege of studying under Professor Carol during my time as an undergraduate at Southern Methodist University. Prof. DC is passionate not only about the subject matter she teaches, but also about student success. Her willingness to meet with students outside of lecture speaks to the kind of outstanding teacher she is. Whenever I was confused about a topic we were discussing in class, Prof. DC had the innate ability to explain the material in a way that quickly made sense! While I originally took her introductory economics courses as a requirement for my business major, she inspired me to further explore the field by pursuing a minor. Any student would be lucky to learn under Prof. DC as she really makes a difference!!

Thomas S. Richardson, TX

I've been playing drums live over 20 years, and I'll share everything I've learning from that experience.

About Thomas

Hello, I'™m Thomas, but most people call me T. I started taking private drum lessons when I was 6 years old from Lucy Flohr. Ms. Lucy was one of the most influential and important people in my development not only as a drummer but in life as well (she's the lady in my profile picture). I met her at 6, and we'™re still friends 30 years later.
After Lucy I started lessons with professors at UNT (which in those days was NTSU). My glam band, Skin Deep, was getting major record deal offers, but it was 1992 when grunge took over. So under guidance of our attorney we didn'™t sign any offers. With my high hopes deflated and a musically defeated heart I had to make a change. So instead of going to UNT to study music which I had been being groomed to do, I chose to ...

Fantastic Teacher for Kids

My 8 year old son has been taking drum lessons from Thomas for about 4 months and he very much enjoys it. What I really like about the lessons is that Thomas custom designs the next lesson based on how the student is performing in the current lesson. His homework assignments are very detailed which is great because I, as well as my son, know what he should be practicing during the week. I can definitely see a big improvement since my son started and I have no doubts he is getting a solid foundation in drums as well as music theory. Thomas is a super nice guy and very patient which makes him fantastic for kids. My wife is a music educator and she is just as impressed with Thomas as I am. We highly recommend him.

Awesome teacher

I have been taking lessons from Thomas for about 4 months. I knew nothing about drums when I started. I have learned so much so fast. T's teaching style is flexible and he is able to adjust the way he explains things so I understand. I have so many light bulb moments in the lesson and when I am practicing at home. He is professional and a lot of fun. My drum lesson is one of the highlights of my week. T is not only teaching me how to play the drums, but how to not be so hard on myself. We laugh a lot and I always leave feeling great about my lesson and that I have accomplished something. I am an adult student and would recommend him for any adult or kid. I can see how young people would relate to him as well. He is laid back, but very professional and knows his stuff. I have recently moved 30 minutes away from him, but will continue to make the drive because he is awesome and worth the drive.

TakeLessons has exceeded my initial expectations, not only the program itself, but the expectations I held for myself.

Love TakeLessons. Love my teacher. Love his teaching method which is relatively laid back on the surface, but the dudes mind is expansive! He hits you curve balls and knows how to relate to his student(s) individually, so that it feels like this is YOUR lesson that he has crafted specifically for YOU. His subtility in regards to a method/ideology is massive! Just when I think , "Oh, ok..." then I'm like "OH! OK!" Constant light bulbs flickering, constant movement and stability in his methods. It's like a friend teaching you professionally to a point, and yet it's clear that he's the teacher, you're the student. After each session I feel like I can do this, and that it's not just a pipe dream and that this teacher enjoys what he does and the sessions we have and wants to see me excel and that in & of itself is not only motivational but inspiring.

Gaily has helped me so much

Gaily is an amazing violinist. She is very flexible and tells me what I need to know in order to improve. When I get a little bored with my practice drills, we work on fun music that I love to play.

I have noticed a huge difference in my playing since taking lessons from her. I play more in tune and with more confidence. You should definitely take lessons from Gaily.
