My son enjoys his time stretching his voice out. While my son's voice hasn't dramatically improved over just a few lessons, his confidence has improved which is most important.

This product is very handy to use.

Mark is very professional and sings well himself. In just a few lessons he's had a powerful impact on my singing because of the techniques he's demonstrated.

An excellent piano teacher

I have taken beginning piano lessons with Mark, and from day one I have felt comfortable. He is very professional, punctual, and efficient. He knows what he is doing, is very kind and patient in the process. He shares his shortcuts and tips to make each lesson the best possible.

About Kevin

I'm a small town, Wyoming native and ventured to Boston, MA, where I received my bachelor of Fine Arts at the world renown Berklee College of Music. At Berklee, I studied vocal performance, songwriting and music business and became one of the premier vocalists on campus, regularly singing in the prestigious "Singer's Showcase" each year.

Since re-locating to the Southern California area, I've been sharing what I've learned during my career with students, performing in numerous musicals, venues and vocal groups, as well as honing my craft as a singer/songwriter.

Very professional and patient

Ms Olsen has been giving my daughter piano lessons for a year. She comes to our home and is very professional, timely and patient. My daughter has made great progression with her piano, she looks forward to her lessons and practices without me having to remind her. It's so convenient that she comes to our house, and she communicate with me . I would highly recommend her.

Voice Has Never Been Better

In my now four years with her, Ms. Olsen has been an amazing, kind, and awesome teacher to have and work with. If it wasn't for her, my voice wouldn't sound as beautiful as it would have sounded without her teaching me. Going from classical songs to Italian songs to now modern/pop songs, my voice has gone through many different techniques to help my singing become better, which it has. Overall, I have learned a bunch from Ms. Olsen and I wouldn't want a different teacher either way. I am really happy my mother asked me if I wanted to take voice lesson. Thank you Ms. Olsen! :)

A shining star

Cymbaline Olsen is a shining star. Her talent and energy is boundless. Her ability to calmly listen, to sculpt, and to mold vocalists of all ages, ranges and abilities is second to none. Many acclaimed vocalists have minimal strengths in terms of "coaching-up" less competent vocalists. Cymbaline, however, is a natural teacher. She is a rare talent in that regard. Cymbaline's strength is teaching and performance. Her expertise in music theory, vocal phrasing and vocal scales is extraordinary. Cymbaline can teach you that Can Sing....And Yes, you will!
I highly recommend Cymbaline for your Vocal Lessons.
Dylan W. Long Beach, CA

I've been acting and teaching for about twenty years. Acting is about getting to the core of a character and I can help you achieve this. Through scene study, monologues, improvisation, and other techniques, I can teach you the art of displaying honesty on the stage or film.

About Dylan

I fell in love with acting in 1994 and have been doing it ever since. I received a Bachelor's Degree in Theater with an emphasis on Performance from California State University Long Beach. After that I've performed with Shakespeare by the Sea, The Long Beach Shakespeare Company, and East L.A. Classic Theater. Also, I have worked with San Dionisio Sa America, which is a Filipino theater company that only performs in old fashioned Tagalog. During college I started script writing and later produced several short films and two television shows. I've worked with several after school programs specializing in education. I was a substitute teacher for several years before becoming a 7th grade English teacher.

"Acting is about honesty. If you can fake that, you've got it made!" For children and beginners we'll learn body and vocal warm-ups, short monologues and memorization techniques, and exploring all the fun stuff our bodies are capable of. After that we move into the basics of truth telling, touching on Stanislavsky and Meisner techniques. If and when your foundation is solid, we'll sharpen your toolbox, your audition technique, and talk shop about college, casting, agents, and performing for the camera.

About Morgan

Hi! My name is Morgan M. and I have been acting for 18 years, with the last 7 years as a professional member of SAG-AFTRA. I've studied in academic and professional settings, performed in theater, musical theater, film, television, and commercials, and worked with children as young as 7 to begin forming the foundational approach to acting that can be used both on stage and off. I love acting because I love to laugh, play, and just have lots and lots of fun!!
