Highly recommend

My daughter loves taking lessons with Athena. She takes the lessons seriously and expects the same of her students. My daughter is learning a lot and loving it. Athena has helped her feel positive about piano and motivated to practice and learn.
Laura K. New York, NY

My philosophy is that good actors do not "act", but "do" - the key to an effective portrayal of a character is to figure out what he or she wants, and get it!

About Laura

Music is definitely the universal language, and there isn't a genre I don't love; it's important to me that that aspect be brought to lessons, as well! From humble New Jersey beginnings to an opera career, I've seen the power of what music can do!

Whether it's opera, musical theater, folk, rock, or just public speaking, anything YOU love to do, I would love to teach you! Having taught all ages and levels, from first graders to adults, from someone who's never sung a note in his or her life to semi-professionals, I cater my lessons to what YOU as a student need and are interested in.

Lessons shouldn't be a chore - I like to foster an environment you look forward to being a part of! I also think that music, like any sport, is hard work, and takes ...

Awesome teacher! patient, knowledgeable, & creative

I'm a complete beginner, could barely sing in tune. I decided to take lessons for fun. but whoa was i surprised at the progress I've made with Laura in just a few short months. She has catered to my individual needs, and has made my learning experience fun. She works at my pace so i never feel rushed or bored. She teaches singing lessons in a way anyone can understand. Her background in opera means she can sing and teach her students amazing vocal range. She taught me anything is possible with hard work and dedication! I've learned so much with her, it's hard to put it all in a short review. Pick her and you won't be disappointed! Thank you Laura!

Great teacher

Laura is a really good and nice teacher. She is patient to answer all of my questions.I improved a lot in a short period of time with her tips on singing. She's not only just teach you how to sing, she also talks some histories of music and different examples or even her experiences to me. She can make an exercise into a fun way to do. I learned a lot from her and I gain more confident on singing. I'm always looking forward to take lessons with her. She's such a great singer and vocal coach!! Laura is a great choice for those of you who want to learn singing in a comfortable, no pressure and fun environment. ^_^

Anthony H. Long Island City, NY

Are you planning on auditioning for a Broadway play, or just want to be more confident with public speaking? I'll have you comfortable doing classical text to modern comedy.

About Anthony

My life revolves around music in all of its forms. I have studied piano since the age of 6 while singing ever since I knew how to make sound. Throughout my lifetime, I have been taught by some of the most influential teachers, and it is my goal to become one in your lifetime.

I began participating in theater at an early age. Once In high school, I had my first job as a Drama Teacher at Saltworks Young Actors Studio where I taught Improvisation, Monologues and Musical Theater to students ages 6 through 16.

I went to Point Park University where I received a BA in Musical Theater in 2006. Throughout College, I was also teaching voice and piano lessons.

As an actor, I have enjoyed many successes. In 2007, I joined the NY Public Theater’s three night, 40th anniversary ...

Whether you are: just getting into acting, auditioning for conservatory, a young filmmaker, taping with networks, or screen testing I and confident I can help.
My acting resume, and teaching resume are available upon request.

Joe is a true gem!
I have been going to him for coaching, off and on, for a few years now and overtime I see my work improve by leaps and bounds. He is always patient and genuine with his coaching and has a way of putting his student at ease. His personal experience with the craft means that he really knows how to relate to actors and bring out the best in their performance. If you can get on his roster of clients DO IT!

Joe has coached me on a number of theater and on camera auditions. When working with him I've found that he is able to effectively communicate in a way that produces incredible results immediately in the moment. I've always left a session with bolder choices in the scenes/monologues, and a sense of spontaneity and confidence. AND I've booked two shows from auditions that Joe has helped coach me on in the past year and a half! I recommend him highly to anyone who is looking for an acting coach!

As a novice to the acting world, Joseph truly helped me find the confidence and balance I needed to break away from my fears and insecurities. Incredibly patience, he guided me through all the steps of how to become a successful actor while still managing to find ways to challenge my boundaries and perceptions. He is extremely knowledgeable in the art of stage and has a keen understanding of film. If you are looking for an instructor that can help you not only work a live audience but handle being in front and behind a camera, I would truly recommend taking a couple of sessions with him. He will teach you all the ins and outs of the acting industry and help better your techniques in such areas as stage movement, vocals, text interpretation, lighting, editing, cameras, and so much more. I can honestly say that after working with Joe, I am a much more secure actress and feel successful in my endeavors.
Eric G. New York, NY

I have been coaching and directing productions for over 20 years. I have a studio set up in my home to avoid the claustrophobic nature of a "closet" studio in midtown to coach and assist people with bettering their auditions and fleshing out songs and materials so nothing new is presented at an audition.

About Eric

I am a stage director, pianist and acting coach. I can prep nearly anyone to make an audition more successful and have sat through countless auditions for musical theatre and opera. I think everyone needs a second opinion, or third, or fourth on how their auditions look and sound and, most importantly, HONEST advice on what to do better.
