I will help you select and prepare a monologue so that it is audition ready.

About Marissa

I am a professional vocalist with a broad range of experience. With a Bachelor of Music (Musical Theater) from Belmont University I am more than qualified to teach with a well supported vocal foundation.

As a true lover of music and arts, I encourage my students to sing as much as possible! My confident and exciting approach to singing brings out the best in my students, which translates beautifully to real life situations.

*** Lesson Details ***
Each person is different in nature and each performer has a personal style and goal. My goal is to get to know what kind of voice and style each student desires, and base the curriculum off of that knowledge.

A basic lesson looks like this:
5 minutes of breathing exercises
10-25 minutes of vocal technique exercises (e.g. ...

Have experience teaching beginning to intermediate actors and actresses

About Danielle

I have been taking the world by surprise since the age of 4. I began studying at Queens College at 6 years old and was a recital pianist by the age of 12. I was a consumer of music, from the Music Theory lessons on Saturdays, piano lessons on Thursdays and voice lessons on Saturday afternoons, my life was filled with music.

It is to no one's surprise that I completed my first demo at the age of 13 and was performing for Queens Colleges audiences at 14. I went on the rank high in the NYSSMA series in both piano and voice. I also went on to study music in college and began touring with gospel troupes nationally. Since then I has done many workshops, Master Classes, tour dates, theatre shows etc. Too many to date. I am a sought after teacher for voice, piano and broadway singing. I ...

Danielle is the most professional instructor I have worked with in a long time. Going way beyond musical instruction, of which she is a master. She also listened carefully to my needs and custom develops her approach so I could meet my goal. I am an aspiring public speaker and minister in training and she helped me prepare for my Inaugural Sermon. We did warm ups, opened up my vocal range, determined what my rage was. Improved my breathing techniques and gave me plenty to do on my own, not holding back on what it will take to be successful. She even helped me edit my sermons to meet my time requirements once I had gotten hold of her techniques. Danielle maximizes your time to your advantage and is an Awesome Instructor that I would highly recommend!
Liza M. New York, NY

Coaching: monologues, auditions, character work for a role in a show

About Liza

I have been professionally singing and taking voice lessons since the age of 9! I went through various styles in my love and performance of music, starting with the Beatles, Aretha Franklin and all of Motown, Jazz (Ella Fitzgerald), R&B, and Classical/Opera (starting when I was in high school and attending Interlochen Arts Camp)...

Having received a Bachelor's of Music in Voice (Music Theatre Performance) from NYU, I stayed in NYC after graduation performing in musical theatre and theatre, mostly in the city.

In 2009, I decided to apply to the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts, with the intent to broaden my range of skill and opportunity as a performer, but also with the intention to teach, with the higher degree strengthening this possibility. I began to teach ...

My daughter had a wonderful experience working with Liza. At 10 years old, with no prior acting experience, Liza helped her prepare for a monologue for a school audition. She was patient and fun and exposed her to a variety of great monologue options. Liza has a really sweet way of making kids feel special and proud and I would highly recommend her as an acting/singing coach!

Liza is a fantastic teacher! I hadn't sung in a long time and was nervous to get back into it. Liza not only made me feel very comfortable at my first lesson, but also made it a ton of fun! During future sessions she was also very good at helping me develop goals and determine what I wanted to accomplish during my lessons. When I had a chance to sing in front of people, Liza was incredibly supportive and quick to respond to any questions I had over email to help me prepare outside of lessons as well.

Liza is an incredibly dedicated voice teacher and is extremely knowledgeable. In just the first few lessons, the corrections she gave me helped me improve my vocal range, strength, and technique. I would definitely recommend Liza as a teacher!

Excellent Vocal Coach. Highly recommended.

I have been taking weekly lessons with Liza for over a year and would highly recommend her. I looked for a vocal coach after my first club gig as a front-woman for a rock band. Apparently I was not using my voice correctly as I was extremely hoarse following the performance. Liza taught me how to breath, stand & 'place' my voice (be aware of all of the muscles that create one's speaking & singing voice). Using her methodology, I am able to get through a full set without any vocal strain. She is a good communicator and a pleasure to work with. Thanks Liza!

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.

Dominique S. Astoria, NY

Although I spend most of my time teaching Piano or Singing, Acting was my first love and something I've been doing the longest.
Piano and Singing are things that I wasn't necessarily the best at growing up and had to learn, but Acting was always a very strong suit for me.
Between high school and college - I have 8 years of formal training at full time acting conservatories. This doesn't include the countless classes I've taken before and since then. I've been the lead in a national tour, an independent film, 3 commercials, and countless regional productions across the country. I have a BFA in Musical Theater with a concentration in Directing.
Specific areas that I have been trained in include On Camera Work, Monologues, Movement, Commedia and Masks, Meisner, Classical, Scene Study, Improv, Playwriting and Directing.
I have experience writing and directing plays. I've taught classes in a group setting and privately. I also do a lot of college prep for high school seniors. I love ...

About Alexandra

While my resume is attached, I'd love to tell you a little about myself. My education is in Theater from both Boston University and The London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts. This includes extensive training in acting, directing, writing, Meisner, Alexander Technique, production, dance, and entertainment history. After moving to New York, I quickly learned that my passions lay more in teaching performing arts rather than performing myself.

Teaching and helping others find tap into their creativity is a long rooted passion of mine. It began in Middle and High School when I was asked to choreograph the musicals in my town. I loved the challenge of visualizing a performance piece and explaining it to others. Witnessing a young person finally succeed in being free with their ...
