*** Lesson Details ***
I have performed on stage, in film, and on television, and believe in helping the actor develop the best techniques for all three different domains. My Acting Students of my 3 month program (24 hours) will receive Introduction to Scene Study, Character Development, Audition Preparation, Introduction to Meisner & Stanislovski Techniques. These students will receive a 12 week Certificate of Completion. 6 month program (48 hours) includes all of the above, Intermediate Scene Study, Character Development, Audition Preparation, and Intro to Adler and Strauss Techniques. 24 Week Certificate of Completion, and a Showcase with area casting directors and producers.

I have over 10 years of vocal instruction with individuals, groups, and choirs in Pop, R&B, Country, Musical Theater & Gospel music. I have coached American Idol hopefuls and World Championship Winners! My Vocal Students will receive introduction to Speech Level Singing as made famous by Seth Riggs. They will be taught breathing techniques and learn the 3 singing voices that everyone has and how and when to use them. As a career belter that has also had extensive studies in classical training, I feel it important to teach how to utilize head, belt, and mix voices........correctly so as not to ruin your vocal ability. I will also teach vocal care and how to individualize vocal styling; finding your own unique voice and sound.

Keyboard and a relaxed homey atmosphere.

*** Specialties ***
Acting: I teach basic characterization through both Meisner & Stanislovsky introduction while referencing others like Adler and Strauss. I delight in helping the actor develop their own means of character development. Vocals: I help the vocalist analyze their own individual style and help them develop breathing techniques, experiment with various tonal interpretations, and helping them to strengthen their vocal control.

Robyn J. Knoxville, TN

Subjects Taught

Music Theory, Viola, Violin

About Me

I have been playing violin and viola for over 20 years. I hold a Bachelor's and Master's degree in music and teach at a local community college. I have taught children, teens, and adults; both beginners and continuing students. I learn where the student is skill-wise and we go from there. I also ask the student what his/her goals are, so that we have a set to-do list to work with.

*** Lesson Details ***
We will work at your pace--I will push you, but I am aware that everyone works at a different speed. I will learn that speed and work with you accordingly. I expect students to practice and do their best, but I also understand that life sometimes gets in the way. After a few months, you will know the basics of the instrument and be able to play recognizable tunes for your family and friends!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Music room/office with seating for parents in living room.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide no equipment. My students should have an instrument with all accessories (bow, case, shoulder rest) and also a music stand.

*** Lesson Details ***
If you are interested in improving your singing as a soloist in either popular or classical music, just looking to improve your hymn singing, or a complete beginner, I can help you. I can also coach you in a musical performance or help you to improve your speaking voice. I teach with enthusiasm and always find that encouragement and constructive criticism works best. A large part of a successful performance is confidence. I have found real joy in singing and in music and I like to share that through performing and teaching.

When we begin, I find it important to get to know each other and to spend some time talking about why you chose to study and what you hope to learn. Then we can vocalize and get a since of your voice. I’d also like you to bring a song you can sing for me. If you have a recording of the accompaniment, that would be preferable. I will provide a CD player and will use a piano or a keyboard to work with you. I stress the importance of practice in strengthening a person’s voice.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Electronic keyboard

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in breath support, diction, easy production and beautiful tone.
