Tina B. Apple Valley, CA

I began acting in community theatre when I was seventeen years old. It is something that I am absolutely passionate about. I have been fortunate enough to play some of the characters that I love; Nellie Forbush in "South Pacific"; Anita in "West Side Story"; Eliza Dolittle in "My Fair Lady" and Guinevere in "Camelot," to name a few. I have also been in two independent films.

I will be teaching two group lessons, one on Monday nights from 6:00-7:00 pm and one on Tuesday nights 7:00-8:00 pm. Monday nights will be for children and Tuesday nights for adults. I will be welcoming up to five students in each class. During my classes we will learn different acting techniques, among them improv and Stanislavski's Method.

My 30+ years of experience in community theatre and what I have learned from teachers and other actors is what I look forward to passing on to those who are as passionate about acting as I am.

About Tina

I started singing professionally at the age of fourteen. I have had leading roles in semi-professional theatre productions since I was seventeen. I have also been assistant director, musical director, choreographer, costumer and writer for many productions from West Side Story to My Fair Lady to Camelot. In the theatre I have worked with and trained children and adults of all ages. I have also conducted summer camps that were theatre workshops for children. I was a school teacher at a Charter school for eight years and I taught music and drama to children from Kindergarten to 12th grade. I have been giving voice lessons for more than twenty years. I tailor my programs based on the needs of my students. I am passionate about music and I love being able to share that with other ...

Ms. Tina is the best singing teacher in the High Desert! My daughter loves coming to her lessons, and has vastly improved. She has had 3 other singing teachers prior, but they did not teach breathing and vocal techniques. Ms. Tina coaches and critiques without being overly critical. She challenges my daughter with different genres of music, which has helped her not only widen her interests in music, but also improved her vocal abilities tremendously.
So if you're looking to sing better just for fun or for a competition, Ms. Tina will help get you there!

Best Vocal Teacher Ever!!

Ms tina is an excellent vocal coach, her ability to cover the most important aspects of vocal instruction is very impressive. My experience with her has been extremely beneficial. I had been singing 5 plus years and after taking vocal lessons with Ms.Tina I realized I was singing the wrong way and damaging my vocal cords. After working with Ms tina for a little over 1 month I was able to identify correct breathing tecniques, pronunciation, as well as being able to stay on key. Ms tina is extremely professional, patient, reliable and very passionate about helping her student's reach their goals and aspirations in music.
Any direction that my signing career goes, I would love to keep her as a vocal coach!

Jessie M. Pasadena, CA

Learn the basics for acting in a fun way! Each lesson will be modified to fit the student's personal level, from beginner to advanced. Lessons will include information on how to audition, how to find auditions, audition preparation, acting lingo, how to choose monologues, how to create an acting resume and head shot, and so much more. We will work on your monologues or anything you would like to bring in, in addition to everything listed. I teach with patience and fun because I feel that this is the key to achieving goals and inspiring a good habit of practice.

About Jessie

I fully enjoy teaching music and theater to others and spreading the art of performance, reaching out to all generations.

I teach with patience and encouragement and believe that students prosper and improve much more from a positive experience.

Every since I was a little girl, I have been devoted to the arts. When I began college, I knew that music was my path. As a music major I developed a deeper understanding of music theory, piano, voice, and theater. I received my A.A. in Music at College of the Desert and my Bachelor of ...

Excellent Acting Coach, Teacher, Trainer

I have had a great experience as a student of Mara Madison. She has a lot of industry knowledge and industry experience helping me cut through what's most important when it comes to acting for film, stage, and commercials. I feel really fortunate to be working with her and her husband Marvin.

Mara is a great teacher and coach, very encouraging, and professional. She's always prepared with lesson plans, acting activities, and handouts all customized to my level and progress in her course.

Mara is not teaching me theories, but real world experience honed from years of practicing her craft and through knowledge passed on from her parents who were entrenched in film and theater and tops in their respective industry.

Mara has helped me increase my confidence in front of audiences, become more entertaining, reduce my inhibition and shyness. You will be happy if get a chance to work with Mara. I am so glad to be learning from her.
Sara J. Redlands, CA

Whether a student is preparing a monologue for an audition or working toward incorporating acting into music performance, I can assist the student in improving his or her acting technique. Lessons would entail basic acting exercises, monologue work, and learning about play production and the audition process.

About Sara

I am a classically trained soprano who specializes in opera and art song. I also have experience with musical theatre technique, as I sang with a professional children's theatre for two years. I currently teach voice through TakeLessons and at the Community School of Music and the Arts in Redlands, CA.

In the past few years, I have participated in productions and concerts with Opera at USC (South Carolina), USC Concert Choir (South Carolina), Columbia Children's Theatre, the University of Redlands Opera Workshop, Madrigals choir (Redlands), Redlands Opera Theatre, and Songfest 2014 at the Colburn School.

I am here to help beginner-intermediate singers of all ages to improve their technique, to learn new repertoire, and to learn or improve their music-reading skills. I can ...

I have worked with Sara both on and off stage for the past year. During our Masters of Music in Vocal Performance program at the University of Redlands, Sara demonstrated professionalism, dedication to her craft as well as a true and deep knowledge of vocal technique, stage craft and performance practices. Sara treats her peers and colleges with respect, and she is kind, patient and nurturing with her students. I have the highest respect for Sara as musician and teacher, and I am confident that any student who chooses to study with her will benefit greatly and will experience consistent healthy growth as a singer.

I came into my lessons with Sara knowing that she was trained as a classical vocalist, but still wanted to find what I could learn from her in other styles. Fortunately for me, Sara actually came from a background in rock music in addition to her conservatory training. Her versatility in different genres and techniques that catered to my specific goals along with her positive attitude made her stand out as a vocal teacher. Definitely would recommend her to any serious vocalist student.
Bradley F. Moreno Valley, CA

I've been teaching acting for over 6 years and my students have gone on to use their skills in a wide variety of theatrical pursuits both on stage and on screen. Within the first few lessons you'll gain a better understanding of the art of story-telling, stage presence, movement and characterization. As time goes on you will learn how to fully develop a character and to portray the full range of human emotions. I specialize in classical theatre, musical theater and opera. I use a wide range of teaching materials including textbooks, poetry collections, classical and contemporary musical scores, as well as scripts and libretti. I provide my students with a comfortable and welcoming environment in which they can learn and grow. I am passionate about my subject and I love working with students of all ages and experience levels. I can't wait to meet you!

I teach classical vocal technique with the goal of creating independent vocalists with the skills to succeed in any genre.

Over the course of my vocal studies at the University of Redlands I had the privilege of working with two wonderful instructors: Professor Marco Schindelmann and Dr. Tosh. My junior year, however, I had a unique opportunity to take lessons with Brad, a grad student whom I sang next to in Chapel Singers. When my choral instructor Dr. Andrews first told me about the opportunity to study with Brad I was elated!

Working with Brad that year was the best decision I made. Not only did he take a particular interest in helping me grow, I really felt Brad took time to understand my voice and he really made sure to challenge in ways that I would be receptive to. Also, he is just a phenomenal singer himself with a beautiful voice, and I believe this is vital to picking a teacher.

At the time I was studying with Brad I was also reading The Free Voice: A Guide to Natural Singing by Cornelius L. Reid. If you are a vocal student and you have not read this, you are making a big mistake. But the reason I bring it up is because Brad's teaching really alined with what I was reading. Brad is living proof of the techniques I was reading about, and this was extremely beneficial to my personal growth.This book helped me understand not only my own voice, but the reasons Brad is such an amazing, intuitive teacher.

If you have an opportunity to work with Brad, take it!
I know you will not be disappointed!

I have taken classical voice lessons with Bradley for the past year. Bradley is an incredibly talented vocalist, performer, and teacher. I have seen major improvements in my technique, breathing, and range. He has challenged me and made me work diligently to become a better vocalist. He is supportive and engaged and he has helped me set realistic and achievable goals. I always feel positive and encouraged after leaving a session. I highly recommend working with Brad!

I attended the University of Redlands with Bradley and was fortunate to work alongside him in Lehar's The Merry Widow. Bradley is one of the most professional and polished musicians that I worked with, and he has a great personality and sense of humor! I would highly recommend him as a voice teacher. He is very knowledgeable about singing and has a great deal of experience.
