Marissa R. Sunnyside, NY

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. ...

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.

The best I have seen dealing with dialect coaching - we did lessons via Skype and she helped me not only tone down my Indian accent but also to learn a British one!
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 ...
