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 believe in customizing every lesson to be unique for my students in a way that will serve their individual needs. I teach with patience and encouragement and believe that students prosper and improve much more from a positive experience. My lessons are intended to be fun and influential in a positive light that can lead to a rewarding career, hobby, or just for personal enjoyment!

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 ...

I was a casting director for many years and cast such films as SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION, AIR FORCE ONE and the HIT CHILDREN'S film, MATILDA. My specialty was working with young people and I had my own children's summer program, KID PLAY. Whether your child is auditioning for a role, school interview, scholarship or college interview, I am the BEST as what I do and have a 100% success rate.

About Zeffin Quinn

♪ If you want to...

1) Build a vocal technique that will not fail you
2) Have piece of mind that the SOUND you want to come out of your mouth WILL come out
3) Know that you are using your own 100% authentic sound

...then you have found the right teacher!

♪ ♪ ♪ LESSON DETAILS ♪ ♪ ♪
Most teachers "vocalize" or "warm you up" for 5 or 10 minutes and then the lesson is spent just singing through songs with no real emphasis on how to execute awe-inspiring and healthy singing.

Working with me is a truly distinctive experience, much like a workout with a trainer (Don't laugh because I'm a little over weight!). We will spend the hour working on very physical and specific exercises to build a comprehensive technique that will support ...

Studying with Zeffin is a true joy and and creatively inspiring experience. Learning from such a gifted and experienced singer/actor who really knows the demands and expectations of having a high profile operatic career is an invaluable experience. With the positive environment he provides through his uniquely original feedback, I feel I can push myself and explore the music I am singing without thoughts of self-consciousness or doubt that I have been struggling with in the past.Due to his immense enthusiasm about singing and acting Zeffin has been instrumental in helping me break old habits and build confidence. It's been a wonderful year and I heartily recommend Zeffin for any student interested in growing as a performer, artist and musician.

Zeffin helped me change my voice and performance style completely for the better! I had been studying musical theatre and operatic singing for nearly a decade when I met him and I learned more about my voice in the first month of lessons with him than I did in the years prior. He has an enthusiasm and passion for singing that is infectious and apparent in all of his students. And his way of explaining vocal technique is simple and easy to understand even for a beginner. If you're serious about singing and improving your voice, then Zeffin is a great choice for a teacher!

Classical Voice · In studio
Coming from a very unsuccessful experience with a previous voice teacher, Zeffin put me right, right away. Over the three years I have spent studying with him, I have felt my voice grow and become more secure in itself. Zeffin's technique teaches to play on the intricate connections between voice, body, mind, and sound. Now that I understand the physicality involved in singing properly, I know I'll never go back to my "old ways." It's strange to say, but I feel physically stronger and healthier after every lesson. As a guy and classical singer, I feel Zeffin's instruction is perfect for me. I've found Zeffin to be an incredible mentor and role model, and I know I'll have trouble trusting anyone else to achieve in me what he has. If I ever leave Zeffin, I might as well give up singing all together!

Marcella B. Burbank, CA

All levels. Beginers are my favorite because I can help them in all aspects of thier life, It's so clear the direct line with early communication skill and academic proficiency! I love kids, young adults and all ages. It's very rewarding to see the technique never fail! I have also worked in the judicial system (father was a judge) working with coaching jury members and plaintiffs/ defendants on voice and articulation

About Marcella

Graduated, with honors, from the Los Angeles Theatre Academy. Attended The Juilliard School and taught privately for twelve years. Now that my children are older I can teach full-time, again! I have an excellent outline, easy to understand business acumen and a surefire way for you to gain all of the skills needed to make it in the business of marketing yourself as an actor and to supply you with the same education as you would receive from an accredited university or theatrical education on par with a Master's Degree (at a very minimal cost). I thoroughly enjoy what I do and I give it my all. You will excel and I’ve yet to fail with even the most beginning students (my favorite). I made my living as a working actor for many years and still write, direct and perform whenever I ...

Marcella is such a wealth of information! I cannot tell you how well worth it training with her has been. I have gone on to The American Academy of Dramatic Arts and she was the sole person responsible for helping me with my audition. Her "cold reading" technique is so easy and it lands me every role I audition for! HIGHLY recommend her. And, she is so very sweet and smart. Thanks Marcella!!!!!
Ash A. Los Angeles, CA

I have been teaching acting for five years.

Self awareness is paramount for my students. If you cannot be in the present then you have no truth. Students learn how to drop their minds, how to recognize emotions inside on a deeper level, and the importance of powerful storytelling, plus they learn how easy communicating is once fears and stresses are eliminated.

I recommend 12 classes for highest benefit, though if coaching for one event is what you need I can happily help there as well.

About Ash

Hi :) I'm Ash and I look forward to hearing about your goals!

Self awareness is at the foundation of everything I teach. I have a varied skill set, but no matter what we work on you will receive from me powerful tools to calm your mind, to become a more effective communicator (within yourself and to the world), and to take better care in approaching and enjoying your overall wellness.

Ask me as many questions as you like- I'm here to help YOU :)

Andrew E. Valley Village, CA

Whether it's prepping for an audition, or simply honing your craft for future work, I will help you get to that next level. My philosophy is simple: As actors, we have to learn to get out of our own way. I have come in contact with so many actors in this town who overthink and over-analyze the art of acting. While it does take great discipline and work-ethic to make it as an actor, we have to get out of our heads. Once you conquer that, you're on the right road for success!

I also have a Bachelors in Theatre Arts from Concordia University, Irvine with an emphasis in Acting and Directing. I am currently out in LA to pursue film and voice acting, but I also have a strong passion to teach.
