Lar rocks!

I was a bit afraid of using an online company but this experience has been terrific from using the 800 number to great selection of teachers....We have been impressed and totally satisfied with all Lar has done with teaching. We did not know anything about singing and she taught my child controlled breathing, some vibrato, how to use her falsetto, identify her range, etc. And she is very friendly and personable! She has been easy to communicate to and has been willing to work with us and our crazy schedules due to school academics and activities.... We would highly recommend her....

Extraordinary acting/voice coach & mentor!!!

What can we say...Ms. Lar'Juanette is amazing! My 5 year old daughter has been taking acting/singing lessons for a few months now & I'm absolutely amazed at how far along she has come. Ms. Lar'Juanette has brought out confidence & passion for the arts from my little one. Lar'Juanette is extremely professional, works great with children, patient, passionate, down-to-earth, always happy, & has the most amazing spirit about her! She has built a strong foundation for my daughter by starting with the basics of acting/singing, character building, confidence building, working with emotions, & presentation. There's so much more she has taught that I can go on for days! As a parent she has prepared me when it comes to "the business" & what to expect. I'm truly greatful for her guidance & support. With her experience you can't find a better teacher in town. We were lucky to have chosen Ms. Lar'Juanette as a teacher & my daughter can't get enough of her!

About Crystal

Crystal brings a lifetime’s experience of professional musicianship to each of her lessons. Born into a family of musicians, she sang her first solo at age 2. She also benefits her students with an extraordinarily diverse musical background, having worked as a vocalist in gospel, country, musical theater, jazz, classical, rock, pop and soul styles. Her performing career has taken her from L.A. church meetings to London’s Houses of Parliament. Crystal hails originally from Los Angeles, CA - where her musical parents gave her a head start by including her in the family business the moment she was able to contribute. She went on to study classical voice, piano and music theory at The Boston Conservatory of Music. After concluding her studies in London, she returned home and began working ...

Amazing singng instructor

Crystal has increased my daughter’s self-esteem and expressiveness through song. My daughter is now writing her own poetry and song lyrics, as well as being able to combat her once shyness quality. She loves to perform in front of others now and has a confidence level that amazes me, especially now that she is going into those “teen” years. I think a lot of thanks needs to go to Crystal, for assisting my daughter in reaching her current creative level!

Great piano instructor

Crystal is an amazing piano instructor. She is patient, understanding and dedicated. My daughter has learned so much from her. My daughter’s love for music has increased immensely since learning how to play the piano. This would never have been able to be accomplished without Crystal’s professional and caring teaching style.

Wonderful person and excellent instruction

I have been taking lessons from Crystal for a few months now. I took lessons from others before I moved to the area, and I have had multiple new breakthroughs with Crystal. She is great at finding the language that allows me to understand adjustments, and is very patient and understanding. I was at ease from the first moment I met her. I highly recommend her to other adults looking to get into singing of any kind!
Stephanie Q. Asheville, NC

My approach to improv acting is to use acting techniques to gain self confidence in public speaking. Very good for job interviews, presentations, and sales work.

Stephanie is extraordinary!

I never gave it any thought that it would be possible to learn such a complex instrument via Skype. To find someone as professionally trained as her is very challenging in of itself, but to have someone of her caliber teach my daughter from many miles away in the comfort of our home is truly amazing! Stephanie was very patient, observant, extremely knowledgeable and a talented teacher. It is quite a luxury to have the opportunity to work with her. I'd recommend her highly. If you are hesitant to try her online lessons I would suggest you at least give it a chance; you will be pleasantly surprised.

Great piano teacher for youth or adults

I have known Stephanie Quinn for over 14 years, during which she has been my piano teacher, mentor, and friend. Her accomplishments as a professional musician--on piano and violin--are numerous and impressive in and of themselves. What distinguishes Stephanie, however, from other performers / teachers is her unique combination of competence, passion, and disciplined approach to teaching. Her studio, which includes students of all ages and levels, is unmistakable proof of that. I am extremely grateful to Stephanie for starting me on a path towards love of music, and for helping me develop the ability to share it with others.

After years of acting training in both Undergraduate and Grad School I thought I was prepped for the professional world. Unbeknownst to me, auditioning is actually a completely different skill than acting. They are related but are in no way the same. You can actually be an incredible actor who is a terrible auditioner. This is where Joe comes in--he's spent countless hours (probably close to Malcolm Gladwell's 10,000) learning the skills it takes to give not just a good, but a great and memorable audition. He can take an audition side that I'm working on and give me a completely unique take on it after seeing the script for a mere 2 minutes. His insight and creativity is uncanny, as is his ability to see holes in my game that I don't even know exist. Truthfully, every time I've had him coach me for an audition (film/TV or Theatre) I have at least gotten a callback. His ability to come up with unique and memorable ideas are enough alone to use him. I know that after he's coached me that I am nothing but prepared for what's to come. I stroll into audition rooms bursting with confidence. I cannot sing his praises enough. I feel bad for stealing his creative ideas--the ideas he comes up with for me--but hey, all the best artists steal! Use Joe!

My 6 year old daughter is pursuing an acting career and has been working on it for 1 year. Choosing Joe was the best find we could have come across!! Olivia won 1st place for her 2 person scene shortly after Joe started coaching her, and 8 weeks later auditioned for the main character of a Hollywood movie and was told by the director that she was "fantastic". He brings something to the table that I would not be without now that I have seen it work for her. He shows up to lessons with an actual camera and lights to imitate an audition and shows her on video how she did and what the camera sees. He is strict enough to keep me happy that progress is being made and that the time is used resourcefully, but is very kid friendly and Olivia loves working with him. He is patient too. I highly recommend him, although we'd like to be stingy with his time and keep him to ourselves!! :) He also brings actual Hollywood scripts for her to learn and work on (sides). He is truly fantastic!!

Joe is a true gem!
I have been going to him for coaching, off and on, for a few years now and overtime I see my work improve by leaps and bounds. He is always patient and genuine with his coaching and has a way of putting his student at ease. His personal experience with the craft means that he really knows how to relate to actors and bring out the best in their performance. If you can get on his roster of clients DO IT!

One of the things I really enjoyed about the workshops were the exercises, the engagement that I had with the other partners and other class members, and just the way that Joe prepared himself and us for the class. Everything was fresh, it was new...we learned how to work as if we were theatre students as well as for film and TV roles we sometimes really want to have. I would certainly recommend his classes! Joe is a fun teacher! He will make sure you have a great time! I highly recommend that you take his class...Joe can help you out, whether you want to act, speak in public or do modeling. He is skilled at what he does!
