Amber J.

Englewood, CO

I have a enjoyed Acting since preparing and performing many roles in high school and college. As I prepared for my Masters Degree performance and then opening in Berlin Germany I learned many acting skills that helped me reach my goals.
I have many students that study acting to help them express emotion in their everyday life.

About Amber

Growing up in Denver, I had a huge desire for singing and performing. By age 14, I was taking weekly singing & piano lessons, was acting constantly in local productions-many times getting the lead role.
Some of the productions I acted in: The Wizard of Oz (Dorothy), Camelot, Anything Goes (Reno Sweeney), How to Succeed in Business (Smitty), Carousel, Oklahoma, Les Miserables, and Oliver (Nancy.)
I received a 4-year scholarship to the Conservatory of Music in Stockton, CA. at the University of the Pacific. Upon graduation, I entered graduate school at the University of North Texas to con
tinue my singing and piano studies, along with music theory, history, and musical video production.
Upon graduating UNT, I was chosen among 200 performing arts majors to be the featured soloist at the UNT commencement ceremonies. This led to an offer to tour Italy with the Rome Festival Orchestra. For the next two summers I performed in Copenhagen, Istanbul, Rome and Berlin with the Berlin Philharmonic.

*** Lesson Details ***
My students progress VERY quickly! As a teacher, I can easily identify my students’ strengths and weaknesses, and plan an individualized study course. I will instill a solid set of production skills that will easily serve ANY style of music you choose (from rock to opera.)
I will make for you a personalized recording for you to practice with daily. We will also work on songs you LOVE!
My students will have performance opportunities every 3 months. I will prepare you for college entrance auditions, TV contests, and television appearances. My students make extraordinary progress-I want you to become one of them!

As an older person who never had ballet lesson, this could have been a very intimidating experience but Teresa was very patient and thoughtful about her instruction. She really wanted to be certain I understood the terms, technique and overall format of ballet. A great experience! I look forward to my next lesson!

Taylor R.

Golden, CO

I focus on rehearsal technique as well as basic principles of acting. However, if a student would like more advanced study such as accent work, methodology, etc., I specialize in those areas as well. This course requires a large space; for online courses, the student must be able to perform in front of a webcam.

About Taylor

**Biography**

Taylor is a student at the University of Colorado Denver with a declared Bachelor's in Music Business.

As a musician, Taylor has performed with many famous musicians and conductors; notable names include Mark Wood (founder of the Trans-Siberian Orchestra), Wes Kenney (lead conductor of the Colorado State University Symphony Orchestra), and Randy Sabien (famous jazz violinist). He studied Viola privately during high school at the University of Denver under the instruction of champion fiddler and musical saw player Caroline McCaskey, who has been a guest performer for the Col
orado Symphony Orchestra. Taylor also studied music theory and piano privately with famous Ukrainian pianist and music historian Olga Dashevskaya at Red Rocks Community College. Recently, Taylor has studied Viola under Katherine Thayer, concert master of the Denver Philharmonic.

During early 2016, Taylor traveled to Derry, Northern Ireland to study under Liz Doherty, one of the best Irish fiddlers in the world. While there, Taylor also received brief training from Troy MacGillivray, a Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Award recipient. He also performed at the 2016 Derry International Irish Music Festival with famous pub session players.

Taylor is currently the 2nd Chair Violist for the Denver Pops Orchestra, one of the largest professional orchestras in the Denver Metro area.

Taylor was also a notable actor during his time in high school. He performed at state competitions, including the Colorado State Thespian Conference and the Jefferson County Theatre Festival, where he received some the highest scores; 4/5 Superior ratings from nationally acclaimed judges, for his monologue and scene work.

**Lesson Methods**

Although lessons follow a basic curriculum, the lesson is always about what the student desires to accomplish. For example, music students are ALWAYS allowed to pick their own performance repertoire to work on. Lessons are always focused on encouragement, assistance, and the self-success & determination of the student.

Dana G.

Denver, CO

Students can expect fun and rigorous acting lessons designed around their goals. I am a nurturing teacher, so shy students should have no fear! We will work with the three major acting tools: our voices, bodies and imaginations.

About Dana

Hello. I am a Colorado State and New York State-certified drama teacher. I moved to Denver recently, and I am looking for students that want to learn stage and/or film acting and audition preparation.

I attended Vanderbilt University in Nashville, TN, and received my B.A. in Theatre and Psychology. I earned my Master's degree in Educational Theatre from New York University in New York, New York.

I am a nurturing and high-energy teacher, and I understand different students learn differently. Shy students, you will feel comfortable, I promise!

I have worked as a professional actor in th
e theater as well as film. I am a member of the Screen Actors Guild. I have an artistic resume that I am happy to share upon request.

I love teaching acting to students that want to learn. I teach all aspects of performing: stage acting, film acting, scene study, audition preparation, voice work, etc.

I am very excited to teach in Denver!

Dana does an excellent job of tailoring instruction to specifically address my daughter's needs. She looks for opportunities to include my daughter in activities that she personally works on, and goes above and beyond to help her prepare to meet the goals my daughter has set. She is reliable and follows through with all things she says she's going to do!

Stacey R.

Denver, CO

I have been a professional actor for 10 years. From my lessons, you can expect to break down barriers to authenticity and get real in your craft. I will tailor the lessons to your goals, incorporating the skills I've learned, honed, and taught. Take your craft to a new level, or if you're a beginner, start off right. The best way to break a bad habit is to avoid it altogether!

About Stacey

I am a lifelong student of many subjects. My approach to teaching is one of patience and enthusiasm. I do my best to understand the student's learning style and teach accordingly.
I have been a professional actor, model, and singer for 10 years. I specialize in on-camera acting for TV commercials, industrial video, and host. Most of the modeling I've done is commercial print and live promotional modeling. I've taught acting to kids ages 6-17 for the past year, including on-camera auditioning, stage directions, script analysis, and business skills (headshot/resume, finding an agent, industry
terms, etc.).
My singing experience includes pop, musical theatre, and jazz. I've coached students who believed they were hopeless, and they were pleased to discover their gifts and see growth!
I am a certified yoga instructor (RYT-200) and have taught for 3 years, both group classes and privately.
I minored in French in college and tutored beginning French.
My motto: Never stop learning!

I practiced yoga at a studio where Stacey taught. I should mention I consider myself a beginner and not very yoga savy. She's an excellent teacher. Her technique is simple and easy to follow. Her classes were never the same or boring. She always introduced some new pose and made our class a fun workout. She's attentive to the variety of levels of her students. I always looked forward to yoga practice and highly recommend her!

Stacie is a fantastic yoga instructor for all ages! I have taken her classes in studio and in my home. I had her teach a class for my 11 year daughter and her cousins and they loved it! She taught them yoga while building their self esteem. If you are thinking about starting yoga, don't hesitate, Stacie is the instructor for you!
