Have you always wanted to try out for a part but you were too afraid? I will work with you on becoming confident in your acting abilities. As a music teacher I put on productions in school plays. I taught acting, choreographed moves, taught them their singing parts, and went over lines. I will help you with every part of the theater process of getting you a part.

About Lynzi
Hello everyone! I've been singing since the age of 3 and performing since the age of 6. I am not only an experienced music teacher with a passion for music and teaching, but an experienced performer, and songwriter. I started performing at a young age with the Columbia School of Theatrical Arts, and as I grew older I studied different techniques such as speech level singing, classical, and even techniques from Brett Manning, one of the most amazing vocal coaches today who teaches artists such as Haley Williams from Paramore. I have experience performing many styles of music, and also was a voice major in college. The students I teach will benefit from my contemporary techniques, and can learn to sing in almost any style of music they choose.

*** Lesson Details ***
Do you want to learn how to sing your favorite song just like the artist?
I can teach you the techniques! Or how about how to make a cover song your own based off of your own unique voice? We can work together to find, develop, and build the amazing qualities that you have in your voice. I will not only work on aspects of what you would like to improve on with your voice personally, but I will make an individual plan for you that will dramatically improve your voice! I will work with you individually to strengthen any weakness you may have in a fun environment. I am fun, encouraging and motivating! When asking students to do any vocal exercises, I will explain what the certain exercise does to improve your voice so that you can have the knowledge you need to be a good vocalist, and not just know how to sing properly. You will learn many things in lessons and what I teach you will vary on where you are vocally.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide a keyboard, CD, Boom box, music sheets, etc. Students do not need to provide anything.

*** Specialties ***
Speech level singing method, classical techniques, singing success, various genres including: pop, blues, contemporary, and musical theatre. I utilize the different techniques I have learned through proper classical training, but mix it with contemporary methods I have learned from speech level singing methods.

About Larry
***My Takelessons Blog Posts:***
http://takelessons.com/blog/acting-in-famous-Shakespeare-plays
http://takelessons.com/blog/how-to-have-stage-presence

My name is Larry, and I was born and raised in Chicago and now call the Phoenix, AZ metro area home. I have a Master's Degree in Education (Higher Ed. and Curriculum Development). I have a Tutoring and Educational Consulting business of my own, working with excellent education partners like Takelessons.

My tutoring business is geared towards middle, high school,and college students, and my specialization is geared in four areas:

1) The Humanities: History (U.S., European, and World), English, Literature (with a special passion for all things Shakespeare), and Social Studies (including American Government and Political Science).

2) Papers: Research papers (and how to do the
research for them), essays, creative writing - including citation & formatting.

3) Drama (the Theatre kind of drama, not life drama): Acting, directing, staging, analysis, including Shakespeare.

4) Test Prep: ACT, SAT, PSAT, ISEE, TACHS

***My Promise to You***

I will treat you like an individual - that means that we'll find out how YOU learn best, and we'll work that way. I don't teach memorization. I teach by asking and answering questions, as well as providing information.

***My Expectation of You***

That you will come with an open mind, come with questions, and a willingness to learn and have fun.

***Lesson Details***

*The Humanities*
The reason so many people go screaming into the night when confronted with lessons in things like history, or government, or English for that matter, are all the names and dates to memorize. I don't teach that way. We begin with things you want (or need) to know. From there, we cover how those things affected other things, It's a huge world out there, and how we got here from where we started is a wonderful and complicated trip. History doesn't happen in a vacuum, and we learn who we are by knowing where we come from.

*Papers*
Obviously I won't write your paper for you, but I will show you how and where to start your research (and how to sort it as well). I will also proof-read for grammar and/or organizational errors and show you how to structure it in general terms.

*Drama*
I have acted, I have directed. From the community to professional levels. We will talk about character creation, about staging, about working with your director as well as your fellow actors. We will mostly brainstorm, and you will be able to experiment in vision as well as technique.

Keith is fantastic! He expects the highest level of preparation and performance from me at all my lessons and thus pushes me to be a better performer every time. He tailors my lessons to exactly what I need - specific work for upcoming auditions as well as more general work to expand my repertoire. His lessons are also not not limited singing coaching - he also provides coaching in acting and movement. I feel like I have presented some of my best work to auditors as a result of working with Keith! And he does all this in the friendliest manner possible so that my lessons are always a great combination of fun, hard work, and inspiration.

Keith is a knowledgeable and great teacher. He will let you feel comfortable at singing and doing all the practices and make you realize what the correct postures and things needed to make you feel confident. Also, he is pretty easy-going with scheduling and just let him know in advance and he will reschedule the class for you. Definitely recommended.

Diana is absolutely fabulous! I have worked with her in a classroom environment as well as one on one and I can honestly say they have been some of the most productive/supportive experiences training in my life! Diana is laid back yet encouraging - I never feel like I am being judged or must do something a certain way to appease her (which unfortunately I have felt while working under many other teachers prior). She allows you to be creative yet also guides you to make the strongest possible choices in your role. She truly cares about her students and will work with you to overcome an obstacles you face. Diana understands how to work with a beginner or a seasoned professional, seamlessly providing a comfortable atmosphere to do your best work. Do yourself a favor and work with Diana; she has a special gift to teach and connect with others. Most importantly, she will do her best to help you reach your own personal goals in acting whether you want to be a professional or not. If more acting teachers were like Diana there would probably be a lot more great actors! Thank you Diana for your dedication, support, and excellence you provide for your students!

All of Diana's extensive background as an actor & screenwriter is evident in the way she teaches. Her rich experience allows her to treat each student with an independent approach tailored to meet the most effective way each individual learns.
In addition, Diana truly cares about you, which allows you to safely open up to your own vulnerabilities & master over them.

I understand that each actor has different needs - that’s why I train and work in various styles to create the most well rounded actor. All acting techniques are designed to get you to be as present as possible in your given circumstances and it is important to me that you develop the skills to do so. Learning what tools work for you is the most powerful weapon an actor has.

My goal is for students to develop a solid acting technique that can be used in various types of acting. I work on a variety of areas including, multi-camera, single-camera, improv, theatre, cold reading, and film using sense memory, objectives, repetition, and more.

With years of experience in film, television, and theatre, and a burning desire to share what I've learned over the past 20 years, I strive for my clients to receive quality and professional service.

Whether you want to learn acting for fun or because you can’t imagine doing anything else, I deliver what I promise- which is training tailored to ...

About Jazz
Jazz has trained with The Lee Strasberg Institute in Los Angeles and New York, Stella Adler in New York, Janet Alhanti, Lesly Kahn, and John Rosenfeld Studios in Los Angeles just to name a few.

Born in Stockton, California, Jazz R. started performing at the age of 22 months. It was at her mother’s dance studio where Jazz developed her onstage skills, studying an array of dance styles from salsa to ballroom and modern to African. Jazz started acting at the age of four, when her mother took her to a workshop in Beverly Hills, and quickly progressed from there. By five years old, R. had booked her first commercial and at the age of 6, she booked both her first pilot and her first movie role, appearing as Angela Basset’s daughter in the cult classic “Waiting to Exhale.”

With Jazz’s career quickly taking off, her family opted to reloca
te in order to accommodate it; her mother giving up her dance studio and her father having his job transferred to Los Angeles. Her big break came at the age of 13, when she won the role of ‘Claire Kyle’ on ABC’s hit sitcom “My Wife and Kids” opposite Damon Wayans and Tisha Campbell.

After departing the show, Jazz returned to her first love: dance. She went from the Boston Ballet, to the school of American Ballet, to a full scholarship at Alvin Ailey, where she danced with the first company. During her stay at Ailey, Jazz won a spot at a ballet company in South Carolina where at 16 years old, she was its youngest soloist. In these years, Jazz kept busy with multiple guest appearances on series, including “Law & Order: SVU” and hosting for Nickelodeon and with her education, graduating two years early in the top 5% of the country’s high school students.

Shortly thereafter, Jazz returned to acting full-force and in addition to making guest appearances on the TNT drama “Perception,” “Secret Life of the American Teenager,” “Monk,” and “Without A Trace,” “iZombie,” “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend.” She has held memorable recurring roles on “The Office” (as Stanley’s daughter), “Everybody Hates Chris,” “Jericho,” TV Land’s “The Soul Man” alongside Cedric the Entertainer and Niecy Nash. And most recently as a series regular playing the rebellious daughter of Tony winner, Anika Noni Rose, on BET’s “The Quad.”

About Frances
Performing is my life passion and I love all that the arts have to offer. My first acting role being in the school play at age 5, there was no turning back for me. I continued acting and playing music during my younger year, until I started getting more serious training. I went to the Performing Arts Academy as an acting major all fours years of high school. Based on that training, I had the opportunity to audition for the Metrovation Acting Scholarship at the Two River Theater Company, which I was accepted, and where my passion for acting really expanded. I have taught at the children's acting summer camps at Two River Theater, as well as some private clients. From there I have auditioned all over NYC and have done works from Shakespeare to new works. I attended Point Park University Conservatory of the Performing Arts as an acting majo
r where I studied various techniques and methods, solidifying my acting training. I started out as a very shy child, and the arts have really been the most transformative experience in my life. I am looking forward to helping others achieve their dreams.

I start from the ground up. As an instructor it is my responsibility to first help the student understand the nature of the person, including mind and body awareness. Once they are aware of the physical it can then transform to connect the breath to speech.

This ground work will prepare students for monologue work - understanding character analysis and specificity of each character.
They will learn how to control their breath when speaking, and utilizing pitch variety
Techniques of Stanislavsky, Meisner, and Chekov (Michael) will be used.

About Kendall
I am a professional actress in the Washington, DC area. I am currently apart of the Teaching Artist company at the Smithsonian Institutes Discovery Theater. As a recent graduate at Point Park University with a BFA in Acting, my goal is to give back through my art. As an instructor it is my intention to encourage the student to use the art as a tool for how to navigate through the world.

My acting students become more aware of their bodies and minds, which helps them become more aware in the world around them. It is not solely about the words that are "memorized" in a play, however it is about the internal experience each character has, and ultimately how it changes the actor.

Using the combined methods of Stanislavsky, Meisner, and Michael Chekhov, I will aid my students to freedom in their imaginations, body and mind!
