About Teri

I teach students of all ages in a relaxed, encouraging, and fun way- but with the structure many beginners need to reach their goals and with the background of a professional singer! Students will see themselves making progress and reaching set goals! This encourages them to continue on their musical journey - becoming the very best they can be! We will also learn fun popular songs and look for opportunities to sing them. We will also learn many styles of pop singing as well -- from pop to rock to R&B to country & more! From beginners and just-for-fun singers to singer/songwriters to pros, each student will be able to learn the skills they need to sing from their heart and find their own true voice. Teri has taught voice for over 15 years to all ages and all levels, led and trained ...

Teri is a premier vocal coach. When I first came to her, I didn't know what I was doing; I knew I had some talent, but didn't know how to hone it. Teri was just the person I needed. A vocalist herself from the school of hard knocks, Teri's real life artist experiences give her unique insights into what makes a vocalist tick and how to discover and nurture one's artistry. She has an excellent ear and is a phenomenal teacher. Teri has an upbeat style; always positive and encouraging, but also honest and straightforward. Teri tells it like it is out of love for the art form and her students. She's a vocal coach extraordinaire, and I highly recommend her.

When I first started lessons with Teri, I could barely be heard and had absolutely no technical skill, or even really the confidence to sing. I now am able to use the techniques Teri has taught me and have completely completely made over my sound as well as my confidence! I absolutely would recommend Teri as a voice teacher; she has taught me so much and always with stellar enthusiasm and expertise. I look forward to continuing lessons with her in the future!

We are lucky to have found her!!!

Around a year ago, my daughter decided she wanted to learn to play the guitar! Thanks to Google, we ran into TakeLessons.
Nicole was recommended to us. After reading about her we were quite impressed!
Right after the first lesson and to my surprise, my (very shy) daughter had a great 1st experience with Nicole.
Nicole is a professional in her field AND also in handling kids and knowing how to help them overcome their shyness. She brings out the best in my daughter and also encourages her to sing even write her own notes!
I would highly recommend Nicole. She is truly talented and the greatest teacher!!!
Christine, Lia's mom!

When you meet Keith it becomes immediately apparent that he loves musical theatre with every bone in his body. His enthusiasm and love for the stage is contagious. Kids just love working with him. I have seen him inspire a group of non-professional actors under the age of 12 to give a top class performance that had the audience on their feet. He is kind, sweet natured and patient with an incredible ability to gently draw out each of his students natural talents. I highly recommend Keith.

ERIC P. Beverly Hills, CA

I've been an Acting Coach for more than 10 years and my students have gone on to sign with notable agents and managers & book leading roles. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to BE and not ACT, and as time goes on you'll be able to break down a script and understand the character. I specialize in method acting, using my own experience as an actor and student myself. I provide all the script material necessary for our sessions.

Eric is a top-notch acting coach. I have been taking acting classes for over 2 years now at various acting schools in Los Angeles and it seemed like I really wasn’t progressing. I was considering private coaching but I always felt that it was just too expensive. Finally, on the recommendation of a friend, I decided to take my first private lesson with Eric. Wow is he great. He has a great personality, is very supportive and positive, and he is extremely passionate about coaching actors.

In this town there are hundreds (if not thousands) of acting coaches, and many of them are out of touch with knowing which skills are needed in today’s acting market. Eric is an actor, producer and director, and teaches a technique that is current, relevant and practical.

It is worth every penny to be coached by someone who is passionate about teaching you and who focuses on only you, and not 15 other students in class. Thanks to Eric’s coaching, I am definitely growing more confident with my skills and it shows at every audition.

Jeremy is an excellent teacher, because he is a forever student. His curiosity and inquisitive nature drive him to make discoveries with his actors rather than thrust his ideas upon them. He listens. Jeremy teaches to and takes care of the whole person, not just the artist. He will get to know you, and help you use your strengths as an individual (as well as an actor) to get to the heart of a character. His energy and passion are contagious, and drive his team forward. I have now worked with Jeremy as an assistant director, actor, and student. I look forward to the next opportunity to learn from him.

Jeremy is one of the most exceptionally gifted directors, coaches, and mentors I've ever had the pleasure of knowing. Our first time working together was when he directed me in Thomas Babe's, "Kid Champion" during my fourth year at the North Carolina School of the Arts. From day one of rehearsals, Jeremy created an environment where everyone felt comfortable enough to make bold, thoughtful, and sometimes, even wrong choices. He never made any of us feel like we were just students that needed to sit back and take direction, but instead, instilled a colleague-like quality that permeated every rehearsal. We were collaborators on this amazing project that we all wanted to see come to fruition, and that is something I will never forget. When I moved to Washington, D.C. after school, Jeremy was there and, without question, took me under his wing giving me the necessary tools to navigate the Washington, D.C. theater scene. Jeremy is the best you guys. I would highly recommend him to any actor that is looking to really strengthen and hone their own personal craft and work habits as well as invest in someone who is only interested in developing the type of actor YOU want to be. He has taught me so much and I know there's even more he can teach me; so for that, I am thankful and can't wait until our paths cross again!

Jeremy has been an inspiration. He worked with me as a director early on in my college career and helped arm me with the tools that I needed to work professionally. His thoughts are clear and precise, his spirit is willing and curious. A wonderful person to spend your time with. I look forward to the next chance to work with him.
