As a singer, you need a strong foundation to build up to having a great technique to sing well and I feel like Michelle definitely provides a strong bridge of support to help aspiring singers - no matter their level -

Michelle is a patient, kind, and knowledgeable teacher. I didn't have any prior experience in singing or music before seeing her. Michelle was my first-ever singing teacher and I loved my learning process with her! Each lesson my voice has improved and we record every lesson so it's easy to practice when I don't have a lesson.

I definitely recommend her to anybody who is looking for a vocal teacher! She is truly one of a kind :-)

Michelle is a great teacher! She really focuses on expanding range and hitting the right notes and tones. I have heard a difference in my daughters voice, in just a couple of months. Michelle is not only good, but she is patient and keeps my daughter interested and focused.

As an experienced musician, I will be glad to help any student, regardless of their level, prepare for an upcoming audition! We will work on the nuances of the performance and brush up on the parts of the piece with which the student is having trouble. I have extensive experience prepping students for auditions and exams. Furthermore, I have had the pleasure of instructing various actors with no prior background and preparing them for music-related scenes for a variety of U.S.-based and international productions.

Ms. Ozawa,
Is a wonderful teacher. She observes and evaluates a student's skills and then discusses with you areas that need improvement. She teachers students how to use breathing and piano together. Overall I am so happy I found her and was able to learn all the basic from her. I have been to a few other teachers in the past and did not get from them what she taught me. She taught me how to understand music better and how appreciate such a wonderful art.
Holly W.
My first lesson went well. Tomoko is very patient. Even in one lesson, I felt I learned a lot. She finds out what level you're at to save time and plays to your interests. I look forward to more lessons.

How to Handle Rejection as an Actor

One of my college acting professors told us, “if you can’t handle rejection, find another major. Actors are rejected more than they’re cast. You will have to deal with rejection every day; and if you let it get to you, you won’t last long”. Those words stuck with me all these years: not only for their brutal honesty, but also because I wish I had asked her: how do we deal with all this rejection? Fortunately, there are many A-list stars who can tell you stories of how they experie …

5 Movie Monologues for Men to Practice Your Skills

Good monologues are hard to find. They are even harder to find when we are talking about film. Film is a very fast moving medium. We, as an audience, have been trained to expect to see something new every few seconds. Live theatre, however, has enjoyed a long and enriching relationship with the sustained attention of the monologue. Here, we are just going to focus on movie monologues for men, and how they help the actor hone their skills. First, we need to define the thing we are looking …
