Skilled, caring and fun teacher!

I am so happy to have started classes with Christine. In the couple months I've been working with her I feel a huge improvement in the quality of my singing and comfortabity with technique. Christine has tailored our lessons to meet my exact needs. She's an expert in classical voice and her depth of knowledge means I'm learning about musicality, composers, technique, and performance. She is a fantastic teacher, fun to be around, and has empowered my voice more than any other teacher I've worked with! I'd highly recommend Christine.

Great for a beginner

I came into these singing lessons with zero singing experience, and it's been really positive. Christine helped me to feel comfortable right away. She's been engaged with what I've wanted to learn, and put thought into customizing instruction for me.

We talk about listening for harmonies in different types of popular music, how to train my ear to hear, suggestions of different recordings to listen to, and even a bit of music theory. I have some historical music experience (violin), and she's found ways to connect the singing instruction to what I already know. I'm now (attempting) to learn a folk song she's suggested, and found myself surprised to be able to learn and observe quite a bit through the process-- and begin to pull it off-- I think. :)

I see several reviews here from trained singers, but wanted to chime in that Christine has been great for a very untrained student as well!
Bronya F.
Great Teacher

Christine is an incredibly generous person who deeply cares about her students' needs. She carved out time for me from her own performance rehearsals when I was under a lot of pressure to measure up for a performance that was just around the corner.

She is extremely encouraging and positive, and she knows the techniques to get your performance level higher or to expand your range.

I would definitely recommend her.

I teach the voice as a functional tool to be used for self expression and communication with others. If you've ever struggled with projection or vocal fatigue, developing the voice is for you. I believe the voice is best developed through singing, as it works the voice in a way no other medium can.

Whether you are preparing for a presentation, learning lines for a play, or trying to maintain vocal health for everyday speaking tasks, you have a place in my studio.

Film scoring has been my ultimate passion since I was 9 years old. I have an MFA in film scoring from Columbia College Chicago. I am currently scoring a few films and teaching lessons on the side. I love teaching! I have many scenes to share with students for them to score. I would talk with students about the scene they're scoring, share tips and focus on style, technique, and emotional content of the scene. I have lots of technology experience, so I can help students learn how to actually turn the music in their heads into a physical recording. I specialize in Logic, ProTools ,and DigitalPerformer but can work with students in Garageband as well.

Darren is an incredible acting Coach. I couldn’t recommend him higher. He goes so above and beyond with his time, his care and investment in you as an actor, his amazing guidance and how to truly delve deep into a character and a scene. Before I started taking with him, I was ok as an actor. Once I started working with him, I started getting callbacks and booking jobs and really started to grow and reach my full potential as an actor and I began to feel very confident about my abilities. If you take lessons with him, you will be so happy you did!!
jb
It was such a pleasure to have my daughter working with Darren. He instilled confidence in her, taught her how to prepare herself to be an actor, and provided her with opportunities to show off her craft. THANK YOU! Darren for your time, help and support of our budding angel!! You are The Best.
Steven
I initially started with Darren in Orlando in 1990. Being a talent manager I wanted to understand acting better to better help my clients needs. After a few lessons I had learned so much that I required my entire client stable of about 25 people to take his class. He had to add an additional night to handle my people. In a couple weeks I saw incredible growth. In a few months I had the best acting stable in Orlando. My people were working.

Darren is one of the most talented actors and teachers I’ve ever come across. But he’s not the coach for someone who takes it lightly. He’ll work your butt off.

"Fawn was fantastic. She'd go the extra mile in sending me breathing exercise videos outside of our 1 hour lesson (so as to not impede with our lesson time, she took the time out of her day) for me practice. She's great at making me feel comfortable doing what i'd call "silly" or "embarrassing" exercises that actually make a huge difference and are beneficial. She's the best."

"I`ve been taking Shakespearean acting lesson with Michael for a month now and I am very satisfied with him and his method.
Although, I have much of prior acting experience, I was quite unfamiliar with Shakespeare´s plays, lofty language and his metaphors, Michael helped me get to the essence of it very quickly.

He´s a very reliable and effective acting teacher. He`s also punctual, always arrives on time with a plan of what we are hoping to achieve in each lesson. His clear and structured method of teaching enables steady progression.
I definitely recommend him."
