Emmy Award Winner David T. has over 33 years of acting experience in Film, TV and Stage. He is best known World-wide for his role on “The Young and the Restless” where he received 3 Emmy nominations and won his first Emmy for Outstanding Younger Actor in a Drama Series for his role as Billy Abbott. He has the experience and training to coach actors who are either beginning their journey with acting or are well experienced actors who are looking to bring more color and light to their work. so they will stand out in front of the casting director & make their tape unique from the rest. Acting is my passion, and I love to share that passion with others so they may reach their dreams of becoming a working actor.

Hi, my name is Christa! I am a voice and piano teacher with a background in songwriting and classical piano. I embrace an intuitive and holistic approach to teaching, learning and discovering the uniqueness of your own style in a fun learning environment. I studied voice and songwriting at Berklee College of Music and have been playing and teaching music to adults and children for several years. I bring a relaxed and holistic and also disciplined approach to my lessons, incorporating warmups and exercises, and song performance and interpretation into each lesson, providing you with tools and strategies for you to take away from each lesson. Voice lesson skills might include: breath management and support, pitch control, ear training, music reading skills and various other topics as well. Piano lesson skills might include note-reading, sight-reading, music theory, time and rhythm, finger technique, music interpretation and more. Lessons are always tailored to your learning goals and musical interests!

I teach all kinds of acting, and have for over 40 years, but I specialize in stage acting, on-camera acting, acting for the face, voice acting, comedic acting, physical acting, improv, script analysis, monologues, audition prep, audition videos and voice over auditions. For Voice Acting, we'll cover the various elements including: pitch; loudness; speed; rhythm; tone; prosody; variables and variations; character elements; use of dramatic and comedic pauses; emotion; enunciation; emphasis; pace; intervals; nasal continuents; u-glide; musicality; timing, and more. We'll study mic technique, what to do and what to avoid. We'll study how to prepare your script, including identifying and using key words, and script shorthand. We'll explore what to expect in the studio, how to work with a producer, how to work with a sound engineer, and how to work with other voice actors. We'll apply the elements of Voice Acting to the study of voice artistry, video game voiceovers, commercial voiceovers, audiobook narration, character voices, dialects, documentary vo, reading short stories, auditions, and more. We'll cover: vo markets; how to develop leads; how to cultivate clients; what to expect from a client; how to audition; and how to deliver work that will make the client happy. We can also explore how you can create your own basic home studio, including microphone, software, interface, computer, headphones, and sound blankets.
