Please disregard my earlier review. I was in Mama Bear mode and after having discussed the matter with Aubrey, I retract my statements. The only suggestion I might make is that she check in with the students about how they felt about their class today? I know time is limited and this would be easy to do in a perfect world. I truly appreciate the way she reached out to me and my child to explain the misunderstanding after the fact.
Hunter
You kept my child muted almost through the whole class, even while he was singing and you paid little to no attention to him at all. He was excited to learn dynamics as a singer and you CRUSHED him. I used to teach private violin and I would never have acted so unprofessionally. You practically made him cry. This hurt us both.

Aubrey is an absolute gem — kind, professional, intelligent, funny, focused, and fiercely dedicated to her craft. Highly recommend!!

My 6yr old just took his first lesson and is hooked. Gigi is very sweet and stirred up an excitement in him. My son definitely liked the "idea" of learning the piano but is now confidant and actually writing his first song! Who knew, 5 notes and you can become a composer! BRAVO GIGI:)

"Gina is a very skilled and experienced actress and teacher. After taking Gina’s classes, I acquired all of the tools and knowledge I needed to start my professional acting career before physically being on a professional set. Not only did she give me the knowledge and tools I needed but also the confidence I needed to start working on professional sets. Because of her vast experience in the industry, she truly knows film from all angles. She has the inside information that a starting actor needs to be successful. She doesn’t just teach you how to act on camera but also shows you the business of working in the entertainment industry and how to conduct yourself on and off set as a professional actor. I highly recommend her to anyone serious about starting their acting career and being a professional working actor or model!"

I was someone who had a great deal of struggle connecting with my emotions and being able to express it in a sensible way. Within few weeks he taught me how to tap into my feelings and express it outwards. Need less to say he is an impressive teacher and if you have the chance, visit him.
