experienced teacher for singing. And he is very patient and nice.

Nicholas has been teaching my daughter vocal lessons for about 11 months and he’s fantastic!

She’s improved so much in 10 months! He’s awesome and delivers results! My daughter enjoys her lessons with him and she’s just 9 years old and has developed so much due to his mentor ship. My daughter also has an aptitude for singing and tends to catch on to his instructions quickly.

My son loves his drum lessons. Being eight, he naturally has an excess amount of energy and a tendency to chat but Joe has a way of engaging him and keeps him learning. Very positive and supportive as well.

I am a professional educator, actor and talent agent. I began my training with 3 years at Second City learning improv which I have utilised personally and professionally for 20 years. Improv lessons are fun, they require risks and they build great mental agility. Improv is not just for comics- it is for anyone who is shy or anxious about speaking well in public. You get to practice mindfulness - considerably less expensive than therapy- and is a highly creative outlet. You will learn to tune into the people around you and slow down your thinking. In Improv, there is only the present moment. Your moment is now!

I'm going to tell you the SECRET to being the quality of actor or actress that makes millions of people flock to theaters and gather in front of television sets in order to experience your work. Teachers and coaches all over the world have developed techniques and styles to give actors their best chance at being cast by directors and producers and to help them achieve their best work. What they FAIL to teach actors ( its not their fault! they were failed by their teachers before them!) IS... Well, that's where you and I come in. I PROMISE you. If you make a commitment of one month, and at least one class a week... you will learn this secret. It is not actually a secret because all the most talented actors know it. They wouldn't be able to move you the way they do if they didn't. From Tom Cruise to Meryl Streep. to Denzel Washington and Brad Pitt. They share THIS knowledge and they have built their careers and become famous stars for the way in which it allows them to shine. I spent

My daughter has only had her first lesson with Lindsay but we were both impressed with her. She is friendly and was able to make the exercises very tailored to her specific needs and goals. We are looking forward to continuing to work with her.
Rojean
Lindsay has been an amazing yoga/ballet instructor for me. I started taking beginners ballet lessons with her in June of 2019 and she was so patient with me. I later on decided to take yoga with her a couple months later and she is just nothing short of awesome! She is very well spoken during yoga and really knows what she’s doing. She always accommodates with my needs and makes sure I’m comfortable with whatever we’re practicing for that day. For example she’ll ask how I’m doing that day and if I say I’m feeling anxious, we’ll do a relaxing and calming session, or we might do something more physical and energetic if I need to get hyper and start my day energized. She has obviously had a lot of experience in this field and it really does show. I’m super glad I chose lindsay to be my instructor and would never consider going with anyone else.
Maureen L.
I love taking my online classes with Lindsay! Having a really busy schedule, I thought at first this was an indulgence to have a class in the comfort of my own home, however I've rethought that since I've started. These are necessary to keeping, not just my physique in shape, but my ballet up to par, as well as my mental state of being calm, focused & happy. Lindsay is very skilled at shifting each class to what is best for me that day. She's skilled & knowledgeable, proficient, professional, friendly, fun & gives me a thorough workout! Thank you Lindsay!

Acting Tips: What's in your Toolbox?

As with any profession, actors have tools. Just as a doctor needs a stethoscope or a fireman needs a hose, there are certain items an actor must keep in their toolbox. I usually start classes or lessons by asking my new students or clients what they think these tools might be. Sometimes, the answer is very literal ("Script!"), and other times abstract ("Passion!"). None of these is a wrong answer. Being an actor or artist is subjective and everyone's process is different and valid. But t …
