Dan arrived 15 minutes early - good sign for the 1st practice !
Matisse (8yrs old) says "he is super good because he explains the notes in a way that I will remember".
I thought Piano lesson would be a drag for Matisse but he is really excited :) Happy Mom !!!

I coach students on their monologues so they can improve their auditions and self-tapes. I help them with monologue selection if needed, monologue breakdown, character breakdown, performance techniques, exercises, and much more. My students leave with not only an incredible monologue for auditions, but also a more in-depth understanding of acting and character work.

The theater techniques I use to teach acting and coach monologues include: Stanislavski, Meisner, Uta Hagen, and Michael Chekhov. I promote a positive and safe environment for actors to explore their character and creativity.

Julia has been teaching me for quite a while now and she has been the greatest teacher I have had. She has taught me so much in such a little amount of time. She makes me feel comfortable while acting, which I find is an amazing quality for a teacher. She also acknowledges how I feel on certain scenes and takes. She is definitely a great teacher.

I resumed voice lessons with Shelley after a 12-year hiatus. I had adopted some bad vocal habits and had lost confidence in myself as a singer.

Shelley has helped me turn all of that around! Because of her professionalism, calm presence, and deep pedagogical knowledge, my range and vocal flexibility have improved immensely. More importantly, Shelley has helped me find my confidence and helped me realize that the vocalist I want to be is within reach.

I would recommend Shelley to anyone who wants to grow as a vocalist!
Marya
Over the years, I've attempted voice lessons a few times and always walked away after a lesson or two. Not this time! Shelley has done the near impossible task of making me feel safe and at ease during our lessons. She is incredibly patient, supportive, warm, and hilarious, too! In addition to helping me with breathing and vocal techniques (which I desperately need, as I'm a beginner!) she also takes the time to nurture my emotional needs as well, as singing has always felt very vulnerable for me. She offers me mantras and writing exercises and is such a great listener. I highly recommend Shelley for any and all students!!
Micah P.
Shelley is a positive, professional, and effective teacher. My lessons with her were outstanding!

Every single lesson was tailored to my voice and my skill level. As I progressed, so did the lessons. Shelley prepared every lesson and conducted them all professionally. Over the course of a couple months, I went from not being able to carry a tune at all to singing comfortably and confidently in different genres.

She was excellent at teaching all aspects of voice including the anatomical structures involved and techniques to use the voice effectively.

She made difficult concepts easy to understand and used simple training tools very effectively. When I struggled in certain areas, she understood what my problem was even if I couldn't explain it well and helped me correct it.

In addition to her effectiveness as a coach, she is just a wonderful person and joy to work with. I plan on taking more lessons from her and I strongly recommend her to anyone!

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 …
