Specific & clear in her instructions, open to feedback, patient and encouraging, courteous and respectful - not to mention a great singer. Looking forward to future lessons with Deborah.
Jeeyun
I was pretty nervous about taking a singing lesson, as it's something I've never done in my life. I'm so thankful I got connected to Deborah. She's a fantastic teacher and taught me so much about how our body works to produce sounds when singing and what I am doing. From the first lesson I was already given helpful tips and ways to practice things on my own! I'm looking forward to more lessons with Deborah.

Loved it! Very talented and knew exactly what she was doing! Very Helpful!
Sharon
Monica has been working with my 10 year old daughter over the past year to help prepare her for musical vocal performances. My daughter is quite picky and introverted and simply LOVES her voice lessons with Monica! In addition to vocal technique and hygiene, they discuss and practice telling a story and dissect the emotions behind the song. Monica is so warm, positive, engaged, and can make anyone feel comfortable, seen, understood, and more confident in their performing ability. The hour lesson flies by for my daughter and Monica makes her feel special to boot!

My daughter started a series of lessons with Kristen in preparation of her high school play audition. It was very clear that Kristen is extremely knowledgeable of all technical aspects of singing & able to clearly communicate. My daughter really enjoyed her initial lesson w/ Kristen & is confident that she will be well prepared for her school’s play auditions.

I trained at the same school as Jesse Tyler Ferguson (Modern Family), Ray Fischer (Justice League), Tyne Daly (look her up, you won't be sorry) and Jason Derulo. I am well versed in dialects, American Standard, stage combat (armed and unarmed), film acting, acting for stage, classical, acting and more! Even if you just want to work on a monologue. Im happy to help! I've been a working actor both on stage and screen for almost three years now, but let's be real. We all need a side hustle. I can even help you with learning how to self-produce/promote on a budget.

About Dakota

Hello! I am a trained, working actor with real world experience. Anything else you need to know, if you're looking for a lesson for yourself, is in the class description. Thanks! Dear parents: I worked in childcare for over a decade, am an expert in child development, and have a child of my own!

Acting is all about experiencing what life has to offer. With decades of experience acting in professional and informal roles, I have so much experience to draw upon to help you find what works for you and your dreams of acting. Each of us has different talents, strengths and weaknesses, and all of our qualities can be utilized to explore the multifaceted art of acting. I can help you see and better understand what you bring to the table so that we can hone your skills, focus your attention and intention, and even figure out how to turn any weaknesses into powerful crafting tools.

My background in Psychology gives me excellent insight into the rich playground of character development and the ability to help you find the characters within you, even the ones you never would have imagined you could be. I have the gift for making the path of learning to act a seriously playful journey that can help you reach your goal, whether they are to entertain, inform, enrich, or just

An Actor's Life: Your Career Path to New York Shows

If you're an aspiring Broadway performer, the steps you take during high school play a significant role in your success on the stages of New York shows in the future. Sure, you sometimes hear stories of people who book amazing lead roles in shows after a single audition, but that’s not a realistic view of how it all happens - for most actors, at least. Ask any working Broadway performer – New York is not a city that hands you success simply because you’ve just moved there. Hard work, disc …
