Gabriel is a very helpful teacher that will help you go deeper into what you are saying and doing and he really helped me understand how to find layers and everything that a real believable human being would say and do when you are portraying a different character

Love how she teaches the mechanics of learning to sing properly such as breathing correctly and posture right from the start for a beginner. Fantastic instructor!

Amazing singng instructor

Crystal has increased my daughter’s self-esteem and expressiveness through song. My daughter is now writing her own poetry and song lyrics, as well as being able to combat her once shyness quality. She loves to perform in front of others now and has a confidence level that amazes me, especially now that she is going into those “teen” years. I think a lot of thanks needs to go to Crystal, for assisting my daughter in reaching her current creative level!

Great piano instructor

Crystal is an amazing piano instructor. She is patient, understanding and dedicated. My daughter has learned so much from her. My daughter’s love for music has increased immensely since learning how to play the piano. This would never have been able to be accomplished without Crystal’s professional and caring teaching style.

I've been teaching acting for 10 years and my students have gone on to enter OCSA, APPA, and Universities such as Cal State Fullerton, Chapman. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to go from your beginning goal and as time goes on you'll be able to achieve your intermediate goal. I specialize in broadway style, typically use free style and improve. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you

I wrote a 5-star review for Art after I had only one or two lessons. After having taken 3 or 4 more, I felt the need to write another one. In his profile, he said his students advance quickly, and he backs that up ten-fold. If you are serious about learning or improving your voice, and you follow his directions, you will advance quickly and you won't even realize it is happening until you are alone and you belt something out that you didn't know you could do. When you are stuck, he knows just what to do. Bottom-line, he gets fast results! As a business executive and a veteran, that is the strongest compliment I can give.

I highly recommend Art. He is very good at getting you right where you want to be, and he does it seamlessly. He will raise your game!!

Online Acting Teacher

I'm passionate about the arts and love to teach! I have over 19 years of performing arts experience, and 6 years of teaching experience (K-8th grade music, as well as dance and musical theatre camps for kids in my community). I received my Bachelor's degree in 2013, studying Theatre, Music, and Art.

What makes acting lessons with me unique is that I have a background in music and dance as well--as musical theatre is my specialty. As a teacher, I will tailor my lessons around you, at your own level and pace, and will do my best to meet your individual needs as a student and performer. After learning what your goals are, I will provide a variety of material for you to prepare and perform. In addition to some fun exercises, we will do in-depth analysis of monologues and dialogues/scenes. I also offer an Audition Prep course!

I am loving, creative, and meticulous--and great with children! We're going to have so much fun and I look forward to sharing my knowledge and passion for the

My daughter loved Melanie!
Sarah
Melanie is an absolutely incredible vocal teacher/coach. I noticed a change in my voice after just the first lesson. Her vast knowledge of the anatomy used to create vocal sounds combined with the techniques she teaches has definitely improved my voice. She taught me how to belt and showed me the difference between my belt and my mix, which was beyond helpful. She also taught me how to sing in my head voice in a healthier and more effective way. And on top of that, she has a mental library full of great song recommendations for my individual voice. Can't wait until our next lesson!

"The skills I gained as an actor studying with Shauna Kanter have never left my acting toolbox and feel as fresh in my mind today as when she first taught me. Shauna brought a whole world of new possibility to my acting, as I reached new heights with character physicality and also found new ways of accessing emotional depth within my character. Shauna always created an inspiring environment that felt safe to for me to push myself and not be afraid to fall. My experience with Shauna was inspiring and so valuable. Consider yourself lucky to have found her."

"Ms. Rebecca has been a phenomenal teacher! I am so grateful for everything she has taught me. She has a well rounded teaching style that pulls inspiration from both renowned teachers of the past (Stanislavsky, Adler, Meisner, etc.) and themes found in our current events (politics, pop culture, etc.) She has trained me in anything and everything from the basics of stage acting, improv, film, script writing, and even how to method act safely. I have been awarded multiple Superior marks while competing under her teaching and am now working in my community theatres thank to her preparation. In her classes, I not only grew as an artist, but as a person as well. I honestly couldn’t recommend her more!"

"Upon my first time working with Erin it was extremely obvious how technically proficient she is, although it should be no surprise, since she has a Masters in Acting from a top graduate program. Not only was I able to place complete and utter trust in her extensive knowledge of the craft, but her nurturing energy and humorous demeanor create such a positive environment to take risks and be exploratory in my work. I couldn’t ask for anything more in an acting instructor. She’s truly awesome."

"My daughter really loved this class! We loved that Miss Mandi was able to spend the time with her giving her advice and critiques on her performance. We were given the script in advance and my daughter was able to practice and really think about which direction she wanted to take her character. She especially enjoyed the audition part of class where she got to practice going to a real audition. The personal feedback we were given really made my daughter feel special and like Miss Mandi cared about her. You can tell that the teacher has had real acting experience and had knowledge of the auditioning process. My daughter feels like she knows what to expect when going to an audition now which gave her a ton of confidence. Thanks Miss Mandi!"

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 …
