Very helpful, and beyond detail focused to get the most success out of someone.

Just wanted to update my review after taking a few lessons with Kristin. In addition to providing great yoga instruction, she's also been sharing these incredible explanations of how my body works (or isn't working right) that clearly come from a deep understanding of science and the structure of the human body. It is amazing to be able to both connect with the body and to understand how it works physiologically at the same time!
John
Kristin is incredibly skilled at Yoga - helping my form and deepening my understanding fo Yoga. I'm recommending her to everyone!

Welcome! As a singer and actress, I am very excited to share my passion for the performing arts. We will begin with a monologue of your choosing. If you need help finding one, I have some to start with! We will work on breathing, enunciation, projection at first, then move on to emotions and background for your character. The best performances reach their audience because when you feel it, they will feel it!
I have a bachelors in singing and have taught music and drama for over six years. If you need help preparing for an audition, you’ve come tot he right place! I have helped countless students prepare for auditions at the school where I previously taught. Or if you just want to increase your acting skills, coaching with me will be fun and effective!

I first had Mrs. White as a drama teacher, she inspired me to go after my dream of participating in my school’s musicals. I hadn’t done musicals before because I was nervous to sing in front of people, but thanks to her guidance and encouragement I tried out for my first school musical and realized how much I enjoyed performing. Mrs. White is very kind and patient, she always encouraged me, helped me to overcome my fear of singing in front of others, and helped me to improve my overall voice. I highly recommend Mrs. White if you are looking for a kind and encouraging vocal teacher.
Miriam
Mrs. White is a great teacher! My boys (ages 8 and 10 at the time of their lessons) loved taking voice and acting with her when she lived in California.

I have no strings background and I thoroughly enjoyed my first Ukulele lesson with Aleksis. Not only did we go through techniques, we also got to play a Bob Marley song at the end of the lesson. Who knew it was possible to play an entire song on the first lesson?! It was really fun and I really look forward to our next lesson.

“Quiet on the set, and… ACTION!” These fictitious six words have been spoken throughout movie and television history to signify the difference and importance of an industry that is still relatively young as an art form. Acting with me in my class is FUN. Because acting with me is about living and being. The camera witnesses and reveals how well the actor (artist/craftsperson) has captured “the moment.” This Mini Term Course, “On the High-Wire Without a Net: Acting for the Camera,” will explore what it means to be fearless in front of the camera as if no one was watching. From watching, talking about, and dissecting great performances to observing everyday behavior in the world, participants will have a glimpse into what building a confident screen presence is all about. The class will include a great deal of writing about the inner lives of people, developing a real presence through individual work and acting exercises, as well as watching master actors at their craft. This class ...

Choral blending and harmonies build the strength to a great choir. Light music theory with group vocal coaching will be the core of my teaching style. I can arrange music for any group size. Being eclectic allows me to teach you how to make music in any genre. Please contact me with what you are looking for from a teacher and we can get a great choir program running.

"I tried several other voice acting teachers on this site before I came across David. And I can say with absolute confidence that he is the best teacher on here. David is kind, helpful, and an incredibly down to earth guy. Most teachers throw you in expecting you to understand their methods like I'm some kind of savant. David however, gives you material but also tells you why he gave you the material. He breaks down the process. Also, certain teachers will coddle you and give you fake praise so you continue to buy their program. And i'm not saying David doesn't give praise. But he gives meaningful praise. He is honest about when I lack in a certain aspect and tells me how to improve, while also giving my positive feedback on the things I am doing well. If you are on the fence about this teacher stop. He is worth every penny. If I got to do it over again I would have chosen him first in a heart beat for twice the money. He has rekindled my passion for voice acting and is actually giving my real hope that I can achieve my goals of becoming a real voice acting soon. I can not stress enough how wonderful he is as a teacher and that anyone and everyone who has a drive to learn acting should take his classes. I am continuing classes with him, but even when I'm finished (eventually) I will never forget what he taught me. Thanks David :)"

She was naturally extremely nervous before the lesson, but I was not as David took the time to have a lengthy call with me a few days prior. He provided so much information, answered all of my questions, and provided the calm I needed with starting a new online program for my 15 yo daughter. She’s already preparing for her next lesson."
