Becca has helped me develop my mix and belt. She is very good at spotting what is needed for each different voice and has excellent techniques to help you achieve your goals. I've never been as content with a vocal coach.

Wonderful teacher! Fun, caring, and so helpful!

Becca L. is an amazing teacher! I have such a fear of singing in front of people, and she helped me face that fear and get on the road to conquering it. She totally understood where I was coming from and worked with my specific skill level and ability. I always felt comfortable with her and had fun! She knew how to challenge me and push me to meet my goals, and I am so happy that I found her!

I really enjoyed my lesson with Dr. Jefferson today! She gave me valuable information to help me get started and apply for upcoming lessons. I selected my monologue 🤩 and I'm ABSOLUTELY excited for our next session!
Linda
It was my daughter's first contact with professional acting.
She has been talking about being an actress for quite a while now, so we decided to let her take a few lessons to see if she likes it.
Ollie was really comprehensive of our needs and made us see the big picture of that world... just what we needed, to start walking into that direction on the right path.
My daughter had a wonderful time with Ollie.
Kristyl N.
I booked 4 acting sessions with Ms. Ollie for my daughter. Ms. Ollie did a phenomenal job starting from scratch, coaching my daughter for her up coming audition. My daughter had no acting experience, she was shy, and soft spoken but in just 4 short days, Ms. Ollie turned her into a confident, outspoken young actress. My daughter nailed her audition thanks to Ollie!! I will highly recommend her as your acting coach.

"Christian came to my school to work discuss with students what it takes to be an actor. He shared many insights he has learned along the way, and gave them a ton of information about the pros and cons of the industry. He was an extremely dynamic speaker and the student were highly engaged throughout the lesson. They were able to ask him questions and he answered them in ways they could understand. He was so amazing, I keep asking him to come back!"
