With a BA in Acting from London's Central School of Speech and Drama, Crystal has learned to use the nuts and bolts of technique to support freedom in artistic choice. With a focus on stage performance, she works with students to find their own unique approach to acting.

About Crystal
Crystal brings a lifetime’s experience of professional musicianship to each of her lessons. Born into a family of musicians, she sang her first solo at age 2. She also benefits her students with an extraordinarily diverse musical background, having worked as a vocalist in gospel, country, musical theater, jazz, classical, rock, pop and soul styles. Her performing career has taken her from L.A. church meetings to London’s Houses of Parliament.

Crystal hails originally from Los Angeles, CA - where her musical parents gave her a head start by including her in the family business the moment she was able to contribute. She went on to study classical voice, piano and music theory at The Boston Conservatory of Music. After concluding her studies in London, she returned home and began working regularly as a theater performer, appearing in twen
ty world premiers and re-imagined classics. Most notably she played the lead role of Keely Smith in the big band jazz musical “Louis and Keely: Live At The Sahara” during its eight-month run at Westwood’s Geffen Playhouse. She also formed her own rock band, The Honeysuckle Jones Revival, with whom she performed her own songs all over Los Angeles. And she began working as a studio session vocalist, providing demo vocals for other songwriters, as well as arranging and performing back-up vocals for original artists, including Laura Roppe (currently in the Top Ten on Billboard’s Uncharted list of emerging artists.) Crystal played the lead role of Brooke in the new operatic rock musical “The Burning Opera LA” during its Los Angeles run in 2011 as well as providing ensemble vocals and playing piano and bass. She also performs holiday tunes from the Golden Age of American songwriting with musical quartet The Sleigh Belles.

Crystal believes that music is serious business but that it should be fun. She encourages her students to play music they love, as well as expanding their musical knowledge. She is a firm believer in basics first and emphasizes theory and technique as the tools to support creativity and provide freedom, power and control. She believes effort beats talent every time and the student who practices consistently will see results, whatever their level of ability. Most of all, she believes we were all born to make music.

*** Lesson Details ***
Lesson structure varies depending on the student's instrument, age, level of experience and musical style. However, all lessons focus on:

Technique
Music theory
Performance style

After 3 or 6 months of consistent lesson attendance and practice, students will have a clear understanding of how their instrument works and how to care for it. They will be able to read basic music notation. They will be working toward clearly defined musical goals and they will have at least three performance pieces learned.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Loft Space: full size electric piano with weighted keys, small digital recorder, microphone, Garage Band, parents can sit in on lessons

*** Travel Equipment ***
I bring a small keyboard for vocal students with no piano, karaoke tracks and a digital recorder. I also bring a selection of games. Students are expected to purchase all necessary books and sheet music.

*** Specialties ***
Young beginners (piano)

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.

Dallas, TX
View Full Profile

I have a Masters degree in Acting from the acclaimed Actors Studio Drama School in Manhattan, so I am well versed in most every acting technique; including Stanislavski, Strasberg, Meisner, Chekov, Hagen, Stella Adler, and beyond. I've taught acting to children, teens, and adults in the US and abroad since 2005 and my students are working! My main goal is to help you to develop your own set of tools for practicing the craft of acting, and to better understand your unique voice as an artist. Make sure to wear clothing you can move in during our sessions, and, most importantly, explore and just have fun!

About Toya
I have taught acting to small children, teens, and adults in community, private, and collegiate settings. I taught acting at the legendary Lee Strasberg Theatre Institute in New York City. My love of the arts has enabled me to study and perform in various cities throughout the US; including Los Angeles, where I studied at the Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute, to Europe, Mexico, South America; then back to New York City, where I earned a Master of Fine Arts degree in Acting from the prestigious Actors Studio Drama School.

I currently work professionally as an actor, singer, and TV and radio host. I've been fortunate enough to work in film, TV, theater, musical theater, hosting, commercials, improv, and voice-overs. I am also a vocally trained mezzo-soprano. Because I am still a working artist, I can not only teach you craft
, but can assist you in making the right choices to navigate your own way in the business. I offer private coaching to actors in theater and film, and singers in the US and abroad. I would love to share my knowledge and experience with you.

*** Lesson Details ***
I offer private coaching to children, teens, adults who have an interest in acting or singing performance, and for those who simply have an interest in performing or speaking in front of others. In addition to coaching those who wish to better their skills in acting, voice and speech, and singing, I also offer coaching for non-actors; i.e., attorneys, business professionals, teachers, politicians, pageant participants, and other creatives, who want to improve their public speaking and communication skills.

Learn the techniques that I learned at THE JUILLIARD SCHOOL. I have worked on screen with Mathew Mcconaughey, Woody Harrelson, Michael Shannon, Amy Schumer, Zooey Dechanel, Michelle Monaghan, Jamie Bell, etc. I’ve originated numerous roles in Obie and Lortell award winning and Pulitzer nominated Off-Broadway plays under some of the best directors including TONY award winner, David Cromer. Since 2012 I’ve had the great pleasure of coaching and teaching actors of all levels. This is training for people serious about taking their acting to the next level. Whether you’re starting out and looking to establish a sturdy base of the correct fundamentals, or you’re looking to explore every crevice of a scene for that screen test, these tools will help you unearth the truth of every moment that you portray.

About Robert
I am a professional actor working in stage, film, and tv. I received my BFA in drama from The Juilliard School in NYC.

In acting we seek out a very simple thing that is shrouded in an utterly complex set of circumstances, a moment of truth. My students develop a toolbox of classical training techniques; from scene study to voice and speech, which we work on putting into practice with practical grounding mental insights that come from years of experience employing this training in the acting industry.

I have originated roles in numerous plays Off-Broadway and performed on stages from Los Angeles to London, working with award winning writers such as Ethan Cohen, Adam Rapp, Brandon Jacob Jenkins, and directors such as TONY award winner David Cromer. While acting alongside the likes of Helen Hunt, Michael Shannon, Michael Mckean, Shirl
ey Knight. I've appeared in guest star roles on True Detective, Inside Amy Schumer, ER, The Path, Law and Order, and played a recurring guest star role on Turn: Washington's Spies on AMC.

I love the art of storytelling, one of our oldest human traditions. I love the excavation of a piece, finding it's spine, and the delicate elegance of bringing it to life. I hope to share that love of the art form with you.

I’ve watched Mr. Beitzel give everything from full, in-depth lessons to small morsels of advice that change a performance entirely. Every time I’ve been impressed with his eye for the truth and the ease/effectiveness with which he conveys what he sees to the actor. He takes his time, he cares, and above all he loves the craft of acting.

Rob has an ability to get to the heart of what a scene is truly about and work with actors on how best to incorporate themselves into their character. Rob knows how to talk to actors in a way that is understandable and relatable, and organically helps them achieve a higher level of acting. He finds what techniques and triggers work best for you - maximizing your potential in the most efficient manner. He is an astute judge of character and has a very good sense of what will work best in a scene. As a Casting Director I have sent many actors to Rob over the years and have always been impressed with the progress once rob has started working with them.
