I teach all levels and people with various backgrounds in acting

About Briana
Briana teaches voice to all ages and all levels. She incorporates breathing exercises, vocal warm-ups, and ear training, into all lessons, as well as performance practice of a song from any genre of the student's choosing. Once the student masters the song, he or she also has the unique opportunity to record the song in Briana's home studio. Her philosophy is that lessons should be fun and productive and, therefore, all of her students have a great time, as well as learn a lot. :-)

Briana also holds a masters degree in English literature and has been teaching English for over 15 years. She is qualified to teach the following: English as a second language, creative writing, English literature, advanced essay writing, composition, and a wide array of others. She teaches at the elementary, middle, high school, and college levels.

Brian
a has studied various vocal genres under a wide variety of coaches: classical, chamber, and pop voice; musical theatre voice and jazz, soul, R&B, and gospel technique at McGill University in Montreal. Briana also spent 10 years studying the classical Suzuki method of piano under Phyllis Kranz (Dover, NH), which helped to develop her ear.

Briana can be heard in commercials including the 2015 international campaign for Coca-Cola directed by David LaChapelle, the 2015 American Express campaign, backing Aretha Franklin on the legendary "Natural Woman," Maybelline's CS Creamy Mattes starring supermodel Adriana Lima, David LaChapelle's Smirnoff spot starring Amber Rose, the 2011 Fanta "Vision" campaign, and national advertisements for "Living Social." She also works frequently in film and television as a soundtrack contributor on numerous projects, including Disney's My Babysitter's a Vampire (2010) (TV), Image's horror anthology Chillerama (2011), and the science fiction film Devolution: Reckoning (2011).

With a unique blend of blues, pop and soul, Briana's immensely popular debut album GRANITE STATE (2009) led to a series of packed shows on the stages of the Sunset Strip, including House of Blues, Key Club, and the Whiskey a Go Go. Her follow-up album, "Armor" was released in 2011 to successful sales on Amazon, iTunes, and Rhapsody.

Briana has also been the featured guest performer at a number of prestigious private events: Dodger Stadium (anthem singer), The Molson Centre (anthem singer), The Whittemore Center (anthem singer), various Gubernatorial Galas, Inaugurations, and more.

Fun, Encouraging and Helpful!

Brianna was fantastic with my fourteen year old! She helped build up confidence, was very encouraging and made lessons fun. She uses a variety of techniques to teach singing skills including speech-level singing by Seth Riggs. I highly recommend her for beginners as well as for people looking to record a demo.

Supportive, fun, and SO knowledgeable

I started taking singing lessons because I wanted to pick up another hobby, and Briana has helped me do just that. She is incredibly knowledgeable, helpful, and supportive regardless of what your goals are. She makes the technical side of signing fun and enjoyable, something other teachers I have worked with have been unsuccessful at. Briana provides a positive and warm space to let loose in, and most importantly has reminded me that I don't always have to take myself so seriously. I highly recommend Briana to anyone who is looking for a teacher they can create a connection with, regardless of skill level because she can handle it all!

I just wanted to take singing lessons for fun and to build up my confidence singing around others. Briana has taken my needs into account and has done a great job putting together lessons that fit my needs. She offers a very relaxed, soothing atmosphere that gives me the comfort that I need to be able to work on my goals. She is very talented as well, which helps me feel confident in her abilities to teach me what I'm looking to learn. Overall, she is a great singing coach and I would recommend her to anyone! :o)

Whether you’re new to performing entirely or you’re continuing the work, I can help you build a toolbox that you can apply to every character.

And if you’re highly experienced and just need some audition prep, I can help with that too! I have been coaching fellow professionals for their auditions for several years.

If you purchase ongoing lessons, we will mainly work with monologues so that I can see and hear everything you’re doing, but if you have some experience, we can also work on scenes together.

We will identify habits of speech and behavior that may be getting in your way, and I will work with you to minimize or change them.

We will also look at how to analyze a scene to get the most playable action out of it and make it most fun to work on.

About Erin
I am an actor, speech & dialect coach, and acting teacher. I had steady freelance teaching and coaching jobs for 3 years in NYC, as well as steady acting work in NYC and Chicago theatre for 5 years total.

I moved to LA from Cambridge, MA, where I earned my Master's in Acting from the American Repertory Theater Institute at Harvard. I am certified in unarmed stage combat as well.

I have coached privately and for theatre productions ranging from world-premieres to revivals of Pinter plays to musicals. I love working with actors of all experience levels!

I had to learn an Irish dialect for a big audition I was called in for last minute. My friend suggested Erin to help with dialect coaching and audition coaching, and man, I'm so grateful. With Erin's training and expertise, I was able to learn the Irish dialect in an hour and nailed the audition! She has experience with multiple acting and audition techniques...she's able to speak multiple acting "languages". If you're looking for any audition coaching or dialect coaching, I definitely recommend Erin! She knows what she's doing!

I have worked with Erin on several occasions, because she is so wonderful at her job! She has helped me to prepare for numerous auditions, many of which have gone very well as a result. She is an incredible actor herself, and she uses her talent and expertise to help me be the best actor I can be. Finding my super objective in a monologue or scene, the different tactics, focus, awareness, groundedness... these are all things she has helped me to do to strengthen my own work. She is down to earth and open, which makes working with her really easy and comfortable. Performing my work in front of somebody else can be very difficult, because I often question what the viewer will think of me. Not only does Erin help me fight that fear, she helps me find the gratitude and joy in getting to perform. I highly recommend Erin as an acting coach! She’s fantastic!

We will work technique, as well as get you a few monologues (contrasting) for your auditions. We will disect the monologues, and give you a clear understanding of the emotion needed for each line, each phrase, each word. Everything matters.

About Judi
Hi everyone! I've been teaching in a variety of areas for many years in many different respects. I teach voice lessons, and audition coaching. I've been doing that for a long time! During my "day-job" years, I was an analyst, and I'm especially skilled with Microsoft Excel. And I LOVE teaching people how to make magic on that program. I have done projects that included creating databases, training departments on the use of said databases, taught entire departments at Jet Propulsion Laboratory how to migrate to Microsoft Outlook from (the archaic) Eudora.

My musical talents run parallel with my affinity for numbers. In my life, it has manifested in music composition, arranging, and musical direction. And, of course, PERFORMANCE! I've performed in and around the Los Angeles area for many years. I own a professional Christmas Caroling co
mpany that I direct and sing in as well. So I'm a performer, and a small business owner! So come see what I can offer!

Normally, I don't write reviews for teachers until a couple of months have passed, but I acquiesce as TakeLessons keep on spamming me to write a review. Unlike other reviews, I'm not going to act as an echo chamber for five-star reviews. This review is based on two months with her after ten one hour online lessons through Skype.

Let's start with the positives. Denise puts in a good amount of effort in teaching you. She's flexible with accommodating your schedule, and she tailors her lessons based on what your goals are. This is evident from her referring to her notes when beginning her lessons with me. She also isn't a clock watcher who makes sure your lesson ends straight on the minute unlike some other teachers.

Is she effective as a speaking voice teacher? So far, yes there has been some progress made. Her methodology might be a bit more different than other speaking voice teachers I studied under. Other teachers focus more on the phonetic sounds, while Denise linger more toward stretches probably due to her dancing background. If you don't like Yoga type of stretches, you may be in for a bad time.

Keep in mind that due to my focus on developing a voice for acting, I'm also not having a pure speaking voice lesson as my lessons are intertwined with monologue work too. If you wish to take speaking voice lessons for public speaking, your mileage may vary.

So why a one-star deduction? Denise at the start can be pushy with trying to sell you more lessons. I mean it goes without saying that of course you'll see improvements faster if you can devote more time to any class, but time and money are factors that everyone should always consider. Let's be frank, private lessons on TakeLessons aren't cheap (unless you're rich of course). I was annoyed when she repeated her tactic three times, enough that it affected my decision to nearly not renew my monthly lessons with her.

She did cease when it seem like I wouldn't budge. Nevertheless, the pushiness did leave my experience a bit tainted, which made me question her sincereness with her excitement and positive reinforcement at times. I continue to give her a chance though because I do feel there's an ongoing improvement with my speech and line delivery. Also because we get along despite being complete opposites in some ways (which seem to frustrate and intrigue her). Despite being my teacher, I see her as a peer in a way because of how close in age we are, but I digress as this review is about her effectiveness as a teacher.

I would recommend giving Denise a try if you’re an actor seeking a speaking voice teacher. In person lessons are still best, but she has proven to be effective as an online teacher despite being a tad pushy with having you buy more lessons from her.

I would love to teach students how to have confidence and find work as an actor and get experience while they are waiting for their big break. How to have confidence in front of the camera or wherever you are.
