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.
Bob N.
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!!

I've taught acting to children, teens, and adults in the US and abroad since 2005 and my students are working professionally! I also direct theater productions, and can help raise you to the talent level casting directors expect at auditions.

Make sure to wear clothing you can move in during our sessions, and, most importantly, explore and just have fun!

My background and career have never placed importance on speaking and looking objectively at myself, I wanted to improve that ability. Toya has been very patient and down to earth with me, as raw as I am, in helping me. After a few lessons I already feel confidence growing and enjoy her instruction.

How an actor approaches acting on a stage versus film is completely different. Some of the reasons are obvious, for example, with theater you have immediate feedback due to having a live audience. In film you can have multiple takes to get a scene right; however on stage, you have one opportunity to get it right.

In film you want your voice and facial expressions to be as natural as possible. On stage everything has to be bigger in order to convey the right emotion to your audience.

I love performing on stage. I find it more rewarding than film. I have been working in semi~professional theater for over thirty years and am looking forward to sharing what I have learned through the years with other enthusiasts.

Emma
I've taken her class for over a few years now and I can't even describe how much I have grown because of her. I first was very mousy and quiet but I am now achieving and wanting to tackle songs I never thought I could because of her. I recommend her to everyone I know. In all seriousness people around me have noticed a huge change and there may be days where I don't notice it until she asks if I caught that I was able to hit it.
Hannah
I love Miss Tina, She is the best singing instructor ever! She always knew the best songs for me. Hands down the best person and teacher. She has helped me over come so much with her help. She inspired me so much and has helped me evolve with my singing.
