Nicholas has been teaching my daughter vocal lessons for about 11 months and he’s fantastic!

She’s improved so much in 10 months! He’s awesome and delivers results! My daughter enjoys her lessons with him and she’s just 9 years old and has developed so much due to his mentor ship. My daughter also has an aptitude for singing and tends to catch on to his instructions quickly.

My name is Andrew and I have been dancing for more than 7 years, starting with bboying in high school and then Latin dancing. I was a Ballroom Director for the student organization on campus during my college study, as well as joined the SJSU Ballroom Dancesport Team. Right now, I am offering private lesson to beginner and beginner-intermediate for salsa.

My lessons are catered in developing basic fundamental techniques and footwork. After the mastery of the basic fundamental technique and footwork, we will then work toward building patterns. My goal is to make sure my students are comfortable and confident enough in dancing to a full 3 mins songs. Throughout the courses, I will also introduce dance theory and music theory. By combining theories with body mechanic, I am striving to ...

Andrew was a great instructor. He was excellent at communication as far as coordinating and scheduling the lessons. He was flexible and customized his teaching to fit our needs. He made Salsa fun and interesting and was very patient. I highly recommend working with him. It's an awesome experience!

Verena
Such fun! This was my fifth lesson with Andrew. I have learned soooo much. I appreciate how he not only breaks down the physical movements but also breaks down the music and instruments so I better understand how it all comes together! These lessons are worth every penny!

"Alex is quick to asses the essence of a scene. This makes her an ideal addition coach. Not only that, but her background in classical theatre really sets her apart from other coaches I've worked with. She gets tone, she gets, comedy, she gets characters. Alex turned my audition from a flat/static piece to something with depth and charisma. Highly recommend."

"Robert hired me while I was in college and I worked for him for three summers in a row. Not only did I get to watch him teach and inspire a wide age range of students day after day, but I got to learn from him myself. Robert has the kind of passion for theater that carries into whatever he's doing. You can see it in his teaching, you see it in his mentoring, and you see it when he watches his students perform. Robert knows exactly how to talk to a student, in a way that is both compassionate and honest. He has an incredible talent for getting the people around him to be excited about their craft and driven to work hard. One of the things I most enjoyed about learning from him, is that he doesn't sugar coat things. He tells you exactly what it is you need to work on but he does it from the perspective of someone who supports you and believes in you fully. I'm grateful for the theater experience he gave me years ago and I credit him for much of my success today."
