Great Teacher

Phyllis is the best singing teacher I have ever had. She is completely knowledgeable about technique and personalizes each class for her students. Phyllis is so sweet, and believes that there is a singing voice inside of all of us. Since I have started taking lessons with her, my range has expanded and not only that, I have gained new knowledge about sheet music that I had never heard before. I would highly recommend choosing her as your teacher.

"Fawn is more than a teacher, she's a mentor and a trusted ally in this crazy business of music. I decided to wait and write this review for July 4 because Fawn gave me my independence! What better day to celebrate her, than today? Under Fawn's guidance, I'm not the same performer on stage, vocalist or musician I once was, before I was scared, my voice would crack, my hands would shake, my legs felt wobbly. NOW, I am strong, fierce, fearless and independent! No more vocal issues thanks to her brilliant endurance training! For the first time, I performed in front of a crowd of 5,000, and rather than being afraid, I was excited! I could not have done that without Fawn. I am so excited for what the future holds. I won't give up my time with Fawn for nothin'! Here's to bigger audiences, more music, and YOU, Fawn! xx"

"I have studied with a dozen acting teachers over the years. Darren Dowler is not only the most knowledgeable acting coach I’ve ever had, but he has a talent for teaching. And he’s not just a coach. He’s a full-time performer, director and filmmaker out in the field doing it, booking the roles, and acting. He has so much real world experience to draw from it’s obvious why he’s one of the most sought after coaches in the business. You’ll learn more than one lesson from him then a whole summer with another coach. I just saw him in the movie Palau in which he plays the Reverend Billy Graham. He was amazing.

And- he’s great with kids!"

"Jackson's scene study class at ESPA was the first acting class I took after moving to NYC. I couldn't have landed in a more supportive, challenging, and just plain fun classroom. Jackson pushes you to look deeper into the text and yourself to find your way to your best performance. In her class, you are safe to take risks and fail but are never allowed to get away with "good enough." In our class, we had a variety of skill and experience levels and Jackson was able to communicate with and guide each actor in an effective, respectful, and inspiring way. Jackson meets you where you are and always brings you back to the text and the emotional truth of the scene. I would happily take a class with Jackson again."
