Whether you are just starting out in your journey as an actor, or you are interested in refining your skills with relevant and applicable concepts and methods, I will devise a program tailored specifically to your aspirations. Character development, objectives, actions, dialogue interpretation, stage movement: just to name a few of the skills we will be studying and honing. We will work on monologues and scenes, both from theatre and film, to explore a variety of acting styles. And if it's Musical Theater you enjoy, we will unpack the elements in that genre, and prep you for auditions. Always, classes are predicated on fun!

I can't really talk too much about how other teachers work, and also don't want to. But I know I have and always had many happy and successful students. From kids, adults, professionals, hobbyists to people who retired and finally have time to fulfill a life goal.

Marcel is an extremely capable German tutor. He has an extensive understanding of German and will out of his way to help you learn.
Friederike
I take lessons from Marcel for about 5 years now. We started with Accordion and I asked him later if he could teach me German as well. I knew he would teach German. No I am taking 3 hours accordion and mostly 2-3 hours German on the weekends and I am loving it.

I can truly say he is one of the best teachers / tutors out there. He is not only super patient but puts so much heart and passion into the lessons.

I know he is mostly super busy but if you have the chance to take lessons with him, I would say GO FOR IT! :)

Teaching ballet has been a passion of mine since I was in high school. With many years both recreationally and pre-professionally, my goal is to reach then exceed each student's goals. We will hit the ground running with my unique approach for both beginners and advanced dancers. I have no doubt every student is capable of exceeding their potential!

Improv is all about NOT SAYING NO and being fearless! A true actor should thrive on improv. It takes great skill to be raw and inventive on the spot. Improv is best taught in groups but one on one is excellent as well, especially for the beginner.

I firmly believe that the ability to act well resides within every person who has the desire to act. In order to access this ability, actors need to develop a strong sense of self, increase their confidence, and rid themselves of the habitual tensions that hold them back. Therefore, I believe good actor training is personal, individualized, and focused on self discovery.

Lessons with me will focus first and foremost on discovering and honoring yourself as a person and an artist, and then on developing your relationship with the text. We can work on a specific piece or pieces (for an audition or a performance), or on plays, scenes or monologues that we choose together, to help develop you as a performer. No matter what, text we choose, we will focus on you speaking own personal truth through your performance.

I have recently been accepted into an elite graduate actor training program, and so I have had experience and success at preparing school auditions. I can help you put ...

Working with Ryan is always a delight! He has helped me improve my confidence so much, and I feel so much more prepared for my auditions now. His method of teaching and the environment he creates in his lessons makes me feel safe to take risks with my acting in ways I never have before. Thanks for everything Ryan!

"Our son (12 yrs old) has been receiving weekly lessons from Daniel since June. Daniel is a phenomenal and knowledgeable magician, is enthusiastic, works well with children, and was flexible when we rescheduled a lesson due to summer vacation plans. Our son leaves every class with a new skill or trick and we like that Daniel asks our son to practice or review skills/tricks/videos before his next class. Our son has improved his magic skills as well as widened his magic trick repertoire."

4 Fundamental Tap Dance Steps for Beginners

Good dancers can make even the most complicated, strenuous techniques look effortless and fluid. If you've ever watched an experienced dancer perform a tap routine, you probably watched in disbelief as their feet turned into a blur of movement that seemed to move independently from the rest of their body. Sometimes the sound effects are even more impressive; when done well, tap dance is a musical art form that creates its own rhythm. Do you want to train your own feet to create this unique mixt …
