Love how she teaches the mechanics of learning to sing properly such as breathing correctly and posture right from the start for a beginner. Fantastic instructor!
Tamura H.
Amazing singng instructor

Crystal has increased my daughter’s self-esteem and expressiveness through song. My daughter is now writing her own poetry and song lyrics, as well as being able to combat her once shyness quality. She loves to perform in front of others now and has a confidence level that amazes me, especially now that she is going into those “teen” years. I think a lot of thanks needs to go to Crystal, for assisting my daughter in reaching her current creative level!
Tamura H.
Great piano instructor

Crystal is an amazing piano instructor. She is patient, understanding and dedicated. My daughter has learned so much from her. My daughter’s love for music has increased immensely since learning how to play the piano. This would never have been able to be accomplished without Crystal’s professional and caring teaching style.

Our first lesson was productive. I'm looking forward to learning!

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.

I’ve made a life for myself in the creative fields, and I’d like the opportunity to work with you!
I’m an award-winning actor and have Broadway, off-Broadway, Television, Film credits. I am also a playwright, a Drama Desk Nominated Director, and a Producer. Throughout my career, I have always been a teacher, and have helped develop, and nurture the careers of countless young actors and professionals with practical tools to make them better! As a young actor, I was lucky to be trained by an incredible mentor for many years, he instilled in me a deep respect for the art form, and as it should be I impart that knowledge to everyone I teach. I will teach you to be the best actor you can be, that’s a guarantee.
In Los Angeles I coach professional actors, most recently the female lead In Will Smiths Bad Boys III, as well as one of the male principals in the Mark Walberg Film Patriots Day. My process is simple, and yet through. Script analysis, so you know exactly what the material ...

Carlo is an amazing actor and teacher. He teaches you to commit 1000%, and he is always invested in you as a coach/director. No matter what you’re working on in your acting, he will guide you to push the boundaries of what you think you’re capable of, always with a great sense of humor. I can’t recommend him enough!
Charles Burks
Carlo simplifies and reduces the tools of acting which can be very overwhelming into simple and manageable steps. He has a deep respect for the art form and a practical no-nonsense way to help you find the truth in your acting while finding a way to make it dynamic, and help you stand out. I always recommend him, and will continue to do so! His teaching has employed many actors over the least 10+ years
Benjamin
Carlo is truly WOW! His classes are not only deeply insightful, but pure entertainment. He has become my acting mentor. He has changed the way that I approach acting and I owe much of my success to him.

"I have learned so much with Nicholas. I feel like I'm always walking out of our lessons with my mind blown! We've been working on Shakespearean acting which I am now thoroughly enjoying. I now have a deeper understanding and appreciation for the lines than which I have learned in school. I would highly recommend his coachings to any actor!"

She put me at ease right away and from the very beginning showed such excitement to be working with me. She comes prepared, takes the session very seriously, but also has fun with it so time flies by. I'm honored to be her student and pupil, and look forward to many more acting lessons, as she imparts her wealth of knowledge of Shakespeare and acting technique."

"I've had the pleasure of working with Anthony for almost a year now and it has been the best decision I've ever made. Anthony is the type of teacher that knows your potential and will do everything he can to push your skills to the next level. He challenged me on my diction, reading lines out-loud, and taught me techniques on how to understand the character I was playing in ways I never would have thought. I can't say enough amazing things about him!"

"I had college auditions coming up and needed to get coaching on my classical monologue. Adam's coaching was really helpful. He got me to understand the language and the meaning behind the words and how to use my express myself, physically, through the text. He helped me feel really confident going into my auditions. I can't recommend him enough!!!"

"Chad provided excellent technique coaching in Shakespearean Acting. I had the opportunity to work with him in one on one sessions and also in a group setting. Both kinds of sessions gave me unique tools like ensable building and utilizing Shakespeare’s text along with all its double meanings. He is easily able to cater to each individual actors needs and really understands how to help break bad habits in order to allow for more growth. Along with text work, Chad provided excellent coaching in creating distinct physical shifts in the body when playing multiple characters in a show. Chad was always willing to answer any kind of questions and continued to surprise me with the ways he could shed some new light on Shakespeare’s work."

"I was always afraid I couldn't learn Shakespeare, but Nicholas explained the intent on the word, the intent on the line. Soon, I was so caught up in the meaning of the lines and the story I was telling in that moment that I was able to engage in the role, smoothly, without worrying that I was performing Shakespeare. He broke it down so I could understand it, and then feel confident doing it. Highly recommend!"

"Michael is a fantastic teacher! He helped me work on my Cleopatra among other great characters. He is focused, knowledgeable, passionate and has a profound manner in making the text accessible-current and personal. I used to have difficulty relating to a piece, the language intimidated me. Michael helped me to make the text my own, coming from my own heart. It changed how I worked on everything, both classical and modern."
