I have participated in a number of singing groups and chamber groups. I am currently in a chamber group in California where we will premiere a composers new song cycle in July and August of 2020.
I have also sung in (and am a member) in a number of opera choruses and local chapter university groups. I was also invited to lead the Birmingham Chinese Choir in Alabama and create and lead choir classes at local schools in California.
I assisted in directing and leading a number of performing arts summer and spring camps where students would learn and perform several pieces in less than a week!
To say I have been around the choral setting for most of my life is most accurate.

Music lessons are all about expression, education, and creativity.

During our vocal/choral lessons, we will explore techniques from basics to advanced. Whether you are interested in becoming a better singer or performer in classical, opera, theater, jazz, blues, pop, or rock, you have come to the right ...

I teach some techniques you don't necessarily learn in acting school which are practical and immediately usable.
ACTING
What do you do when you get the script?
Using subtext to bring realism to your performance.
Line delivery: tricks of the trade.
AUDITION
Do you have the right monologue to fit the parts you can play?
Suggestions for a monologue(s) to fit your persona. You need more than one to fit the different genres of the play or film you are auditioning for.
How to break it down, the importance of changes.
Tactics for attacking the cold read: what to do while you're waiting in the lobby after they just handed you your "sides."
Also, refer to ACTING (above).
DIALECT

Philip
Lynn is a fantastic teacher! She effortlessly bridges genres and styles. She is personable, dedicated and inspiring. We are incredibly fortunate to have found her.
Chris
Lynn is stellar. Her background and training are substantial and impressive. She is prompt, courteous, calm and absolutely wonderful with our daughter (Age 9) who has challenges focusing and staying on task. Lynn is kind, but navigates the lessons confidently, fluidly and with a focused energy. She works with our daughter's playfulness, incorporates humor and positive, encouraging energy into every lesson. Our daughter has shown signs of great improvement with Lynn. Lynn assigns tasks and practicing points each week for our daughter to work on which are balanced and also bring in a component of improvisation, which is SO helpful for kids who have challenges with focusing. Lynn is awesome, highly recommend!
Jessica
Lynn is amazing!! Not only do my children love her as a person (they literally wait at the window on Wednesday nights) but she knows how to keep them engaged and interested in learning throughout their lessons. My son has learned to play actual songs in less than 10 lessons. Can't recommend her enough!

"I have had a wonderful experience with Jeremy. I am completely new to acting- I am a physician and wanted to improve my public speaking skills and my "stage presence" so to speak. Jeremy has been incredibly helpful with this! He has done a great job of teaching me some basics about acting, and also tailoring the lessons to meet my goals. Also, it has been really fun! I highly recommend Jeremy as a teacher."

"I absolutely love Kim's acting coaching!

I have been in financial business for many years. Recently, I took a project and need to adapt quickly to play a role in a film within very short time period. I am very lucky to find Kim:

(1) She is well prepared for each lesson. She understood clearly about my objectives;
(2) She gives me lots of valuable tips to improve my acting skills;
(3) She is very quick to grasp the film writer and director's intention for the role;
(4) She pays great attention to every detail of the script to help me to maximize my potential in the role;
(5) She goes above and beyond: she reviews my recording and gives me great feedback after the lesson; she went through multiple scripts within very short time period on her own time;
(6) She is extremely fun to work with;

I just finished my second lesson with Kim. She is not only a great acting coach, but a great actor! She is definitely a go to person in my future film venture!!!"

An Actor's Life: Your Career Path to New York Shows

If you're an aspiring Broadway performer, the steps you take during high school play a significant role in your success on the stages of New York shows in the future. Sure, you sometimes hear stories of people who book amazing lead roles in shows after a single audition, but that’s not a realistic view of how it all happens - for most actors, at least. Ask any working Broadway performer – New York is not a city that hands you success simply because you’ve just moved there. Hard work, disc …
