Ryan is a gem of a teacher. My son has been taking trumpet lessons with Ryan for the past 4 months and I couldn't be happier with the results. His love for music and teaching shines through whether it's an in person or online class. My son now enjoys practicing and looks forward to his lessons with Ryan.

I have been taking piano/music lessons from Ryan for 8 months now. It has been a great journey with him. As a 40yo student, I always have my ways of learning music (or anything), and Ryan truly customized every lesson to my likings. And these changes based on what was going on in my life at the moment of the lessons, be that a celebration, a loss, a growth and such. So the lessons with him have been healing process to me like a therapy. Now I understand why there is such thing as music therapy. I started lessons with him to play piano, but he had been showering me with lots of music theory which I have been always curious about. It is like learning a whole new language and it opened up my eyes to a world of music. Ryan is kind, friendly and flexible. An hour lesson with him give me happy and positive energy for a week. Why wouldn’t musical conversations give anyone such pleasure? I am committed to continuing my musical journey with Ryan!

This instructor brings a great deal to the table. I have been in her classes as well as taken private classes from her. She is a professional who has traveled the world dancing. She is extremely talented but she teaches with humility never making anyone feel like they are less than. She will teach you while inspiring you to dance your heart out. I would recommend this intructor to anyone who wants to have a great time while learning something new.
Ruzanna
Alessia is the greatest dance instructor, personal trainer, and influencer. I absolutely adore her because she is very dedicated to her job and to her students. She goes above and beyond to make sure her students reach their goal whether it’s becoming a dancer, losing weight, gaining confidence or just having fun at dance classes.
I know Alessia for over one and a half years now. At first, I was taking private classes with her for about five months and later I started taking her group classes. She was very flexible about scheduling the privates and never cancelled a class. She is a super energetic dancer with amazing personality; she loves teaching and motivating her students to go after their dreams.

I have been coaching in this subject for over 16 years. There is no specific curriculum as each student will come to lessons with their own unique skills, needs, and goals. Lessons are tailored to those specifics. Lessons focus on vocal production technique (enunciation, breathing, projection, inflection, etc.), stage presence, and interpretation. These areas are usually worked on using texts provided by the student. Additional material may be used as needed. Students should come to the first lesson prepared to discuss their background & goals and the plan of their course of study.

Beginner and intermediate levels

I have had a lot of experience in front of a wide variety of audiences. Not just performing music, but teaching classes, giving seminars and business and sales presentations. Sifting from what worked (and what didn't) have a lot of insights to offer anyone who has the occasion to speak in front of a crowd or in a meeting or at a school event.

"I`ve been taking Shakespearean acting lesson with Michael for a month now and I am very satisfied with him and his method.
Although, I have much of prior acting experience, I was quite unfamiliar with Shakespeare´s plays, lofty language and his metaphors, Michael helped me get to the essence of it very quickly.

He´s a very reliable and effective acting teacher. He`s also punctual, always arrives on time with a plan of what we are hoping to achieve in each lesson. His clear and structured method of teaching enables steady progression.
I definitely recommend him."

Acting Tips: What's in your Toolbox?

As with any profession, actors have tools. Just as a doctor needs a stethoscope or a fireman needs a hose, there are certain items an actor must keep in their toolbox. I usually start classes or lessons by asking my new students or clients what they think these tools might be. Sometimes, the answer is very literal ("Script!"), and other times abstract ("Passion!"). None of these is a wrong answer. Being an actor or artist is subjective and everyone's process is different and valid. But t …
