Respect for the Actor/Actress journey. I have been a professional actor for 15 years now with a strong focus on Television and Film. I currently recur as a Guest Star on the critically acclaimed series Better Call Saul. Other credits include Friday Night Lights, The Night Shift, Maze Runner: Scorch Trials, Shot Caller, and many more.

My goal is to get you where you want to be as a performer, to continue to push you to use those muscles, because we are what we repeatedly do. Whether it is working on cold reading sides, breaking down the script, getting away from the nerves so "You" can shine, to the business of acting, adding life to characters with subtle nuances, I'd love to help you, it would be my honor.

About John Christian

Hi, I'm John L., and I'm here to help you actualize your dreams as an actor or actress. I can currently be seen recurring as a Guest Star across 4 seasons of the critically acclaimed series "Better Call Saul" the prequel to the world-renown "Breaking Bad" series. It is my pleasure to share with

Fun, Encouraging and Helpful!

Brianna was fantastic with my fourteen year old! She helped build up confidence, was very encouraging and made lessons fun. She uses a variety of techniques to teach singing skills including speech-level singing by Seth Riggs. I highly recommend her for beginners as well as for people looking to record a demo.
Allison M.
Supportive, fun, and SO knowledgeable

I started taking singing lessons because I wanted to pick up another hobby, and Briana has helped me do just that. She is incredibly knowledgeable, helpful, and supportive regardless of what your goals are. She makes the technical side of signing fun and enjoyable, something other teachers I have worked with have been unsuccessful at. Briana provides a positive and warm space to let loose in, and most importantly has reminded me that I don't always have to take myself so seriously. I highly recommend Briana to anyone who is looking for a teacher they can create a connection with, regardless of skill level because she can handle it all!
Melanie A.
Talented, understanding and fun!

I just wanted to take singing lessons for fun and to build up my confidence singing around others. Briana has taken my needs into account and has done a great job putting together lessons that fit my needs. She offers a very relaxed, soothing atmosphere that gives me the comfort that I need to be able to work on my goals. She is very talented as well, which helps me feel confident in her abilities to teach me what I'm looking to learn. Overall, she is a great singing coach and I would recommend her to anyone! :o)

Before beginning the lesson, I ask the student what he or she wants. What does he or she specifically want to learn or gain from dance lessons? My lessons are completely tailored around my student's wants and needs. Dance is supposed to be a fun, relaxing form of expression, so I like to help my students express themselves through movement in a way that is comfortable and fun for them.

About Jennifer

I have been dancing in some form or fashion since the age of 3. I did ballet and tap recitals in preschool, took recreational gymnastics and cheerleading classes in elementary school, and did allstar dance and allstar cheerleading in middle school and high school. When I went away to college, I c
