Nick is an amazing voice teacher and a highly skilled singer himself. His lessons are very thorough, but also fun! While Nick gives you corrections, he also emphasizes the things that you are also doing well on. You will leave his lessons feeling confident and energized!
Emma
I have had the privilege of working alongside Nick, learning from him, and watching him grow as a performer and as a teacher. I have seen him instruct and collaborate with peers and adults, as well as kids ranging from 8 to 18. The way in which he is able to articulate and pinpoint areas where improvement is available, while simultaneously keeping things fun and positive, is a true accomplishment. He cares so deeply about the work, as well as people. If you are looking for someone for your kids or for yourself, Nick comes with a plethora of knowledge and a humble, jovial demeanor. It will be a judgement free zone, so you can come as you are, wherever you are with your singing journey. Be prepared to work hard, connect to your body, and have a great time. I personally still look to him for audition advice, style tips, and reminders of technique. I could not recommend Nick enough.

About Cara Isadora

Hi there! My name is Cara. I am an award winning vocalist and experienced performer who loves to teach singing.

I wrote the review below because I was mad at her for personal reasons... Shes actually a great teacher. Sorry Cara
Estevan
DO NOT! I REPEAT DO NOT take opera vocal lessons from her. She learned from someone who cant even sing. She actually believes falsetto is unhealthy and I spent years avoiding the best part of my voice due to her misinformation. Any look at vocal pedagogy will confirm that falsetto is indeed a healthy voice mechanism used to develop a strong voice especially in tenors and she has chosen to be willfully ignorant due to either bad teaching or just not caring. Wolf in sheep's clothing people. AVOID AT ALL COSTS!
Becca
She's a wonderful teacher! Very caring and patient but to the point. She knows her stuff!

Weekly Classes with Ellen was an ABSOLUTE PLEASURE!! I feel the time flew by through every single class, each one so unique, freeing, positive and fun!!! I ALWAYS LOOKED FORWARD TO EVERY CLASS!! I appreciate and love everything about her energy; so compassionate, non judgemental, kindhearted, insightful, and GENUINE! Her movement, dance style is truly beautiful and awe inspiring, very spirited and special! I get inspired to never stop dancing, just watching her dance!
So filled with utmost gratitude for her and I feel very lucky to have learned from her, even just through online classes, she has helped me let go, surrender in the most compassionate way to all the different ways my body felt like moving, while feeling the inner flow and freedom! Through each move. I improved tremendously in body and energy AWARENESS and CONNECTION! She taught me some of her super creative choreographies and all along giving me space to add free movement, I received both helpful and positive feedback, she really caters the classes to what YOU need and want!! I feel excited that I gained the ability to see and find, to really feel meaning, purpose, a story in any and every move! I will forever cherish these classes we had together!

Ellen is encouraging and took us from where we started. We’re excited by what we will be learning.

"Donnabella is amazingly patient and professional, she gives such constructive criticism and providing beneficial feedback. I throughly enjoy studying my homework, learning more about the new characters, while also understanding how to have a normal dialogue without forcing my emotions. I cannot wait for my next session with Donnabella. I would highly recommend her solely based on her expertise and kind hearted attitude to new-up-incoming actors. I will forever be appreciative of her time, patience, and amazing acting lessons."

"First off all I have to say is the when I started the lessons I though that I wouldn't like it but Mrs. KeLee I knew instantly that I would like it just because of her. As the months go by she helped me with a lot. Like my stage fright, and speaking out. And just for what she has done for me I'm am totally grateful to her for believing in me and helping me succeed. She is a great person and teacher and I hope others think so as well."

I had no idea how it was affecting my vocal performance. Next week we start video taping my performances, and then on to endurance training for my shows. Fawn knows what she is doing! She's a true pro. Highly recommend!"

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 …
