I just wanted one lesson as an intro to gymnastics, and Christian is great! Thanks to him I'm more confident with my backflip and with just one more lesson I believe I can get it down. Definitely recommend! I might add gymnastics to one of my hobbies thanks to him.
Jessi D.
Christian has a very good way of breaking the concepts down to help me get in fantastic shape! I recommend him for anyone who really loves to workout without knowing your working out.

I've been teaching acting for 10 years and my students have gone on to enter OCSA, APPA, and Universities such as Cal State Fullerton, Chapman. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to go from your beginning goal and as time goes on you'll be able to achieve your intermediate goal. I specialize in broadway style, typically use free style and improve. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you

I wrote a 5-star review for Art after I had only one or two lessons. After having taken 3 or 4 more, I felt the need to write another one. In his profile, he said his students advance quickly, and he backs that up ten-fold. If you are serious about learning or improving your voice, and you follow his directions, you will advance quickly and you won't even realize it is happening until you are alone and you belt something out that you didn't know you could do. When you are stuck, he knows just what to do. Bottom-line, he gets fast results! As a business executive and a veteran, that is the strongest compliment I can give.
Bob N.
I highly recommend Art. He is very good at getting you right where you want to be, and he does it seamlessly. He will raise your game!!

Arthur is a really nice guy and a great piano teacher. Very patient!

Hi! I'm Rachel! Teaching people how to sing with ease is my passion. I teach in Orange County, Los Angeles, and online.

In year 2008 I became the single youngest person to be accepted into the world renowned Speech Level Singing International teacher training and certification program. I took vocal master classes and was trained and certified as a vocal coach directly by Seth Riggs, the international authority on vocal instruction who trained artists like Michael Jackson, Josh Groban, Stevie Wonder and hundreds of other Grammy Award winning singers.

I work with all styles. My goal with my voice students is to teach them how to use their voice in a healthy and natural way while maintaining the ...

Rachel has been a wonderful teacher! I feel like my voice has improved so much in only a few lessons. I wanted to to be able to have more confidence in my voice and she has totally helped me get there! She is also so nice and understanding and caters right to your voice. HIGHLY recommend
Conrad K
Our daughter has been taking voice lessons with Rachel since she was 8.5 years old. Rachel has a very warm, kind, and happy demeanor that instantly made our daughter comfortable during her first lesson. Rachel would come to our house every week (so convenient!) to showcase her vocal skills and pass along the knowledge to our daughter. She was always on time, professional, and, most importantly, helped educate and grow our daughter’s singing skills tremendously. Rachel has a unique blend of vocal artistry, understanding of the science behind the art (very rare trait), and ability to transfer that knowledge to her clients. We were so bummed when Rachel moved further away and could no longer do in-person lessons. Thankfully, we tried online virtual lessons via Zoom and it was perfect! I should note that this was way, way before the pandemic so it shows Rachel’s versatility with technology and her ability to teach clients online. I can’t say enough wonderful things about Rachel. She always has your best interest at heart and teaches to ensure long term sustainable vocal growth. We love Rachel and if you try her out, I know you will too.
Sylvia
Rachel has a great personality that always looks to encourage. She often explained how the vocal exercises and techniques helped me as a singer and sought my understanding as well. Its a pity I could afford only a few lesson with her.

A very good first lesson. We went over breathing exercises and scales. Also had time for Amy to critique my speaking style through a portion of a speech I will be giving in a month. Time well-spent.

She briefly went over the next lesson plan and gave me a little homework to do as well.

I got a lot out of this lesson and I can see how this will help me accomplish my goal of being a better public speaker and having a more controlled and stronger voice.

Looking forward to future lessons.

Patient. Gifted Teacher!

Amy is absolutely incredible. She showed keen interest in my concerns and challenges. She listened and knew exactly what I needed to do to get to where I want to be. She makes it easy for me to understand and she is truly a great coach. I can’t wait to see her again.

I've sung in to many choirs to count in some of the coolest venues in the country, from the amphitheatre at Codorus State Park all the way to Carnegie Hall in New York City. I'm currently the director of Traditional Worship at Bethany United Methodist Church in Red Lion, PA where I have the opportunity to conduct a diverse group of people singing an incredibly diverse selection of music

Joe is amazing when he gives vocal lessons. His examples are spot on. His ability to read into your strengths and weaknesses helps you to customise your lesson and focus on those aspects that'll give you quick and sustainable results. Thank you Joe.
Katelyn B.
So far my daughter is pleased and is looking forward to working with Joe. She has only had 1 lesson so far but it was smooth sailing and all went well.
Kyle A.
As someone who was nervous and horrible at singing Joe made me feel comfortable and confident.

Child acting is no different from Adult acting. Age is only a number. The elements are exactly the same. Chemistry, objective, levels, emotions. Acting is for all ages equally. Kids are at most times even more open to learn than adults. Not as many bad habits. Again as with any performance medium one must be fearless. I am impressed every single time I teach children. They give all of themselves without even knowing it. And the ones who don't at first, end up finding their way with my methods and energy. There is always common ground.

Keith is a great acting coach. My daughter feels that she has been able to learn and grow in just a couple of months. She says that she is able to articulate exactly what she needs to do and how she should approach her assignments clearly, and that his assignments are well conceived and valuable. We highly recommend Keith!
Victor M.
Great experience, Keith made me feel at ease from the very first lesson. He’s very knowledgeable and patient. I look forward to every class I have with him.

"Alex is quick to asses the essence of a scene. This makes her an ideal addition coach. Not only that, but her background in classical theatre really sets her apart from other coaches I've worked with. She gets tone, she gets, comedy, she gets characters. Alex turned my audition from a flat/static piece to something with depth and charisma. Highly recommend."
