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.

Whether you are just starting out in your journey as an actor, or you are interested in refining your skills with relevant and applicable concepts and methods, I will devise a program tailored specifically to your aspirations. Character development, objectives, actions, dialogue interpretation, stage movement: just to name a few of the skills we will be studying and honing. We will work on monologues and scenes, both from theatre and film, to explore a variety of acting styles. And if it's Musical Theater you enjoy, we will unpack the elements in that genre, and prep you for auditions. Always, classes are predicated on fun!

She taught the first live class I ever attended. She’s super upbeat and encouraging. I was super nervous with it being my first class, but her positive attitude instantly helped me to feel relaxed. Will definitely work with her again in the future!

She Helps you With singing and acting, She has great presentations prepared for every class and is my favorite teacher for acting and singing!
Hunter
Please disregard my earlier review. I was in Mama Bear mode and after having discussed the matter with Aubrey, I retract my statements. The only suggestion I might make is that she check in with the students about how they felt about their class today? I know time is limited and this would be easy to do in a perfect world. I truly appreciate the way she reached out to me and my child to explain the misunderstanding after the fact.

Jessica
Acting class was so much fun! I wanted to try something different to challenge myself & my friends recommended I try an acting class because I’m so “extra” as they put it. Well I finally got up the nerve to try a class & J was so helpful & worked with me to feel comfortable. He never made me feel like I couldn’t do it, plus it was so fun that I can’t wait to try another class. If you are a beginner like myself than he is the perfect instructor for you.
Tim Jones
I thoroughly enjoyed my class with J. I didn’t know what to expect and was a little apprehensive at first but by the time I finished the session I was at ease. He broke things down to where I could understand being a novice, and made me feel like I belonged! I highly recommend J to anyone who wants to really learn about the true art of Acting!!
