Mark H.

La Habra, CA

I have directed and performed dramatic roles for over 3 decades. From comedic timing to high drama, I carefully direct and coach the actor to be authentic and effective. As a musician, I specialize in timing and nuance.

About Mark

Classically trained with years of performance and practical experience. I know how to help you make the music that you want to make. I am well-versed in nearly all music styles from classical to contemporary/pop. I am currently active in both piano accompaniment, vocal performance with the Pacific Chorale,
directing a very active north orange county community choir, and directing the choirs and drama department at Tuffree Middle School in Placentia with approximately 150 students in the program.

I recently completed my music credential and have graduate degrees in Education and Music.

I am especially gifted in teaching beginning piano, fundamental vocal production and dramatic presentation. I have extensive experience with the young and beginning acting student and can masterfully explain the dynamics of auditions and performing in the community.

*** Lesson Details ***
I focus on the individual student for curriculum and speed of progress. I utilize Bastien and other music curricula depending on maturity and ability. Within 3 months most students are performing simple songs successfully and within 6 months they have begun to master the more difficult 2nd and 3rd level. I believe in creating opportunities for the student to play in public and successfully perform by playing in small groups and bands. My acting students are taught through monologues and basic acting dynamics along with rehearsing through audition challenges and opportunities in the community.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Separate music room, grand piano, multiple keyboards available.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Professional piano keyboard and sound systems available.

*** Specialties ***
Piano - Foundations, jazz piano, Broadway, easy listening.
Voice - Foundations, breathing, operatic styling, Broadway.

My 10 year old daughter(almost 11) is taking piano lessons. She sings in theater and Mark has her sing along with her playing. She has only taken a few lessons but she loves it and Mark has a great balance of practicing and having fun on the piano.

Public Speaking · In studio
If you have an issue with regards to your confidence when it comes to speaking in public, fear of maybe being misunderstood due to pronunciation of words, and how to create a proper presentation, then this person is whom I would recommend. I remember having all of these issues before joining his class. After all the sessions, you yourself will feel that growth in all of those aspects and the class was seriously entertaining too! The way he lectures in class will make you eventually think that doing presentations and speaking in public will eventually become a "walk in the park" with enough exposure and practice!

Joshua has been a coach of mine for many years. He has helped me build my public speaking, business, and poker proficiency as well as countless personal and professional skills. Joshua has an uncanny ability to make difficult concepts easily understood which has enabled myself to perform at a higher level in a myriad of subject matters. If you are interested in learning a new skill or further improving your expertise in a particular area, I could not recommend a better person than Joshua.

Poker · In home
I owe all of my poker success to this man! From a very young age, he taught me the game. Showing me the importance of being patient, awareness, and how to play the player in front of you instead of the cards in your hands. I would extremely recommend taking this course to any serious poker player who is looking to improve their game in any way!

Hunter S.

Los Angeles, CA

I love sharing the techniques I've honed working with Steppenwolf, Chicago Shakespeare and other Tony award winning theaters. We will work on techniques to "own the space", be heard, quickly drop into a character, raise the stakes, and make choices to create an exhilarating performance.

About Hunter

With both a classical theater and improv comedy background, over the past 15 years, I have performed everything from Shakespeare with Tony Award winning theaters to hit sitcoms on network television.

I love teaching. There are few things as rewarding as being a part of a students development and their personal victories.
Many of my students have achieved notable representation and consistently work. Other students are simply pursuing acting as a passion or a tool to gain confidence. Whatever your goals, if you bring the drive, I promise to get you there ... oh, and we'll have a lot of fu
n on the way. After all, it's called a "play" for a reason.

Hunter was fantastic, he really helped me understand the thought process of going from scratch to building full scenes and also helped me get over my fear of doing improv in a class full of people with the preparation I now have. I would gladly recommend anyone I know who's interested in classes to work with Hunter!
