About Rocky

I'm a musician by trade, a music teacher by profession. Music is a great art form. I play a few instruments, but my main instrument is the guitar. Music performance is a fantastic form of fun which is part of playing a musical instrument - you must learn how to play a musical instrument before you can perform well with it. These two elements go hand in hand, and it is my desire to help my students understand this, and ultimately help them achieve this musical goal - playing a musical instrument well, and perform with it. I have been teaching since right out of high school some twenty-five years ago. My teaching career started at the college level where I had a privilege of tutoring college students computer software and hardware courses. My music teaching career started shortly after ...

When you first meet Tony you sense immediately his passion and love for music; this comes through in his teaching style and attitude. Our 2 daughters (ages 13 and 11) have been taking lessons from Tony for about 3 months and we are definitely seeing improvements in their abilities. He has a knack for challenging them without them really knowing that's what he's doing--he pushes (gently) on them to reach their potential. Our girls enjoy taking lessons from Tony and look forward to seeing him each week, they practice without being asked (most days) and look forward to learning more interesting and challenging music. I would absolutely recommend Tony as an instructor for children or adults.

Tony has been teaching my 8 year old grand-daughter, Nevea, for about 6 months. Tony knows how to effectively teach younger children and has the patience needed to know the correct learning pace that each student can deal with. Nevea loves it when Tony will occasionally accompany her with the guitar. I sit in on most of the lessons and enjoy listening to the interaction between teacher and student.
I would recommend Tony as a teacher for students of any age.

Tony is great! He helped expand my range and over come the enormous amount of stage fright I battled for years in just a small amount of time. His lessons helped establish my music on a more professional level and broadened my picture of the music industry. I wouldn't recommend anybody else! He is very motivating and inspirational, and you will definitely grow through his lessons.

Natasha W. Clearwater, FL

I have written, produced, directed and starred in over 11 stage productions throughout the United states. I have been acting for over 20 years and still have a heavy passion for it. I love teaching others how to bring characters to life and pushing them to expand and reach levels that they have no idea they are capable of. Working with me will be fun, challenging, hard work and huge reward. Let's grow together!

About Natasha

My name is Natasha and I am a certified tutor in reading, math, writing, language and grammar just to name a few subjects. I enjoy helping and watching children gain confidence in areas that were once a challenge. I make learning fun and comprehensive, but most of all memorable. I promise you won't be disappointed. Thanks!!

Stephen D. Saint Petersburg, FL

Most of my training was done by a Stanislavsky purist, and my own acting philosophy generally conforms to that. I've also had experience with Meisnerian technique, but don't generally conform to that as much. For me, acting is all about understanding and relating to your character and their worldview, almost as though they were a person you were learning to impersonate. Provided the playwright has done his job, they will be detailed enough for this to happen.

About Stephen

My name is Stephen Paul Dieter, and I have a Bachelor of Arts in Theatre from Eckerd College. I'm not going to lie, I'm very new to the idea of teaching my craft; I have done it before, but only as an assistant, so I don't have a great deal of experience. I have studied under some great people though, and I like to think that I have a good grasp on the kind of mentality it takes to perform well. I love teaching acting; dialoguing with people, hashing out motivation and acting choices, showing them the wonders that come with walking in someone else's shoes for a while. If you've ever wondered what it's like to act, I can help show you. Believe me when I say, anyone can act, because everybody already does. If you're already a colleague, perhaps I can provide you with a fresh eye, or a new ...

Carrie H. Largo, FL

I have been acting in musical theatre since 2008 and straight plays since 1991. I have been in a few commercials, was featured on the Conan O'Brien Show as an extra, did re-creation for a pilot to air on Spike, was a featured extra on a new show for the ID Network, and have been in many student films in roles from leads to background. I will help you learn your scene, get ready for an audition, or help you understand your motive.

About Carrie

I am an avid learner who is fluent in many different areas. I have an AS in EMS, worked as an EMT for over 15 years, have been studying dance and musical theatre for over 20 years, been watching and teaching children since 1991, and am very passionate about passing my knowledge on to others.

3 Drama Games for Learning Method Acting
Method acting requires you to fully embrace your transformation into your character. To create an authentic experience for your audience, you need to lose the speech inflections, facial expressions, and physical mannerisms that wouldn't make sense. For example, when an actor plays a depressed man, his cynical speech won't be convincing if he delivers it with perfect, confident posture. When Hollywood stars stay in character between takes, or improv comedians wear disguises to interact with un

Careers in Acting: On Stage and Behind the Scenes
Directors, flymen, producers, actors, and even box office staff – there are so many options available to those who have a passion for the performing arts industry. All careers in acting for stage are linked by one thing: a shared love and appreciation for creating live theater. Because of the associated pressures, and long and surprisingly unsociable hours related to the industry, many people who maintain careers in acting do so because they love what they do.
