Great teacher. Gets you started from the first lesson!

Amber is simply the best. She has a knack for determining my level and knows how far to push me in practices and recommending homework. Her experience serves her well. She is inspiring, motivating and blunt which goes a long way because she is very directed at her constructive criticism and points that need to be improved.
Aadhav
Amber is an amazing teacher who is kind and appreciates the student. She teaches with great passion and makes the student feel the music. I could see my son progressing already and his confidence level has gone up. He shows great interest and practices more than before!

Teresa is a very knowledgeable and talented teacher! I have learned so many new techniques with sewing and clothing design thanks to her! She is very patient, kind, and dedicated to making sure her students acquire the skills they need to be successful. She thoroughly explains the projects we are working on as well as gives a clear demonstration on any project we are working on. Her in home studio is beautiful! It is quiet, clean, and organized. I truly enjoy my visits there! I’m very lucky that I found Teresa through Take Lessons and I’m so thankful to have her as my sewing guru!
Paige L.
Theresa was amazing is all I can say. My daughter needed a choreographed ballet program in three days and she pulled it together and made extra time to fit her in so she could perfect it. I should say my daughter has not done ballet since the start of the pandemic. I am so thankful for her.
Alec S.
Teresa is an incredibly knowledgeable and considerate teacher! We took ten Salsa lessons with her, coming in with no dancing experience and leaving feeling comfortable and confident showing off a myriad of awesome moves! We would highly recommend her!

Going to an audition but can't find an acting monologue that shows off your skill? I am here to help! I have been coaching monologues for 5 years in Chicago and NYC, and in that time I have collected a monologue database of hundreds of quality monologues from plays. Together, we will find and perfect material that you love.

I create an individualized program based on your needs as an actor. Want help finding a monologue but don’t need coaching? Have a monologue you love and want one coaching session to clean it up? Want ten coaching sessions to prepare for a special audition? Let's talk and make the best program for you!

About Morgan

Morgan is such an amazing teacher and does a great job making you feel comfortable and finding exercises and approaches that will work for you specifically no matter what your goals are. She's helpful, flexible, knowledgable, and so nice. Cannot recommend her enough!
Sean
Caring, Observant, and always supportive. Morgan is possessed with an incredible desire to draw out an actor's best instincts while also offering them new ways of approaching text when an actor might be stuck. My experiences with her are both highly productive and easy going.
Henry
Unlike many acting coaches Morgan actually knows what she’s doing. She brings great energy and can figure out what a monologue/scene needs to bring it to the next level. After being burned by so many acting coaches in my life I’m so relieved to have found someone like Morgan. Gets to the point, clearly talented, no funny business — she’s the real deal.

Bonnie
I was looking for a vibrant, fun piano teacher for my kids as they were not motivated by strict teachers who also taught them boring songs they could not relate to. What a gift of a teacher we found in Catherine. Not only is she warm, kind, caring with an easy rapport for kids and adults alike but she is also an excellent piano and voice instructor. This talented lady is a professional singer too who is well versed in Broadway show tunes and opera too. She also instill her students with a sense of musical rhythm and is holistic in her approach to kids who might need a little physical warm up before class in order to attend better. Catherine’s voice is magnificent and we were fortunate enough to attend a show where she played the lead for The Taming of the Shrew.
She is a professional voice and classical opera teacher too and this complements her piano instruction .. A perk is she can travel to your home or does lesions in her own home . In addition
is a passionate, excellent voice teacher for anyone who is looking to hone their vocal skills and talents. I wholeheartedly recommend Catherine - her lessons are more than just teaching - she is a true mentor and educator in every sense of the word.

Extremely caring and knowledgeable. My grandchildren loved her while we were taking lessons. We only stopped because they live too far away. I highly recommend Catherine!!

Shauna is spectacular! She is a highly experienced acting teacher and super knowledgeable. She creates a safe and comfortable space yet still challenges you to be a great actor. I’ve had many acting teachers and she is at the very top! She helps me with private vocal work and I also take her scene class. Excellent excellent teacher - can’t recommend her highly enough!
Karen
I decided to to acting lessons after 35 years of NO acting. I loved Shauna’s class and highly recommend her as a teacher. She had amazing improv exercises that led up to great monologues and scene work. Her criticism and suggestions were firm yet very encouraging and constructive. It was a very good experience. She is extremely knowledgeable
Joan
I had the great good fortune to hear about Shauna last year and have been taking an acting class with her on Zoom since then. She works with all levels and has a keen eye, kind heart, and gentle way of bringing every level of actor to a deeper, genuine way of expression with layer upon layer of development of character. Her classes have also included a wide range of exercises to connect us with our voice and body, something I had not had the benefit of getting in other scene study classes and workshops. I'm looking forward to studying with her in person. I wish I'd have found her sooner!

We've been doing a lot of work on accent training that is going well as she can pick up on things I didn't know existed; as well as helping me work through the little things you wouldn't think about in commercial and monologue work; as well as basic concepts that I needed more practice in.
All around great instruction."
