Professionals often need help with their speaking voices; they are either "low talkers" or speak with loud monotones and bore their audiences.

Let me help you learn to modulate your speaking voice to advance your career or to help you with a speech problem.

Great teacher. Gets you started from the first lesson!
Andrew
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!

I'm new here! If you're looking to work in TV and film, I teach all about the acting industry! I having decades of experience, having earned my SAG/AFTRA card in 1984! I've worked on over 1,000 TV/ film projects and over 300 commercials!

I give students the correct inside information about the industry, how to get booked, necessary tools, and include insider tips and leads to fast track their careers!

As an Adjunct University Professor for six years, and 15 years teaching at entertainment schools in both CA. and NYC, I enjoyed guiding students to successful careers in television, film, and TV commercials!

I offer classes in proven techniques for TV/film acting, (Screen Acting) as well as courses that are specific for TV commercial acting (Acting in TV Commercials). There IS a big difference between stage, screen, and TV commercial acting, so each course teaches a separate and proven technique!

I also offer classes in cold reading and auditioning skills (Cold Reading Course) ...

I was a former student of Gina's from 2017-2019 in a university setting. I owe a lot of my own personal successes to Prof. Gina. Here classes were always the most informative, fun, and provided the most up-to-date information about the industry and its practices. She combines practical tools for working in Hollywood along with great acting technique and moral ethics. She was and still remains invested in me and my career, and I have her to thank for her knowledge and knowhow for the success I have now as a SAG-AFTRA actor working in this industry. I cannot recommend her further her time and teaching worth every penny!
Megan
Gina is extremely knowledgeable in her craft. I took a wide variety of acting classes taught by her over the span of three years when I was in college, and they are among the most beneficial classes I've had the opportunity to take. She is very clear in her teaching, focusing not only on acting technique, but going through all the survival skills she has accumulated throughout her years working in the industry. By the time I finished the last class I took with her, I felt well-equipped to handle the acting industry! I would recommend Gina to anyone wanting to learn about acting and working in the film industry.
Alexandra Arzaga
Having taken Gina's courses and being taught by her, I have been finding more success in my pursuits. I believe taking her courses has led me to getting booked faster than I thought. Her teachings have proved extremely valuable to me and am so happy to have chosen her to learn from.

April has such precision, kindness and astute ears. Thank you so much for helping me go back to basics, slow myself down and be consistent in my practice!
Mara
I studied with April S. for a year; I see my “great” improvements; breathing, holding notes, and discovering that I wasn’t tone deaf. I loved every second of every minute I spent learning to sing with April S. I plan to take more lessons in the future. It was my joy studying with April S.; it was a life long dream of mine to learn how to sing properly. I’m not where I want to be, but I’m so confident that with more lessons I will achieve everything I want with April S. as my vocal instructor.
