About William
Hello everyone. I have a bachelor's degree in Vocal Performance from Valley Forge Christian College and I have been performing since I was three years old. I play several instruments and have learned the key skills needed to be a successful musician in any genre. With five years teaching experience and a willingness to learn, I have discovered new ways to help my students become better musicians. I can show you the ways to hone your skills through different drills and practice strategies. Also, I can teach you ways to keep your instrument working at top shape by keeping your physical health in
good condition. I want to teach you what you want to know with a little push to expand your abilities. I can also give you great tips ln running, and help you with your biblical studies. I hope to hear from you soon.

About Emma
My name is Emma and I teach beginning to intermediate acting. I also teach those who are interested in it as a hobby. I love to share my knowledge and be part of someone's improvement. I am very enthusiastic about my craft and want to help others cultivate their passion. Art takes skill and patience, often regardless of talent. I am a firm believer that we can all do much more than we ever imagined if we just stop telling ourselves what we can't do.

About me: I am an actress, singer, dancer, and director. I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts Summa Cum Laude from The Hartt School of Music, Dance,
and Theatre. I have been training in the performing arts since 2000. I have been singing for 15 years, dancing for 12 years, and acting for 7 years. I have studied at The Hartt School; Circle in the Square Theater School; Einhorn School for the Performing Arts; Ballet Arts City Center; Boston Ballet; Bossov Ballet Theater and Boston Conservatory. I have had extensive experience with children and teaching. I have received counselor and leadership training at a sleep over summer camp where I was also a counselor for a year. I have also lifeguarded and taught swimming for three years at a private club. I have had various opportunities in and out of college to teach ballet and theatre to beginners. During my final semester in college I was able to direct and teach intermediate to advanced actors as well.

Performing Credits: REGIONAL: Love's Labour's Lost (Rosaline) Capital Classics Theatre Company. Othello (Bianca) Capital Classics Theatre Company. The Nutcracker (Cavalry) Boston Ballet. EDUCATIONAL: A Little Night Music (Countess Charlotte Malcolm), Reefer Madness (Placard Girl and Ensemble), Metamorphoses (Aphrodite and Ensemble), Company (Joanne), Bob: A Life in Five Acts (Ensemble), The Dining Room (Various Characters) and Picasso at the Lapin Agile (Accordionist) The Hartt School.

Roberta is amazing! I went to her for a little more than 3 years for voice (and piano for a little bit) and she is very helpful, skilled, friendly, knowledgable, and fun. She helped me get into my top choice college as a choral music major with a full tuition scholarship and supported me the entire way. Roberta knows how to work with any voice with any level of experience of any age. Not only is Robera a fantastic teacher; she is also very understanding and a great person to talk to. I would highly recommend her to any student in the area.

About Alec
Hello! I have been teaching the fundamentals of classical singing for many years now and I have received both a Bachelor of Music and Master of Music in vocal and opera performance. I promote a fun and healthy learning environment and make sure that my students learn the technical fundamentals in breathing, relaxation, production, and projection while also enjoying the lessons! I teach all styles of singing and enjoy doing it very much. My classical and operatic training has given me a wealth of vocal knowledge and allows me to make sure all other styles of singing are done as easily and h
ealthfully as possible allowing my students to express their talents as much as they can for the least amount of effort.

Alec is an excellent teacher. Not all talented performing artists and/ or musicians have the ability to teach well . Alec is really remarkable in his ability to assess individual ability and learning needs and to implement a plan of instruction based on sound theory. He is professional, courteous, reliable and well informed. What else is there?

6 Mistakes You’re Making on Your Acting Resume
Professional actors often can’t help but feel a little powerless when it comes to the process of auditioning and booking jobs. Sure, from the outside people think that actors have some say in creative aspects, but your input and personal preferences are really quite insignificant in the process (well, not until you're on a Brangelina level at least). So while you're on your way to superstardom, it's smart to leverage the opportunities at hand. The first area you have control of as an actor is t
Top 5 Wildest Method Acting Techniques in Hollywood History
If you've ever watched an actor disappear into their role, shedding genuine tears or adopting mannerisms that aren't their own, then you've seen method acting techniques in action. Most people think of this approach as "becoming a character," and some actors do take that literally, pretending to actually be the person they're playing.  Method acting is taught everywhere from Hollywood to Broadway. But a few notable actors are well-known for taking it to award-winning extremes, making enormous p
Contemporary Dance for Beginners: What Do You Need to Know?
Contemporary dance. You’ve probably seen it on famous dance television shows like So You Think You Can Dance or Dancing with the Stars, but do you actually know what contemporary dance is? With roots in several different styles of dance, like ballet, hip hop, and modern dance, contemporary dance emerged in the mid-1900s and quickly became one of the most popular dance styles in the Western world.  If you are interested in any kind of dance, studying contemporary dance for beginners is a great wa
