Chelsea has been a wonderful acting instructor for my daughter. She covers what my daughter will need to know for her future in acting and really helps her understand what she needs to do. She also does more than just teach, she has been invaluable to different resources and really has my daughter's best interest in mind with everything she does. My daughter is more outgoing and not afraid to be silly in front of others anymore. She can't wait to do more acting because of Chelsea's teaching and support.

Chelsea has been giving my 14 year old son acting lessons. She is wonderful. He is a new student to acting and she is not only speaking to him as an educator but as someone with her own experience as a young though very knowledgeable, actor. My son is very shy and introverted and this is a great way for him to come out of his shell and we couldn't have picked a better instructor. She listens to his concerns and gives him great advice. We will definitely be signing up for additional lessons with Chelsea!!

A great, intuitive teacher/weight-loss coach. She knows what she's talking about and is capable of working with you to create a plan or help you with the path you're already on. Offers advice and guidance but doesn't force you into any dietary dogma. Makes herself available in-between lessons if need be. Knowledgeable, funny, and easy to talk to.

Whether you want to cook fabulous holiday meals, healthier weekday dinners, or gluten-free baked goods, I can equip you with the skills and know-how to make you more confident in the kitchen.

Joy was great to work with! She was always courteous, informative and prompt from the first email to our last lesson. Joy was very patient with me and even followed up with an email of additional information to help with my cooking. I would highly recommend her as a teacher and I look forward to working with her again in the future.

I've know Sara a long time. She is a joy of a person and a delightful singer. We actually met as kids at Interlochen Arts Camp when we were in middle school. Her passion for singing shined bright that summer. Our paths crossed again when we were at McGill University for our Masters of Music in Vocal Performance. There we had the chance to perform side by side in a number of projects that spanned opera, musical theater, straight theater, and baroque music. Everyday Sara brought a positive attitude and enthusiasm to all she did. I know she will be an awesome teacher for you because I have learned from Sara myself. Watching her perform Susana from the Marriage of Figaro was an absolute lesson in beautiful singing, truthful performance, and shockingly beautiful recitativo.

Sara is a wonderfully fun person. She will always make sure that lessons are productive, and informative, but also fun! She is absolutely amazing at teaching kids of all ages (and kids at heart). I know Sara will be a great teacher for you.

Sara and I did our MMus in Vocal Performance together at McGill University in Montreal, QC. Sara is an amazing colleague, always encouraging, down-to-earth, sincere, and smiling. Her performances are always a pleasure - she has a stunning voice, solid technique, and is extremely versatile (musical theatre, pop, opera.... you name it!). I highly recommend Sara's studio to any young singer who wants a well-rounded vocal training program.
