Serena is great. She is patient but pushes you just enough to see results. She helps you with singing technique as well as with techniques to make the song more genuine and authentic.

She is a great teacher. She gave me several tips and exercises that were very helpful. She was very understanding when I had some computer glitches. Very friendly also. Highly recommend!

Serena immediately understood what I wanted out of lessons and gave me very useful on target skills to think about. I like how she teaches with the students priorities in mind yet delivering all her experience in knowledge. I hope to continue with Serena in lessons for a long time to come.

Private Acting Teacher

Acting students will receive instruction customized for their individual needs and skill level, drawing on a variety of techniques, including Linklater (physical and vocal work), Stanislavski, Meisner, and Grotowski, Shurtleff, among others. Students can work privately on audition skills, including monologues and cold reading, as well as scene work, character building and basic principles of acting. The first step to great acting is a free body and voice, allowing full expression of of emotional life of the character!

About Wendy

I've been teaching private vocal instruction since 2003, and opened my own studio in 2008. I love helping people find their true, authentic voice, which I feel is essential not only for singers but many other people as well! Singing is a great joy, and the voice is one of our primary modes of expre

We love Lauren. She is making violin a great experience for our daughter (11 yrs old). She is very thorough and encouraging, and introduces interesting music that is fun and challenging for a beginner student. Our daughter says she can truly feel her own improvement, and is really happy to have additional lessons with Lauren, beyond what she receives in school. Lauren is flexible with scheduling and very reliable, and we intend to stick with her - and with the violin- for the duration!

Lauren is an awesome violinist. I worked with her in a show and watched her tackle many different styles of music, improvise with other musicians, and collaborate on new material. I would recommend her to anyone!

Lauren Thomas is an excellent musician with a tremendous amount of patience and a seemingly boundless supply of talents. As a fellow musician who has played professionally alongside Lauren, I have witnessed first hand her skilled mastery of both the flute and the violin -- as intuitive as she is technically proficient. Apart from her musical abilities, she's kind, fun and sensitive and would make for either a great beginner violin teacher or as an instructor for someone with intermediate skills looking to expand their abilities. Cannot recommend her highly enough! Whether you're seeking instruction in the flute or the violin, Lauren's the woman for the job.

Online Acting Teacher

Acting with ease is mostly about really being relaxed and at peace while fulfilling a role. The best acting comes from having passion and confidence in the choices that you have made while you have prepared. The greatest obstacle? The inner critic, the inner skeptic, the inner dragon that works hard to put on the breaks and make us question ourselves and whether it is safe or not to let go. My job is to help you feel safe enough to be able to trust your creative instincts and your natural impulses. I'm more of a kind, compassionate, understanding and forgiving coach who nurtures the talent that is already in there. We all know you've got it -- who are we kidding?

Online Acting Teacher

I'm an experienced Teacher with over 10 years of coaching. My clients have gone on to be not only series regulars (Past and current) but stars in award winning films. What I love is watching a client go from not knowing to mastering.

My methodology is influenced by legendary Uta Hagen, my own acting coach, the renowned Roy London, and my contemporary mentor, the incredible Howard Fine. My personal experience as a young actor inspired me to create the kind of class I desired as a young actor, taught with respect for an actor’s intelligence and the “master” within them, empowering them with the tools, techniques, and discipline they need to succeed as professional actors.

My focus is scene study with the emphasis on script analysis and AUDITION TECHNIQUE. I’ve been called a “Actor Whisperer.” My passion and gift is working with actors of all ages and backgrounds which is why I work with them exclusively!

Acting lessons with me are unique because they come from the experience I've had as a successful working actor with 25 years of experience in film, tv, theater and radio in the United States and Latin America.

Not only I can teach you acting techniques but the nuts and bolts of show business. These lessons will deepen your skills in the craft of acting. We'll cover in our sessions Acting Basics, Voice, Various Acting Techniques, Differences in acting for theater vs film, How to improve your audition skills, Self Tapes, Preparation and research for your shoot, Work Ethics and intricacies of the film Industry. Students will approach this through the analysis of films, scene work, interactive debate and reading assignments.

"I am thrilled whenever I get the chance to work with Ben. He always manages to help me not only to do well in shows, but to improve as an actor in general. He has a wide range of knowledge in the theater, so I am able to learn about many aspects of acting and theatre in general. As a director, Ben not only has a great vision, but can also explain to the actors what that vision is, and how they can best achieve it. He is always willing to answer questions and help me in any way that he can. He makes the people around him feel comfortable and safe, so they don't feel judged when experimenting on the stage. He inspires me every time we work together, and offers endless encouragement. Without great teachers like Ben, I never would have had the tools, or confidence, to follow my passion of theatre."
