About Chris
Hi! Welcome to Take Lessons! Let me start off by saying that I love to teach singing and acting!! I specialize in teaching students from teens to adults but love teaching younger children as well. There is no better feeling than to see a student grow and better themselves artistically and personally. In addition to teaching singing and acting for over 10 years I have performed in numerous Broadway shows, West End shows, and National Tours throughout the US and Canada. I am presently a working actor. I received my education from the University of Michigan's School of Music. Whether you are a first time singer/actor or an established professional I love students who are excited to absorb new ideas and attempt to grow in ways they hadn't thought possible.

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons are unique to each individual. I tend to cater
my lesson plan to each students goals, experience, and age. I believe that there is no one way to teach or one way to learn. Trying numerous exercises and coming up with creative ways to help students assimilate new material and concepts is a core part of my teaching philosophy. Above all learning should be fun and exciting. I will do my best to create a safe open atmosphere where a student of any age level can succeed in achieving their learning goals.

Musical Theatre is my passion and my forte, however in order to teach singing or acting proper technique must be established.

*** Studio Equipment ***
living area open space seating for parents, Keyboard

Chris was very patient and provided great advice, examples and coaching. This is my first voice lesson and I am 54 years old and I was very nervous and unsure, but Chris made me feel comfortable and relaxed. I am looking forward to the next lesson and I am already practicing. My goal is to improve my singing and perhaps one day be on a local stage playing a small part, something that has been in my system for many years! I believe Chris will provide me with the training that may one day assist me in achieving my goal.

I had to learn an Irish dialect for a big audition I was called in for last minute. My friend suggested Erin to help with dialect coaching and audition coaching, and man, I'm so grateful. With Erin's training and expertise, I was able to learn the Irish dialect in an hour and nailed the audition! She has experience with multiple acting and audition techniques...she's able to speak multiple acting "languages". If you're looking for any audition coaching or dialect coaching, I definitely recommend Erin! She knows what she's doing!

I have worked with Erin on several occasions, because she is so wonderful at her job! She has helped me to prepare for numerous auditions, many of which have gone very well as a result. She is an incredible actor herself, and she uses her talent and expertise to help me be the best actor I can be. Finding my super objective in a monologue or scene, the different tactics, focus, awareness, groundedness... these are all things she has helped me to do to strengthen my own work. She is down to earth and open, which makes working with her really easy and comfortable. Performing my work in front of somebody else can be very difficult, because I often question what the viewer will think of me. Not only does Erin help me fight that fear, she helps me find the gratitude and joy in getting to perform. I highly recommend Erin as an acting coach! She’s fantastic!

About Kalyse
I have always loved entertaining. I've appeared in hundreds of productions onstage, on television and on film. I am an accomplished trained singer, pianist, writer, and director and I have been nominated for several awards in acting, and directing. I am a proud graduate of The Second City Detroit trained in improvisation and sketch comedy, and the International Academy of Design and Technology with a B.F.A. in Digital Media Production. I have made it my life's work mastering these fields and have seen the power of the arts and how it can change people.

Vocal students can expect to learn the fundamental techniques of correct singing in order to develop and preserve their voices for a lifetime of singing enjoyment or as a career. I will strengthen each students range, tone, breath, vocal flexibility and theory to take their voice to the
next level. Optional emphasis on music theory, note reading and auditioning is available free of charge and is determined by the student at sign up.

Piano students can expect to learn the fundamental of piano in a fun and challenging way that will focus on note reading, scales and chord building, playing by ear, and sight reading. By combining music theory in your lessons you will be on the road to composing your own music!

Acting students can expect to learn the fundamentals of acting through the combination of scene work, mental and visualization exercises, physical & vocal warm ups, monologues, and audition preparation. Students area of emphasis (film, stage, or audition workshop) must be chosen at sign up and can be changed at any time.

What can I say about Kalyse because there are not enough words to do so, however I will try and sum it up. Kalyse is truly gifted in many areas from acting to musical. Her acting skills are phenomenal and her voice is simply amazing on all levels. She is multitalented, innovative, assertive, and very caring. I would recommend anything on the spectrum for her.

About Aqeela
Aqeela Ali first fell in love with dance at the age of five in Brooklyn, New York. Her earliest memories of dance include learning jazz, tap, and ballet at The Dance Spot, a local dance studio. While attending Talent Unlimited, a performing arts High School in New York, she had the opportunity to go beyond her daily ballet and modern training by studying graham technique with The Martha Graham Dance Company and flamenco with Ballet Hispanico. Growing up in New York City, Aqeela was exposed to Hip-Hop culture and fell in love with the movement and music during her time in High School. After turning 21, she moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career in the commercial dance industry. She has been on the Ellen Show, Hulu, and has danced with a variety of artists including, but not limited to Beyonce, Nick Cannon, Sean Paul, and Kat de Luna.
Af
ter two years of dancing in the industry, Aqeela was certain that her dancing days were over. She was accepted into Teach for America and taught Kindergarten for two years in rural Oklahoma. Starting her own dance club at the school and watching her students blossom and grow inspired her to dance again. The question was...which style?! During Teach for America, she met her husband, a native Atlantan and they moved back to Georgia after their two year commitment. In Georgia, she was introduced to the Calo Gitano Flamenco Dance Academy, which reignited her love and passion for flamenco that she discovered in High School.
Through Calo Gitano, Aqeela met artists from Spain such as Miguel Vargas, Carmen Ledesma, Lydia Caballo, and Daniela Tugues. After a year of studying Flamenco with Calo Gitano, she spent the summer of 2018 at the National Institute of Flamenco studying under Joaquin Encinias. During this time, Miguel Vargas had convinced her that she should move to Seville and train to become a bailaora. So she bought a one way ticket for Spain and in August she found herself studying intensively under Miguel Vargas, Ursula and Tamara Lopez, Lorena Franco, Ana Morales, and Alicia Marquez. Now, in her second year of studying flamenco, Aqeela knows more than ever that she wants to spend her entire life studying and learning this beautiful and passionate form of expression. Her dream is to one day open up her own school where she teaches children a variety of styles they can use to express themselves.

I struggled for years feeling uncoordinated and wildly throwing my hips around whenever I tried dancing with my wife. Aqeela patiently worked with us to help me feel like I actually have control over my body. She taught me the importance of having a variety of moves to match the song/tempo instead of just moving about wildly. I was hesitant to work with someone because I felt very self-conscious but she was so patient and understanding that I was quickly put at ease and ended up really enjoying the experience and wanted more! Her passion for dance is only matched by her ability as all the moves she showed us seemed so flawless and graceful. My version of those same dance moves didn't look quite as graceful but dramatically improved and my wife couldn't be happier!

Its so rare to find a person who is both extremely talented as well as an amazing teacher. I can’t express how much my daughter has learned from Miss Aqeela. Apart from learning a wide variety of dance styles she teaches kids to believe in themselves. We have watched our girl transition from being shy and restrained onstage to one who is confident and captivating to watch. The level of dedication Miss Aqeela shows to every student cannot be overstated!

I’ve never worked with someone as hardworking, and inspiring as Aqueela. We ran an art camp for three summers in a row. She taught up to 60+ kids and is so passionate about dance that these kids just couldn’t wait to come to camp the next day in order to work with her. Parents said they were practicing their moves at home!! You know how hard it is to teach that many kids to do hip hop dance???? 100% participation 100% of the time.

It was amazing. I learned so much as an educator and those kids left the cAmp so proud and eager to learn more about dance because of her. Oh ya and she also led them to design a dance for a showcase for their parents and community.

By far the best dance instructor I have ever worked with and cannot wait to work with her again. When my son grows up I will definitely be reaching out to her so she can teach him the moves.
