Shelley is a fantastic teacher that I highly recommend!! I have been working with her for almost a year and I always look forward to lessons with her. Prior to Shelley I never really had proper training and was scared to go about the first lesson but she makes you feel extremely comfortable and is super encouraging. about wanting to help achieve your goals. She really takes the time to know you as a student and gears each lesson and exercise to what works best for you and your voice. Being a dancer she relates the exercises into a dance perspective so that I can best understand what she wants me to achieve. As an aspiring professional performer we work on the things one needs in order to prepare for auditions including creating an audition book, resume/headshots, and learning music theory. I definitely recommend her for anyone really wanting to find and use their voice properly!!!
Sophia
Shelley is an amazing teacher! She is always so positive and supportive, and the exercises and songs she has provided have really helped me develop as a singer and musician. As someone who picked up singing after playing a wind instrument for years, I really appreciate how she's able to explain the purpose of each exercise and what aspect of my singing it is working to improve.

I’m a very shy and timid person when I first meet people and it’s something I’ve always struggled with. From the moment Tristan became my teacher though his warm and friendly demeanor helped me get past this struggle almost immediately. He was always willing to teach at a pace that best suited me but also made sure to push me when I needed it. While the lessons with him only lasted for a short period, the experience was worth it. He helped me tune my singing practice to a higher standard and helped me better express the emotions that were being portrayed in each song. Beyond that, he also found moments of fun where we could goof off and relax, even for just a moment, to help calm my anxieties and get me out of my head when I started getting too frustrated or upset with myself for messing up. Despite being on the younger side, Tristan helped me with not only my singing and acting, but helped me better break out of my shell and have more confidence in myself.
Jonathan Stinson, DMA
Tristan was my voice student for 5 years. He has a extensive knowledge of voice technique. He has a very healthy approach to his own singing and he demands the same of his students!
Kim Marie Lesso
Tristan was employed by my Academy as an Assistant Summer Camp Director. His position required him to teach both acting and singing to our students. He also stepped up and took the Director's position staging and choreographing the skits/extrapolations from Musicals the students performed their last day before an audience.

Tristan has a real great intuition as the to style of learner he works with. He is very quick to taylor his lessons to the needs, performance level and learning style of the student.

I highly recommend Tristan Lesso for your Acting or Vocal lesson needs! He just finished Suma Cum Laude with a Master's Degree in Vocal Performance in Musical Theatre at the Number 1 University for his degree...NYU Steinhardt.

I promise you will be a very good actress/actor in very short time professionally. I graduated from Academy of arts 2009 as a professional actor, writer & director. I had two humble trials in cinema. I acted in 12 plays, wrote & directed 6 plays, got 3 national awards (two with writing & directing and one with acting), I taught 112 beginners how to act and more than 505 of them started their career as professional actresses/actors. I depend on a professional system in teaching acting just like Juilliard school & even better, not exaggerating. You can try, I promise you will never regret

Before I begin, you must know that there is no "one way of acting". Each person has their own methods that work for them, and they are discovered along the way. With that being said, one must find the right teacher that is the best fit for them. The Meisner Technique has been taken apart and put back together over the years, I teach it the way that he originally began it... one could also call it The Montes Method. Also, I tap into Strasbourg Technique. As a professional actor and acting coach, you have to keep training to stay on top. To teach acting is not only a pleasure for me, but it's also a must, as acting is my biggest addiction.

"Super Enjoyed our first online class..even with some technical difficulties due to my antivirus software firewall, or browser or the weak wifi in my place or something...Truly enjoyed it. Jason was very kind and patient, while we tried to fix the technical aspect. Once we got started on the phone because video and voice didn't work; I really learned a lot, and gathered insight into Acting that I couldn't get from a book or other classes that I have taken. I'm truly blessed I get the opportunity to work and learn from Jason. I am super excited and can't wait till our next lesson. I will call technical support at Take Lessons to get technical help to fix the issues, and will buy a portable wifi hotspot if I have to solve the video and sound issue. Jason is patient, kind, very nice, professional, extremely knowledgeable, I can't say enough good things. Thank you very much for all your help and your time. I look forward to the journey ahead... Take care. Aloha. -Bobby"

I took one of Monica's one-day performance workshops - her approach helped me become more fully-embodied, and more intimately connected to the stories I wanted to tell in my work. Monica has a unique gift for helping the people she works with open up and find the truth in their own lives, which helps fuel their artistic work. Athletic, bold, and highly recommended."
