About Ali
Ali has had music in her life since she was in the crib. She has performed professionally in the musical theatre world and she has studied in several universities for Musical Theater, Jazz, Pop, Blues, and R&B. Since the age of sixteen, she has been selected to sing as a guest soloist for venues such as Spivey Hall, Georgia World Congress Center, and Georgia Tech Hotel Conference Center. Ali has also sung for many movies and recordings, and recently recorded a demo for David Foster, Barbra Streisand, and Andrea Bocelli and recently toured as a pianist for "The Women of Ireland."

o.

Ali is also known for playing piano. She received her minor in Piano Performance within a year at Shorter College under Helen Ramsaur. She has been playing since she was five years old and has accompanied many people and musical productions.

Some of Ali's major influences include:

Linda Eder, Aretha Franklin, Jennifer Hudson, Lena Horne, Judy Garland, Whitney Houston, Billie Holliday, and Lara Fabian, Barbra Streisand

*** Lesson Details ***
Ali loves to share her passion of music to the world and especially through her students. She loves to share new ideas and nuances along with the basics and fundamentals of technique. Although practice can be boring for the student, asking a student to pick at least one song to work on can help the student and the teacher have fun and learn at the same time. After a few months, not only will her students have fun, but they will learn how to be a better person and musician.

Home Studio: Baby Grand Piano, Living room, Stands, metronome

*** Travel Equipment ***
Just the music I assign and their appropriate instrument

About Amy
I have been a voice, acting, and teacher of creative arts for over 25 years. My background includes ten years of classical voice training with Maestro Julio Berrocal, as well as vocal training through the Feldenkrais approach with Marcy Lindhiemer. In acting, I have studied with renowned Stanislavsky scholar Sonia Moore and Master acting teacher of the Strasberg Method, Marcia Haufrecht. I received a B.A. For comparative literature and creative writing at the State University of New York at Purchase and have recently completed my Master's degree in social work at Walden University.
I believe, within all of us, Is the ability to express something distinctive and original. I work to help students discover their unique voice, whether it be through singing, acting, or writing. I share with my students an array of tools to gain the ability
and confidence to achieve their goals. I empathize deeply with the challenges students may face when pursuing a life in the creative and performing arts, having worked professionally in those areas for most of my adult life. I believe it is the teacher's job to respect each student's individual process of learning.
My students have gone on to become recording artists, Broadway performers, movie actors, Blues and cabaret artists, and published writers.

*** Lesson Details ***
Voice
I am an empathetic teacher, sensitive to the student's individual process of learning. My singing lessons usually start with breathing and relaxation exercises. Vocal technique exercises come next. When the student is fully warmed up, we will begin to work on songs. It is important that students be a part of the process of picking material since the more personally they respond to the material the more apt they are to become engaged in their lessons. After three to six months beginning students will have gained an understanding of the fundamentals of breathing, relaxation, and basic performance skills. With more advanced students the focus will be on range extension and the on-going development of vocal style through song interpretation and performance related exercises.
Acting
As an acting teacher and coach, I tailor my classes to the needs of each student. I utilize improvisatory and sensory techniques to help unleash spontaneity. I also encourage the students to use their personal experiences as a way to access a full range of emotions. I enjoy working with the student on script analysis, so as to discover the underlying motivations of the character the student is working on.
Creative and Lyric Writing
I use prompts as a way to get the student writing. Often, I will ask the student to write for stretches of time without editing themselves. It is important to unleash imagination before beginning the process of editing. Many times it is the unexpected that is the most compelling.

*** Studio Equipment ***
home- 10 minutes away from Manhattan with piano, seating for parents
-practice studio seating for parents

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide a piano, cd/mp3 player and an large library of songbooks to work from. The student should bring sheet music of songs they want to work on and a recording device.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in teaching how to sing rock, pop, musical theater, jazz, cabaret, and blues without hurting the voice as well as method acting instruction.

About Maria
MISSION STATEMENT:

The mission of my studio is to create well-rounded, educated musicians who will always have a lifelong passion for the art no matter their long-term goals. I strive for my students to be:

(1) Lifelong learners who develop successful learning habits.
(2) Creative and critical thinkers who will become effective communicators.
(3) Responsible and respectful members of society who respect other cultures.
(4) Able to set short-term and long-term goals and be able to see them through to their success.

TEACHING PHILOSOPHY:

It is of the utmost importance that my students are well-educated in their chosen instrument; they must know and understand music and music-making. Students who can play are a dime a dozen, but students who understand the music they are playing are often hard to find. I teach students to kno
w music thoroughly, not just to “play.” I desire my students to comprehend elements of the score, to use their bodies effectively to make good sound, and to interpret music creatively and according to historical performance practices across all genres of music. Thus, I give students a purposeful education in technique, quality literature, performance and artistry, music theory, and music history.

Although students differ in ability and development, I maintain high expectations for our students. I expect attention and respect in lessons, faithful and diligent practice, careful adherence to instructions, and an “I’ll-do-my-best” attitude. If students regularly meet these expectations, then they will excel to the level that they are able. It is my joy to help students master their music, to do the best they can, and to strive for and achieve excellence.

Lastly, I want students to enjoy and appreciate their instrument, music, and music-making; and I know as as a teacher, I am very influential in making this happen. Students develop enjoyment of music by understanding music, experiencing success in music, being exposed to good and varied genres of music, and receiving instruction from a teacher who is enthusiastic and encouraging. It is my goal to provide all of these opportunities for students, and as a result their lives will be enriched as they enjoy their instrument.

Experienced Music teacher of 8 years available for eager students of all experience levels and ages!

I love working with my students. Watching them succeed at what they do is what makes my day great. I always love to have a fun atmosphere around me and enjoy every minute it.

I miss Amber's piano lessons, which I discontinued only because our schedules no longer meshed. She made learning fun, gave me helpful memory tricks, and accommodated my needs as a beginning student, even though I am an adult. I was satisfied with my progress and long to take more lessons. Being able to play even simple pieces gave me great joy and added another dimension to my life. She has my recommendation.

If you are looking to pursue an acting career or if you just want to boost your confidence in public, this is the class for you! Experienced acting coach of 3 years,background acting experience, national drama competition winner 2011, President of Drama Club, and I won Best Personality in high school (wink). I specialize in improv, stage performance, dramatic monologues, and background casting calls. Ages 7-18. Lessons are customized and catered to the needs/goals of each student. I love to combine classic techniques with a few modern spins. So what are you waiting for? Lights....Camera....ACTION!

About Naquasha
I am a lover of the arts! Since I was a little girl I've been in a number of musicals and plays. In 2011, I was talented enough to travel to Los Angels, CA to compete in a national drama competition. I placed 2nd in the improv category. Although I am not interested in pursing acting as a full time career, it is a skill that I hold close to my heart.
I attended Claflin University where I received my Bachelor's in Early Education. My passion for teaching has then led me to become an AmeriCorp member where I was privileged enough to work in public schools with high risk youth teaching them ELA and life skills. Through Take Lessons I aspire to combine my theater knowledge and teaching experience to give my students the best resource possible.

I coach children ages 7-18 and all levels of experience but with a focus on beginners. I have been
an acting coach for 3 years and I have had students land minor roles in productions in the Southeast area. I focus on stage presence, technique, articulation and projection, memory, film and tv slating/audition critique, and personal confidence.

My passion for learning and performing is what makes this venture a special one. I hope that you or your child decides to take a lesson with me. I know it will be an unforgettable experience.

I have been acting my entire life since 9 months old. I played leading role in “Dekalb elementary” an Oscar nominated short film. I was a series regular on all four seasons of HBO hit series “East bound and Down” and most recently The hit “Cobra Kai”. I can help prepare you for an audition, teach basics or even advise you on life choices that will be conducive to perusing acting.

About Bo
I’m laid back and open to trying new things! Each student learns differently so I’m always open to creating a curriculum that fits your needs. If you wish to have a complementary meeting/consultation before you book your first lesson then I will happily accommodate that! Search me on IMDB (for acting) or The Berrics and Thrasher (for skating)

Want to hit the stage and be in the spotlight, but don't know where to begin? Feel like you know your casting "type", but want to expand your possibilities? Is performing Shakespeare your worst nightmare? No problem! Within no time at all, I'll make sure that you'd feel confident to rock an audition, know what to expect for a rehearsal process, and how to hone your craft so you'll be prepared for anything a director throws your way. I've studied firsthand with Shakespearean actors who've performed at the Globe Theatre, Musical Theatre performers from both Broadway and the West End, and some of the best improv performers America has to offer. We can figure out which acting approach works best for you, and how you can effectively expand your repertoire. Let's get to work!

About Caroline
Hi there! My name's Caroline, and I'm a working actor and teacher in Chicago. I received my BA in Theatre Arts at the University of Mississippi, and then pursued my Masters in Musical Theatre from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, currently ranked 3rd best Performing Arts Institution in the world. I want to make sure that no matter where you are in your singing or acting career, you will become confident in your skills and be ready to face the world and show just what you uniquely have to offer!

I’ve studied extensively with singing professionals, running the gamut. From members of the National Opera Association to certified Estill Method teachers to pop artists, I take my vast array of knowledge to make sure I find a method and practice that works best for YOU.

Voice students can expect a noticeable improvement in their vocal t
echnique. Whether you’re looking to expand your range, learn how to “belt” or sing classically, or be able to create a true acting connection with a song, I can help you! We’ll start by diagnostically looking at your voice, breaking any “bad habits” and creating a solid foundation on which to build.

I also teach acting, and strive to make sure I meet whatever are my student’s custom criteria: whether that is nailing an audition or callback, how to fully create your own unique approach to a character, or how to make yourself a more flexible and dynamic actor as a whole. I also love helping people crack the daunting code that is Shakespeare and making it more relatable and approachable.

Performing arts teachers are basically cheerleaders, therapists, and mentors all rolled into one; and I hope that I can be that for you! I love teaching because nothing is quite as exhilarating as seeing firsthand how much someone can improve in their skill. So if this sounds like a good fit for you, shoot me a message and let's see just how far you can go to improve yourself and achieve your goals!
