Anna is a wonderful teacher! This is my first experience taking singing lessons, and she has been so patient with me, and I have already learned so much in just two lessons. She is very knowledgeable about the voice and gives clear, easy-to-follow instruction. I'm looking forward to continuing learning from her!

Private Acting Teacher

Nationally-certified teacher of the Michael Chekhov Technique of acting, Kara is a professional stage and screen actress, director, producer, and theatre educator. She has appeared on screen in Allegiant and Logan Lucky, and on numerous stages around her home base of Atlanta, GA. She holds a BFA and an MFA in acting, and has taught at The University of Georgia, Kennesaw State University, and the University of Southern Mississippi to name a few.

Though steeped in Chekhov's psycho-physical approach to acting, Kara is an intuitive teacher who shapes the lesson to the student and his or her needs. She is also an experienced and adept improviser and experienced in the Linklater approach to vocal training.

Kara is passionate about acting, about the arts broadly, and about teaching. Her greatest joy is working with actors to find those moments of transcendence that define great performances.

About Kara

I'm not going to lie to you. It's not easy being an actor. It's vulnerable. It's unstable sometimes. It forces you to confront your weaknesses. But, because I will NEVER lie to you, you'll know exactly where you stand, what you need to work on, how much you're improving. I'm not saying I'm tough or

Kara is a wonderful instructor. She’s incredibly hands on and knows all about the subject she’s teaching. She’s also very respectful and makes all of her students feel comfortable. The class I took from her was fun and inspiring.

Kara teaches Checkov, a unique, interesting physical acting style. Checkov helps significantly with versatility and choices. Kara makes learning fun and gives you a great workout mentally and physically. She helps students grow passionately in acting.

Excellent first lesson
Mike O.
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.

Ms. D was extremely patient and thorough with me. And her warm demeanor helped me calm my nerves and loosen up. I appreciate all the valuable insight and direction she gave me.
Kenjah
I had such an amazing experience training with Detrece! She always has such sweet positive energy. I was so happy that with me being more of an advanced singer she was able to teach me about my voice and tips that I never knew! I only had 5 lessons and still had a vocal breakthrough where she helped me realize my range is wider than I thought. She gave me more confidence and is always seeking to share opportunities with me. I’m so grateful to her!!

"Carissa always gives me feedback in a very encouraging way. Once I go over a monologue or a script once, she'll talk about some of the characteristics that I might be able to adopt in order to be more convincing, but she'll also tell me which parts she liked, which parts I was hitting on, but didn't quite get, and anything else. She's super understanding, and she'll talk me through any parts that I was having trouble with extensively until she feels that I understand and am comfortable with the material and the directions. 1000 stars all the way!"

"Simply AMAZING! Keith offers a comforting and open environment in which a performer can grow. I came to Keith in need of help for my college auditions, and in that short period of time was able to grow as a performer and get a taste of the professional world of theatre. Not only did he aid me in my audition pieces, he also gave me advice and insight of what it's like to go to school for the performing arts. I cannot thank Keith enough. With his help, I was accepted into New York University Tisch School of the Arts and AMDA. Great coach with life long skills, with Keith you will only grow."

"I have had the opportunity to learn acting with Gina and it has been great so far. When I signed up for the lessons, I signed up with Gina because of her credentials as I never had an encounter with her. From my first class itself she has taught me a lot about acting specially stage acting and that too with great enthusiasm. I now feel like pursuing it further. She is quite knowledgeable specially in her field and every moment that you are in the class with her, you are learning something new. I would highly recommend her, doesn't matter if you are just getting into the field or trying to set your advanced level stage, her talents will teach you something new that would take you to the next level. I hope you can take advantage of learning from a Great Artist like Gina.
P.S. She is a great Dancer and a great Musician.

Good Luck!"
