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.

My daughter takes guitar from Maria and I didn’t realize how much she’s progressed until we went to a friend’s recital. 8 months with Maria and my child is leaps and bounds ahead of kids who’ve been taking for 2-3 years. It’s really motivating for her to see. Maria has standards which are non-negotiable but she’s patient and truly guides the kids to success. I’m so happy with our choice as her as a teacher.

Maria has been wonderful with our son. Very motivating and goal based. The recitals blow me away year after year. The progress these kids make with her plus the longevity of her students says a lot.

Hi! I play Marty on the Golden Globe winning show Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. My students of all ages have something in common; they work. Wether your background is theater or film, comedy or drama, amateur or pro; You will learn to use the camera to improve your performance, make strong choices and connect to both your scene partner and the audience.

About Hunter
From the hit TV comedy Crazy Ex-Girlfriend to drama at The Tony Award winning Steppenwolf Theater, my 20 year acting career has taught me many lessons to share. As a working writer/director this has only grown.

I love teaching. There are few things as rewarding as being a part of a students development and their personal victories.
Many of my students have achieved notable representation and consistently work. Other students are simply pursuing acting as a passion or a tool to gain confidence. Whether it's audition prep or personal development, if you bring the drive, I promise to get you to your goals ... oh, and we'll have a lot of fun on the way. After all, it's called a "play" for a reason.

About Valeka H.

Close
Oxford, GA

View Full Profile

Have you always had that itch that makes you stay up late a night dreaming about what your life could be if you followed your dreams? Is your child overly dramatic and they need a creative outlet? No fear, Valeka is here. I'm a professional broadway, tv and film actress. I have over 10 years of experience in teaching acting and I want to teach you how to be comfortable in your skin and follow your dreams!

About Valeka
Affectionately known as “Vivacious V” Valeka J Holt is a critically acclaimed artist! She’s a professor at Georgia College where she teaches acting, content creation and solo show writing. A recent ATL transplant from DC, Valeka has quickly become an ATL favorite. She’s a member of the acting and playwright company at Working Title Playwrights, screened her award-winning film at Screening Room ATL, and has participated in workshops and readings at True Colors, Alliance and Horizon Theatre Companies! 


DC credits include: Nina in “Sunset Baby." Broadway world states: "Valeka J. Holt is astonishing. I predict a great future is ahead of her. One gets to see her transformation from the hardened criminal to that of a young woman who has just lost her mother, when she strips herself from her make-up, wig, and clothes into a bathrobe, sits on
her couch, covers herself in a wrap which was covering the couch and weeps. It's a powerful moment."

Penny in “Father Comes Home from the Wars” at Roundhouse Theatre. The Washington Post’s states “Early receives stalwart support from an ensemble that includes, most notably, Valeka J. Holt as Penny, who, like Odysseus’s Penelope, perseveres valiantly while her man is away. 
DCist states, “Holt is so emotionally invested in her character that by play’s end you feel that you might be watching a very real moment of personal unraveling. A dead ringer for Orange is the New Black’s Uzo Aduba in artistic skill, Holt is a pleasure to watch.  


Other praised performances include her work as Ruth in The Tony Award Winning Arena Stage’s production of “A Raisin in the Sun."

Valeka is an excellent teacher! Her encouraging words and energetic attitude encouraged me to dig deep, step outside my comfort zone and go big. Her great acting advice helped me tremendously prepare for a role I had in a play. She helped me with confidence and understanding each scene. I received many great reviews after the show and I am thankful to Valeka for this.

I don't normally write reviews for services, but a class with Valeka is worth a review! I opted for an online coaching medium because of my schedule, and Valeka was very professional, warm, responsive and very prompt. She takes the time to understand how she can help you be your best! That level of attention to detail was so important to me, since I was new to this medium.

If you're looking for an acting coach, do yourself a favor and reach out!

Finding an Acting Coach in Los Angeles is a daunting and overwhelming process. For me, I set out to find someone who's approach resonated with me as well as pushed and challenged me, helping me deepen my craft and boost my self-confidence. I needed to find a coach with whom I could form a relationship, who could provide an environment where I felt comfortable to receive feedback, to allow myself to be vulnerable and to take risks. I wanted a coach who could facilitate growth and help take my career to the next level. And, of course, I wanted to find someone who is qualified and knows what they are doing. Valeka was recommended through a fellow actor, and it was the best referral ever! Her knowledge is incredible and she is always willing to help. Since working with Valeka, I have been constantly going on auditions and FINALLY getting called back. I can't recommend Valeka enough, and if my word is not enough, reach out to her. You won't be sorry!

Beacon, NY

My approach to teaching and acting stem from a naturalistic approach and is sourced from various techniques. I guide students to find the joy in acting even in dramatic work. I am a longtime working professional actor and have been a Teaching Artist in NYC for well over a decade. I am a member of SAG-AFTRA and AEA, and can be seen on various Network and Cable shows as a Co and Guest Star. I like to tap into experiences that the student has had and help them develop their own ways to express and explore their emotions.

I worked professionally in film, on TV and on stage for years until I found representation. I discovered the joy in acting *and* auditioning and began to teach it through Acting Without an Agent™.

About Twinkle
I am a working professional actor, who has been teaching since the 80's. I think that acting is acting. Once you have a solid foundation, the difference between stage or scene is minor. I like to help my students find the most natural and seamless way to a character by using the text and various exercises. I find teaching and acting to be a tremendous joy and I love sharing that delight.

I am frequently in NYC for work and auditions and can come to you if you are not in the Beacon, NY area.

In the past year, I have done Co and guest starring roles on the following TV shows: MURPHY BROWN; GOTHAM; MADAM SECRETARY; LUKE CAGE; ELEMENTARY; THE OTHER TWO; and the upcoming "THE LOUDEST VOICE" on Showtime, with Russell Crowe. I have been in many National and regional commercials. I have done theatre at such prestigious venues as Woolly Mammoth
, Dorset Theatre Festival (Winner of the "Best Actress" award for VALLEY SONG) , and The Public Theatre, to name a few.

I began working as a professional actor and got my auditions and booked work without representation. My Acting Without an Agent™ technique still gets me in the room and I would love to share that knowledge as well.

As a producer and director I always ask auditioning actors if they are taking acting lessons. If they are it means they will not be stuck on a single track and can be directed. I studied acting under Lawrence Merrick, I wanted to become a better director.
I teach using the Stanislavsky method of teaching. Depending on the actors experience I go through three steps. Preparation, Building a character, creating a role. "There are no small parts'
I will stay with you from Audition to role.

About Edward Lee
I have produced or directed feature films, commercials and stage productions for over 30 years. While in new your I was a director for the New York Council on the arts and directed stage around the state. At that time I also taught acting (something I love to do, watching an actor grow in their craft was always exciting). I am a student of Stanislavsky and use his teaching method in my classes. I have, in my career, hired hundreds of actors and actresses so I know how a casting directors mind works. Acting is hard work but the rewards are worth it.

I not only am seen as a teacher, but as a mentor as well. The one-on-one relationship that is built between my students and I is priority. I want my students to know that it is 100% okay to try something new and play with it, therefore, I provide a safe and encouraging environment.

It is important to me that my students get the most out of their training. I am a trained and working actor with a BFA in acting for both stage and screen. So whichever you are looking to train in, I can coach you in one or both areas.

Experience: I have directed and stage managed plays and musicals, have had previous experience teaching acting classes, and have been a camp counselor for youth acting camps.

I promise we will have a fun time while working hard!

About Jace
I am a working actor and musician in the LA area. I graduated from Azusa Pacific University with my BFA in acting for the stage and screen. My background is in musical theater and stage acting. I recently have started film acting the last couple of years and have been in short films since.

I have been teaching for five years now. I want my students to feel comfortable with whatever material we work on. We will work on everything from character analysis, to scene study, to knowing yourself and your brand and feeling confident as an actor.

I am very passionate about what I do and love to help mentor those who seek to become better in their craft. I am very excited to meet you and work with you!

My daughter took lessons from her a while back. She was simply wonderful. My daughter could not stop talking about how much fun she had working with Jace. She knows lots about who to go to for headshots and how to build a resume as well. I’m so grateful she was able to help my daughter pursue what she loves.

Having graduated in rigorous BFA acting for stage and screen program , and working in Los Angeles as an actor Jace has a wealth of knowledge about acting as well as the film industry. With her being a working actor she offered me so much insight about what you need to do for an audition as well as how to tweak my monologue to give it more layers. She goes with you step by step and makes you feel confident and safe. She works with you at your level and she made me feel confident going into my audition and self tapes. Seriously, she is so great!

In 2003, I discovered an actress named Amber Heard, who recently played the role of Mera in the recent blockbuster film, Aquaman (Worldwide gross revenues: $1,147,761,807). In 2018, Forbes magazine valued Amber’s net worth at $9 million dollars. Aquaman was produced by my friends Deborah & Zack Snyder.

Additionally, I have worked with and developed the careers for Kira Kosarin (Nickelodeon’s The Thundermans), Cade Sutton (Disney’s Kirby Buckets) and produced concerts for Hollywood stars such as Mitchel Musso (Disney’s Hannah Montana) and Ryan Newman (Zeke and Luther, Sharknado).

I believe that talent can achieve success if they have the passion and heart to pursue a career. The key is understanding the business side of show business while developing the talent and skills needed by an actor. I also consult on an actor’s resume creation and talent agency placement. My wife is a model/actress who is currently represented by 12 agencies in the SouthEast, including nine in Florida.
