Great. Very personable and easy to relax with. Great exercises and homework I feel is doable as my first ever vocal lesson. Can't wait for my next session :)
Junie
My 5 year old daughter has become a stronger dancer with Ms. Kelly as she builds up for her recital. We are truly lucky to find such a dedicated and talented teacher.
Tracey
I was very lucky to have found Kelly. I had always dreamed of having artistic talent but I am not a naturally good singer. Within two years, I have gone from singing in the shower to having developed to stage performance. Kelly has taught me so much from the artistic expression of singing to the mechanics of turning my voice into an instrument. She has an incredible ability to listen to my voice and pinpoint the exact adjustment I need to make it sound great. She's such a fun person to be around that I always look forward to my next lesson. Her positive attitude and approach is also a testament to her high level of professionalism. She provides feedback that is positive. but also helps me improve She is the perfect combination of teacher and coach and I would highly recommend her for anyone interested in singing.

Jeff has been great with my 7 year old son learning Djembe and Bongos. Jeff gives clear concise instructions and practices the skills with him to work on during the week. My son is easily distracted and Jeff is very flexible and listens to what he has to say, using is as a way to teach and redirects. My son can't wait to go to class every week!

I have been street dancing since I was seven years old, but started teaching it when I was in 6th grade. In 2012 I gained training in Funk, and Lyrical hip- hop, and teaching both styles ever since then.
My teaching goals are basically to help the students gain simple movements and concepts of each hip- hop style.
Even as a teacher you are still a student, so I still get training to build my skills each day and help others gain from what I learn.

About markiya

Hi, my name is Markiya. I have been dancing hip- hop since I was seven years and never stopped dancing since then. I was self taught by watching music videos, and memorizing choreography to build my skills. I have been teaching choreography since 6th grade and still continue to do so. Over the year

"I tried several other voice acting teachers on this site before I came across David. And I can say with absolute confidence that he is the best teacher on here. David is kind, helpful, and an incredibly down to earth guy. Most teachers throw you in expecting you to understand their methods like I'm some kind of savant. David however, gives you material but also tells you why he gave you the material. He breaks down the process. Also, certain teachers will coddle you and give you fake praise so you continue to buy their program. And i'm not saying David doesn't give praise. But he gives meaningful praise. He is honest about when I lack in a certain aspect and tells me how to improve, while also giving my positive feedback on the things I am doing well. If you are on the fence about this teacher stop. He is worth every penny. If I got to do it over again I would have chosen him first in a heart beat for twice the money. He has rekindled my passion for voice acting and is actually giving my real hope that I can achieve my goals of becoming a real voice acting soon. I can not stress enough how wonderful he is as a teacher and that anyone and everyone who has a drive to learn acting should take his classes. I am continuing classes with him, but even when I'm finished (eventually) I will never forget what he taught me. Thanks David :)"

"For the past 4 years, my husband and I have had the pleasure of dancing with Mr. Eugene and Ms. Ania. They have been an asset in our new experience of ballroom dance. As we have grown in dance, we have found Mr. Eugene and Ms. Ania to be extraordinary. My husband has some health issues (Stage 2 Alzheimer’s) and they designed a plan to help him achieve success. I had confidence issues and once again, they gave me the courage to perform. We have found the love of dance! Through their guidance, wisdom and knowledge of dance, we can honestly say...”We can dance”!"
