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

"Alex was my Movement and Voice/Speech instructor in my graduate programme. I had done my undergrad in acting overseas and then moved to LA to complete my MFA in Acting. In my undergrad programme, I absolutely detested every Tuesday and Friday when we had Movement and Voice...but all that changed when Alex became my teacher for these subjects. Suddenly these were my favourite subjects. She made me actually look forward to going to class at 9am. I looked forward to what I was going to learn next from her.

She was so attentive to ALL her students, no matter your level. She always found time to work with you in whatever you were struggling with. She really truly cared about us. It was unlike anything I'd experienced with any other teacher I'd have ever. At one point, I was victim to some intimidation from another student in my class. Alex was the first person I confided in and she guided me through what I should do and how I should handle it, she was completely there for me, even allowing me to call her past 10pm to calm me down after one particularly bad encounter with said student.

Her lessons are prepared, structured and completely engaging. Somehow she is able to detect exactly what you personally need to work on and makes sure you are offered the most appropriate advice that best suits your personal needs. I can't even quite express how much I have learnt from her in the short four months that she was my teacher. She has exposed me to so many different techniques and exercises which, through her guidance, afforded me the opportunity to choose what worked for me.

If there is one thing that you cannot deny about Alex, she genuinely cares about her students, sometime to the detriment of her own life. She is an extraordinary teacher and an even more exceptional woman.

As cliche as this is, she inspires me to not only be a better actor, but to just be a better person."

"For all my life I have been extremely soft-spoken and have been constantly reminded to speak up in social situations. This has negatively impacted my self confidence and fed into a cycle that made me even quieter and more reserved. I tried to self-treat by browsing through countless YouTube videos and hundreds of Reddit pages but found that my practice at home did not translate into me being a louder speaker in public. Finally I decided I had nothing to lose and everything to gain from seeing a trained professional. That's when I met Fawn. She immediately dissected my problem into aspects I could tackle individually. She dispelled some previously crippling fears and notions that held me back but I could never manage to express with anyone. She gave me breathing and projection exercises and the immediate feedback that I definitely needed. She even diagnosed a specific lisp that I would never have thought possible to change. We eventually got rid of it and the confidence I have gained in my speech is overwhelming. I came in quiet and seeking answers. I left confident, with a sense of direction, and a new mentor and friend. Fawn is effective, charming, and hilarious. I would recommend her to anyone who is seeking answers and needs a coach for improvement, no matter the area."
