I had wonderful time with Amelia. She is amazing and she helped me a lot!
I am very happy that I chose her.

Throughout each lesson, I learned something new about myself. She was very patient, informative, and always had good things to say about you and your acting/voice skills. She helped awaken my creative theatre mind again and I’m thankful for that. I highly recommend taking her if you want a good experience in learning or enhancing your acting/voice skills!

I worked with Meggie as a Stage Manager on The Basset Table by Susanna Centlivre. The play has a wide range of English dialects from high society to servants and commoners. Meggie worked with the actors in groups and individually to help them form the dialect along with their characters. Every actor got a demo recording to listen to to help as well. If actors were particularly struggling she would talk to them about it privately and work with them one on one. She's patient and wiling to work with people who put in the effort to learn.
Alex
Meggie is a talented and knowledgeable leader in all aspects of theater. She's a strong and creative presence to be around, and I've loved watching her direct. She's helped me grow in such a short period of time and her passion is contagious. She leads the way for women in the performing arts industry and shines an important light on issues facing them throughout the years and today. I highly recommend! :)

I was lucky to be an actor in a period play Meggie directed. Her expertise really helped give me the confidence I needed to shine in my role.

Susan.
Alyssa is an upbeat, encouraging, and patient teacher. Her own singing voice is beautiful, and she sings very professionally in a wide range of genres. She is reliable, pleasant, sincere, and capable. She gives each student her full attention and tailors her lessons to each one's particular talent (as well as where they're in need of improvement). I recommend Alyssa very highly... She's delightful!

"My daughter is 14 years old and we needed some help with an acting role for her school musical. Sandra was wonderful, in a brief time she was able to help her understand that it is important to own the role. I feel as though my daughter came a long way. My daughter did get the role that she auditioned for in her High School play and she is only a freshman. Thanks very much Sandra!"

"My 7 year old boy did online hip hop lessons with Miss Kay, she was WONDERFUL! She was kind and encouraging and my son grew in confidence and his love of dance from her encouragement and instruction. He looked forward to these classes all week, he screamed, "that was soo much fun!" frequently when we signed off. She even educated him on the four styles of hip hop and now he is eager to learn a little bit of each of them. Couldn't recommend Kay more highly. Such an all around kind and genuine person and positive influence in my son's life each week. Grateful for her."
