Education is one of the most valuable things you can acquire. Knowledge stays with you wherever you go and you can use it in the less unexpected situation.

It's amazing how our brain can absorb information in different ways. We can be learning something unintentionally. So whichever your circumstances are we should be open to learn or improve our skills every day. Remember, the process of learning never ends.

I stress understanding rather than memorizing formulas. This ensures my students can derive formulas/solutions even without memorization.

I know firsthand how difficult it is to learn programming whether you are a total newbie, or a budding intermediate, but I have overcame these challenges myself and will guide you to overcome them too. I also have close to 8 years of tutoring experience, which will surely come in handy!

About Bill

I have always been a self-studier in my entire life. Being able to learn with just books and your brain is a crucial skill to have! However, I know not everyone (and sometimes even myself) have the discipline and motivation to keep going during hard times. This is where a tutor would come in handy.

Through the application of music and acting stage performance techniques, coupled with exercises for vocal pitch and elocution, we'll develop the strength and control of your voice.
I'll include conveyance of meaning, dramatic pause, how and when to use eye contact, and how to truly read an audience. We'll look at using stories to awaken emotion and help people recall real facts you share. Much of what you've heard is wrong or at least misleading. And you certainly don't need to be an extrovert or power pitchman to speak well and get your point across.
From the work that we do, you'll have a solid knowledge of when and how to put to use the power of your voice.

I have had the privaledge of being around the most iconic talents ever in show biz because of my father Harvey Korman.So having heard Aubrey Sing it harkens me back fo my favorite singers Joanne Gleason Bernadette Peters and Eydie Gormes,Karen Carpenters.The best compliment I can give Aubrey is that she is a songstress.Thats a artists who can sing and tell a story with inflection in all the right places while she expresses her humanity through song.Like her idol Barbara Streisand she is just one exuisite artists that lives and breaths and embodies every song she sings.You would be hard pressed to study with anyone as polished and dedicated as Aubrey.I don't have a daughter but if I did I hope she ends up like Aubrey then I know what it is to have created a masterpiece.She is a second generation artists her father is also a very sublimely gifted artists Glenn Williams here in Vegas.

I have been taking lessons from Aubrey since last year and she has been a tremendous teacher! She has an uplifting presence and passionate spirit as well as a wealth of professional experience. Aubrey has a great way of letting me develop my character on my own, while also critiquing and pushing me out of my comfort zone. Become a student of Aubrey Williams and take your passion to the next level!

My name is Glenn W., and I am an Acting Instructor, Vocal Teacher, and Educator of the Performing Arts at Takelessons.com, since 2005. I have received many awards and accolades during my tenure, (please feel free to peruse my Profile), and, to date, have accumulated over 75 student reviews, ALL 5-Star rated, and none of my reviews are ever solicited. I make mention of my successes as a preface to this review/recommendation because I believe that the young lady who has now made herself available for hire, Aubrey Williams, is on equal par with my abilities. I mentored Ms. Williams for many years here in Las Vegas, observing as she matured as a singer and actress, procuring many prime roles in productions around the Vegas Valley. Always hungry to learn and absorb, she ventured to Broadway and was accepted at the prestigious Marymount-Manhattan College in New York City. (Over a thousand applicants auditioned, less than 50 were chosen). After studying and further honing her craft with the Best of the Best in NYC, she secured her Degree in Musical Theater and returned to Las Vegas to contemplate her next professional move. In the interim, I hired her to teach at my studio, and observed her as she enriched the lives and skills of her students to such a degree as to astonish even ME, an old sage educator... It was her choice then to relocate to Los Angeles in 2019, where she was immediately accepted in the industry, and became gainfully employed as both a performer AND an educator. What is Las Vegas' loss, is now Los Angeles' gain. For any prospective actor OR singer, any age, wishing to begin a new journey in your life, or if you are already working professionally in the industry and desire to sharpen your skills, Ms. Williams would be my OVERWHELMING choice to guide and mentor you. She is passionate about her craft, and her passion is INFECTIOUS. She is currently a working actress and performer, so her skills are contemporary and relevant. She has a knack for providing what it is you require as an individual entity, to enhance your unique talents and presentation. And always, ALWAYS, her sessions are predicated upon having FUN. She is an amazing singer, a brilliant actress, and an accomplished dancer. In our business we refer to such gifted individuals as "Triple Threats"; and due to the fact that she has the extraordinary gift to TEACH these skills in a manner that is massively informative, enthusiastically creative, currently applicable, and passionately enjoyable, in my book makes Aubrey Williams a "Quadruple Threat"... If you are serious about this endeavor to which you are about to embark (and my guess is YOU ARE, or you would not be reading this right now...), look no further than Aubrey Williams to join you in your journey on a Magical Road to unleashing your abilities as an actor and/or a singer. Trust ME. It will the wisest, most satisfying and fulfilling investment you will ever make....
