My daughter started a series of lessons with Kristen in preparation of her high school play audition. It was very clear that Kristen is extremely knowledgeable of all technical aspects of singing & able to clearly communicate. My daughter really enjoyed her initial lesson w/ Kristen & is confident that she will be well prepared for her school’s play auditions.

Alex is amazing! She is funny, knowledgable, and she meets you where you're at! I'm definitely a beginner at make-up and she had excellent advice for products and processes. She was always willing to show me things again or follow my lead with where I wanted to the lessons to go! Highly Recommend.

He is best known World-wide for his role on “The Young and the Restless” where he received 3 Emmy nominations and won his first Emmy for Outstanding Younger Actor in a Drama Series for his role as Billy Abbott. He has the experience and training to coach actors who are either beginning their journey with acting or are well experienced actors who are looking to bring more color and light to their work. so they will stand out in front of the casting director & make their tape unique from the rest. Acting is my passion, and I love to share that passion with others so they may reach their dreams of becoming a working actor.

David is very knowledgeable and gave my daughter such great advice and direction to work with. He broke down each line of her scene and the motivation behind it and took the extra time with her to make sure she understood everything and was delivering it naturally and effectively. He even spent extra time with her and didn’t finish the lesson until she fully got everything down. Very professional, fun, friendly and genuine. We’re so grateful we found him and she and I both look forward to her next lesson with him! We very highly recommend him!!
