I offer Acting training with three different types of focuses:

- Acting Lessons: If you are interested in the craft of acting and want to become a better artist I create a weekly/monthly lesson plan which will serve your unique needs. Lessons will be based around your experience level, your interests, and your end goal as a performer.

- Audition Coaching: Monologue/Scene/Side coaching for anything from a Community Theater audition to a callback for Chicago Fire. We will attack your audition material analytically, psychophysically, and psychologically.

- Industry Coaching: What does an agent do? How do I get noticed by a Casting Director? How can I get to perform in a Motion Picture? What type am I?
The focus of my Acting Industry Coaching is to expose the actors to all the industry tools and info that can make them successful. Explaining Unions, how a headshot can get you through the door, and how to figure out type, are what I focus on in these lessons.

About Daniil

Looking to become more confident? A better actor? Find a new agent? With over 10 years of industry experience as an Actor, Director, Artistic Director, and most importantly, educator, I help people from Ages 5 to 80 sharpen their craft, turn anxiety into self confidence, and own themselves so th

Jared
This was my first ever acting class and Dan has done a great job! He’s really made me understand how to put myself in the moment with repetition exercises. Very laid back and easy to work with but also professional. Would recommend to anyone looking to become a better actor.
Sophia
Daniil worked with me on preparing multiple callback sides, both classical and contemporary. He is the kind of coach that has the specificity and honesty to push you beyond what you thought you were capable of, and to open your eyes to a new way of seeing your work. Daniil was able to connect my early experience with Meisner training to the sides that I had in front of me, in a way that was challenging but not scary. I left the session with a new handful of tools to prepare for the upcoming callbacks, and a new perspective on what it meant to reach honesty and authenticity as an actor.
Emily
Dan is an incredible instructor. His keen eye and ability to coach is a true gift. Dan works in specificity, detail and nuance; I am always a better actor having worked with him. Dan is knowledgeable about the business and offers great advice on agents, managers, type and casting. I highly recommend Dan as an acting coach and a business coach.

I have been playing guitar for over a decade and have tons of performance experience gigging in a local rock band. Combine that with a curriculum that starts with fundamentals and expands quickly into playing your favorite songs and you have a great start to beginning or expanding your guitar playing abilities.

About ryan

Hi, my name is Ryan and I would love to teach you how to play guitar. I've been playing for over 10 years and have been gigging for a little less than that in my band. Over the years I have gained a lot of experience performing on stage and teaching to people of all ages. If you want to shred, jam,

Very helpful and provided a lot of useful tips on difficult subject matter
Mark Herr
Ryan was great! He's obviously a talented guitarist and he is very laid back and makes you feel comfortable. He shows you in detail what you need to do to become a better guitar player. My ONLY advice, and the reason he doesn't get 5 stars, is I think he should have more visual aids with his lessons. For example, write down the different scales or transcribe the first several measures of a song. Then, one has something to refer back to when you are practicing and invariably get stuck. Other than that, I would highly recommend Ryan as a guitar teacher!

Let me help you sing coloratura, increase your vocal range, sing with clean articulation, and use resonance to increase your volume and color your tone.

I teach a very detailed technique that will help you enrich your voice and achieve a wide vocal range using chest, head and falsetto registers with smooth transitions between registers, with accurate pitch, sustainable tone production, a clear frontal resonance mixed balanced by a rich throat resonance, coordination between breathing, phonation, and resonance, clean articulation in English, German, French and German.

I am unique because of my combined musical and medical backgrounds. In addition to my graduate and undergraduate musical training and extensive musical experience, I bring an understanding of how human anatomy and its function can be applied to singing. In addition to the traditional methods such as imagery and mimicry that all singing teachers use, I will help you understand your body - precisely how to produce ...

She is amazingly patient with me, a newbie, even though she is brilliant! and I am not!!!

What is the Best Lighting for Photography?

The best photography lighting is based on several factors, and depends on what type of look you want when it comes to your photos. Natural lighting versus studio lighting brings about two different looks in your photography. We'll be discussing natural lighting, which does not need any equipment. And we'll also discuss the benefits of two styles of studio lighting. The natural lighting of a photo will be much softer and a warmer look while using studio lighting gives your photos a more ov …
