Keanon is a GREAT teacher/artist/musician/mentor

I've been working with Keanon for almost a year now. Aside from being an amazing vocalist himself, he does everything he can to help students reach their full potential and find their voice. He makes lessons fun while constantly keeping you challenged. There's always encouragement from him to strive to be better, which can really bring the best out of singers. Whether you're simply singing for hobby, performing for shows/auditions, or ready to record, Keanon has something to offer to any aspiring musician. He has a passion and love for music and understands it's a gift that must be shared with the world.

I’m a professional improviser! Was trained and worked with “The Second City” and teach improv classes to kids! I still do multiple improv shows a week and still write sketch comedy! In my lessons you’ll learn the basics such as “yes, and”, playing games with partners, showing locations and relationships, as well as object work and comedic timing! For more advanced improvisers, we’ll learn about how to affect your partners with your emotions, giving and taking focus, and dive into musical improv!

My 9-year old daughter needed a help with musical audition prep in last minute. Since we moved to another location, Brad was recommended by one of the CYT teachers we new at the previous location. As soon as Brad started the lesson, he knew exactly what was needed to be casted in a show. We only had two lessons before the audition, but his key point lessons were good enough to get a roll in the show for my daughter. We will definitely seek for Brad for next audition prep.

Brad's improv is top-notch, and he's helped me develop and round off the rough edges in my own routines. Highly recommended.

I started juggling for fun at age 10. Personally I can juggle up to 5 balls. Juggling is not as hard as it seems! It is a lot of fun and can be a great upper body workout. I have the knowledge and patience to help many levels of jugglers to improve their skills.

I'm passionate about the arts and love to teach! I have over 18 years of performing arts experience, and 6 years of teaching experience (K-8th grade music, as well as dance and musical theatre camps for kids in my community). I received my Bachelor's degree in 2013, studying Theatre, Music, and Art.

What makes acting lessons with me unique is that I have a background in music and dance as well--as musical theatre is my specialty. As a teacher, I will tailor my lessons around you, at your own pace, and will do my best to meet your individual needs as a student and performer. After learning what your goals are, I will provide a variety of material for you to prepare and perform. Together, you will do in-depth analysis of the scenes, breaking down every beat and discovering acting tactics, or character objectives. I also offer an Audition Prep course!

About Clarissa

Hey there! I'm passionate about the arts and I think you'll really enjoy taking lessons! I have over 18 years of performing experience and 6 years of teaching experience. I loved the opportunity I had to teach music part-time for 4 years at a K-8th grade school in Montana, which involved directing

Introduction: Personalized. Comprehensive. Fun.
I recognize the potential in each one of my students. With my customizable approach, I’ve seen my Dallas area students self-esteem and skill-set consistently rise.

I’m a patient, adaptable, and professional Hip Hop Dance Instructor ready to help you reach your goals. Get in touch today so we can start working together.

"I have been searching for the right guidance, a home for learning, real collaborative searching through scripted text to reveal art, and comradderie while doing so and I finally found Zach. He’s not afraid to use all avenues to achieve what we agree that we are trying to create and so there is no “formula” or “technique” as much as catering to what’s being demanded from the writing and how do we get there. He’s patient, smart, approaches the work from director, actor, cinematographer, and producer angles, creating an incredibly comprehensive coaching that makes everything else I’ve ever encountered in LA pale in comparison. Go to Zach. Curiosity. Creation. Success. HIGHEST recommendation."

"David has really helped my auditions. I have booked two jobs since coaching with him. He takes me back to the basics, forces me to let go of my ego, and doesn't allow me to use any of my actor "tricks." Consequently my auditions are resonating in a new and effective way. As of right now, he is absolutely essential when I have an appointment. I emphatically recommend him for coaching."
