Serena is great. She is patient but pushes you just enough to see results. She helps you with singing technique as well as with techniques to make the song more genuine and authentic.

She is a great teacher. She gave me several tips and exercises that were very helpful. She was very understanding when I had some computer glitches. Very friendly also. Highly recommend!

Serena immediately understood what I wanted out of lessons and gave me very useful on target skills to think about. I like how she teaches with the students priorities in mind yet delivering all her experience in knowledge. I hope to continue with Serena in lessons for a long time to come.

I'll show you how to develop a character or read a scene with another scene partner and I'll make the training fun! I'll help you choose good monologues and show you how to "cold read" a dialogue at an audition. Based on my education at Columbia I have lots of techniques to offer! If you want to you can bring a scene partner, otherwise I'll read the scenes with you.

Unfortunately, yesterday was my last lesson with Mark, as I am moving to Guam. I would definitely not be giving up my weekly lesson with him if that weren't the case! I've learned so much in the short couple months taking lessons from him. I would recommend him to anyone of any skill level. Very helpful and kind. :)

For many years I sang in my school Chamber Choir and took voice lessons. The choir performed regularly in pubic and in statewide competitions. I also have years of experience teaching the basics of singing in a low pressure way.
Topics we learn about include breathing and breath control, pitch and intervals, keys and scales and singing harmony. I can accompany a student while they sing, and hopefully teach them the basics of accompanying themselves.

David is the best and the sweetest piano teacher we have ever have. He is so patient, kind, caring and creative in his teaching method.

My 5 year old has a little autism symptom so she's very easy to get distracted. Yet we have great fun time in every class with him. His class worth 20 min driving there and 20 min driving back, using toll road!

David has been so amazing with out 9 year old daughter. We have gone to him for over 2 years and she has come so far with her skills! He has so much patience. He's so kind and wonderful with kids. We were recommended by a friend and now we recommend him! He's high in demand for sure! We are sad we can't use him anymore due to scheduling issues. His prices are better than others too!

Quickly contextualized my needs as a student, and got me familiar with components and techniques of composition. The goal was to be able to help me more easily communicate ideas and designs to audio engineers at a company I work at. There has been a very observable benefit to this in the expedience of discussions, and fidelity of concept being engineered.

Hello, my name is Anna and I have more than 22 years of the experience in ballroom dancing. I can teach Latin, ballroom, rhythm, smooth dances, including West Coast swing, salsa, merengue, Argentine tango, almost all couple dances, you name it. I have a huge experience working with the beginners with both left feet and with gold dancers, as well with pro dancers; I’m a national champion of my country and World Cup finalist, but as you remember: I have a huge experience with the beginners and two left feeters) I do believe in dancing, both: social and competitive and that’s why along with physical teaching I want to reach to everyone and share benefits of ballroom dancing)
Do you need to have a partner?! Preferably...but if you happen to be alone at home, I’ll teach you using whatever you will have around: tables, chairs, doors, etc.
Solo dancing?! Not a problem, I’ll teach you how to dance on your own
Wedding couple?! Great! I’ll teach you how to beautifuly dance together stress ...

We are complete novices for ballroom dancing-- Anna was wonderfully helpful in connecting prior to the lesson and preparing to help us get the most out of the hour that we booked. She is energetic, vivacious and has a highly effective teaching style. she is able to break the dance down with cues and rhythms that are easy to grasp and remember. We will definitely go back to her for another lesson.

I used to dance back in Russia for a couple years but I forgot everything since then. I’m glad I found Anna who speaks not only my language but also Russian. Just for a couple classes I refreshed my abilities and decided to go further with Anna and this is my favorite thing to do on earth for now.

"Amelia was one of my first acting coaches and by far the best I have ever and will ever work with. Amelia encourages her students to look beyond the pages of the script and find the meaning in the words. She taught me to explore the characters I played and challenged me each time, helping me improve with each character. Amelia helped me realize my love for acting and allowed me to explore what it takes to truly connect with a character. While Amelia clearly loves the craft of acting, more importantly she loves to see her students improve and grow. Even though five years have passed since Amelia has been my teacher, I still reference the tools she taught me with each of my roles."

She's optimistic, consistent, confident, thorough, supportive and offers solid suggestions for improvement. I especially appreciate her assigning homework enabling me to master skills and amplify results.

I'm a sincere advocate of Denyc's coaching and look forward to an on-going relationship as this is a process, best curated over time."

"Amelia is one of the best acting coaches that I've had the privilege to work with. She is patient, caring, and understands that every student learns differently. Amelia will work with you to help you bring the most to any performance piece you work on. She will teach you to analyze the script to understand why your character does what he does or says what he says. She will teach you how to connect to the material to bring your performance to life. Amelia helped me grow as an actor and inspired me to begin writing my own material for others to enjoy. If you have a passion for the performing arts and want to make yourself better for it, then look no further than Amelia."
