I teach singers of all genres (country, classical, jazz, pop, bluegrass, rock…) to sing with confidence and freedom!

I have a M.M. in vocal performance from the Chicago College of Performing Arts and have extensive vocal training. I teach an open throat technique (appoggio) that allows the singer to sing with freedom, and access their entire range evenly. I also work with students to develop style, interpretation, languages, and acting ability. I have extensive stage experience and teach my students how to have confidence while portraying a character on stage.

About Benjamin

I have extensively studied vocal performance for many years and continue to add to my own technique. I have a Master of Vocal Performance Degree from the Chicago College of Performing Arts. I have a Bachelor of Science Degree in Biology, where I extensively studied the anatomy of the voice. I am th

Camille P.
Serena isn't only a talented pianist, she's a skilled instructor as well. She teaches everything you need to understand piano theory, improve finger strength and agility and acquire the best hand posture.

Serena tailors her lessons towards her student. Depending on my weekly progress, she recommended a detailed routine to consolidate my weaknesses and push me to improve.

Finally, Serena is eloquent and friendly. She explains things in a simple manner and does her best to understand you, your lifestyle and your objectives, all to provide the best experience . And she totally nails it.

Thank you Serena! :D

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!

IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A MUSIC TEACHER- just take the dive and book with Monica!!! She is the absolute best. I am so self-conscious about my singing voice and Monica put me at ease immediately.

I am here to make dancing enjoyable, fun, exciting, comfortable...... I can go on and on, but my goal for all of my students is to gain the confidence that is lacking. Any one can be a dancer and that's what I believe. I understand the awkwardness feeling as a new dancer and it is not fun starting off, but what made me get passed that stage of awkwardness was the amazing teacher that seen potential and helped me take my dancing to the roof. Now, as a dance instructor I thrive and seek to give that same motivation to my students. I don't mind explaining something multiple times or in a different way to make sure you understand it. Trust me, you won't have to deal with an impatient instructor like most would have to. You want to be that awesome dancer? Lets make it happen then!!!!

Before I started taking with him, I was ok as an actor. Once I started working with him, I started getting callbacks and booking jobs and really started to grow and reach my full potential as an actor and I began to feel very confident about my abilities.

She is very passionate about the craft and is a genuine person. She knows how to work with each actors' strengths to bring out their best performances. She works with you on getting of rid of habits that hinder your true potential. I am so blessed to have worked with her.

3 Drama Games for Learning Method Acting

Method acting requires you to fully embrace your transformation into your character. To create an authentic experience for your audience, you need to lose the speech inflections, facial expressions, and physical mannerisms that wouldn't make sense. For example, when an actor plays a depressed man, his cynical speech won't be convincing if he delivers it with perfect, confident posture. When Hollywood stars stay in character between takes, or improv comedians wear disguises to interact with un …
