This is NOT your average coaching session! This is for those who are ready to finally overcome the world’s #1 fear:
PUBLIC PERFORMANCE.
Get ready to present yourself, business, product or service with confidence, personality and effectiveness.

My lighthearted and humorous approach to seemingly stressful situations, especially in the public performance sector, have made me a highly sought-after coach for one-on-one and group training.

Jeff provided a great overview for my daughter. Wonderful first lesson.

Jeff has been great with my 7 year old son learning Djembe and Bongos. Jeff gives clear concise instructions and practices the skills with him to work on during the week. My son is easily distracted and Jeff is very flexible and listens to what he has to say, using is as a way to teach and redirects. My son can't wait to go to class every week!

Beginner and intermediate levels

I have had a lot of experience in front of a wide variety of audiences. Not just performing music, but teaching classes, giving seminars and business and sales presentations. Sifting from what worked (and what didn't) have a lot of insights to offer anyone who has the occasion to speak in front of a crowd or in a meeting or at a school event.

About Jeff

Jeff is a seasoned instructor in guitar, songwriting, music performance and music business. He also offers lessons in public speaking, voice-over performance and ukulele. He welcomes students of all ages and experience and has successfully and happily taught beginners to pro-level musicians and r

Whether you're completely brand new or have had more experience flexing your acting muscles, I'd love to help you take your next steps as a young artist. I began performing in musicals at the age of five for an audience of 2,000 people! It certainly took a lot of work to get over my nerves and I'd like to help you do the same. If you're just starting out, we may play some theatre games and practice on some simple texts until you're confident enough to take on some tougher material. If you're more advanced, we will likely dig into some new characters and work on developing your technique and building your repertoire. First and foremost, I want to meet you wherever where you are on your personal journey with acting and help you work toward your goals, however general or specific they may be at this time. Let me know if you have any questions!

About Carissa

Hi! I'm Carissa, a working actor and playwright, and would love to work with you on your craft! I grew up heavily immersed in the arts from a young age. For Middle School and High School I attended one of the top Performing Arts schools in the State of California, where I was able to take classes s

I'm really impressed!!! Carissa met all my expectations and even more. For a very short period of time, she has taught me how to improve my intonation by using positive phrases and believing in them. It really helps, I feel like I got her energy and positiveness. Thanks Carissa! Look forward to the next lesson!

Film & TV acting is far from the same as its sibling, Theater acting, and should be taught differently. I'm an experienced Theater and Film acting coach of 8 years, and I have experienced the difference of the stage and screen. Thus, I structure my lessons, so students learn what they want and need to learn, while also building a strong foundation of the serious acting skills they will need.

Come on; you have been acting since you were a child and trying to lie to your parents, let's put those skills to use!

About Christopher

So, I first became interested in acting at age 2 when I learned how to lie, like all kids do. However, my love for it started when I was 9 after I was given a camera for Christmas. My early attempts at films were mostly amateurish and spontaneous...yeah... But in late 2009, however, I started work
