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
Alexandria Franklin
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.

The thing that separates me from the rest of the guides you will find on this subject is that my knowledge and experience comes from the Private Security field...specializing in "Undercover/plain clothed" investigations, leading to professional level proficiency in Human Behavior and Psychology.

In my brief existence on earth, somehow, all of my interests, flaws, and experiences fit together like a puzzle and have lead me to the point where I can understand Human Behavior and Psychology fluently....raising me to a life of leadership.

How did I end up directing Actors?  I was searching for a more positive expression for my knowledge while still supporting peoples life goals.  This search dropped me down a rabbit hole of research including method actors, and eventually Stanislavski's system, and the great Uta Hagen which shocked me.... until that very moment my life experiences resembled many aspects of these systems without even knowing they existed.

Since then, I have chosen ...

About Omar

As with anything else I teach It is important to understand the fundamentals and then gain knowledge from those experiences onward. Learning and enjoying anything depends on practice experience as well as separate tactics that cause you to be unique and create an advantage only you have.

Omar is an awesome instructor to teach on Method Acting.He understands the student aspiration and train accordingly.he motivates the actor with his excellent advises and provide inspirational thoughts to the actor.I am sure he can make best actors/actresses/artists through his own specific ways of method acting skills.thank you Director:).
Craig
When I first began my search for an acting coach I was stressed out because I knew I needed help but I didn't know how to start. Luckily I found the Director, Omar. The Director began by interviewing me to see what my goals and potential were. He then developed a specific lesson plan designed around what he called "The Fundamentals" and I progressed since then. Now after a few months of the Directors support, I know confidently that I am an Actor. I learned things about human behavior and method acting that I couldn't find in any video or online source. The Director somehow made things simple to understand and I'm glad for it. I am not done with the lessons, but since he has supported me and shared his knowledge, the least I can do is share my experience. Thank you Director!

This lesson explores stage performance through song. I will help coach and prepare you to present a song with the correct realistic emotion and presence. The skills you learn will help translate into other areas of your performance needs. You will need to have a song prepared(doesn't have to be memorized and feel free to use karaoke tracks) enough for me to see how you would perform it before coaching. I will then coach and improve your performance to be the best it can be. I absolutely love to coach and can't wait to work with you. Prepare to laugh, have fun, and work hard!! Let's get started!!!

I am a full time professional magician with over 30 years of experience and over 15 years working as a full time pro. I will walk you through each and every step making sure that you not only understand how to perform a specific sleight or magic trick but WHY you do the particular moves or scripting when you do. I have a BFA in Theater Arts and use my training to help you understand the performance element of magic. Even if you are only performing for one friend, a well performed trick is better than and poorly performed one.

I understand that sometimes people have a hard time speaking in front of others, but really want to improve. Whether it be, because you aren't speaking clearly enough, aren't projecting enough or need to get over your jitters, let's see what we can do. We can work on monologues or look at what event you're preparing for. Even if it is a speech for school or for an event at work. Both Acting and Singing have helped me with these issues. Working in front of someone that knows what to listen for and can help you to tweak what you've been doing might be the best solution.

About Nicole

As a voice teacher and voice coach, I strive to help the student get to where they want to be vocally. For me, singing is something that brings me joy and I hope to be able to share that with you. It took me a while to realize how much music and singing means to me. While studying something en

"As a 70 year old professor/author I have always wanted to learn a magic trick to entertain because I've so enjoyed the wonderful illusions and slight-of-hand magic of performers like Daniel Chan. I never knew it would be so affordable to have someone with his level of professionalism actually teach me. I just had my first lesson and can honestly say I can't wait for the second one. His devotion to theory and is ability to make it practical are remarkable."

"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."

When I can't follow a sequence, he has a way of breaking things down. Jared is always working on new choreography. There's a lot of variety in his style, and it's a ton of fun. Highly recommend!"

How to Learn Acting by Studying Your Favorite Actors

If you’re a budding actor, dreaming about moving to LA for your big silver screen break, spending Friday night in watching reruns of your favorite movies may not be as couch-potato-ish as it sounds.
