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.

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.

She make it so fun and makes you feel so comfortable that any nerves you may be experiencing just evaporate. She is able to see the bigger picture when working on a monologue/scene so the result is really detailed work. I highly recommend her to anyone looking to up their audition or acting game, because she really knows her stuff!"

"The first lesson of the ten-pack I bought (to start) went very well. Michael was knowledgeable and provided just the kind of feedback I wanted for my solo vocal performances (I was looking for instruction on *acting* in solo vocal performance), giving me immediately useful tips for improving my next performance. It's clear that Michael has a lot to offer me. I look forward to more in the coming lessons."

"My experience with Anthony has helped me to push myself to limits that I could have never imagined, He has given me monologues that i would never have had the courage to even attempt. From our first meeting he fully immersed himself into getting to know me as a person finding out my strength and weakness as an artiste.
He has shown me how very important it is to have technical training, that it can only enhance the natural talents that I have. He is caring, stern in the fact that he makes you work the full time you are with him. He is an incredible support system a great encourager, I'm looking forward to what the future holds for my acting career now!!"

"Best. Instructor. Ever. Indeed. LOL Kenneth's a truly awesome teacher that eats, sleep, and breathes dance, and just freaking life in general. This guy can be waiting to be seated at a restaurant and start dancing out in public because he's just that passionate and excited to teach LOL I was able to learn from Kenneth in a summer workshop and the amount of craziness that happened blew my mind. It's not just his choreography that's awesome , but it's Kenneth himself - his personality makes him stand out from the crowd, and his vibrancy as a human being, dancer, and teacher, radiates in any environment he's in, and it's infectious. Kenneth inspires me to not only learn his choreography extremely well, but to also find myself and my own style by encouraging me to find my own personality in his dances. Thanks bro ✊🏽 Can't wait to learn from you again in the future!"
