I have been trained by infamous choreographers in the industry like: WildaBeast Adams, Yanis Marshall, Aliya Janell, Kiira Harper, KK Harris, Ysabelle Capitule, and Phil Wright.

I offer one on one privates for people of all ages. I have taught kids as young as 6 years old(I require a guardian to be present if they are under aged) to adults that are 50 years old. I always make sure I have an understanding of what the students goals and expectations are so we can have a successful lesson. You do not need to be an experienced dancer to take my classes. I have taught people who have never danced a day in their lives how to stay on ...

Justin is the quintessential professional in every way. His approach is to make you a better student of music not necessarily just learn guitar. He is patient with you and very positive and reinforcing. The passion he has for music is obvious from the first time you meet him. As with any good manager, just by the way he teaches, makes you want to be a better student.

As the amazed grand-daughter of David Smason, a successful vaudeville Orchestra leader, I have enjoyed many years of educational and professional experiences as an actress, teacher, and director in venues of all sizes. Besides performing leading and supporting roles in over 30 productions, including Suzie-" Wait Until Dark", Rosemary- "How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying", Miss Mazeppa-"Gypsy", Lalume " Kismet", I also performed and/or staged several original reviews such as SF's " The Distractions", " On Being Female", and " The Van Spronsen Variety Showcase". Directing/coaching "The Sound of Music", multiple productions of "Amahl and the Night Visitors" and "Your a Good Man Charlie Brown" leading orchestras, choirs, and workshops for churches, schools and communities has given me a strong appreciation for artistic collaboration. earning a BA in Theater Arts from SFSU, all ages and levels, comic to tragic, specializing in musicals, I have successfully ...

Are you looking to improve your tone, delivery and/or ability to control your nerves? I can assist you in this area. As vocalists, speaking is very much a part of our job. The ability to approach an audience with confidence and to keep their attention is imperative and something that we do often in performance.

About Lauren

I am a graduate of The University of The arts with a BA in music performance. The University of The Arts has allowed me to gain a reputable amount of performance and educational work. In my training at the University was able to concentrate on many styles of performance such as classical technique

Lauren was very skillful at what she does and this conveys well in the lessons with her. I learned a lot from Lauren in my time with her but I would prefer the lessons to be a little more organized. All in all a good experience, Thank you Lauren.

Lauren is the real deal. Point blank period. I initially signed up for singing lessons, but she has helped me with piano, music theory, and other skills as well. She has a much more wholesome approach for developing as an artist than simply a linear "sing these notes" type of lesson.

Lauren is a good balance of stern and silly. She has a great sense of humor, so I feel comfortable singing & playing for her (even if my skills are limited and sound like a dying horse). However, that doesn't mean you just goof around. She takes it very seriously and pushes you as a student. I couldn't recommend Lauren more.

Five stars.

"Adam is really super (I am only on my third lesson). He will make you feel comfortable and interact with you in a personable and dynamic way.

He is the perfect teacher if you want to improve your stage voice and pitch. Adam is the man if you have fame on your mind. Julia

If you are a little slow on the uptake, (like I am when I don't know the subject matter) you need to be brave and follow his directions in practicing techniques. Adam personalizes his lessons, but they could be more planned. They feel a little too unprepared."

"Recently I worked on a callback with Jake. Being an actor himself he knows exactly how to talk to performers in a way that empowers them. In his mock audition settings he successfully creates the feeling of professionalism that you encounter in the world and enables you to find confidence in your process and work within that setting. Most importantly, Jake is encourages you to be yourself and bring you to the audition, not give the people behind the table an idea of what you think they want. Jake understands that auditioning is not about delivering what you think it should be, but taking the opportunity to express your unique self within the character and circumstances."
