We just had our first lesson with Ana. She got on great with our kids, and seems really to know what she's doing.
Tucker
Ana is just a really great teacher. First, she’s a really nice person. She’s also highly competent, patient, flexible, and obviously a wonderful dancer herself. She makes things fun, and yet still teaches in a classical way, which is great. Yay Ana!

As an experienced and passionate Music Teacher, I believe in an approach that gives students positive, constructive ways to learn. I design my lessons according to my students’ needs, with an emphasis on confidence-boosting activities. They learn how to practice, confidence on stage, confidence in themselves and out-ward ability to stay focused on the task.

Amazing teacher and my daughter loves her lesson. Jean has a great personality and she is very patient. Its a beautiful thing to see my daughter playing the piano.

Great job getting my daughter who is not afraid to sing in front of people to open her voice up even further. She just preformed as a lead in a play and displayed what she has learned very well

I am a voice and acting teacher specializing in musical theater and pop rock and other commercial forms of singing. I have training in all different acting techniques and I focus on audition and competition prep. I help performers fuse their acting and singing but can also focus on one aspect if the student so chooses. I work with many students on college auditions and thespian competitions as well. I teach all ages up to adults since I am also an adjunct faculty and have experience in teaching at the university level.

My daughter loved Melanie!
Sarah
Melanie is an absolutely incredible vocal teacher/coach. I noticed a change in my voice after just the first lesson. Her vast knowledge of the anatomy used to create vocal sounds combined with the techniques she teaches has definitely improved my voice. She taught me how to belt and showed me the difference between my belt and my mix, which was beyond helpful. She also taught me how to sing in my head voice in a healthier and more effective way. And on top of that, she has a mental library full of great song recommendations for my individual voice. Can't wait until our next lesson!

Using techniques and tools I've learned and practiced during my 20+ years experience as a professional singer and stage performer, which I also incorporate into my "Heart Centered Vocal Coaching" programs (see below), I will help and guide you as to get you fully prepared for your on-stage debut or simply to help you better sharpen your current performance skills.

Heart Centered Vocal Coaching

- Find and learn to Love your own voice.
- Learn breathing and vocal/singing techniques and practices. Great breath-work practices.
- Practice the art of Improv, or as I like to call it ... Jazz!!!
- Learn to trust your heart and voice and what it wants to share.
- Learn the art of songwriting. We’ll write your song together.
- My approach is more of a combination between vocal expression and self empowerment.
- And more...

Jason was clear and concise with instruction and spent quite a bit of time outside the 1 hour home instruction class to find suitable monologues.

How to Learn Acting by Studying Your Favorite Actors

We all have our favorite actors – from the captivating smile of Julia Roberts to Leonardo DiCaprio’s boyish charm – but looks aside, there's plenty that goes into sustaining a successful career as an actor amid a sea of driven competitors. 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. In fact, studying the performances of your favorite a …
