I believe the development and training of an artist is a special, sacred, and important act.

If you would like to find more truth, more humor, and more joy in your work as an actor or performing artist, then I would be privileged to help you along that journey!

As a teacher I have taught around the country at universities as a guest artist and faculty member, as well as with performing arts centers from coast to coast. As a practicing artist, I am continually researching new and updated methods and find this passion translates into my lessons with my students.

I believe in positive reinforcement and building upon a student's current skill set, rather than tearing an actor to pieces, in order to bring about the most effective results, all the while finding JOY in the work!

I have performed as an actor, singer, and musician Off-Broadway in New York, on many National tours, and at regional theatres all across the United States. I find this varied experience allows me to

One of the best teachers I have ever had! Chad creates an environment that makes you feel really comfortable with exploring yourself as an actor. Not to mention that fact that he is so kind and genuine. I know I will be forever grateful that our paths crossed!
Claudia
I have worked with probably 4 dozen acting instructors, coaches, directors in my life, and Chad is the BEST OF THE BEST.
Through several years of working with him, I can vouch that with him you always know what you get: 100% quality, all of the time. He is fully present, meets you on eye level, is kind and understanding, and encourages/motivates you to go beyond what you thought was possible.
Whether it is audition prep, Shakespeare scene work, or general acting skills, there is nobody I would trust more than Chad to help me be the best actor I can possibly be.
Most importantly, with Chad I have always felt completely safe to explore characters, inner movements, and feelings in the process.
The only bad thing I can say about Chad is that he will absolutely ruin you for the next coach or director that comes along, since no one can come even close to his quality.
Katie
Chad is incredible at making you feel very comfortable while also challenging you to go beyond what you believe you can do. In every environment that I have worked with him, he has been kind, generous and inspiring. I would recommend him to anyone (young, old, beginner, advanced) in a heart beat. It has changed my life and my career to have learned from him.

Anastassia is a great teacher of dance! She listens and genuinely cares about all her dance students. She has opened my eyes to how dance is not only enjoyable, but can increase your confidence in all aspects of ones life. Going into her studio is feeling like you are part of her family. I moved to Florida six months ago & started taking her classes with my brother ... so happy we found this dance studio!

Just had my first lesson with him, and he was amazing! He's relatable and puts things through a perspective that you wouldn't have ever thought of. 10/10 recommend him, and if I could give more than five stars I would. And I plan on doing lessons with him all throughout high school.
Brandon
Brian is one of the teachers that sticks with you for the rest of your life. He cares about his students and is an excellent teacher. He started me on a journey that had me playing euphonium for years after he moved.
Hunter
Brian is the reason I began to take tuba seriously and I am 100% certain that I wouldn’t be half the musician I am today if it weren’t for him. I took tuba lessons from in high school and he was great at challenging and pushing to get better and better every single lesson we had. I strongly recommend anyone who has the chance to study with him to please take it.

"Where do I even begin? I really cannot recommend Nicholas enough whether you’re somewhat of a professional or just starting out. I’ve always wanted to take Improv classes in a safe and exciting environment. Nicholas is a really talented, thoughtful instructor, and he not only makes you feel extremely comfortable with yourself but he pulls you own of your comfort zone at the same time to challenge yourself. I am so thrilled I started classes. I’ve learnt so many lessons that I can even apply to my daily life. I feel more confident. I’ve learnt to trust my own instincts more. I look forward to working with Nicholas always. It’s always such a great experience that the rest of the day just falls away every single time we have a lesson. It’s amazing to see the difference from when I started out. I highly recommend this instructor!"
