He is excellent. I have mild autism and thus very little facial expression but he is teaching me how to change that.

Big fan of Corbin's. He knows his stuff and explains things in very understandable manner. I have seen dramatic improvement in just three lessons. He has good "take-home" exercises to build on each lesson.

My son is 16 and has been taking lessons with sandra since November of 2014. Sandra not only focuses on singing techniques to build your support and vocal strength, but also helps with understanding sheet music and acting within a musical piece. She is extremely personable and friendly. She has helped my son expand his vocal range, and she taught him vocal techniques to use to develop his voice. My son does musical theatre, and Sandra has taken a significant amount time during each lesson to help him sing the songs comfortably and understand the acting stand point in each song. She is a great teacher for him.

My daughter is 14 years old and we needed some help with an acting role for her school musical. Sandra was wonderful, in a brief time she was able to help her understand that it is important to own the role. I feel as though my daughter came a long way. My daughter did get the role that she auditioned for in her High School play and she is only a freshman. Thanks very much Sandra!

I am a private student of Sandra’s and have been studying singing with her for two years. I decided to study with Sandra because I know that she has a lot of professional experience on stage. I am mainly interested in musical theater, and Sandra has helped me find suitable songs for my voice. She works on breathing and building a solid technique which one can rely on. She has also helped me to develop as an actor, so that I feel completely comfortable with performing. I would highly recommend her.
Tiffany B. Philadelphia, PA

Beginner Intro Classes: Using various theatre games, improvisation, acting exercises and beginning scene work, you will become familiar with acting modes and gain an stronger understanding of the craft. Students also become more familiar with the vocabulary and techniques every actor must know.

Intermediate Developmental Classes: At this level the focus is on the proper approach to scene work and character development by using what the playwright has given you on the page. The student will reveal their artistry while simultaneously building their ability and vocabulary for further advanced study. Students will focus intensely on one full-length scene throughout the semester once again utilizing theatre exercises, script analysis and reading to bring the scene to life.

Advanced Mastery Classes: These classes are designed for the serious student in preparation for an audition or role. This course functions as an intensive scene-study module focusing on making strong choices ...

Ms. Tiffany taught the fifth graders at our school to ballroom dance through the "Dancing Classrooms" program. The children loved their lessons and they have a lot to show for them! Ms. Tiffany anticipated their questions before they asked them and was able to work with all of the students. We definitely recommend her to others!
Aaron K. Haddon Heights, NJ

I studied Stanislavski's late method of acting in my undergraduate. Everything in my method is action based and involves making specific decisions and making sure you're actually doing what you intend to do.

About aaron

I have a bachelor's degree in music from University of Miami with a minor in acting and have just finished my Master's degree in vocal performance from Texas Tech University. At Texas Tech I held my own private studio for two years. During that time I taught students of all levels in various styles ranging from classical to music theater, to rock and pop.

Teaching really is a great pleasure for me.

Becca K. Philadelphia, PA

I have been an acting couch for 3 years, and my students have gone on to college acceptances, regional theatre, and even Broadway!

My most important goal is to prepare students with the tools to approach text by themselves. We will discuss character development and create a history for the character utilizing the clues provided in the script. We discuss the basics of many different acting techniques and the student will leave with a useful vocabulary to bring to the work. Due to my location, I can grant students access to a vast library of theatrical text. This class will require a lot of reading, and memorizing.

Becca was one of the best acting teachers I've worked with. She's incredibly professional as well as really nice and is super dedicated to her craft. I considered taking off one star only because I'm not from the south broad area and I had difficulty reaching the location from my high school, but that's more my fault than her's. Becca helped me get a role in my high school play of Hamlet. I've since gone off to college, otherwise I would still be seeing her!

She's definitely been a blessing to my Spoken Word poetry experience. Her ability to thoroughly critique both poetry and performances has helped me develop. I don't see myself participating in any slam season without having her as my mentor.
