Also known as voice-over. Any time you hear the voice, but do not see the face connected to it. The unseen announcer, animations, supplying the voice for another actor.

So much of communication on stage, or in TV or film is done with body language, facial expressions, movements, actions, and voice to tell the story. A voice-over artist has to do it all with just her voice.

I have had the best time learning how to sing with Susan! She is so patient and kind, and has such a great way of helping me actually visualize how I can make corrections in my singing. It has been such a pleasure and is a real highlight of my week. And--bonus--I have really progressed!

I firmly believe that the ability to act well resides within every person who has the desire to act. In order to access this ability, actors need to develop a strong sense of self, increase their confidence, and rid themselves of the habitual tensions that hold them back. Therefore, I believe good actor training is personal, individualized, and focused on self discovery.

Lessons with me will focus first and foremost on discovering and honoring yourself as a person and an artist, and then on developing your relationship with the text. We can work on a specific piece or pieces (for an audition or a performance), or on plays, scenes or monologues that we choose together, to help develop you as a performer. No matter what, text we choose, we will focus on you speaking own personal truth through your performance.

I have recently been accepted into an elite graduate actor training program, and so I have had experience and success at preparing school auditions. I can help you put ...

Working with Ryan is always a delight! He has helped me improve my confidence so much, and I feel so much more prepared for my auditions now. His method of teaching and the environment he creates in his lessons makes me feel safe to take risks with my acting in ways I never have before. Thanks for everything Ryan!

Ready to experience the expressive power of Tango music? All String Instruments are Welcome to join!!
Over the past decades, Tango, and mostly Astor Piazzolla's music ("New Tango") has been slowly gaining it's place in the repertoire of renowned classical and jazz musicians, orchestras, Suzuki methods, competitions, as well as in movies and shows all over the globe. Born in suburbs of Rio de la Plata at the end of the 19th century as an original artistic expression of the exceptional cultural diversity of authentical local population with Afro-Cuban and European immigration, Tango's passion and sensitivity had spread worldwide at the beginning of the 20th century. The evolution of this popular artistic expression, which interconnects music, dance and poetry, has been continuously contributing to cultural exchange, diversity and dialogue between the people all around the globe.

The totor is not responsive. She doesn't collaborate with the student to accommodate her needs. There was no class on 12th March and I do not see a response to my query from the tutor yet. Very non-coperative attitude.

Raycurt is not only knowledgeable, he is extremely skilled. He is thorough and maximizes time by providing superb instruction. My son looks forward to attending his classes; and I am a parent who is beyond pleased with Raycurt’s level of expertise.
Ben E.
This was a really unfortunate and wasted experience. Raycurt was wildly unprepared to teach. He brought a broken metronome and almost no sheet music/lesson plan. I had spoken both to the sales rep and Raycurt himself prior to the lesson and he was still fully unprepared.

I also explained my level of experience and was assured Raycurt was qualified to teach at the level I needed, but he came off as less knowledgable than me, which was particularly disappointing.

Worst of all, after multiple hours of speaking on the phone, I couldn't get my money back for this lesson.

I'd strongly recommend not using takelessons at all, they've put a horrible taste in my mouth for their entire service.
