I am an active performer and have been teaching voice for 9 years. I tailor each lesson to the student's needs and create a supportive and nurturing environment, which gives the student the opportunity to try new things out and take risks. For Stage Performance, I will help the student learn how to take work accomplished in the studio to the stage.

Jamie is a natural teacher of her craft! Her ability to quickly assess and adapt lessons to my daughters’ personalities and preferences of music, as well as her incredibly positive and encouraging demeanor, has made taking voice lessons a great learning experience for both of them. She is very dedicated to finding ways that work for each student to understand how to use their voice and find their breath, and even given the current circumstances of having lessons via FaceTime because of social distancing, the quality and level of expertise of her lessons have not faltered in the least. We are fans!
Marie
Jamie's approachable and friendly personality is reflected in her teaching style - she is not afraid to have you try various unconventional techniques that turn out to be super effective and fun! In the year I've been taking lessons with her, my breath support, technique, and vocal range have all improved significantly - so much so that a high note that I found strenuous a year ago is now almost within my comfort range! She is very receptive to different styles of music, and her suggestions are always challenging, fun, and geared towards developing your voice.
Lena
Jamie is a fantastic voice teacher. She is extremely patient and encouraging with me as a beginner. I started with hardly any experience at all, and my singing has already improved significantly after only 8 weeks of lessons. She helped me with song choice and voice repertoire, but is also open to my suggestions. I can highly recommend her for anyone who has been thinking about voice lessons, but has not had the courage to start, even at an older age. Just give it a try!

Chad S.
A truly gifted instructor. I came to Jennie with zero acting experience. She was able to patiently and carefully guide me to focus on my scene and most importantly how to RELAX and let the scene flow. Her knowledge of acting techniques and tips is unparalleled. She teaches you how to look at the scene as a whole and truly understand what your character is feeling. I highly recommend Jennie to anyone who is interested in learning more about acting.

Alyssa is the best. I had a little less than a month to pick two contrasting monologues for an audition. Alyssa sent me a monologue that’s was absolutely amazing. Alyssa is patient, knowledgeable, and a ton of fun. Completely down to earth. (Judgment free zone). I would refer Alyssa to any and everybody. Amazing experience.
Salien H.
First session was basically a meet and greet, and I must say, she's got a pretty awesome personality as well as a very open and free flow vibe.
Nicholas
Alyssa is great. She has an in-depth knowledge of multiple teaching techniques that will help you improve as an actor. She is also extremely flexible and will tailor lessons to focus on what aspects of acting you wish to improve and what teaching methods help the most.

I am certified in Kuchipudi dance and would love to share my knowledge about this dance. I have been practicing this dance form since my childhood and I have earned a four year certification in theoretical and practical art of Kuchipudi.
Kuchipudi is one of the seven indian classical dance form. It is one of the oldest dance forms of indian culture which is usually based on fast rhythmic patterns complemented by a very flexible and mobile upper body. Its also a great form of exercise which involves graceful body and eye movements.

"Nino is teaching my daughter breakdancing. She’s 5, and the lessons are online, so it could be very difficult with another instructor. But Nino keeps the time really fun while still making sure she understands and can execute the basics. She’s learned more from him in two lessons than she did in 1.5 years of beginners group dance, and she loves it!!!! Thanks Nino!!!! :)"
