Michael K.

Denton, TX

general "looseness" of character

About michael

I have studied guitar thoroughly for the past 5 years. Its wonders have brought me immense joy and serenity. I want each and every student to discover the magic that music creates in our lives and the lives of others around us. Along with the disciplinary aspects of practice, learning an instrument such as the guitar can open imaginary doors like no other instrument. The musical possibilities are endless.

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons with me can be either good or great. I am pretty laid back, but keep a strict tone at times. I like to form great working relationships, as well as lastin
g friendships with my students. I like to get to know who they are and what they love. It helps me discover how and what to teach them. People are different and like different things, so it is part of my job to ensure that they are enjoying what they are learning. I don't spoil them with pop songs though. I use many traditional, classically involved studies and techniques, as well as all the knowledge that I have obtained from college curriculum. Lessons will include: aural skills, theory, history, and maybe even some jokes here and there.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Piano, guitars, marimba, amps.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Guitar, books, amps, tuners, metronomes and whatever else they might need for guitar. I would expect them to provide at least a guitar for themselves. It would be nice for them to have the above I listed but all they really need is a way to practice.

*** Specialties ***
I mainly play classical guitar and flamenco. I do dabble in other styles just to keep it challenging.

TOYA N.

Dallas, TX

I have a Masters degree in Acting from the acclaimed Actors Studio Drama School in Manhattan, so I am well versed in most every acting technique; including Stanislavski, Strasberg, Meisner, Chekov, Hagen, Stella Adler, and beyond. I've taught acting to children, teens, and adults in the US and abroad since 2005 and my students are working! My main goal is to help you to develop your own set of tools for practicing the craft of acting, and to better understand your unique voice as an artist. Make sure to wear clothing you can move in during our sessions, and, most importantly, explore and just have fun!

About TOYA

I have taught acting to small children, teens, and adults in community, private, and collegiate settings. I taught acting at the legendary Lee Strasberg Theatre Institute in New York City. My love of the arts has enabled me to study and perform in various cities throughout the US; including Los Angeles, where I studied at the Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute, to Europe, Mexico, South America; then back to New York City, where I earned a Master of Fine Arts degree in Acting from the prestigious Actors Studio Drama School.

I currently work professionally as an actor, singer, and TV
and radio host. I've been fortunate enough to work in film, TV, theater, musical theater, hosting, commercials, improv, and voice-overs. I am also a vocally trained mezzo-soprano. Because I am still a working artist, I can not only teach you craft, but can assist you in making the right choices to navigate your own way in the business. I offer private coaching to actors in theater and film, and singers in the US and abroad. I would love to share my knowledge and experience with you.

*** Lesson Details ***
I offer private coaching to children, teens, adults who have an interest in acting or singing performance, and for those who simply have an interest in performing or speaking in front of others. In addition to coaching those who wish to better their skills in acting, voice and speech, and singing, I also offer coaching for non-actors; i.e., attorneys, business professionals, teachers, politicians, pageant participants, and other creatives, who want to improve their public speaking and communication skills.

Meisner Technique · In studio
John is a very grounded teacher. He helps you learn by doing, and gives you a sense of security in the process. He doesn't let your discomfort in learning cause him to stray from the purpose, and he challenges you to grow through it. He made me feel completely comfortable being myself and doing what I needed in order to learn the techniques he taught. I would highly recommend John as a teacher.

We are three lessons in, and I've come to understand more about acting and how I fit into it personally than I ever have even after several decades of participation. The lessons are useful and enjoyable, the homework is fair, and I think you should take advantage of the fact that you can just simply sign-up, pay a lil' money, and have access to such a great mentor/teacher!

Donald R.

Dallas, TX

Children and adults welcome. I provide acting coaching from ages 4-adult in acting for film, theatre, and techniques such as classical, Meisner, Method, and Stanislavsky.

About Donald

I have established myself as an accomplished actor and acting coach who has been teaching acting classes for over 10 years. As acting is an ongoing learning process, I audit the classes of the best coaches from NY to LA to bring those acting techniques to my students online as well as my in-studio classes. In addition to teaching online, I have taught in-studio classes at Kids International in Washington DC, Take 3 Talent and Product Management in NYC, and Page Parkes School of Acting in Dallas to name a few.

My approach to acting covers the entire theme of "Show Business". The "Show" is
represented by the skill training techniques involved in my training to give an actor the skills to be the best actor. The "Business" aspect reflects the more technical side of acting such as what the auditors are looking for, how to stand out on the audition, and how to carry yourself as a professional to beget more work.

My training style involves tactile, audible, and visual aspects of training to ensure maximum absorption of the material. Meanwhile, I guarantee to make it fun!
