Jan is a fun and dynamic instructor whose patience and attention to the needs of her students has been instrumental in helping my daughter enjoy and thrive in her voice and piano lessons. While some instructors, in our experience, have been excellent musicians but poor teachers, Jan's style and flexibility make her an ideal person for passing on her knowledge to students, so that they in turn develop their own musical talents and shine. Many thanks, Jan, for your gifts!

About Helen
If you like to sing and want to learn how to be a better singer, you don't have to have any previous experience or training. I specialize in teaching beginning singers of any age how to sing using the classic technique that is the foundation for singing any genre or style of music from Bach to Broadway. You will learn how to make a beautiful sound when you sing and work on presentation, acting, diction, style, and artistry choosing music that you like and building a repertoire of music that you will enjoy singing.

Training for beginning voice students is significantly different than it is for those who have had training. Some have beautiful natural voices but they strain to hit the high notes, Exercises build breath support and slowly increase your range Music is carefully chosen to help you sing with ease build a stronger more reson
ant voice

Some children also have beautiful natural voices, but they are not ready for the kind of voice training that is appropriate for an adult. A child's voice is small in every sense of the word. They cannot produce the volume or range that an adult can without straining their voice. They can learn the fundamentals of music, how to read music, how to count, rhythm and musicality. The music chosen for them needs to be easy to sing and age-appropriate Songs that a child likes that are too high can easily be re-arranged in a different key so they can sing music that they like without straining their voice.

If you are considering voice lessons for you or your child, it is a good way to develop musicianship and build a repertoire of music that you will enjoy singing. The training will be enjoyable and very effective. You will begin to see an improvement in technique after the first lesson.

I was trained in voice performance at the Cleveland Institute of Music and hold a degree from Case Western Reserve University where in art and music theory. I have more than twenty years of professional experience including singing with a Chorale that performed with the Cleveland Symphony and performances as a soloist for choirs in Ohio and Michigan.

I founded and directed the Academie des Beaux-Arts, a performing arts school in Birmingham, and the Actors Alliance Theatre, a professional theater company that gave many young people an opportunity to gain experience working with professional actors. I have a combination of skills in voice and theater performance that sets me apart as a teacher who can help you develop a better singing voice and learn how to perform with artistry.

About David
I am a professional actor and Career Consultant. I attended Wayne State University for Acting.

Acting students can expect to improve week to week in their acting technique. Every actor has a unique personality. I teach students to discover their own personality and join that personality to the role they wish to play. I provide 5 unique steps that the student can readily apply with any character.
I can help any student to act with freedom, confidence, and expression.

I teach acting students of all different ages and experience levels. I've studied acting for over 20 years and continue to act in film, theater and television.
As a professional actor I frequently take classes to perfect my craft. I am currently writing a film script and a book for actors.

My personal passion is helping others become the greatest actor or actress they
can be and I firmly believe that great technique is essential to any and every acting style. I look forward to helping you to become a better actor.

I have been taking acting lessons from Alyssia for years and could not be more thankful for the ways she has helped me perfect my craft. She is always coming up with ways that I can stand out in my auditions and in my tapes. I really appreciate how she always makes herself available to me, and it is now so convenient that she can come to my home to coach & tape. I have booked several jobs because of her tapes and am beyond grateful for her services!

About Jared
Having studied directly with one of Hollywood's respected acting coaches, Gordon Michaels for two years, I went on to star in the feature film Courageous Love with Hollywood veteran Patricia Mauceri from ABC soap opera, One Life to Live. I then received the Best Actor award for two short films, one I directed and both I starred in, at the Michigan Film Society Film Challenge and both films earned nominations at the Annual Eclipse Awards 2018.

Through this experience I have developed an approach to acting that I believe to be both effective for creating convincing performances and efficient for any actor to learn from, whether beginning or experienced.

All good acting is internal, connected, and experienced; both by the actor as well as the audience and I will teach you how to do just that!
