About Barry
Hello! A little about me... I have a Bachelors Degree in Music, 15 years of performing experience, and 10 years of teaching experience. I would love to share what I've learned to help you find your authentic sound. I try to approach each student individually vs treating everyone the same, catering to learning styles and willingness to learn. I hope to see you soon!

*** Lesson Details ***
I think everyone is born with the capacity to sing, with their own unique voice. I think often times we "get in our own way" and hold ourselves back from truly realizing our potential. I would love to help find your true voice so that you can do anything you want, whether it's singing in the shower or in front of thousands of adoring fans at Carnegie Hall!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Practice rooms with upright pianos.

*** Travel Equipment ***
If t
here is no piano, we can work from the mp3 player or a cd player and make it work!

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in Jazz voice, improvisation (scatting) and Broadway singing. I am also trained in Acting.

About Briana
Briana has enjoyed teaching since she was a teaching assistant at Detroit Windsor Dance Academy, her high school dance studio. Since then she has taught students within Washington DC Public Schools, the University of Michigan Recreation Center, the Capitol Hill Arts Workshop, Morton Street Dance Center, District Dance Arts, as well as many other studios and non-profit organizations. Teaching allows her to express herself, pass on her knowledge and experiences and inspire students to develop their technique, creativity, individuality and showmanship.

There is never a dull moment in Briana’s classes! Her specific classes and lesson plans are catered to specific age groups from Pre-K to adults. They consist of engaging movement activities, warm-up, and complex movement combinations. She is an energetic and patient teacher who seriously
takes into account the needs and skill level of the student in preparing her lesson plans and material.

Briana’s use of dance vocabulary and physical demonstrations allow her to teach the material accurately and effectively. Her positive attitude and constant words of encouragement keep students motivated and engaged in the lesson. Students will increase their knowledge and physical vocabulary of the movement style and leave each lesson a better dancer, performer and person.

She received her Bachelor’s of Fine Arts in Dance and Bachelors of Arts in Sociology from the University of Michigan in May of 2013 and has had a wide range of professional experience. She has worked with and performed works by modern dance choreographers such as Lindsey Merchant, Melissa Beck, Germaul Barnes, Jessica Fogel, Christopher Huggins, Shen Wei and Dianne McIntyre. She was artistic director of a chapter of the international hip-hop dance company Dance2XS International.

Briana was a full-time company member with StepAfrika!, a professional stepping company in Washington, DC from 2013-2015 and currently, she is working with CityDance resident artist S.J. Ewing & Dancers. Briana has had the privilege of performing at DC's City Rhythms Festival, Catholic Universities Hartke Theater, the Hill Center, the VelocityDC Festival, the Guantanomo Bay Naval Base as well as others. Recently she was invited to perform a modern dance solo in Dance Place’s 2014 New Releases Choreographers Showcase and Joy of Motions 2014 Dance Project Concert. Most recently, she served as the assistant choreographer on the American Theater’s Company’s production of The Project(s) in Chicago, IL, rated 4 stars by the Chicago Tribune. Most recently, she collaborated with Hard Soles Dance Company on a new piece titled “Re:set”, combining contemporary dance and body percussion, for the 2016 March on Washington Film Festival in honor of the 70th anniversary of the integration of the NFL and was chosen as Dance Place's 2016 New Releases Commission Recipient in support her new work to be premiered the summer of 2017.

Briana encourages students to bring writing materials to each lesson to take notes for any learned vocabulary and each lesson will follow with a recorded video of the movement for the students to refer to until the next lesson.

I'm extremely new to ballet and dance in general (for reference I'm 16). Briana was very patient and an amazing teacher! Very friendly and welcoming while still being very professional. It's great to get the exact corrections I need without feeling bad about it and yet still work on it until proper. Very happy and pleased!

Hi! I'm Rachel! Teaching people how to sing with ease is my passion. I teach in Orange County, Los Angeles, and online.

In year 2008 I became the single youngest person to be accepted into the world renowned Speech Level Singing International teacher training and certification program. I took vocal master classes and was trained and certified as a vocal coach directly by Seth Riggs, the international authority on vocal instruction who trained artists like Michael Jackson, Josh Groban, Stevie Wonder and hundreds of other Grammy Award winning singers.


My goal with my voice students is to teach them how to use their voice in a healthy and natural way while maintaining the sound that got them recognition, as well as help beginners find their style. With proper technique, singing becomes as easy as speaking. Using science and understanding a singers genetic abilities, I teach my students how to get a beautiful balance between air and muscle to create a resonance that a singer can grow a wide range and build strength on without having any breaks in their voice.

Rachel is professional, approachable, and extremely talented teacher! I definitely recommend her teaching an recording services. I received voice lessons to record for my husband's wedding present. I sang a song called "Still" by Hillsong and accompanied it with my own piano playing. My husband enjoyed the recording very much. Without Reed Vocal Studio, I would not have been able to give the gift of music to my husband. I do not regret having Rachel as my teacher and as my recording engineer. I added my recording on Sound Cloud if anyone is interested in taking a peak at what it is like to record music with Rachel. Let me tell you, she is amazing! Five stars all the way!!

Enjoy :)

About JAMES
Hello and congrats on taking this big step. I have been acting since I was 15 years old. A theatre major in HS and College doing Theatre, Film, TV, Industrials and Commercials. I even got my first agent when I was only 15 years old, booking my first 1 liner speaking role on the "who shot JR" episode of Dallas in 1980.

I have worked with and interned with some of the biggest Casting Directors, Directors and Producers in CA, TX, and GA. Learning the Do's and Don'ts in the business and for acting, auditioning and taping.

I work from a "real' actor stand point, but certainly believe in the Method and Technique when they are needed, so those are also taught. But remember, they are hiring you, so that is where the character's life begins!

I also had a real life and was a police officer for 30 years while I continued to act.
Now that I am r
etired I spend my days acting, teaching and coaching actors for self tape and "in person" auditions online or out of my house in the Atlanta Metro Area.

Thank you for giving me this opportunity to help you to move your career to that next level.

Break a leg!

"I have worked with James on a few auditions and I can tell you that his previous experience in law enforcement and his amazing acting career helped him give me great adjustments! Those adjustments, and some were just the slightest adjustments, changed everything in playback! I highly recommend working with him! He makes the environment safe and his setup is professional! Check him out!"

James takes the time to give you valuable feedback and redirection. Allowing you to get a different perspective or approach that you might not have thought of. This often results in a reading that sets you apart from what everyone else is submitting. I highly recommend him for helping you advance your acting career.

About Michael
Hi friends,

It is nice to meet you! I am 'Emmy Nominated' actor and twenty five year veteran actor on the longest running show in broadcast history The Guiding Light. In addition, I was a three time nominee for best actor for the Soap Opera Digest Awards. I was fortunate to study acting from the legendary acting teacher Stella Adler and Larry Moss. I'm also a student and performer from the highly acclaimed Improv group 'The Groundlings'.

I've been fortunate to be a working actor most of my life. My credits include the recurring role of Dr. Stewart Farmingham on the popular ABC series Doogie Howser, M.D.and Paul in It's a Small World, part of an anthology series produced by David Lynch for HBO and Lead featured roles in Law and Order. I have booked numerous lead roles in feature films and off-Broadway and in national television commer
cials. My American Express commercial won the ESPY award for best commercial of the year.

In the fall of 2010, I started Studio 47 Productions to be a leader to effective branding with original content for web streaming. I soon partnered with ConvergTV's, The Venture Channel. I was proud to announce distribution of my award winning comedy soap spoof, Steamboat now available on Roku and NetTalk.

My first play as a playwright, 'Breathing Under Dirt' was recently awarded ''Best Play' at the Manhattan Repertory One Act Festival in March.' Breathing Under Dirt' has since been expanded to a full length play and launched its world Premier at the Ella Fitzgerald Theater in Maryland to rave reviews. ' Breathing Under Dirt' is now getting Broadway consideration with the highly acclaimed director Larry Moss at the helm. I have just completed my second play 'Red Rain' which explores the themes of war and peace that collide within a family during the Vietnam War.' Red Rain' is currently being work shopped in NYC for a production launch in early 2020.

Enough about me! I am on this site as my true passion is building successful acting careers. Just so you know, I am a nuts and bolt guy. There is a clear road map to increase your chances of success that I will give you. The fact is casting directors have made a DECISION about you before you even open your mouth. I will empower your' actor’s ego' so that you will own any room you walk in.
I want to learn about you and your goals. Let's start! Just want to wish you success on your journey.

Kind regards,

Michael
