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.

I got my start in the 80s at Stand Up NY comedy club. Throughout my life as a serious concert pianist, musician, writer and educator, comedy has been a shelter and a lifesaver. I met Woody Allen for conversation and some comparative opinions on his work, our favorite book stores, etc and it sparked a further desire to do some acting in film, writing and improvisation. As an improvisor in my own field of music, improvisation always came naturally to me.

I learned how to deal with stage fright from my professional family of musicians and some of the greatest teachers/performers of the world with whom I studied at Juilliard. Yes, the same place that saw Robin Williams and Kline and others do their thing. I hung out with actors on the third floor when I was not rehearsing music on the 5th. Made friends. Lived in LA. Wrote music and acted for films. Got published. Started a comedy concert tour aboard the historic Delta Queen steamboat line in New Orleans all the way to ...

Joseph has a wealth of knowledge about speaking, listening, vocals, etc.

He created a welcoming environment in our online lessons that made it easy to be vulnerable and get right to working on new skills.

I highly recommend for others looking to better understand their voice and communication style, and learn to hone them.
Catherine K.
Joseph put us at ease immediately. Our first lesson included valuable information on how to warm up our voices, increase our range and protect our voices. We look forward to our next lesson.
Donna
I have been studying piano with Joseph for nearly five years. In that time, I’ve learned more about the piano and musical interpretation than I ever thought possible.

Joseph’s technical ‘short cuts’ are amazing! He illustrates ways for your hands and your mind to work that are tailor made for you. Learning from him is so fun it seems almost effortless.

The way Joseph teaches allows you to develop at your own pace. The atmosphere is always relaxed yet everything moves along quickly.

At the open classes I attend, his other students are progressing very rapidly too. After each class, we share our impressions. The mood is elated because it feels like we stepped back in time and into history.

Joseph often quotes inspired wisdom of his historic teachers in our lessons. He is a great inspiration on his own with great musical insights.

I’m playing Beethoven and Chopin works I never thought I could approach at this stage of study, with great depth of understanding. I now play with greater passion and skill, get compliments from everyone I play for, and no longer worry about playing in public.

I look forward to each and every lesson with Joseph. His encouragement and support makes learning so rewarding! Anyone who finds this musical treasure is a lucky person and I cannot recommend him highly enough.

Learning Argentine Tango can change your life in numerous ways. I know, because I teach it for like - forever. Special people start learning the Tango and this is not without reason. We have a saying - you do not choose Tango. Tango chooses you. And when the time is right - you will encounter it.

I am not gonna lie to you. It will not be easy. But it is the best thing you will ever do for Your Partner and Yourself! Argentine Tango is not just a dance.
My partner and I think of an Argentine Tango as a Philosophy of Life. People who join us on the journey to discovery usually stay for years. I would say forever, but that's. a tricky word since I had not experienced foreverness quite yet... It would indicate immortality, right?

Tango is a dance based on communication between two bodies - the dance is improvised. That means the Leader proposes the movement to the Follower in response to what she confirms the understanding of it and interprets it in the way she and her body understood ...

About Hernan

Hernan has taught and performed at various festivals, milongas, and studios in New York and Massachusetts as well as in Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Ireland, and Argentina. He was a principal dancer in the off-Broadway dance play Let's Speak Tango and choreographed and starred in the short film

As a Casting Associate, theatre instructor, and former actor, I've worked with children in musical theatre, commercials, and film/TV. My favorite part about coaching children is their ability to embrace the funny, silly, most creative parts of who they are!

I'm excited to help your child prepare for a musical theatre audition, create a self-tape for a commercial or film/TV role, put together a reel, or create a book of songs, scenes and monologues that they love to perform. As an instructor, I lead with kindness, empathy and warmth; I believe that if a student comes to lessons excited to learn and explore, they will get SO much more out of our time together.

For working child actors, we can explore material at a deeper level and really help prepare your child to succeed in a professional setting. Since so much of our industry has shifted online, we can work to create a dance, voice and acting reel, coach audition sides, and discuss marketing strategy.

About Fiona

I'm a Casting Associate with a background as a working Actors Equity Association actor. I graduated with a BFA in Musical Theatre from Montclair State University and have extensive training in voice, acting and dance.

For insightful feedback, I always connect with Fiona. Her years of experience as a child performer who went through the rigorous application process for post-secondary education, followed by her own inspiring career as a performer, and now as someone who sits on many audition panels, she offers an informed perspective that is useful for performers of any level. The love she has for musical theatre radiates through all of her work and she brings an incredible generosity to her teaching. She is someone you can count on!!
Catherine Daly
Fiona is an exceptional teacher! She has worked with some of my younger students and not only has the knowledge of the art, but the patience and kindness to communicate it in an engaging manner. I highly recommend any class she is offering.
Samuel
While only in her 20s, Fiona is already a seasoned entertainment professional. Her career has ranged from teaching, to performing, to now sitting on the other side of the table as a casting associate, Fiona has a wide range of industry knowledge. Her passion for art gives her a keen eye to zero in on even the smallest of details. She’s helped me prep for theatre, film, television, and commercial auditions. Fiona’s direct but kind approach allowed me to feel so comfortable in the studio so I could easily discover knew choices. I can’t recommend her enough!

Dance is an amazing gift used to express how we feel and what we believe. It tells a story, oftentimes our own. I believe in teaching the art of how to freely express yourself through telling a story with every move. Whether you are a trained dancer or a beginner, you have the right to express yourself through creative movement and I can help you with that.

About Tomecia

I am a lover of dance. I believe dance builds confidence, strength, courage and discipline. I have danced all my life and for the past 18 years have had the privilege of leading two dance ministries. One for 7 years and the other for the past 11 years. I believe dance is one of our greatest forms

I have been impacted by Minister Tomecia in such a little time. New to the dance ministry as a whole she introduced flags to me and I have since been invited to minister at several different events and Engagements paid and unpaid and for that I am truly grateful. Not to mention time I call with questions and she gives me unbiased answers to help me grow along the way. Definitely a jewel in my eyes. I call her my dance mom honestly­čśü

Soon, I was so caught up in the meaning of the lines and the story I was telling in that moment that I was able to engage in the role, smoothly, without worrying that I was performing Shakespeare. He broke it down so I could understand it, and then feel confident doing it. Highly recommend!"
