About Emily

Whether the focus of a session is on building a stellar repertoire of audition pieces, working on a difficult role, getting deeper into the language of Shakespeare, or song-as-monologue work for musical theater actors, my approach to private coaching is centered around meeting the needs of the client. My goal is to help you reach yours through the development of technique, confidence, and helpful tools you can use to further cultivate your talent outside of our sessions.

I had my first lesson with Emily yesterday and I loved it! She was easy to talk to and super nice. She also had great tips to give me and helped me a lot and it has only been one day. I really like the way she teaches and I would highly recommend her.

About Sara Ann

I pace our lessons and over explain a technic to make certain the client gets the concept in a HUMORFUL, JOYFUL way. Patiently we apply it to a song that is your target song or to how and what you want product or YOU you want to sell to clients/your job/your promotion/ your new career.
With two masters degrees in voice and speech-language pathology, with specializing in eliminating chronic hoarseness and giving you the perfect foreign accent, I am a premier singing teacher who still sings at jazz jams sessions and former university professor of Kristin Linklater and Alexander methods. I previously was a full time professor of voice and music education, a Fulbright instrumental/vocal teacher at high school level, an elementary music supervisor. Presently, I am a film experienced screener for festivals, play bass guitar, I teach in pers

on onsite in a group, on Skype, and in Buckhead Atlanta 1:1 pitching your voice as an actor or salesman or singer. Clients love how I mold at least one technique to your speaking & singing voice the first 30 minute session.

Sara was wonderful. She taught me NVC framework that was very much helpful in sharing my feelings with another person. I highly recommend her to anyone who wants to improve social communication skills. I am going to take her class again once my work has slowed down!

Sara Ann is amazing! I absolutely loved the lessons with her. She is definitely an expert. Not only she spotted all my bad habits with pronunciation and provided exercises and training to get rid of them, but she also made every lesson fun.

I had 4 lessons with her so far, now waiting for my last one. She asked me to tell her what I would like from her for my last lesson... honestly, I want her to keep doing what she's been doing - nothing different. I don't think a teacher can get any better than her!

Thanks, Sara Ann!

About Rachel

Hi! My name is Rachel, and I have been teaching lessons professionally for over 10 years now. My primary instruments are voice and piano, and I also teach music theory/ear training/musicianship skills. I earned my degree in vocal performance from James Madison University, where I taught lessons to non-music majors as well as tutored general music for the student population. I also hold a masters degree in voice performance and pedagogy from the Peabody Conservatory. I would describe my teaching style as fun and relaxed, with a strong emphasis on healthy technique. I believe that all students should have a strong technical foundation, and that begins on day one. Genres I teach include classical, musical theatre, pop, and accompanying skills for pianists. I can also help with audition prep on both instruments. I look forward to meeting with

you!

Madeline is always so welcoming and encouraging to our 16 year old daughter.
She is flexible, too, and has been willing to work with our schedule this summer in order to help as much as possible. We also appreciate her willingness to do lessons both in person and online. Our daughter has learned so much and her singing confidence has grown already. We are so grateful!

Melanie is an absolutely incredible vocal teacher/coach. I noticed a change in my voice after just the first lesson. Her vast knowledge of the anatomy used to create vocal sounds combined with the techniques she teaches has definitely improved my voice. She taught me how to belt and showed me the difference between my belt and my mix, which was beyond helpful. She also taught me how to sing in my head voice in a healthier and more effective way. And on top of that, she has a mental library full of great song recommendations for my individual voice. Can't wait until our next lesson!

Carolyn German has been absolutely wonderful to work with. She's a great combination of friendly, yet professional, and brings many years of varied experience to her craft into the teaching experience. She's very easy to work with, I never felt self-conscious about any of what I consider to be my flaws, and she has truly helped me to develop more well-rounded characters, as well as some very much needed self-confidence.

"She is great!!!"
Armayia
"It’s very comfortable talking with and learning from her!"
Aaron
"After signing up for Sean's tap dancing lessons, I was a bit concerned I wouldn't be able to keep up. I've seen his performances, and he is top notch. Sta
rting out, I had no rhythm or skill.

We started out with in-home lessons, and after just 4 hours of training my wife was ready to buy the shag carpeting I'd always dreamed of!

All kidding aside, Sean is a fantastic teacher and a great friend. I would highly recommend taking a lesson with him for any of his many talents. He is easy to talk to, listens well, and provides great feedback. Thanks, Sean!"

"The acupuncturist of Zouk💞

I went in for a checkup because my zouk was unaligned & here is the treatment i received:
1. Honest feedback
2. Invest in
understanding his students
3. Patient
4. Clear instruction (precise like a surgeon)
5. Calm & joyful energy/vibes

Tom is freggin' great! 1st of all... he waited up for me when i got lost getting to his house lol but something that really stands out to me about Tom is not only does he love the dance & gives it his all but he also extends that same love of dance & 💯 effort to teaching. In no way does any advice or instruction feel half-done with Tom. He actually cares about his students progress. His feedback is always said gently which makes it easier to understand without feeling pathetic lol (for realz). He is a joy to learn, dance, talk, drink water with etc. lol I would freggin' recommend his lessons to any & everybody! DO IT!!!"

"Nicolas is one of the best mentor I have ever came across. He is passionate about teaching and able to help you draw out the inner you. I was someone who
had a great deal of struggle connecting with my emotions and being able to express it in a sensible way. Within few weeks he taught me how to tap into my feelings and express it outwards. Needless to say he is an impressive teacher and if you have the chance, visit him. It will be beneficial for your personal life and career."

By Suzy S.
