Nicholas has been teaching my daughter vocal lessons for about 11 months and he’s fantastic!

She’s improved so much in 10 months! He’s awesome and delivers results! My daughter enjoys her lessons with him and she’s just 9 years old and has developed so much due to his mentor ship. My daughter also has an aptitude for singing and tends to catch on to his instructions quickly.

I found the instructor to be very patient and experienced. I am a beginner and have no experience with playing the piano and hopefully will learn from her experience.
Matthew
What can I say about Kalyse because there are not enough words to do so, however I will try and sum it up. Kalyse is truly gifted in many areas from acting to musical. Her acting skills are phenomenal and her voice is simply amazing on all levels. She is multitalented, innovative, assertive, and very caring. I would recommend anything on the spectrum for her.
Thandiwe Thomas
I’ve hired Kalyse as an actor multiple times. She’s also a great pianist and guitarist. Anyone would be lucky to have her as their instructor.

My daughter and I are very happy and pleased with the class my daughter had today with Nikisha. The knowledge and skill that she uses to teach teens how to properly take care of their skin on top of how to properly apply makeup the correct way and not going over the top is wonderful. She helped my daughter feel more confident in her technique when applying makeup. She answered all questions that my daughter asked. Nikisha was very professional and I appreciate her craft and time today just simply amazing!!

Zach is a fantastic instructor. He is a true coach, and has an insight into script analysis without all the bull, being able to help you pull the truth out of a scene whilst keeping it simple. Highly recommended.
Ryan
Zach is a great instructor! He’s very encouraging & gave me great advice/direction as I begin film school. Would definitely recommend!
Rachel
Zach is perhaps one of the smartest and most well rounded artists I've met. He has experience in all aspects of the business, from being an actor to a producer and to an award winning director, which makes him an unbelievable resource and teacher. I always look forward to our time together because I feel supported, heard, seen and never judged. He is always one step ahead which allows for very productive sessions. I leave our sessions feeling confident and fully prepared for whatever may come my way in auditions. I've worked with many people in this business and you do not come across people like him often. I feel incredibly grateful that I have Zach as a coach and resource. I cannot recommend him enough or give him higher praise.

"It really is more (Voice Acting) Script interpretation, and Diction; how to pronounce words in a script or paragraph, correctly. Fawn didn't waste any time, I was concerned about my Skype audio, no problem, and after a little wrangling, I figured out how to send her an audio file, and script I wanted her to look over.
She made notes, gave me suggestions, made comments on what I sent her, I'll do my home work; because I want to improve,and we'll do it again next week; same time time, same station... Sorry couldn't help that! She's the kind of coach I need right now!"

"Taking this class was one of the best decisions I have ever made. I can't say enough good things about Vixen and this wonderful class. I was a burlesque singer for a troupe when I was diagnosed with vocal cord damage. I was instructed by my doctor stop singing immediately and make all kinds of lifestyle changes. So while on vocal rest it was suggested that I take a class and start working on other burlesque skills that didn't require me to sing.

I had taken Vixen's intro class the year before, just before a show that required me to dance, and I needed some confidence to be get through that show. I'm not a dancer. That one hour did the trick. I had an amazing time, met new people, and walked out of there feeling awesome. The night of the show I was confident and calm and pretty good.

I talked to Vixen about my situation and she was super encouraging. I wasn't really sure if this was a good idea for me try dancing. She said there are all kinds of different acts in burlesque that I could do. And because she had seen me sing, she said I was a natural at performing and that I could definitely embrace something new. I walked into that class with a bunch jumbled ideas as to what I wanted to do. And with each class the number I was developing was coming into shape with the help of Vixen. When I had freakouts about wardrobe malfunctions she gave helpful suggestions as to how to get around them. When I freaked out in general, she was always so encouraging explaining that what I was doing wasn't easy and I was doing amazingly well for someone who hasn't been doing this for years. The encouragement was contagious, because the students in her class were encouraging each other as each of our acts started to take form. It was a great environment to learn and grow.

She isn't traditional about teaching steps, it's more about telling a story with each number. And not where your foot will be when you get to count 8. Because she taught that way it was easy to remember what I was doing from one moment to the next in my number. She encouraged students to embellish their costumes and really make them their own. Again super helpful suggestions as to how to make improvements to something as simple as a glove. With me being a bigger girl, I was super self conscious about my body, and the fact that I wasn't as flexible as most students. I was hopeless at stocking removal. Vixen made me feel like that was OK. I didn't have to remove stockings, there are other things I can do to enhance the number. It was all about what I was comfortable with, and nothing was a real requirement other than feeling good and presenting your true self.

At the end of my class I had a fully developed act, a fairly comprehensive costume, and a new found confidence that really helped me step into my new role as dancer. The transformation was very noticeable among the people who knew me best. I debuted my act a month after I finished the class and it was a big hit. Everyone who saw love it and was extremely proud of me. As a result I have performed this number multiple times in the last 3 years. In fact I'm performing next weekend and it's really been a crowd pleaser. I felt good about performing as a dancer. I do more solo dance numbers. I have since competed in a burlesque competition with a dance act. I have since returned to singing, but the skills I've gained from this class have enhanced even my singing performances.

I would recommend this class to anyone who wants to step out into something new. Especially if you're not the traditional body type. If you're anything like me you'll gain a love for your own body and embrace it as it is. I gained so much as result of taking this class. And I can never truly thank Vixen enough for everything she did to help me do this. I'm so happy I did this."
